Can’t think of a single NFL QB past or present as a suitable comparison. Best I can come up with after reading this board and Twitter is Jesus Christ circa 31AD

A perfect combination of all the bestest QBs ever. 

Where’s the Geno comparison? Or are we strictly comparing him to all time greats only?

A see him as a better and more accurate Josh Allen, not that strong of a arm but both big guys that can run. Some are saying that TL can't throw deep but if you actually watch film you'll see the amount of his deep passes that were dropped by his WRs.

Nice observation... I agree

The guy he reminds me of because of his arm strength and his total belief that he can make any throw at any time in the game is Dan Marino.

I don't think he compares to Marino with both taken as a whole, but TL does have a few Marino qualities. Economical and effective use of minimum ideal motion to navigate the pocket.  Same with Tom Brady.  Always the right step in the right direction when operating in the pocket.  Also... Like Marino, TL has a very fast delivery.  TL has long legs and arms, but he is not ungainly. There is no wasted motion when he throws.  Nice and compact.

Joe Montana.   Where do I pick up my prize.

Montana ?  Hmmm.  Not too similar.  Montana was limited physically but was masterful at playing the QB position from the neck up.  Both football IQ and unshakable confidence.  Joe Cool.  You also have to factor in Walsh with Montana.  Just like Belichick with Brady...

And Manning with GASE... HAAAAAAA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But that’s what I see in Trevor. Montana’s style of making it all look so easy.

i just want him to be trevor lawrence.  the only two qb's who i think were very similar to past stars were manning/Johnny Unitas and marino/namath.  manning and unitas both had that long throwing style.  i suspect there's a reason why manning wore 19.  same thing with the marino/namath comparison.  they both had that quick and compact throwing motion.

Montana was basically a way way better version of Chad that was also durable

Lawrence way more mobile than Marino

Very true.  Marino can not scramble like Trevor Lawrence can, but Marino was ideal at navigating the pocket.  That calls for pocket awareness and understanding of when and where to take that all important single step up, back or to the side.   Brady is the same way.

Justin Herbert.  He's literally a clone of Justin Herbert.  Same size build, speed, arm strength, etc.  Lawrence just has nicer features and epic hair.  If they had screw on heads, you could put them on either neck and it's the same dude.

Perfect comparison.  I would love to have a durable Chad.

When Chad first played in preseason as a rookie he really reminded me of Montana

 

and then the rest of his career happened

The knock on Lawrence is that his runs in college are usually him tucking the ball and just going for it.  My reply is who the hell cares

Also as you see him in the pocket making an omelet and pancakes before throwing .

And he'll learn to slide in the NFL. 

Depends on who's in front of him. He'll probably grow into about 230Lbs at 6-6" & very muscular & strong. 5-9" 190 Lb CB is like a shrimp to a guy that big.

My god sir you have won the forum for the day you are free to spend your days and night drinking Meade and eating plentiful.

Remember when that comedian made fun of Elways horse teeth? I think it was the 1st Espys (early Espys)

Even I felt sorry for him, it was funny but uncalled for & he was definitely not laughing!

Take Josh Allen’s arm, Drew Brees’ accuracy, Tom Brady’s awareness, Kyler Murray’s athleticism, and then combine that person while giving him Scarlette Johansson’s hair... and you get Trevor Lawrence.

When he comes off the field does he ride the menstrual cycle or simply a stationary bike 😁
