I think i can speak for most NFL fans when i say i was impressed with the play of three young quartebacks starting their first big league game. The young bucks Trevor Siemian, Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott and Jimmy Garoppolo each dazzled in their own ways and have started to make me think they each can become franchise quarterbacks. I know it was only one game, but besides for Carson Wentz who was playing walking dogshit yesterday, each quarterback had a tough match up and still managed to produce numbers. No disrespect yet for Wentz though, it takes a lot of confidence and composure to go out during your first NFL game ever and throw 22-37 complete passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns. That is a major upgrade from Sam Bradford who has put up a stat line like Wentz' only twice since 2010. If Wentz continues this level of play, and Dak Prescott takes over for Tony Romo i think the NFC East can lowkey be the most exciting division in the next few years. Speaking of which, Dak made me really nervous at the start of the Giants game yesterday. If it was not for Terrance Williams being a complete jackass that easily could have been a classic Giants loss. Seriously though, if Dak continues the level of play during the next couple of weeks, i would not be surprised if Tony Romo is in another jersey by the beginning of next season. The man is getting up there in age at this point, and his body is more brittle then a fucking toothpick.
Speaking of passing the torch, both Siemian and Jimmy G were able to live up to their predecessors names by catching dubs for the team with some clutch play. Jimmy will be back on the bench by week 5 once Brady can come out and play with the gang again, but he showed a lot of leadership by "taking control of the huddle" according to Julian Edelman and winning his team the game even without their greatest weapon (that guy named Gronk). As for Siemian, this guy has never had a snap in the NFL and it looked like he has been a starter for years already. Most of the credit should go to CJ Anderson and the blistering defense for almost killing Cam Newton, but still Siemian looked composed on the field and was able to throw 18-26 complete passes for 178 yards and a td against one of the best defenses in the league. Each quarterback demonstrated in their own way that they are here to stay, but can they all back up their gems with continued stellar play? I guess we will have to wait and see.
