    Dilfer, really? Who cares what he thinks. He is the one that came up with that stupid QB rating where Tim Tebow can end up with a better number than Aaron Rodgers..

    I want an article on what the new QBR says about each QB midseason. It has Alex Smith below McNabb and Stafford sandwiched between Jason Campbell and Matt Cassell. It’s awful.

    Dilfer is an idiot. Lucky enough to have played on a team with a great D – which meant his barely average talent was enuff.

    —————————————–

    Not having the physical talent to succeed at a position doesn’t make one incapable of analyzing or coaching that position.

    It’s kind of silly to even suggest so, especially when the NFL is littered with coaches who never succeeded as players.

    That’s because it was dreamed up by the Extreme Self Promotion Network.

  4. I always said it takes one to know one. So if noodle arm Dilfer says so, should i listen? He knows about sucking so maybe he is an expert on the subject..

  5. Trent Dilfer’s Stats for the first 3 years with Tampa Bay
    ——————–
    1994- 46.3% completion, 1 TDs, 6 INTs
    1995-54% completion, 4 TDs, 18 INTs
    1996-55.4% completion, 12 TDs, 19INTs

    year he won the Superbowl with the ravens
    ———————
    2000-59.3% completion, 1,502 passing yards, 12 TDs, 11 INTs

    I wonder what Trent Difler’s QBR is?

  6. The book aint out yet on Tebow. There is something f’n fundamentally wrong with this guy or he would have started the season for Denver and not bounced around like a rag doll.
    The question I would have is, is this guy capable of playing at a high level and taking the team to the playoffs, superbowl?

    Dont know that

  7. I agree with most of what he said, but I feel the guy should get at least a year to see if he gets better or stays the same. He has won 2 of 3 games and did it on a bad team that was bad before he started playing not to mention he lost their best receiver his first game. He may not make it, but he may. We wont know unless he gets the same shot as Stafford, Bradford, Dalton, Newton, and all the others that got their chance with support from the top down

  8. Yet another analyst struggling to make a name for himself with Tim Tebow. It’s old. Merril has sucked that well dry, Trent.

  9. complain on dilfer all u want. when he took over for tony banks in balto, they didnt lose again.

    all those great defenses in balto. they only won a super bowl with dilfer. not vinnie, elvis, or to this point, flacco.

    Dude….where are you from?

    Cause I ain’t never seen a well that requires sucking.

  11. Once again, WHAT is the motivation for this incredible rush to judgement on a young player who has started a whopping SIX games in the NFL?? No other 2nd year player player faces this scrutiny week in and week out.
    What motivates this Tebow obsession with the media??
    BTW Tebow will be a better NFL QB than Dilfer ever was. That boy stunk.

  12. Why is Trent Dilfer “an expert among experts”?

    I went and looked at his stats and he has NO room to talk. In 14 years he NEVER had a 3000 yard season, and had 113 touchdowns to 129 interceptions (as we all know an acceptable TD to INT ratio is 2 to1). He finished his career with a whopping 70.2 QB rating well below the average of 90. He only got the one Super Bowl ring he did because he was on a Baltimore team with a great defense.

    He needs to shut the F up. That is all…

  13. You gator boys don’t give up.
    Difer IS recognized as an expert by his peers.
    Teabag will make it one day. He is a great athlete even if he was a gator. If it wasn’t for Percy H he would not have one that heisman however.

    Go Noles!

  14. I never said Dilfer WASN’T recognized by his peers. What I asked was WHY? He’s wasn’t even a mediocre quarterback when he was active.

    He rode the coat tails of his defense. If he had played on a team with a defense that was average he wouldn’t have gotten close to a ring.

    So why is his critique of another player accepted with no question? That is what I don’t understand.

    If he was such a great quarterback with such great skills and technique, then why wasn’t he any better over the span of his career?
