Can you post the link or page # on the magazine you read this for me? I have factually crushed their "stats" as bogus. I'm going to rip them a new one.

Drew Bledsoe's CAREER record vs teams with 10 or more wins:
5 wins, 34 (thats THIRTY FOUR) losses

its almost unbelievable to me, but thats what it says...if accurate its a really eye opening (and in a bad way) statistic
also, they then write this - what a bunch of Bozo's -
Street & Smith's Top 10 NFL Offseason Moves
By Steve Silverman
Reunited, Parcells has his man Bledsoe at the helm
Who else has made the right moves?
With the start of training camp and the completion of the 2005 NFL Draft, it’s time to look at some of the most important moves of the offseason. After considering hirings, firings, free-agent signings and draft choices, here are Street & Smith’s Top 10 offseason moves in the NFL.
1. Drew Bledsoe signed by the Dallas Cowboys
There’s significant pressure in Dallas for coach Bill Parcells to turn this team around. Not that there wasn’t before, but as Parcells enters his third season in partnership with owner Jerry Jones, nothing but success will be tolerated.
The Cowboys slipped to 6-10 last season and the idea of going to war with Drew Henson or ancient Vinny Testaverde behind center did not appeal to Parcells. As a result, the Cowboys signed Bledsoe to a three-year, $14 million deal.
The combination of Bledsoe and Parcells was successful in New England. While they were known for some tempestuous and public sideline battles, the Patriots won the AFC Championship Game in 1996 before losing to the Packers in Super Bowl XXXI.
Bledsoe got off to a terrible start with the Bills last year, but did much better in the second half of the season. He ended up completing 256 of 450 passes for 2,932 yards with 20 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. At 33, Bledsoe is hungry to show the NFL that he’s not over the hill and is capable of leading a team to a title.
“I’m not here just to renew acquaintances or to give the media a good story,” Bledsoe said. “My goal remains the same—to win a title. I’m going to do everything I can to get the Cowboys back to the postseason.”
