Overreacting to rookie QBs... PFT

5 posts in this topic

PFT has a new article up on not overreacting to rookies' performances this weekend. Some rather interesting quotes, and certainly a lot of respect given to our own :cam:...

As a Washington Post story about Griffin’s debut for the Redskins points out, the people who overreact to the start of a quarterback’s rookie season often learn that they were wrong. In 1998, No. 1 overall pick Peyton Manning’s Colts started 0-2 while No. 2 overall pick Ryan Leaf’s Chargers started 2-0, and there were actually people using those two games as some kind of proof that Leaf was the better pick.

Grits/Andy Dalton, anyone???

Of course, every now and then the overreactions are justified. Last year, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton threw for 422 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score in his rookie debut. If any of the rookie quarterbacks on the field put up those kinds of numbers, commence the overreacting.

I love this paragraph at the end. I'm sure this will just be the first of many week one previews with this same sentiment at the end. "If rookie X puts up numbers like Cam Newton did his rookie year, watch out!"

:cam:

    • check any kaepernick thread to see what happens when someone dares cross the line into activism. also don't just assume that nobody here is an activist just because they don't post their personal information and offline activities to indicate such
    • her performance of Creep on that channel was fantastic


    • Those generally aren't set until August or so. No way of really telling the games that will be worth being nationally televised beyond the basic rivalries that are big draws anyway (Pens vs Caps, for example) until after all the roster moves get settled and coverage of practices and preseason games start giving everybody an idea of where teams are talent wise. I expect us to get at least a few NBC games, because our division has too many big draws for us to get completely shut out of national games.
