    eerily similar............... Too bad Hoyer isn't a few inches taller. They would be an almost perfect match, sans Bunchen of course!

    There is a HUGE difference between a 62.3% and 55.8% completion percentage.

    I think one of the things McShay kept saying on draft weekend is that Hoyer had 50 dropped balls his senior season. Had even half of those been caught, his numbers would have been a lot better.

    Not saying Hoyer is the second coming of Tom Brady or will ever become anything remotely close to that, but he looked impressive out there, and apparently the coaches thought that as well, because he leap-frogged Gutierrez, O'Connell, and Walter all in one month.

    You also have the new trend on the O-line to ponder with Scar acquiring more 6'2" OC/OG types. :popcorn:

    BTW, something looked fishy to me about Brady's stats--I remember he only played for 2 seasons and somehow he is getting credit for 50+ games??

    So I looked for Brady's college stats and the best I could find is his Wikipedia page which states "The Wolverines won 20 of 25 games when he started". 20-5 sounds more like the Tom Brady I know.

    I'm sure the Hoyer stats are wrong too--I can't believe he had 50+ of them either. What is the point of Peter King quoting them? All these stats say is that Brady and Hoyer played on teams with similar records.

    Anyway, Hoyer played great in the last preseason game and is a fine developmental QB, but I hope to God we never see him on the field this season. Nothing against the guy--it's not an insult to point out that someone isn't as good as Brady, right?

    If Hoyer ends up being a bit better than Matt Cavanaugh
    we'll have done well. there is only 1 Tom Brady for now.
