I beg to differ. Sunday, the guy marched us down the field after starting from our own 1 yard line and actually hit Roddy in the hands for what would have been the game winner, but it was dropped. In fact, this season alone, if Roddy and other receivers focus and just catch the pass, we're sitting here talking about a 7-2 team.
Take a look at the Bears game 3 years ago. We all remember the throw and catch that set up the game winning field goal.
And even though it was flawwed, the 49ers game last year.
While he does have some flaws and kinks in his game that need to be worked out, this guy makes plays. No one can argue against that. He's much more than just a game manager.
You cherry picked that quotation CJN. I agree that he is great in the two minute offense and def earns the Matty Ice moniker at that time. Regretably, the rest fo the time he just seems like a game manager to me. He ha sengineered some simply awesome comebacks and this is what is so titilating about him. But this is a pattern of his from college as well and I aske dbefore we drafted him and I ask again, "If he is so great why do you have to have dramatic comebacks?" A silly query on the surface bu thow often do you see us whip a team from start to finish? It always seems like white knuckles to the end. Maybe it is just the Falcon in me but I recall so many times being on the wrong end of games where it was over at half time so the line, "All NFL games are close" doesn't really sit well with me..
