Russ is a great QB.
Has been healthy...has started 125 of the 125 games played since he was a rook, including playoffs. Has averaged 3,660 passing yards per season in a HEAVY run first offense, with a career 64 % completion percentage with 196 TD's with 63 INT's.
If you asked all 32 GM's right now which QB they would prefer, Cam or Russ.....I bet over 27 would say Russ.
To say that he is overrated is just flat out homer talk.
You would think Gano had the resume of Adam Vinatieri or something with the sentimentality displayed over the possibility of another kicker outperforming him. Did the Patriots sit around like a bunch of sad Michael Jordan memes when the time came to move on from Vinatieri? Last I checked they calmly drafted Gostkowski in the 4th round and then they went on to win 3 more Super Bowls.
