Compare his stats with Josh Allen and they are almost identical, including spreading the ball to 10 different receivers.

Re: The Sam Howell Thread

Still a lot of room for improvement, but he has been better than most expected so far - me included. I wasn't sure what to expect from him or the offense in general. At least he's not losing us games. I'm not ready to compare him to some of the better QBs in the NFL just yet, but he's trending that way so far.

Iíve seen enough of his traits and demeanor to know he is the one. Watch his college tapes, heís still the same.

I hope you're right but he appears to have that Carson Wentz holding on to the ball trait.

Bad comparison, concrete feet Carson didnít know what to do, Sam will take off and make things happen. Heíll fix it the more he plays.

kind of agree . . .but Wentz was considered pretty mobile for a big guy coming out too. It seems as though guys that can sometimes tend to hold on for a little longer to try to make something happen. Howell needs to learn when to give that up, but it is a fine line between giving up to early and trying to hard and taking the sack and that trying to hard, when you have a mobile QB, is how he makes those incredible off script plays

Howellís biggest assets are his poise, decision making, toughness and quiet fire.

And he knows how to slide , literally if a certain QB that came here in the past could have learned that , might seen a few more years of magic from him

Not really. RG3 couldnít read a defense and didnít understand a pro style offense.

RG3 didnít fail because of injuries, RG3 failed because he wasnít a passer. He couldnít operate an offense from the pocket. RG3 never learned what a route tree in college, thatís the basics he didnít know.

Yeah because he is trying to hard to make something happen, not because he wet himself and is frozen in fear. Itís different. Lol.

He's brand new, his decision making and quickness with it will improve like the rest of his game... in time.

I think you should be come an agent. I love how you are trying to sell quiet fire as an attribute.

There is a lot to like so far in the SSS we have seen. It is definitely the best I have felt about a QB since 2012.

Even if the team isn't getting the respect 2-0 deserves, Sam is. But I can't see how you can rate some of these guys above him. For me he's performed better than Prescott, Burrow at least, if not Goff and Stafford too.
