Wasn't going to post but wtf, so here are my 2 cents. Comparing a rookie to a goat is absurd! How long have you been watching football? How many QB's have you seen have good/great seasons? How many have continued to have great seasons? Count them out for me.... Your QB had a good year no doubt about it. If you want the torch to be passed, try 3 years before ever even considering it. Win something before ever bringing it up. Try keeping the team together long enough to do something. In the playoffs your QB was exposed. Just like Newton he had a good year. Grats for that, but everything he did was stats not substance. Manning always could do the stats, Super Bowls not so much. So please, lets not anoint the next great one until they actually prove they are great and not just a flash.
