Vinny, the difference is that Elway was an accomplished passer in college who didn't really show the stuff he already had in the NFL until later.

In his four seasons (19791982) at Stanford, he completed 774 passes for 9,349 yards and 77 touchdowns. Stanford had a 20-23 record during his tenure. His 24 touchdown passes in 1982 led the nation, and he graduated with nearly every Stanford and Pacific-10 career record for passing and total offense.
