I'm not really flattered by Jaws' comments -- instead, they come off as blatant hyperbole. I mean, I love Kaep -- I really, really love him. But to say he has the highest potential of any QB in the history of the league is just silly. I mean, like another posted mentioned, you'd have to say the same thing about Wilson, RG3, Newton, etc...
Kaep was superb last year. However, he also had an absurdly talented team around him. Let's just hope he can sustain success through next season, and then start making projections from there.
Kaep is way more gifted than those QBs imho. He will most.likely.improve which is the scary part.
I don't think its silly to say he has the most "potential" of any quarterback in the history of the game.
Who has / had more TANGIBLES than Kap in the history of the game?
I can only think of a few who come close. Maybe RGIII, Vick, come close, but Kaep has height on both of them, and nobody has a better arm, which is saying a lot. Kap was recruited by Harvard, which is not something many NFL quarterbacks can say; so he also has the intelligence, which counts as a "tangible".
Of course, "intangibles" are also a part of it. Joe Montana, Tom Brady, obviously had it. Other players like Shaun Hill survive in the league on intangibles alone. Hill can barely throw a ball 20 yrds, but we all know he has that "it" factor; the intangibles.
Kap is oozing with tangibles, over time, we'll see how many "intangibles" he has.
