    I watch him play all the time. Where do you think the statistics come? It's from him being the only worthwhile player on the field.

    the point of that entire post is that a QB can either elevate the players around him or he cant... Dilfer couldnt...and cousins cannot...so the team around him needs to be fantastic in order for him to win it all.
    have you watched Dak Prescott?? he does not have "IT"... he can win on a powerhouse team but he cant produce wins when the team around him dwindles.

    some players have it and some dont...some are special and some aint...cousins is a really good qb... but he aint special

    In your argument, Dilfer could, because in one year they won the Super Bowl. He "elevated" his team to a winning season. However, we all know that they won because of an all time defense. If Cousins had the greatest defense of all time, and a running back that ran for 2,000 yards I'm sure he'd have looked "special," or "elevating," too.

    In a team sport, this doesn't happen in a vacuum.

    I’d rather give Jimmy G that kind of $$$ instead of Cousins.

    I wanted Big Red to draft him then trade for him the last 2 years. Once they get him some more weapons he will be a top 10 QB in this league imo.

    right..all time defense...
    but then guys like Brady and Rodgers win super bowls without having all world teams around them.
    Its really simple.... game is tied,...1:15 left on the clock...and your team has the ball on your own 20 with only 1 TO left...

    are you thinking OT??

    Or are you thinking, "yeah, we got this ****" ?

    while it didnt work out for them this time you can bet that Pats fans all over the world thought they were about to win another SB when they were in a situation like that last week.

    when we had an aging Kurt Warner we always thought we were about to win those... hell, we even thought Palmer would get us in FG range for a win..... but those are the only two guys since Jake...and we wouldnt have been in that position if Jake hadnt played so crazy.

    Steelers fans think they are winning it... Right now Niners fans think so too, just like they did in the Montana/Young days.

    but with Kirk Cousins under center you gotta be thinking, "okay, we can win this in OT"

    That simple test tells you everything you need to know about a QB.

    Let's overpay for a guy who's done absolutely nothing in his career.

    Not a real big body of work. We'll see how he does with a full schedule. People are making him out to be the 2nd coming. We'll see just how good.

    You're right, I was just razzin' ya'. And, the 49ers are taking a risk but I was really impressed with Garappolo. Maybe it's just because I expected him to crash and burn outside of NE and he did the exact opposite. Not only did he not crash, he looked really good and inspired his teammates. Other QB's have come out of the gate fast and then faded or disappeared but JG seemed to be legit and not just riding a gimmick or athletic ability.

    As you say, we'll see.

    Agreed, but I am for offering 4 first round picks to Cleveland for the #1 pick. Or two 1sts, a 3rd and David Johnson.

    I just get tired of people complaining about the price of FA QBs, because that is the price. you can either pay it, or continue to suck. Same with drafting a QB. Move up or sit at 15 and get stuck with a guy who will get your coach fired.

    If you want to lose your job as a coach and a GM, THAT is certainly the way.
