We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

and he could wind up being really special on the NFL level. He's not just another Greg McElroy, he's got a legitimate next level NFL arm and the size to go with that. Yes he's surrounded by a boat-load of talent, but so were Matt Leinart and Carson Palmer at USC. Leinart didn't have the arm to throw the ball in the NFL, and Palmer has had a pretty decent NFL career, and at one point he was looking like one of the elite young QB's in the entire game. McCaron compares well in terms of skillset and size to Matt Ryan IMO. Nothing special physically about either one, just very good at what they do and have more than enough arm and good size for the NFL.
So is he the Tom Brady or Matt Ryan of the college game?
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
Tom Brady of the college game in that all he does is win, compares to Matt Ryan in terms of skillset, size, arm strength at the next level.
USC fan. You don't get to talk about QB's.
And still no.
Good thing Texas A&M doesn't have an NFL team.
you don't get to talk about QB's either. Ohio State hasn't had a legitimate NFL QB since inmate #19490 Art Schlichter.
You know nothing Jon Snow.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
payroll exceeds the NFL salary cap at A&M. $EC house rules.
Came for YKNJS reference. Left satisfied.
don't know about first QB drafted, but he just might be the most sure thing in terms of getting a productive NFL QB in his draft.
AJ is no Matt Ryan, but he could be a good player in the league if he goes to the right team.
Without self-knowledge there is no individuality
God damn it!
If Alabama had Matt Ryan, they'd be talking fivepeat right now.
Already talking it.
He's not gonna be Tom Brady in the NFL but he does remind me of a College Tom. Both on very good teams with a great coaches and are winners.
I've always thought McCarron was underrated. Can't believe ha doesn't get more press/hype. Sure he's surrounded by lots of talent, but most winning qb's are. All he's done is win. Should have won the Heisman last year IMO.
He reminds me of a college John David Booty minus the batted down passes. Knows how to get the ball in his playmakers hands and not make mistakes.
Tom Brady marries supermodels and gets GQ covers
AJ dates pageant girls and has a chest tattoo
Hardly a comparison, IMO
If that were the case AJ would be splitting time and coming off the bench. Pretty sure that's how Tom Brady was used at Michigan.
If McCarron goes to a team like the Steelers or Texans he can win some championships. If he goes to Arizona or Cleveland he is screwed.
