He will never win even a division championship...until he demands a trade.
Have you got a little man-crush on Hollywood?No, I've just watched him play for a long time, he went to high school about 5 miles from me. Remember when I was pulling for Grootegoed? Same reasons..BTW, reversing the field on me is kinda lame..
For a little perspectiveâ€¦Leinart was making short throws to wide open receivers against a very soft Bear defense in the first quarter. He completed his first eight passes, 9 of first 11, including both TDâ€™s. His first incompletion was on the interception that was overturned. The rest of the game he was 16/36â€¦14/20 in the first half and 10/24 in the second half. Leinart's performance may have been good for a rookie, but was average overall.
hehehehehe What happened to Grootegoed?
How can you compare a top 10 pick to a 6th rounder?
For a little perspective...I might suggest that you would be the wrong guy to go to.Â "His first incompletion was on the interception that was overturned"....uuum, that would make it an incomplete pass and not an interception, wouldn't it?And considering that his performance was against the scary-good bears defense AND the fact that he was making his second start made the performance all the more remarkable.Â Look, I'm a longhorn, so I'm a simms and young homer....I got nothing in rooting for Leinart.Â But to suggest that his performance was anything less than remarkable is just flat out missing the obvious.Â For whatever reason.
and it appears by this particular definition of the word, that leaders actually learn to lead, and are not naturally born.Â Lets face it, Gradkowski isn't exacty a George S. Patton here...
People can learn to lead but it doesn't make them great leaders.Â Some people make great leaders and it isn't something that was taught, it is just their personality and charisma.Â
Brady came out of Michigan. Gradkowski came out of Toledo. Whereas your point about 1st round/6th round is true, the level of play between a Toledo and a Michigan is very different. You play your schedule, but Leinart (and Brady) played against Notre Dame, Washington, etc. Gradkowski played against Bowling Green; Eastern Michigan. You might be able to put up an argument that there is a difference between Leinart and Gradkowski that wasn't present for McNabb and Brady (although Syracuse has its fair share of Rutgers and Wyoming ).
Who has the better tools? Leinart BY FAR and for that reason he wouldve been the 1st overall pick in 05 and was 10 in 06. whoever doenst think so is just being a crazy homer. But no one at least at this moment can be anything more than ecstatic over what Gradkowski is doing.
