Brady Magnificent Again

As you can see, Tom Brady had a magnificent weekend.  Cam Newton had a very nice weekend, but by QBER standards, he was not even the best rookie QB (that was the fire headed Andy Dalton of Cincinnati).

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers continued his outstanding play.  He is just a great quarterback.  Rarely does he make questionable decisions with the football, and his accuracy is uncanny.

When will the Kansas City Chiefs bail on the whole Matt Cassell experiment? He sucks!  He has been terrible throughout his KC career, and last week he was just an embarrassment.

Rex Grossman and Alex Smith each resorted to form.  After terrific opening weeks, both QBs fell back to their usual below average standards. 

Why on Earth did the Jacksonville Jaguars opt for this McOwn over their former QB David Gerrard?  Gerrard was an average to above average QB, and McOwn… isn’t.  He was brutal with a capital “B” on Sunday.
