That is the way I took it. Purely doubts about translation to the NFL with concerns for same possible outcome not a comparison of all the characteristics of their play.

Which gets me to a pet peeve. I hate that so many people think simply putting two names in the same sentence is a comparison of every aspect of the two. If I say Manning's first two years he had INT problems just like Carr (random choice, not an actual assertion) I don't mean anything beyond exactly that one point of comparison. I hate inane responses like "oh sure so Carr is a hall of famer now."
