What team has bounced back immediately from a failed #1 QB?


None, but we are special.

Raiders nearly made the playoffs this year.

They play in the shitty AFC West. A good high school team could make a run at that division title.

You're reaching, again. But yea after 4-12, 4-12 and 5-11, last year they were the John Fox Carolina Panthers at 8-8. This after trading for a QB and cutting the bust. Sure... they ALMOST made the playoffs. Remember, we are not in the AFCW.

I hope I'm wrong, I really do, but I have the same feeling about Cam that I had about Vince Young coming out of Texas...great talent, awesome college player, but so-so pro.

IF the Panthers pick him, I hope he proves me wrong! PLEASE, prove me wrong, Newt!

Thing that sets Cam apart from Young coming out of College is that Cam is already a much better passer then Young was.

A mixture of different guys. i think he has Freeman's arm and size, but he has a little less speed than Young. i dont think his running is going to be as good as some want or think which means he will have to use that arm of his more.

People talk about Vince Young as a bust. Vince Young would have been one of the most successful young QB's in the league if he had his head screwed on straight.

VY's QB rating last year was like 103. If he wasn't a headcase, a lot of teams would be looking for the next Vince Young.
