I was wondering what other QB's through history have put up numbers like Romo in their first year.
So I checked out guys like Kurt Warner, Manning, Brady, Bulger, Carson Palmer, Favre, and some who were not very good.
Since I tend to be conservative about evaluating Romo, I was surprised to find out that I could not find a QB who put up early numbers like Romo and turned out to be a flop - they all turned out great. Maybe early success can predict the future.
Also Romo's early numbers look as good or better than the brief list of great QB's that I looked up. Since many of the greats started earlier in their careers than Romo, I looked at the second years and he still looks good.
There must be some examples of QB's who played lights out and then fizzled. Did I miss something?
