Last week the Dallas secondary gave up 312 yards and 4 TDs to Eli Manning and the Giants (an Eli Manning playing with a painful throwing shoulder injury). Today, Trent Green faced the same secondary and threw 4 INTs. Four. One, two, three, four.
Here's what I said about him in my 2007 predictions:
-He's a 37 year old quarterback on the decline
-He's an interception machine
-He's yet another cast-off QB taking the helm of this team
Today against Dallas, his passes were way off course, his throws had no torque whatsoever and his reads were atrocious. Only a spectacular catch in the endzone by Derek Hagan keeps Green's stat line from being a complete abortion.
I never liked the whole Green to Miami thing from the beginning, let alone giving up draft picks for him. And things don't get any easier from here on out schedule-wise.
Now we're 0-2. Historically speaking, teams that start the season 0-2 make the playoffs only 11% of the time. Trent Green is exactly who I thought he was.
