Just an interesting topic I thought of. If you were to compare the current up and coming qbs in the nfl to a former or current older qb, who would you say?
Cam Newton = John Elway: He has the magic, he can carry bad teams and make good teams great. Huge arm, keeps plays alive with scrambling, and their playing styles are oh so similar.
Joe Flacco = Jake Delhomme: Both are above average qbs who had good teams around them to lead to success. They have great moments and at the same time, terrible moments. They rely on a huge arm to in a sense, chuck it and pray, and it embodies them as players.
Matthew Stafford = Brett Favre: Both are wild west gunslingers, both can put 5 tds or 5 ints on you on any given sunder. Wild arm, love of the game, and a risk taker.
Andrew Luck = Peyton Manning: This has been made since before the draft, and it should last forever.
Russel Wilson = Steve Young: Leadership, lives off scrambling ability, does not make mistakes, and makes good teams great, and is very precise.
Feel free to add others.
