I saw the rookie starter note, not that I thought QC should have played a down as a rookie.
They were all starters for at least 3 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. That list has to be fairly small in and of itself.
Staubach and Aikman both improved with time. Aikman really took off in year 4 after being much improved in year 3. If QC can become the type of system QB Aikman was he has to show he can grasp all the nuances of a system. Hard to say he can or cant given he hasnt played in an offense for more than 1 year until now.
Troy was more than a system QB. There are many throws that Troy could pull off that Carter can't, such as a 20 yard out on a frozen rope with great accuracy. Time after time Troy would hit Irvin in the numbers on that rout. In games where Dallas was forced to pass a lot more such as the NFC Championship games aginst GB Troy matched Favre through out the day. To claim Troy was nothing more than a system QB is far from reality
