I have no idea whether The Golden Calf of Bristol "has what it takes to win in the future," but I know that he's doing a solid enough job of it right now. Does an NFL Defense really need a full offseason to gameplan for The Golden Calf of Bristol and that offensive playset? If so, then I would say that speaks volumes enough as to The Golden Calf of Bristol's effectiveness.
Mind you, I don't think an NFL Defense needs an offseason to gameplan a QB...
I doubt it takes all offseason either, but I'm very sure that after the fact an offseason has passed, The Golden Calf of Bristol will come falling to earth.. should he be that effective, congrats to him. however, what he does now doesn't mean a whole lot in the future when that team still needs a real QB completing more than 20 passes a game.. (The Golden Calf of Bristol completing an average of 10 so far)
That wildcat offense in Miami lasted a few seasons, but still, lost it's effectiveness after teams started figuring out how to stop it.. they are using the option, and as Carolina has shown, it fugs with defenses.. I think some teams, i.e. Oakland fell asleep and what happens all the time in the NFL, any given Sunday they can win..
Jets is maybe the most impressive win, but that team is as inconsistent as anyone in the league.. they have major problems offensively if they are to be considered a true playoff team.. Chargers, they are about as bad as the Chiefs at the moment..
should The Golden Calf of Bristol be forced to throw more than 20 times a game, he better be able to keep up this "winning now" or else this "winning.... now" doesn't mean Ish as far as his longevity is concerned..
I give him props for his 5-1... but if the question you asked remains and the qualification must be to pass for more than 20 times a game, I think I want a lot more technically sound in my QB...
it's just hard for me to believe a cat completing the ball less than 10 times a game is really going to keep up this "winning now"..
