    Way too early to assess. They should wait 3 years before comparing. Let's not forget how awesome we thought VY was his first year. But I do think MM8 is a legit franchise QB.

    Gahhh this video makes me sick. Whats worse is that he could have took off for big gains on several of these plays. Especially the first two. He's got a long ways to go but at least he's making the right reads.

    That's not the key to longevity. I prefer him to make his reads, do what he can and only run when absolutely necessary. Or, when by design.

    How many of those deep balls was he worried about taking big shots on... MM8 got smacked around a lot last year, the longer you hold the ball the more likely you are to get hit.

    Still hoping some of the downfield throwing issues had to do with being rookie QB still getting comfortable with various WR/TE speed & size.

    At least MM seems to mostly overthrow the wideouts on deep balls. Under throwing a lot of those incompletions is a recipe for INTs.
