Found January 16, 2012 on Razzball Football:
So what I did here was extrapolate how many fantasy points quarterbacks would have if they started all 16 games. To make this list you either have to have played 8+ games or have been drafted in fantasy leagues in the top 24 QBs which really is only Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb. So unfortunately I didn’t add Matt Flynn but if I had he would have averaged 44 fantasy points a game for a hefty total of 704 fantasy points! He also would have had over 8,000 yards and 90 touchdowns which may have broken a record or two. It’s blatantly obvious that he should have played against the Giants in the playoffs!

Credit to Eli Manning was overdue

Being both a big mouth and a football-obsessed member of the media for 18 years, I have spent a fair amount of time trying to figure things out in the NFL. Over 3,100 episodes of the Bob and Dan show since 1999 on Sportsradio 1310 the Ticket on Dallas airwaves at three hours per show has put us dangerously close to the Malcolm Gladwell "10,000" hour rule. That rule argues...

Eli Manning Leaves Practice Early With "Illness"

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning left Wednesday's practice early because of symptoms that head coach Tom Coughlin called "a stomach bug, hopefully a 24-hour deal."

Giants-49ers NFC Championship Game Matchup Features Tale of Two #1′s: Eli Manning and Alex Smith

The 15-1 Green Bay Packers (who peaked in September-November)  have indeed been exited from the NFL Playoffs by the New York Giants (who are peaking now), and Hakeem Nicks was indeed wide open on an end-of-half Hail Mary. So much for the Green Bay dynasty; as former GM Ron Wolf would say, the 2011 Packers proved to be just a fart in the wind. Deal with it. The silver lining is...

Archie: Peyton wants to stay

If that doesn’t work and he can get healthy we’ll...

Defense Still Wins Championships

The year of the quarterback: fans thought 2009 was that season with ten quarterbacks amassing 4,000 yards or more. QB’s such as Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees made it look easy, dropping balls into places where they’d never been before. Even QB Kyle Orton, who seemingly couldn’t throw the ball effectively downfield, passed for 3,802 yards in 2009. But quarterback...
