That makes for a very weak argument on attempting to compare him to Kaepernick. He's so great of a quarterback prospect, people have suggested turning him into a wide receiver since he was selected in the supplemental draft.

To top off the weak argument, he'll be playing behind the worst offensive line in the league. His chances look fantastic.
They haven't moved him to WR. That's the point. And he's starting. He'll remain the starter. He was amazing at Ohio State. When nobody was talking about Kap they were raving about Pryor. But the fact of the matter is I'm not trying to argue with you. I'm telling you to watch and see. He'll be good. I ate my crow when Smith started like you said. If Pryor is poo I'll gladly do it again. But as of right now, watch and see. At worse Pryor is Vince Young or Cam Newton.

Vince Young sounds much more reasonable and realistic comparison. If he had a decent line, he'd at least be a better version of Tim Tebow.

Vince Young is highly slept on man. Kap inherited one hell of a team and the read option. Vince never got those opportunities to play that style. Lets see what these QB's can do when finally played to their strengths and given a chance to create off those strengths.

Kap and Vince are very similar to me. But Pryor isn't Tebow. He's considerably better. Come on Papz..

It takes smarts in addition to talent to excel at the top level.... Not sure Pryor and Young possess enough gray matter as Warren Moon did.

I would agree, but Vince went back and got his degree. Neither are dumb, but they were quite immature. Vince won plenty of games in this league man. Idk anybody else who could do what he's done on the field and not be a starter.

Young is no where near the passer Kaepernick is. If he were, he wouldn't be running as a back up nor would he have been struggling to find a job. Whether it's arm strength or accuracy, or flat out intelligence, Young is no comparison to Kaepernick. Now if we're talking about running ability, there is some similarities but I believe Kaepernick is more athletic and faster than Young as well.

I do believe Pryor is better than Tebow. With that said, there isn't much evidence to back that up at this point in Pryor's career.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Give it some time Papz. Let my premonitions come to fruition.

I got a better topic. Drew Brees standing short in the pocket.
Passes look like a rocket, just hope that Jimmy don't drop it.
Falcons still flyin' high but we're infiltrating the cockpit.
The dirty birds going down. It ain't no way they can stop it.

Not viable at this junction to give up McCown. Next season this time if Griffin makes some strides.

How smart is the kid how quick will he learn. I think Drew will be a good mentor for him.
