    I agree with most of what you said, but as far as him beating good teams goes... I completely disagree. I have a hard time remembering him beating a genuinely good (playoff) team.

    Don't count the Cards game. Leinart was QB. That was an incredible drive, and one of the best games I've been to, but we would've lost if Warner played.

    Last year, with the Eagles, he beat the Giants... That may be the only time he beat a good team. But again, the Giants sucked in the regular season.

    Vince continually got better in our system though, and he was a above average starting QB for 2009 and 2010 when he actually played. I would have put him in the top 15 qb's easily at most points during those years.

    The reason he was so bad for the Eagles and why nobody wants him now is because he's basically dumb and it takes him years to learn a system. He has the talent but not the brains or mentality to be a QB in the NFL unless hes coddled.

    I am almost 100% positive he had a horrible record against winning teams.

    I don't care to look or back it up, because I no longer care about VY, and neither should anyone else.

    VY is 8-14 against winning teams... and that includes two W's against the Colts backups and the Cardinals with Leinart at QB.

    That's pretty real bad, folks.

    Nah, he implied VY was only as good as Peyton Manning once, not better. :)

    Guys why don't you get real? while vince was in here we were at least competitive. Now we are laughing stock material!

    I don't ****ing care how much of a diva he was, he actually made games interesting. If we had another guy who could outplay him and give us better results then great! But we didn't.

    I won't claim that guy as a bust, ryan leaf is a bust...Vince had his moments. And there is a reason as to why our most important players back then wanted him back cj and britt, because they liked him as the QB. Cook did too..if our best weapons wanted him in there, is because he opened things up for them.
