When you start getting young talent compared to you, it means you're doing something right. How many times have we heard comparisons to great players and they don't pan out...a lot! We're starting to hear several comparisons to Ben...just means these guys play a similar style as a great player. Doesn't mean they are going to live up to they hype...most never do.

go 15-1 your rookie year, win a Super Bowl your second year, get to two more and win another in the following 5 years and then...then get back to me about being called the "black roethlisberger"

Cam can't hit a 20 yard out route...he's the next Jamarcus Russell as far as I'm concerned.

He can think anything he wants but he has to prove himself but I would never wish anyone to fail. Why would you want to wish that on a someone?
