    Archie Manning (from Wikipedia):
    After college he was selected in the 1971 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints with the second overall selection. The Saints were at that time – and throughout Manning's stay there – one of the worst teams in the league, and Manning's supporters have often said that this was the reason that his career was less successful than it otherwise might have been; while his critics have put a considerable amount of blame on him for the team's lack of success. It seems very likely that if sacks had been an official statistic throughout his NFL career, there would probably have been more recorded against him than against any other player.

    Manning played for the Saints for ten full seasons, none of them winning. In 1972 he led the league in pass attempts and completions, and led the NFC in passing yards, though the team's record was only 2-11-1; in 1978 he was named the NFC Player of the Year by UPI, despite the team's 7-9 record. That same year Archie was also named All-NFC by both the UPI and The Sporting News.

    Manning was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1978 and 1979. He went on to conclude his career with the Houston Oilers (1982-83) and the Minnesota Vikings (1983-84), where the teams posted a collective record of 6-35. He ended his 13-year career having completed 2011 of 3642 passes for 23,911 yards and 125 touchdowns, with 173 interceptions. He also rushed for 2197 yards and 18 touchdowns. His 2011 completions ranked 17th in NFL history upon his retirement.

    Ryan Leaf sucked. Heath Shuler sucked. I don't put Archie Manning into the same category as those losers.

    Where did I mention Leaf and Shuler?
    You didn't. You said "Sucked". I brought up those two as prime examples of QBs who sucked. And I hoped to contrast Archie Manning against them as an example of someone who did not suck.

    Manning sucked.

    Shuler and Leaf "majorly" sucked.

    Better?

    Nope.

    "Sucked" should be reserved for those who truly are putrid, not merely mediocre.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I am with you Ultra, I can't stand Eli but I think it is also related to the fact that I hate Shockey and the Giants in general.
