Ray Lewis Is An Idiot

"I don't ever want to turn it into a black-white issue. But it would really puzzle me, seriously, if anybody would ever tell Brett Favre...if anybody would ever tell Peyton Manning not to walk into the Indianapolis facility. No. I can never understand that, and I never will because it's heartless. It's heartless to do a man like that without an explanation."

Well Ray, let me explain it to you. Here are the Titan's records for the last 2 years while McNair was behind center.
2005: 4-12
2004: 5-11

In 2005 Steve McNair completed 61.3% of his passes for 16 TD's and 11 picks with a rating of 82.4. In 2004 he completed only 60% of his passes for only 8 Touchdowns and 9 interceptions, for a rating of 73.1. Billy Volek (The back-up QB) played most of the Games for the Titans that season and got a QB rating of 87.1.

Brett Favre in 2005 Brett completed again, 61.3% of his passes, but for 20 TD's and 29 picks( Rating of 70.9). However in 2004 he completed 64.1% of his passes for 30 TD's and only 17 Interceptions. He finished the season with a rating of 92.4. The packers finished the 2004 season 10-6.

Manning tops them all with these stats:
2005: Manning completed 67.3% of his passes for 3,747 yards, 28 Touchdowns, and only 10 interceptions. The Colts also went on to finish the regular season 14-2.
2004: Manning completes 67.6% of his passes for 4,557 yard, and sets the NFL record at 49 Touchdown passes in a single season, while only throwing again, 10 interceptions. Manning finished the season with a 121.1 QB rating, and The Colts finish the season 12-4.

This season here are the rankings for QB's (Winner in the stat in bold):
Peyton Manning: 65.1% Pass Completion, 2,291 yards, 17 TD's, 3 Interceptions, QB Rating of 106.0
Brett Favre: 57.7% Pass Completion, 1,948 Yards, 11 TD's, 7 Interceptions, QB Rating of 78.8
Steve McNair: 59.6% Pass Completion, 1,319 yards, 7 TD's, 7 Interceptions, QB Rating of 73.8

Ray, THAT is why the Titans dropped McNair.
