    Don't bother me at all. Just a shame that obsession still exists.

    Re: The debate has just begun: arm strength

    A couple mid-range passes against Landover: one was sharp for a TD, the other was underthrown. Nothing in the Tampa game changes the debate. Not debating about McNair's accuracy thowing those safe little passes to get a 100 QB rating, but rather his ability to air it out. It still hasn't happened, and assumedly opponents scouts notice as well.

    Unless I blinked at Tampa and missed something!

    What pass was underthrown, the 35 yard pass to DVD?

    Not sure what game you were watching, but that pass was not underthrown.

    If Boller had ever shown the ability to make a play action fake and hit a receiver in stride like McNair did on that play I would have been jumping up and down for joy. Unfortunately, I don't think they would even trust him enough to call a play like that deep in our territory. They probably call a handoff to Jamal and punt.
    I have come to the conclusion that alot of our fans are so used to complaining about our past QB's that no matter how well they play and how many wins they get, they will still be looking for aspects of thier game to complain about.

    Steve McNair did not look perfect, and did not complete every pass in stride, he also led a few 3 and Outs on Offense, and has not yet attempted a pass over 50 yards. Let me know if I missed anything

    The reality of it is that it has taken Steven McNair one frigging game to accomplish what Boller has yet to do in his entire Ravens career, which is what I stated above. Who cares about arm strength as long as it is adequate and the QB is accurate?

    I believe Mcnair has the arm strength for long passes but is playing a conservative gameplan as he picks up the system.Don't forget he wasn't signed until after all the mini camps were over.Fassel is calling the plays and as soon as he is comfortable enough Mcnair will air it out some. Also remember Joe Montana made a living on short and intemediate routes.

    Wow, talk about an obsession -- Boller hasn't thrown a pass this season, and good ol' Tex still wants to talk about him.

    Getting back to our starting QB, I'm a little puzzled at some of McNair's long passes. He almost seems as if he's coming off an injury or a period of inactivity, because he looks a little rusty. Which doesn't make much sense, adimttedly, but that's how he looks on his long passes.

    But I really like his ability to evade a pass rush, which sadly is a requirement for whover our QB is. He did a nice job escaping pass rushers a few times today. He has a nice sense of where the rush is coming from, and can get away if given a chance. On a few occasions today he didn't even have a chance, but that wasn't his fault.

    I'm telling you HW, Oldfan has a new name. You can pick up on every trait. Johnny Unitas avatar, obsession with Boller, calling the guy names, and not being able to come into the main forums and talk about anything else. Even hijacking other threads into trying to talk about Boller (Rex Grossman thread). Wouldn't even bother with him.

    There is an ignore feature on this forum that I have taken full advantage of. Click on User CP at the top left hand corner and go down to the buddy/ignore list. Fill in the blanks.

    I can't remember if I've got six or seven people on my ignore list. Heck, four of 'em were on there before their first post.
