its clearly not all hype....
"crowning him" the GOAT is premature. But I'm talking about hype, I can't think of another player that will be as hyped as Winston will be other than Andrew Luck. Like Luck, Winston looks like he could step in and outplay QBs in the NFL right now, which is crazy since he is just a redshirt frosh.
It is pretty incredible how well he has done.
Don't get me wrong. I watched his first game against Pitt. I think he had one incompletion, and broke the PY record for a RS fresh debut.
I just think he is physically superior then most of the competition in the ACC.
He's allowed to play a style of yard ball where his physical presences allows him to create time for his receivers, and eventually coverages break down.
I want to see him play against a secondary that doesn't know how to break down, and a front 7 that can rush and contain him in the pocket.
What happens when his defense can't 3 and out an opponent for half.
What happens when he has to play from behind?
What happens when he has to use his intelligence to win games?
That's why I was in love with Luck as a prospect. I've never seen a college QB understand the position to the degree he does. It's incredible.
I don't know if Winston can do that. Steamrolling weak opponents doesn't count.
Florida has a legit defense. They're offense is awful to the nth degree so FSU will win, but that defense will be an accurate barometer to Winstons ability IMO.
And the bowl game ofcourse.
