[quote]NC bringing up the Jewish angle is pretty uncomfortable, though. Not what I'd expect from him.[/quote]
Not to get sidetracked, but it's a legit point to bring up from the Affinity scam angle. He started out by getting people in his inner circle(Jewish) to jump on the Madoff money train, and ...

Non-supporters chime in as well, although it's likely a moot point, since you oppose the death penalty in all cases I assume.
Here's the question: Would you support the death penalty for crimes like the one Bernie Madoff perpetuated for 2 decades?

Sure, but I would factor in turnovers too if we're arguing who's having the better season. I don't think YPA is the definitive stat to gauge a QB, but I do think it's better than total passing yards.
I would use a per attempt(passing & rushing) to see how their numbers stack up with regards to tu...

OK, so 180 or more than Cousins. Efficiency is more important than total passing yards. How can you argue otherwise?...

Cousins has 204 attempts this year, all the other QBs being mentioned are around 500 attempts. Try again, perhaps?...
