At his best, I don't think he will be better than Steve McNair was. I totally disagree with Mayock's position of Locker and Cam as the best QB's behind Gabbert. Cam will probably play early for a team in the top 5 and be able to make plays with his legs but a QB's number one attribute should be his accuracy and Cam is not accurate. Thats tough for a guy that touches the ball on every play.
I'm with you all the way.
He's a big guy and could be difficult to bring down, kind of like Rothlesbummer, but his QB mechanicals are not there. His throwing is Tebowishly unconvincing. That could be tweaked some but it's not going to change significantly. I'm not a fan of his personality either . . . although if he was lights out, that could be overlooked.
These media guys sometime get into lockstep and are afraid to contradict one another. Maybe there's something special there. But I'm not convinced at all.
