In response to BabeParilli's comment:
He is rated at the low end of QBs so far. He may well be an all-time great down the road.... but he hasn't showed that so far.
He has the same TD/INTs as Sanchez. Let's try to have some perspective.
I convinced the pundits are seeing exactly want they want to see here. He has one of the worst ratings in the league at 25th. Has very few TD's, a ton of interceptions and is 29th in the league in completion percentage.
The only thing he's at the top at is yards and attempts which are directly related. In fact any QB who had thrown as many times as him would have more yards because they are all more efficient passers other than Sanchez. Most teams won't let a guy playing that poorly keep throwing but the Colts do.
Maybe one day hell be good. I know Peyton stank his first year too and he turned out good, but not every QB that stinks his first year turns out to be great.
Who was that QB who won thenSB the first year they played?
shen you seen him play a game?
ive seen a little of 3. i think hes all that
I've seen three games. He looks OK to me but I'm the kind of guy who wants to see a lot more before I make claims about his greatness. To me he's done nothing more impressive than Mannings rookie year, or Newton's, or Brady's first year playing. In fact with how rookie QBs tend to come in and do fine in today's NFL (Newton, RG3, Dalton, etc.) I'm not convinced his "great" stats are any better than the average ones of QB's past.
Now if he came in and put up numbers similiar to a top veteran, or even an average veteran than I could see the praise. That is basically what was expected. I'm talking about completing 60% or more of passes and a 2-1 TD to INT ratio with a rating in the top 15 of the league. Those are really just average numbers but they would be impressive for a rookie.
But I just can't heap praise on a guy who was supposed to be NFL ready but has bottom of the NFL stats. His wins are impressive at 5-3 but not overly impressive so I'm still waiting before I make any decisions about how great he is.
As far as I'm concerned, he's a rookie and most of the time he plays like a rookie.
