And I got you calling his 5th season his "sophomore year" so that's something.
Another example of the "sitting and learning" approach paying off is Rivers. He threw 3388 yards 22 TDs 9 INTS 92.0 QB rating his first season starting after sitting behind Brees for his first two seasons. Every player is different, but certainly in those two cases that approach allowed them to avoid the typical doldrums of a rookie starting QB.
