AngusMcFife Posted January 24 Share Posted January 24 1 hour ago, Yin-Yang said: You’d certainly give a 20 year old rookie QB with only one year of being a starter a little bit more slack than most, I don't think there's ever been a 20 year rookie QB in the modern NFL. Who are you referring to? Weird to bring up an age that no QB has entered the league at. Quote but other than that, no one really cares. A rookie is a rookie. You have a guy for 4-5 years on a rookie deal, you’ve got to develop him and help him out to get acclimated to a new game. Who cares if he’s 24 or 22. Obviously teams care. The older a player, the less upside and growth he has. Chris Weinke would have been drafted much higher if he was 22 after winning the Heisman. Quote Better OL play? He’s gotten league average OL play and it s by far the best of his career. Chase missed 5 games and was capped big time this year by the way defenses were playing them. Higgins and Boyd help, sure. If you think they’re the reason for Burrow’s development, then you just aren’t watching. His weapons are top-3, easily. His O-line had very good players this year who just had a slow start. The backups just steamrolled the Bills for 170 yards on the ground. If you don't think these things impact QB production, there's not much further to discuss. Quote If Higgins and Chase are the excuse for Burrow, does Allen also get dinged for having Diggs and Davis? Are you seriously suggesting that Davis is as good as Higgins? He's not even as good as Boyd. Quote Allen’s development must also be based on Diggs coming to town and the development of the other receivers in the offense. Surely. ??? I don't understand the argument. Obviously Allen's production is enhanced by getting better receivers. My entire argument is based on this point. But Allen's accuracy clearly improved from ages 22 to 24 as well, regardless of his surrounding cast. Which further bolsters my argument.
