Slow Sports Day Syndrome

Mike opened the show with a bit of Rutgers, ignored his boy McCain's performance last night and then quickly moved ahead to jumping on the NY papers for comparing Eli Manning to Peyton:

"Here's what the problem is. If you have a slow day in October, this is what you come up with. You came up with "Is Eli better than Peyton.." there's somebody with too much time on their hands...I mean now we want to take Eli and in his short body of work, we want to put him ahead of his brother, who is already a first ballot Hall of Famer...(laughing) Is Eli better than Peyton already? (laughing)...I mean, that's where we're going?...Let me put this on the table: Eli is the what best quarterback in the NFL? I used to defend Eli, but now this is getting comical....But I now have to hear that Eli has now reached Peyton status?...You would rank Eli where?"

Uhh, Mike you just accused the writer who wrote this story as "somebody with too much time on their hands" and that you know it's a slow sports day when stories like this are being thrown around...But you end your rant by opening up what will most likely become an entire day long debate about Eli Manning...So in essence, you owe the writer of that article a big THANK YOU for providing content for you all day..

Can't listen today - what was the argument between Kim and Mike about Favre? Quick synopsis Showtime / NBT?

Showtime1 said...

The argument essentially is that Kim Jones is enamored with Farve's game b/c he is durable and he she thinks hes attractive. And she believes that the Packers this year with Farve would be better off than w/ Rodgers while Mike is saying that Farve had several times turned down the Packers on a return. Kim thinks Farve is immortal while Mike is telling her that he is overrated when comes to being "an All-time great." Kim thinks Farve is playing really well w/ the Jets, while Mike thinks he has been average at best and compiled these stats during one game against Arizona. And Kim fails to acknowledge the fact Farve blew the game last year against the Giants. And she thinks Brady is a pretty boy. Pretty long synopsis but this argument went on for a bout 25 mins. Carlin chimed in a few times to agree w/ Mike. "And thats all i have to say about that."

Thanks Showtime...Yeah don't call me Eddie C but I guess I gotta agree with Mike there.

Yea same here, i cant stand Farve and earlier in the show they put him in top 3.

My list is as follows:

1. Manning
2. Brady
3. Roethlisberger
4. Romo
5. E. Manning
6. D. McNabb
7. C. Palmer
8. D. Brees
9. P. Rivers
10. B. Farve

I think Farve right now is ten at best.
