Obviously someone saw something in those 665 attempts for Brady that was not seen in the combined 4665 attempts for the top two all time passing yard leaders.
Papal, there was no comparison made between Brady and Keenum.
I said I brought it up as an example of how a young QB may not be all that in his first few years in the NFL.
Similarly, a young CB like KJax, may not look good when you throw him into the fire right off the bat; but it doesn't mean that he doesn't have the ability to become a good player.
Heck, if you can develop an UDFA like Arian Foster into a good player, your team save a bunch of money for awhile; money that can be put into good use fortifying other positions on the team.
