Murk, I think this is a cool conversation. I don't think fans are upset when it's brought up.. but I do think it is stupid to compare a QB that strings together a month of good regular season games to a QB who has won multiple Super Bowls.
When pundits make a few games the standard for potential greatness, remember the cautionary tales of Kaepernick and RG3. They we're both supposed to be Steve Young.

One of my favorite moments of sports media stupidity, was when a bloated & deluded Ron Jaworski predicted Kaepernick was on a trajectory to be the greatest QB of all-time. I love it.. (peace)

I remember Jaws saying that lolololol...

I'm not going that far but I do believe, provided he stays healthy, Watson will be the best of the bunch. And I believe all four of these guys could win a Super Bowl...

I think comparisons more come about as the result of head-to-head competition. Brady-Manning comparisons had some to do with both being very good QBs, but much also was born from the fact that the Patriots and Colts always played one another it seemed, and met three times in the playoffs between the 03 and 06 seasons, including two AFC championships, with either ultimately winning the Super Bowl in all three of those seasons. It was weird, all those years of the Patriots and Baltimore/Indy Colts being in the same division, it was never thought by anyone of being this big rivalry. Of course, some of that stems from neither being good at the same time, except best to my knowledge, the mid-late 70s. Almost the moment the divisions were realigned, it became this big thing.

We'll see if we get some regular big match-ups between teams like KC and Houston and in the post-season, and where the quarterbacks are indeed stars and mainstays. Coaching has become arguably more important than players in this league, and I still think Houston needs to find a coach long term to partner with Watson and maximize his abilities consistently. I know the Texans suddenly are hot, but there is no way in hell I believe that person to be Bill O'Brien.

Of the quarterbacks you named, given the caveat that it is way too soon, I will simply ask which one is setting records? Which one seems to be in the best situation, coaching, offense play makers? In my mind its Mahomes and Goff.
