I don't expect a 1st rounder to do shit until their 3rd year. I expect some learning curves. Locker is flashing, Gabbert is not doing shit, and I don't know enough about Ponder. Newton, Luck, RGIII, and Wilson may be the new norm, but I think they're the exception. That said, Newton had some struggles this year. We'll see if RGIII, and Luck have some 2nd year slumps of their own.
