Cam isn't elite. He is a good QB who isnt good enough to mask all other offensive deficiencies.
But there has probably never been an elite QB after just 20 games, 24 years old, and limited major college experience.
since we're on the topic, rodgers also rode the bench for what, three full seasons before he got the start?
brees was hot garbage into his third year too. despite what passes for conventional wisdom a quarterback's development even in the best of circumstances tends to not be perfectly linear.
