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!"
