    Na dude, don't you remember I'm the guy that referred to Trevor Simeon as Joe Montana last season?

    But anyway why is it a big deal for me to give props to a player for playing so well after two games when somebody that I know constantly gave praise to a team in Los Angeles, saying that they were going to destroy the Broncos before the first down of the season was even played?

    I didn't see him complaining about the Oline at all because he wasn't He said the Oline sucks thats a statement . He complained about idiots who use stats specifically The "Pythagorean Theorem" as the end all to how good or bad a player or in this case a group of them are or are not playing. You have poor comprehension even with the spoken word I see.

    The eye test tells me that Trevor is more than capable of being our QB. My heart tells me that he is a good guy with the right type of mind for the job! I'm a Siemian guy all the way this NFL season.

    Hell yes! I absolutely love what I’m seeing and hearing about Trevor (especially coming from the players). His humility is something awesome, but he still possesses good leadership qualities when called upon. He puts other players first, but still leads…that’s special.

    I’ll see if I can dig this up, but I read something about an interaction Trevor had with Peyton as a rookie. Peyton would routinely challenge both players and coaches alike with their recall of specific plays and formations. When he first challenged Trevor, evidently Trevor gave him an immediate correct response, then promptly fired a challenge question back at Peyton. This apparently stunned other teammates that this 7th round third stringer had the wherewithal to throw it right back at Peyton Freaking Manning. Siemian has the brain and the tools to be something special. If he’s behind a respectable line with a respectable ground game, I think he can post some jaw-dropping stats. Those stats don’t lie.

    Statistics quantify what we already know. Tomorrow is just outside that window.

    And because this is smack...statistics (and the eye test) tell us that the Giants suck.

    What a dope! Everyone knows that when you calculate the effectiveness of the offensive line you use the momentum equation of P=MV.

    Even Archimedes Principle would have been a better guess-- a homeless crack addict is not even stupid enough to blurt out Pythagoras' equation.

    It's like when people last season would bring up Siemian's stats to argue that he wasn't a good qb...
    TS wasnt a good qb last year because the o line was awful and kubiak and dennisson were worthless

    I'm still taking heat for calling Trevor Siemian Joe Montana during the first game of the 2016 season. People always miss the point and they do the same with the eye test.

    Anyone that knows football should had realized I really was not calling him Joe Montana but moreless that I was referring to how well Siemian was performing by making such a statement. And how he has such a higher ceiling than what most consider him to have.

    I don't need anybody else to tell me what I saw or what they think I saw. I know more or less what I'm looking at and I'm saying right now that Trevor Simeon has a heck of a lot more to offer than what he shown thus far.

    However what he has shown thus far has been nothing short of spectacular in my book considering where he was drafted and the quarterback battles that he has had to endure behind such an unstable offensive line.
