AJ McCarron wants to play well enough to be compared to Brett Farve


And those are some pretty big shoes to fill. If McCarron can step up and become a Brett Farve caliber quarterback, that would have huge implications for an already outstanding, Bengals football team.

“Cincinnati Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron made mention of Tom Brady following last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers after he replaced Andy Dalton. McCarron was less comparing himself to Brady than nothing other quarterbacks have gone on to have success when replacing starters for long stretches, the New England Patriots in 2001 being the most famous situation. But if he wasn’t comparing himself to Brady, who, if anyone, would McCarron like to be compared to? The first-time starter went with a classic choice: Brett Favre.” – Reported by Kevin Patra
