Since he was a rookie last season it should be fair to put his numbers up against some of the greats and see how he did. About on average with the greats …. so again I question even bringing it up.
First I mentioned Dilfer to counter VY getting props for winning eight games. The Ravens won the superbowl not Dilfer, the Titans won eight, not VY.
If you would like to compare rookie seasons then I think it would be fair to compare Leinart to Young.
Leinart started one less game than VY and had more production on just as horrible of a team as the Titans.
The handy cap that Leinart has -vs- VY is Dennis Green -vs- Jeff Fisher.
