Texas freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers is generating a lot of buzz in the fanbase this spring. He looks so good that one person has an extremely bold - and viral - statement about him.

During today's edition of The Paul Finebaum Show, one caller said they didn't want to "get too ahead" themselves but had a bold comparison. They said Ewers looked like a combination of Dan Marino and John Elway.

"I don't want to get too ahead of myself but I saw Quinn Ewers in the Spring Game and he looked like a combination of Dan Marino and John Elway..." the caller said.

If there's a combination of two statements that make you want to laugh, it's that one. The irony of that statement has some college football fans rolling:

"No, definitely not getting ahead of things," wrote Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times, perhaps with some irony.

"'I don't want to get ahead of myself' *proceeds to get ahead of themselves,*" one fan wrote.

It probably doesn't need reminding that Dan Marino and John Elway are two of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time. Marino is considered to have one of the greatest arms in NFL history, while Elway is one of the greatest athletes to ever play quarterback.

If that's not getting ahead of oneself, what is?

How good of a quarterback will Quinn Ewers actually be at Texas?
