Good god. Okay how many people watch NFL Network? I love NFL network. It's easily my favorite network to watch. From all the classic NFL films to series like NFL's Top Ten and America's game, the NFL network is worth every penny. Throw it great analysts like Rich Eisen, Steve Mariucci, Michael Irvin, Rod Woodson, Mike Mayock, Brian Baldinger, Kurt Warner, and even Warren Sapp from time to time, and the NFL network becomes must see TV for any avid football fan.
But good googly moogly they need to get rid of Jamie Dukes.Now for those who don't know who Jamie Dukes, let me explain.
Jaimie is an analyst for NFL network (a former mediocre center for the falcons) who is featured rather often on many of the networks shows, mainly NFL Total Access.
Jaimie is known for being brash, loud, and in mu poinion ignorant on many subjects. Maybe not ignorant but he is usually pretty biased in his opinion. He has always favored Tom Brady over Manning, and he never really believed much in the Colts.
Now I have been following the NFL top 100 players of 2011 very closely now, and for the past couple of weeks every time Jamie Dukes opens his mouth he sounds like an idiot. A lot of it recently hasn't been Colts related whith one of the most unproffesional instances coming last week when DeMarcus Ware was on the show.
Jamie wouldn't shut his fat mouth on how DeMarcus Ware wasn't a leader, and how his stats didn't mean as much because the rest of his defense wasn't on his level. It was ridiculous, and DeMarcus Ware was insulted by it.
As a fan kindly put it on the NFL.com top 100 players blog
Did anyone hear Jamie Dukes dissing Demarcus Ware because of Dallas' team defense? It was unreal. He's lucky Ware didn't tear his limbs off.
But anyway that is all to just give you an idea of what type of guy Jamie Dukes is. What has me writing this fanpost is his latest rant on NFL Total Access.
When asked about who was better between Manning and Brady, Jamie goes on some huge rant about how Peyton has been surrounded with 8-9 1st round picks. Fran Charles, another anylyst, promptly points out that just because a person is a first round pick doesn't mean they are good. But no this doesn't stop Jaimie, as a matter of fact Jamie just ignores this and begins to yell louder.He starts to list the '8-9' players and starts with Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Edgerrin James, and he even has the nerve to throw Marshall Faulk in there.
MARSHALL FAULK!!!! Mannign played with Faulk for one season!! ONE FREAKIN SEASON!
Then Jamie goes to point out how Brady has done the more impressive job because he has "Made chicken salad, out of chicken stuffing." I apologize for the language, but what the fuck does that mean? I mean it is so ignorant. I don't mind people trying to make an argument for Brady, but please try and be smart about it. Personally as BBS said the argument is pretty much over for now. I don't even get into the argument anymore because it's silly. All I will say is that you measure AN INDIVIDUAL based on how much more he dominates his position in comparison to other QB's throughout history. Nobody has dominated the QB position like Manning, thus Manning is better. Simple as that. Yea Brady has more super bowls, but winning the Super Bowl is a team thing. Not an idividual accomplishment. I'll admit Brady turns it on in the playoffs (well not so much recenlty) but Manning DOMINATES the QB position like none other. Therefore he is the better QB.
