    I would say this is an underachieved box for this product as far as hits. No Wentz, no Goff, no Elliott, no Henry, and the only Prescott is an insert.

    I remember reading people complaining about only getting some 6th round scrub QB on the Patriots in 2000 and wishing they hit Chad Pennington or Kyle Boller.

    Kyle Boller was 2003.Underachieved is a nice way to describe this product.Higher price point, with less results.Stay away from the hobby boxes and the blaster boxes.
