You could have ended your post, without the last sentence, and there probably wouldn't have been a response, it ends there.
But that wasn't your intention, that much is obvious. The smarmy "I'm the victim" routine is becoming transparent, no matter how hard Jordy waves his pom poms, he's just still butthurt from being owned all week by me and others on this board.
The entire 90's have been my favorite era of football (the way the game was played, not in regards to being a Jets fan) and there's no way Jeff George ranks as a top 10 QB of the 1990's.
Joe Montana: His 4 years of the 90's were more successful than Jeff's entire career.
I'd even take QB's such as Rich Gannon and a prime Mark Brunell of the 90's over George. With all that said, he did have a cannon for an arm. He reminds me of Jay Cutler of today, and no way Cutler ranks as a top 10 QB of the 2000's.
All these guys had cannon arms. George was a little better than these guys, had all the talent in the world, but was a jerk that didn't command a knowledge of the game, respect of his teammates, and a desire to be a winner.
Chad Pennington, with his rinky dink arm, was a way better QB than Jeff George ever was.
Shut up old man, you're senile. You call people names then say big deal before complaining that they called you names. You think you're the JI police, calling out everything you decide is wrong.
Then get pissed because I, along with almost everyone in this thread, has called you out for the same things.
I actually argue with very few. You, Rah Rah and DWC take up the vast majority of it. It just seems like more because the 3 of you never shut up.
Where did I call you a name? I challenged what you said (like I told you I would because you talk like such a know-it-all) and you respond with name-calling. I back up what I say with facts and links. Or at least say it's my opinion. You like to throw **** out there and hope some of it sticks or no one notices that you're wrong. Or no one wants to challenge you because you like to play the bully like Rah Rah does.
Like I said. You are one thing and that is consistent.
I've seen Jeff George and even Browning Nagle run an NFL offense, but never Ryan Mallet. Have you?
Hopefully you're not expecting "Ryan Mallet" to become NE's potential replacement to Tom Brady. That could become a disaster waiting to happen. He's a 3rd round draft pick who's already 24 years of age (not what you consider a spring chicken). By the time Brady retires (4-5 years from now) he'll be 28-29 years old with just about zero real-time-speed in regards to professional playing time on an NFL level. Preseason quarters and the practice fields can't compare. This isn't an Aaron Rodgers/Brett Favre type of situation, so let's not act like it is; Aaron Rodgers was starting under center at the age of 23/24. The same can't (and won't) be said for Ryan Mallet. I'm not sure of any team that would actually trade for a 25-26 year old 3rd rounder, and I'm not quite sure that Ryan Mallet want's to spend the majority of his young career backing up Tom Brady. Chances are, he'll leave as a free agent ala the Patriots currently developing his quarterback talents for another team.

See? I knew we would eventually find common ground.
And to answer Philly Statz, no, i don't expect Mallet to be the Pats next franchise QB, but it wouldn't surprise me to see a high 2nd round pick resulting from his 3rd round slot. And while we wait, he's added insurance in case Brady gets hurt and Hoyer craps the bed. Certainly more insurance than a 60 year old Brunnel was for you guys last year. Besides, we like his swag and 'tude.
