    Ryan Mallett plans “payback” after Dolphins pass on him | ProFootballTalk

    Ryan Mallett says he's just like Tom Brady - NFL- nbcsports.msnbc.com

    I like the kids enthusiasm but seriously,you can't jump out and compare yourself in any which way to one of the greatest QBs of all time when you haven't thrown a pass in a regular season game yet,whether that is a complimentary statement or not.

    As the other link shows,he is now doing the 'disrespect' card of Miami passing on him and wants revenge....sound familiar like Brady and the long wait in 2000

    I truly think the aura of playing on the same team as Brady has gotten in this kids brain, he needs to realize that unless another Pollard type hit lands on Brady,he may have a LONG wait until he can show anything.

    Do you like the enthusiasm or is it a little premature and out of bounds?

    As far as the "just like Brady" comments go, I'd tend to agree with Mallett: physically, their style of play (e.g., not looking to run very often/at all) is very similar. The rest of it, we'll see.

    In general, backup QB is one of the few places where I think fire is appropriate; a young backup QB who's content to just be a backup QB probably shouldn't be.

    He sounds a bit foolish....but, I'll give him a pass right now because he hasn't yet spent any time in the Pats locker room/ meetings etc where he'll be getting that "Vulcan Mind Meld"

    Yeah,the footwork and motion could be the same but that means nothing once you are in 'game mode' and defenders are reading your every eye movement.....Thats where Tom Brady and Peyton Manning seperate themselves from the other 30 QBs.

    Guys like Brady and Manning come around once every 15 or 20 years...If Mallett is one of those guys it will probably not show until he is 27 years old or is traded to another team in 3 years.

    If Aaron Rodgers stays healthy, he'll be a HOF, even with a late start.... he is the real deal. If Julio Jones works out in Atlanta, Matt Ryan has an outside shot. Drew Brees will probably be a HOFer, but I don't think he'll ever reach the lvl or a Brady or Manning.

    Thats what I am saying...Brady and Manning are on a level above anyone on the past 15 years or so

    There are alot of PROMISING QBs like Rodgers and Brees and maybe Ryan but they have a LONG ways to even sniff the careers of #12 and #18

    No one hates Mallett (well,maybe not most of us)

    But he really should shows us something in TC first before getting on the revenge train.

    There will be no revenge for the Dolphins if Mallett is another Bishop or Robinson

    After reading countless scouting reports on the young man, all I can say it hopefully he is attempting to show us he has a sense of humor. Among Patriot QB's, Drew Bledsoe would be his closest comparison. Perhaps rather than grooming a replacement for Tom, Bill decided to take a flyer in a draft he saw less value/depth potential in than most on the theory he could have won with Bledsoe had he been the HC to draft him...

    I'll admit I didn't read the links but if it's actually as you summarized I'll predict he needs to stfu or he'll gtfo pretty quick.

    All he said is their styles are the same. This is why athletes can't say anything because someone out there will make a headline completely misquoting what they said. If Mallett said he was as good as Brady then there would be an issue.

    He needs to keep his mouth shut, I want BB to trade him sooner rather than later, hopefully to AZ so that we can get Fitzgerald.

    How does he plan to pay back the Dolphins from his seat on the bench?

    He sounds like he's expecting to play soon by that payback comment. He shouldn't hold his expectations too high....could cause trouble for him.

    I think he saw the show with Brady crying about getting disrespected and thinks he was as well.

    Being picked in round 6 and being picked in round 3 are not the same....besides Brady wasn't dropped below guys like Rattay or Carmazzi because he did drugs

    If Mallett kept away from illegal things while in college he would have gone before Gabbert did,I have no doubts....its HIS fault the Dolphins passed on him,they didn't want to take a chance.
