In response to p-mike's comment:
I don't really have much of an opinion on McCarron. The word "adequate" keeps wanting to rear its ugly head and . . . well . . . that's not much of an endorsement, but what this thread really got me thinking about was, unlesss maybe you're Steve Young or somebody, do you really want to be the guy who comes in here and "replaces" Tom Brady.
Good luck with that.
Yeah, but don't forget TB didn't even get THAT much of an endorsement!
They said TB had no arm strength, but he's done just fine....McCarron has played for a loaded team all four years he played (yep, 4 years a starter), but he's also played in a conference that has teams that could actually play better than a few teams in the NFL!...The SEC is the toughest NCAA league, and he lost, what, 1 game, or was it 2, during his 4 years playing at Alabama...he's always stayed cool in the pocket, he's always made good reads, he's always made very good deep and sideline throws...heck, he even picks girlfriends like TB does....
Now I'm not saying that he'll be the next TB...that's foolish...but why would anyone say that...TB is a HOFer, one of the best, if not THE best of all time...but the kid is pretty good against the best competition...he's worth a try...and personally I think if he comes into camp, he beats out Mallet...by a wide margin...right now, you'd be EXTREMELY lucky to get a 4th for Mallet...if you could, you'd better grab it before they change their minds.
