You may be thinking, “Why on Earth is Kyle Boller a headlining image in the year 2016?” It’s because the embarrassing blowout last night by the Indinapolis Colts on the New York Jets brought up old feelings.
Here I have two statlines from a Green Bay Packers at Baltimore Ravens Monday Night game. One statline is Kyle Boller, the other, Brett Favre.
Quarterback 1: 14/29 | 144 Yards | 0 TD | 2 INT | QBR 34.3
Quarterback 2: 19/27 | 253 Yards | 3 TD | 0 INT | QBR 136.8
Kyle Boller was QB 2 that night, and playing like the #1 quarterback in the NFL. It was such a blowout a young Aaron Rodgers was put into the game at the start of the fourth quarter. His second play, a strip sack from Adalius Thomas recovered by Bart Scott. If that’s a bad start, the ending of the game for Rodgers was even worse; with only thirty seconds left in the game Chad Williams strip sacked Rodgers and Adalius Thomas scooped it up for a 35 yard touchdown!
Biggest blowout in MNF history: Ravens over Packers 48-3 in 2005. Kyle Boller (!!!) had three TDs that night.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) December 6, 2016
The final score still stands as the biggest Monday Night Football blowout: 48-3. A glorious December night at M&T Bank Stadium.
