Media hype tool.. the variable of a football game are too vast to lay it all on this stat.



Didn't Brett get credit for a comeback, after the defense got a turnover, the offense ran two plays for 0 yards and kicked a FG?

More than likely.

I don't care whom it is applied to in terms of a QB... a comeback is far more than the accomplishment of the QB.

Basically.. I hate the emphasis places upon QB's period. They are just another cog in the machine.
The wolves will never lose sleep over the feelings of the sheep.

Hey. Easy on Jay Cutler. He's my 2nd favorite active QB. He loves us Packers. He's thrown us 15 INTs in 4 years and that's not even including the one game he missed (injury) and the one game we still have to play this year. Plus, he even threw us an INT in the Playoffs. If that isn't love, I don't know what is.

The Zombieslayer Wub Jay Cutler because Jay Cutler Wub the Packers.
