What if I told you that your quarterback, through the equivalent of the first 4 games of his career, completed 61% of his passes, throwing 6 touchdowns and only 1 interception. What if those games were played with 2nd and 3rd team offenses and receivers who shouldn't be allowed to look at a football. What if the opposing team were playing their starters in hopes of winning the game?
Ladies and gentlemen... Jim Sorgi.
I've seen a lot of "Sorgi sucks" comments around here the past few months and I just don't get it. Is everyone pissed that we lost to the Titans? Do you really think that was on his shoulders? We gave Peyton a free pass in the New England game when he was throwing to Moorehead and Aromashodu, so why is Sorgi blamed? The guy has thrown 126 passes in his career and we're ready to evaluate him? We're ready to get rid of a QB who's only lost one fumble and thrown one interception in his entire career???? I'm just struggling to figure out what he's done wrong.
Now, I'm not saying he's the 2nd coming of Peyton Manning, but who are you going to get that's better than Sorgi? You can waste a draft pick on a QB, but why? He'll be 32 before Peyton retires.
Would you really feel comfortable with anyone else under center besides Manning? Honestly, it doesn't matter who's back there if Manning isn't. I say we use the draft to build depth at positions who might actually have a chance at making the active roster.
