[edit] I'm gonna be a quarterback when I grow up!

Li'l Brudder's remark about throwing for 2,000 yards as an NFL quarterback is only 125 yards a game. A good player can throw twice that.

Arguments for:

  • To the football-savvy, yardage totals in the thousands tend to imply a season total.
  • By way of example, 2004 top rated NFL quaterback Peyton Manning threw for 4557 yards.
  • Kids (and Li'l Brudders) want to be "just like" famous athletes (e.g. NFL quarterbacks) when they "grow up."

Arguments against:
"I'm gonna be a quarterback when I grow up! I'm gonna throw for 2,000 yards!"

  • Nowhere does he say NFL quarterback.
  • Nowhere does he say the yards would come in one season; he could have meant in one game.
  • It wasn't even really Li'l Brudder speaking.

Additional comments:

  • Even if it is a season total, so what? He's got one leg! If he threw for two yards that would still be impressive.
  • The fact is just trying to say that Lil' Brudder isn't aiming as high as he thinks he is, which I guess isn't surprising!
    • Right, but if it's interpreted as being in one game, which seems equally as valid, then he's aiming quite high indeed!
