Dear Warren Sapp. In my opinion, you are a broke, clueless, wanna-be analyst who is so miserable in his own life, you lash out at Tony Romo and the Cowboys.
The NFL Network recently did a segment titled: Best Quarterback in the NFC East?
Warren SappÂ selected RGIIIÂ who has only thrown 849 passes in the NFL, (hardly enough to establish him as a franchise QB). His sudden drop off in production in 2013 when he had to win with his arm, is a strong indicator he is not “That Guy”.
In 2013, RGIIIÂ threw 12 interceptions to only 16 touchdowns , finished the season with a passer rating of 82.1 and led the Redskins to a 3-13 season . Warren SappÂ said, Tony Romo has the best 4th quarter passer rating in all of NFL history, but he makes mistakes in the 4th quarter that costs his team games. (Name one NFL QB who doesn’t Mr Sapp?)
SappÂ went on to say he runs nose toÂ nose with the best, but it’s that one mistake at the end of the game costes (love the grammar Warren) his team games and you can’t have that. That’s the one bad taste in the defenses mouth.
Well Mr. Sapp, I hate to be the one to piss in your canteen, but having the highest 4th quarter passer rating of all time means he made the least amount of mistakes in the 4th quarter.
Let me start off by educating you on how the rating is determined.
The NFL passer rating formula includes four variables: completion percentage, yards per attempt, touchdowns per attempt, and interceptions per attempt. Each of those variables is scaledÂ to a value between 0 and 2.375, with 1.0 being statistically average (based on league data between 1960-1970). When the formula was first created, a 66.7 rating indicated an average performance, and a 100+ rating indicated an excellent performance. However, passing performance has improved steadily since then and in 2008 the league average rating was 83.2. A perfect passer rating (158.3) requires at least a 77.5% completion rate, 12.5+ yards per attempt, a touchdown on at least 11.875% of attempts, and no interceptions.
The four separate calculations can be expressed in the following equations:
- ATT = Number of passing attempts
- COMP = Number of completions
- YDS = Passing yards
- TD = Touchdown passes
- INT = Interceptions
Then, the above calculations are used to complete the passer rating:
In other words, mm(x) = x, with two exceptions:
1. If x < 0, then mm(x) = 0.
2. If x > 2.375, then mm(x) = 2.375.
In order to have that rating, Tony Romo had to have the best avg combination of all the above mentioned categories. To put it in to terms you may understand Mr. Sapp, you have proven to we the educated members of society, that you are in fact spewing nothing more than opinions you can’t back up with facts.
In my opinion, you are nothing more than a has been who has no credibility as a qualified, let alone objectiveÂ analyst. If you looked at all of theÂ facts objectively, you would see that Romo has a lot more successes than failures. He is tied with “Captain Comeback”Â Hall Of Fame QB Roger StaubachÂ with the most 4th quarter comeback/game winning drives (23) in Cowboys franchise history. He is the model of consistency by never having a season with a PR below 90, no running game to speak of andÂ has been the victim of a sub-par defense and poor clock management/play calling by the coaches on multiple occasions. How many times did he put them in position to win and the defense couldn’t stop anyone?
Remember the game against Denver you mentioned? The defense gave up 40 1st downs and the Broncos didn’t punt once!Â In fact, Manning had a pick in that game too. Romo finished the game with a higher passer rating as well. If the defense had stopped them even once, the Cowboys would have won. Do you realize howÂ foolish you are looking?
When The Cowboys lost to the Giants in the playoffs, no one will remember Patrick CraytonÂ dropping what would have been the game winning TD in the endzone, all the drive killing penalties, the poor play by the offensive line, or the poor clock management by the coaches that left him with 4th and long, no timeoutsÂ and less than 30 seconds on the clock: which forced him to throw a Hail Mary in to the endzone. Why? Because all that the haters like you will continue to say from that day forward is: they lost because that pass got intercepted. Anathema.
The article below educates all fans on the type of “BOY” you really are.
Per an article by Drew Jacobs (email@example.com) titled, Broke Warren Sapp Stiffed Waitress After Bankruptcy And Super Bowl Bet:
“It’s clear that Warren SappÂ doesn’t like being called “boy”. Sometimes that phrase can beÂ used as dismissive and condescending to black men. But not when a friggin’ waitress does it, you idiot!
SappÂ stiffed a waitress in Florida this week when he refused to tip her. According to Sapp, the service was terrible. The only evidence he has provided thus far, however, is that she called SappÂ and his friend boys when she greeted them. Sapp, who evidently took it to heart, acted like a child when he scrawled “Boys don’t tip” on the check. Maybe he’s just flat broke after filing for bankruptcy in 2012 and losing a reported $100,000 bet on the Super Bowl in February.”
According to the waitress, SappÂ was offendedÂ from the get go and was probably in a foul mood the whole time after that (via New York Daily News):
“I walked over to his table. It was him and one other guy and I said, ‘Hey boys, what I can I get you to drink?’ And he was like ‘We’re not boys. I’m a man.’ I mean, saying ‘Hey men, what do you want to drink?’ sounds kind of weird, I think. I go with ‘boys’ a lot. It sounds more youthful.”
Sapp sounds like he’s just being a whiner, which isn’t surprising if he gets upset when waitresses do their job.”
At the end of the day Warren, Tony Romo is the quarterback of the second largest sports franchise in the world, worth $108 million bucks, plays golf with Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods etc, and he’s married to a beautiful model. I really don’t think he gives a rats ass what a broke has been like you has to say.
Ps. I am certain he isn’t too broke or too cheap to tip the waitress when he goes out either. Enough said.
Peace, Love and Happiness, Cas.
