    Griese is an excellent QB and his stats speak for themselves. In Denver he was a scapegoat for the Defense, which was the real cause of at least two mediocre seasons during his stint with us.

    Please tell me you are joking dude? If not, please refrain from discussing the intangiables of quarterbacking in the NFL from this point in.

    Only a know-nothing ignoramus would blame Griese for Denver's failings during his stint as our starting QB. Maybe you should stick to watching and commenting on European football, because you just embarrass yourself when you pretend to be an authority on the American game.

    Under Griese in '02, Denver had the #2 ranked Offense in the league. Only Oakland was better and then only fractionally so – Denver had 6,090 total yards, Oakland had 6,237.

    Griese also had a 66.7 completion percentage. And while our offense was scoring 24.5 pts per game, our defense was giving up 21.5.

    While Griese threw only 15 TDs, he also threw only 15 INTs, and the fact that Denver still managed over 6,000 yards (3,214 yds of that came thanks to Brian’s arm) says that he was not only effective in moving the team, but that an outstanding running game lowered his overall numbers.

    Denver’s Defense was also ranked #2, but it was massive breakdowns in the defensive secondary and along the defensive front (remember the idiotic 1 man rushes against Oakland?) that caused several important losses (like that humiliating defeat to Oakland). The defense also allowed one fewer point than the offense scored.

    The previous year, 2001, Griese threw for 23 TDs and 19 INTs. The offense put up only 4817 yds – which would make them the 21st ranked offense – , but Griese’s arm counted for 2,827 yards of that. Even with the lowered output in yardage, Griese still managed to put up 21.3 pts per game – which really makes them the #10 ranked offense – , while the supposedly #4 ranked defense gave up 21. 2 pts per game – which really makes them the #12 ranked defense.

    During the ‘01 season Denver’s O was also faced with an avalanche of injuries, yet poor pathetic Brian Griese still had the offense outperforming the defense in the only area that matters – scoring.

    And before you rag on Griese for his ‘01 INTs, that same year Kurt Warner threw 22 INTs and Peyton Manning threw 23.

    So now we’re up to the modern age and Plummer is a hero where Griese was a fop. But Plummer has yet to match Griese’s performance and benefitted from 1. A FAR healthier offense and 2. The departure of Ray Rhodes and his moronic defensive schemes, which overcame offensive excellence the previous two seasons.

    Plummer threw for only 2,182 yds last years with only 15 TDs, and his completion percentage was lower than Griese’s in the previous two seasons. The offense as a whole had a pretty nice 5598 yds total, but still isn’t up to what Griese squeezed out of it the previous year.

    Plummer and the offense scored 23.8 points per game, not as good as Griese’s numbers from the year before. But Denver still went to the playoffs. Why? Because the defense only allowed 18.8 pts per game.


    Now, I’ll say it again for those too slow to pick it up before now, or too lazy to do the research on their own; Denver did not fail in ‘01 and ‘02 because of Brian Griese, they failed because of the defense. They also did not succeed in ‘03 because the replaced Griese with Plummer. They succeeded because they got rid of Ray Rhodes and the defense finally started holding up its end of things.


    If it makes you feel better to blame Denver’s recent mediocrity on Brian Griese, great. But don’t sit there and pretend that you know anything about football or that anyone who disagrees with you doesn’t.

    "dude, u really think anyone read that after you called griese a great QB?"

    Wow. Talk about a snappy comeback. I'm awed.

    If you're too dim to prove your point, we understand. You don't have to embarass yourself by hiding behind a childish "oh huh!" defense.

    Now, run off and finish playing with your dollies. Don't you trouble your wittle head with any nasty, wasty facts.

    LOL, ok, I think somewhere in this brown nose to Bob and Brian Griese, you called me an idiot....So I will retort to you....

    First of all, I WAS A QB, I played football at a high level for 6 years.....

    So I DO KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT PRICK......

    1. Stats, stats, stats....

    Why did Griese have a 66% completion percentage with low yardage?

    He threw 5 yard passes! He is the epitomy of dink and dunk offense, he rarely took chances downfield...when he did..GUESS WHAT!!??? HE THREW INTS! He lacks a big time arm....

    2. He played with no heart.

    When we got down, he was at his WORST. He wasn't a leader, he didn't WANT to be a leader.....He pissed me off to watch....

    3. STATS MEAN SQUAT WHEN YOU LOSE BALL GAMES BUD!

    Elway had a relatively LOW rating during his first 10 seasons in the NFL.....YET, we made it to 3 Super Bowls....Why is this????

    Heart, downfield passing, MAKING PLAYS WHEN HE HAD TO!!!!


    NONE OF THESE QUALITIES DOES GRIESE POSSESS...NOT A ONE.

    So do yourself a favor, jump on the Tampa bandwagon, and learn something about the technicalities of playing QB, and NOT on Madden 2004.....Playing QB means you have to make plays, lead your team, and never be afraid to take chances...Do WHATEVER it takes to win a game for your team.....

    You can sign Griese, I'll take Jake ANY DAY of the week over him.


    Thanks anyway clown.
    Eeerrrrrr.......
