Scouting Report
Assets: A truly prolific and consummate pro who takes control of the game and is fearless on all his passes. An exceptional touch passer with great timing and accuracy on short throws. A very good pocket presence who moves and slides well. Also a clutch team leader and a winner. Consistently dominant.
Flaws: Undersized for an NFL quarterback, and while nimble he's not a top scrambler. Will sometimes force balls downfield and overthrow his targets. Not getting any younger.
Career Potential: Future Hall-of-Fame quarterback.
