That could get us in the playoffs. one more TD per game. Considering that we will field at least a somewhat professional Offense with an actual Offense Line, this is at least possible. But Allen needs to be able to hit the broad side of a barn, especially after identifying which barn to throw at. lets see...
    That would be great, with the exception being that your QB cannot lead the team in rushing this year.

    Why is it only championships that matter? Was Calvin Johnson not great, or Barry Sanders, or any number of players who went to Canton without winning a championship?

    Calvin Johnson put up great numbers without the benefit of a running game. In other words, even though the defense knew Detroit was throwing the ball he still did his job at an exceptionally high level. That's pretty remarkable. But, they didn't win a super bowl so the numbers mean nothing?

    It's Lit logic, it doesn't have to make sense. According to his logic, Dan Marino was nothing because he didn't win the super bowl.

    It's not Calvin Johnson's fault he was on a bad team and succeeded as a WR even when he was double and triple-teamed. It's not Barry Sanders fault he was on a bad team and still dominated as a RB even when defenses game planned to stop him.

    Now remind us, how many rings does that “superior” franchise have over Cleveland?
    Which franchise has won more games the past 10 years Cleveland or Atlanta?

    Good players win awards, good teams win super bowls (sometimes). ;-)

    What does that matter? He was a great player for a lot of years. And the point was that swinging and missing at a certain position shouldn't stop you from drafting a good player.
