    I dont think he was behind Henson all that much, although I do agree thats how most remember it. He sat behind griese when he was a sophomore, and split his next two years with Henson, but pretty sure Brady was the main guy.

    Clearly critical thinking is an issue here. Is Trask Tom Brady? No. Do you have to be Tom Brady to have a similar skillset? no. Will a Rookie be as polished as Tom Brady? No. did anyone say so? No. What does Tom Brady bring to the table in a skillset? Lack of mobility, Average arm strength, but can make the throws, reads defenses, is smart and knows the playbook. Does Trask have that potential? Yes. Are there things that Tom does because of the amount of experience? yes but in time can someone else learn those same things? yes. So, when I say Trask has similar skillset, I mean he has similar skillset. Does Tom Brady have a learning curve with his new team? yes. We see it every week.

    Strawman.

    No one is saying Trask is a plug and play with Brady.

    No one is say Trask is as good as Brady RIGHT NOW.

    What people are doing is comparing Trask RIGHT NOW to the player Brady was COMING OUT OF COLLEGE. Similar arms, similar smarts, similar mobility, etc.

    No problem with critical thinking here. You just want people to agree with your absurd premise, even your watered-down version.

    You're conceding how different they are, then you circle back and say they have similar skill sets.

    No need to accuse anyone of critical thinking skills simply because they don't agree with you. You can stop being a jerk.

    You're wrong. I am disagreeing with your hyperbole. He is NOT Brady. He shares VERY little with Brady. I do not care how much you water that down. I am never going to agree with you. There are about 13 QBs drafted every year and they all want to be the greatest, but they're not.

    Cope harder

    I’m hoping that’s where he goes. Think he’d be able to take over for Ben in a year or two.

    It will be ironic if our formerly low rated HS QB shines in the NFL. Has a UF QB ever? Not really.

    Rex Grossman played for nine years in the NFL. Tebow, of course. Spurrier, Wuerfel, Driskel, Brissett, Palmer have all played some. Did, they shine? Probably can't say that, but, they all drew an NFL paycheck at the highest level of American football.

    From Wiki "Grossman spent most of his first three NFL seasons with the Chicago Bears sidelined with injuries. He completed his first full NFL season in 2006, leading the Bears to a National Football Conference Championship and a Super Bowl berth."

    Interesante.

    Matthews and Spurrier both drew NFL paychecks for 9-10 years. Even Doug Johnson managed 6 years in the NFL. They weren't superstars, but at least they collected a nice paycheck.

    Are we counting Eric Kresser and Cam Newton since we are taking about Driskell and Brissett?

    If you would like to compare Brady's college stats or draft position compared to Kyle Trask that would be the point. I know you dont want to because youll look foolish. Thats where we are...we ARENT talking about a pro Kyle Trask who hasnt taken his first snap yet. We are talking about a player who in college has a similar skill set and at this point has performed far better than Brady ever did in college. Thats it...period!.

    If anyone is saying Kyle Trask will be the next Kyle Brady in 20 years well theyre insane. No Qb drafted will likely compare to what he became in the pros. He is a unique guy and a one of a kind specimen in sports. Im not sure anyone will ever become comparable to him...but that wasnt the point. Kyle can possibly be groomed under a guy like Brady to maybe one day be a great player...an All Pro.. or if he really develops a hall of famer. Time will tell but at this point coming out of college Kyle looks like the better QB statistically and visually but he has one hell of a long way to be considered half of what Brady is today. Kyle by all accounts has the tools, the focus, the leadership skills and the drive to become great...and quite frankly he just seems like a great kid too....lets all hope he makes Gator nation proud at the next level.
