    “Eagles QB Donovan McNabb spent his 33rd birthday thinking about his legacy. ”
    What a worthless piece of fluff.
    “Then there are career victories, the statistic McNabb appreciates the most. With an 86-48-1 record, McNabb has the third-highest winning percentage (.641) among active quarterbacks. Brady (94-27, .777) tops the list while Manning (127-59-3, .683) is next.”
    Romo’s winning percentage is .693.

    “Broncos WR Brandon Marshall has become the legal guardian for his 17-year-old cousin, moving him to Denver from a bad situation in Pittsburgh.”
    That’s got to be a pretty damn bad situation if the court says living with Brandon Marshall is a better environment.

    “VoxVeritas says:

    Romo’s winning percentage is .693.”
    He’s started 39 games. Come back once his NFL pubic hair has started growing in.
    And it’s .692. You can’t round .0003 up, you dipshit.

    Aww crap, scratch that. It’s actually .694.
    Stats weren’t up-to-date.

    “Jets WR Braylon Edwards took issue with those who said he dropped passes in the last two games.”
    dude’s to the point where he’s starting to make excuses for dropping the pass?
    thats the problem with Braylon Edwards, nothing is ever his fault.
    said 1 wasn’t a drop because Reggie Nelson “almost broke his ribs”? I thought a WR was supposed to make the catch anyways, he must not remember playing with Jurevicius, since Joe always made the catch, regardless of the hit

    “He’s started 39 games. Come back once his NFL pubic hair has started growing in.”
    He’s started 49 games.
    2006 – 10 starts
    2007 – 16
    2008 – 13
    2009 – 10
    = 49. Come back when you learn simple math.
    The NFL says that a QB has to have 1500 passing attempts to make the books. Romo has 1637. I don’t make the rules, I just live by them.
    “And it’s .692. You can’t round .0003 up, you dipshit.”
    His winning percentage is actually .69387755, dummy. I actually rounded down. Buy a calculator and STFU until you learn how to use it.

    It’s kind of clear they used 100 decisions as the benchmark.
    Otherwise Roethlisberger would rank in the top 3, as would Rivers (.690).
