Potential is a funny thing. Quinn, Russell, Akili, Harrington, Carr are all guys who had potential but for whatever reason flamed out. Now I'm not saying that Luck, RGIII, and Freeman will go that way, but it is still to soon to put them ahead of a guy like Schaub or Flacco that have won games and played more than half a season.
Take Newton as an example he was unstoppable last year. Not so much this year. He carried that team last year, is ordinary this year. Even with loads of talent around him, nothing special.
