And I don't think Fitz is a top-10. I just think he's vastly underrated as a QB and written off for some reason even though he's been successful thus far in that offense. I think he has potential.

EDIT: My bad I read you post wrong so that first part won't make any sense.

I think him having gone to an Ivy League school has more to do with him being written off than anything else. I mean the track record for Ivy League players isn't that great. If he went to USC, and won a national title, he would have gotten much more attention.

I agree that his perception stems from where he's come from and the fact that he wasn't a highly touted guy.

But I still think that there is a clear difference to playing for various teams, and the amount of attention that comes with it. Regardless of position or player.

Enough with the "woe is me" small market complaints.

Who here said he was a top 10 QB besides the said poster who looks like a Buffalo fan? He's not top 10 caliber right now, but I have to agree he is pretty underrated.

Of course there is. But talent always gets noticed. The Carolina Panthers aren't exactly a traditional football power like GB, Dallas, or Pitt but I can guarantee you that if Cam Newton keeps up this level of play, they will be promoted a hell of a lot more than they are now.

Ten years ago, Bledsoe passes the torch to Brady.

Ten years later, Brady passes the torch to Fitzpatrick!!!!

We are witnessing a future GOAT in the making.

T. Brady 30/45 p/a / 386 passing yards / 4TD / 4INT 86.0
R. Fitzpatrick 27/40 p/a / 369 passing yards / 3TD / 2INT 92.6

Fitzpatrick outplayed the golden boy Brady!!!

The Stevie Johnson 3rd Down "catch" near the 50 yard line was definitely a catch (around the 2-min drill).

The Dalton 1st Down run was very questionable (at the 0:45 mark). They measured it and it was short then they went to a review and it was a 1st Down?

So a replay of a 3-yard run was more accurate than a measurement?

The ball touched the ground before the 46, yet they somehow find evidence to move it up to the 46.

Pretty ridiculous.
