Yeah, what does anybody see in him?

One clip doesn't change my mind, and I'm not criticizing anyone who thinks he is a star - it's a fair assessment. However, there have been more 5 star busts than success stories, so I remain skeptical. His film is not that great. He has the resources and the pedigree, and I wish him all the best.

Skepticism because busts happen? Obviously

I really don't understand what this post is about, but I'll play.

IMO, Arch does not show that great on film. The competition seems inferior and he does not scream "superstar" to me. None the less, I wish him all the luck in the world, even though I don't know him, and I hope he has a stellar career but struggles every time he plays the Vols.
It's a very silly thread.
1) Because we have a better QB committed to us.

2) He was never considering Tennessee.

He's a player that will ger better and better.
Peyton was obsessed with film and learning ever little detail.

People think he would be a great OC...
He would be a better Defensive Coordinator.
If Arch has that type of passion, he'll lead Texas to great things...

And he still won't be Nico.

I believe he is a quality QB who will do well at Texas. His talent would have been wasted at Georgia and he will be a much better player at Texas.

No Manning has ever won the Heisman. Archie in college, had a career 52% completion, 31 TDs to 40 INTs. In the NFL he was a 55% completion guy who threw 125 TDs to 173 INTs.

Eli was good. His 2003 year was good. Eli didn’t have a stellar career. He had a decent NFL career. He never led the NFL in any significant passing categories. Well he did lead the NFL in INTs 3 times. In 16 seasons he never made 1 first team all-pro. Only went to the prow bowl 4 times. Yes he won 2 Super Bowls. But did you watch them? If you did then you would have realized his defenses kept the Pats at bay.

So sorry the stats say that neither Archie nor Eli were very good in college or the NFL.
Eli was very good in college and his stats back that up. In fact, Elis stats weren't far off from Peytons. Over 10k passing yards and 81TDs while finishing 3rd in the Heisman voting in 03. You dont have them kind of career stats by not being very good.
