McElroy completed 66.3% of his passes over four year to Bollinger's 53.7% and had a much better YPA and TD to INT ratio. Oh, and he won a national championship. And I seem to recall that he has lost only three games as a starter since the 8th grade. Brooks might have had guts but he had nothing like that pedigree.
It's a bit of hyperbole. People think this kid is the next Brady and savior of our franchise. I'm just being more realistic. I don't think he has what it takes, similar to Brooks. Time will tell. I doubt we'll be impressed but I'll take anything that's better than 117 yards passing on less than 50% completions and 4 turnovers.

I mean, the guy had without a doubt the best defense in the nation every year he was a starter, had Trent Rich in his backfield, and Julio Jones on the outside...
