OK, granted I'm from the bay area, so maybe all the hype and buzz about Colin is a little more prevalent in the golden state, but I'm completely dumbfounded by some of the comparisons I've been hearing.
Radio talk show hosts are already putting him in the category of Steve Young and Joe Montana. TV sport shows (not just locally, but nationally as well) are prematurely saying he's a top 3 QB in this league right now, and will eventually go down as one of the greatest QB's to ever play this game, Yes, ever ....
If my memory serves me right, the dude played half a season, put up decent numbers, and led his team to a Superbowl appearance. Ok, not bad at all, but I didn't know starting 10 games in your career and losing a Superbowl is the new litmus test for determining greatness over an entire NFL career.
I'm not saying he isn't good. I do believe he has the upside and potential to be an upper echelon QB in this league, but I'm just not quite getting all these inane comparisons. What were people saying in Charlotte after Cam's rookie year? What about Jake Delhomme after he took over Rodney Peete and led us to a Superbowl? Were the comparisons similar?
