Veteran Starter w/Big Long Term Deal
No one is arguing a QB needs smarts, a strong work ethic and so on. That's a silly hill to stand on. I don't see anyone denying that LD. That said would anyone confuse Eli, Favre, Flacco or Big Ben as geniuses?
This guys is embarrassing himself though by saying "the guy isn't changing". I really don't understand the point of pretending it hasn't changed. Again every sport it's commonplace and accepted.
“The ultimate point being, looking at consistent organizations and percentages, you win from the pocket, not from extending the play.“
I get you, BGC - but this was his bottom line and this is the point. And of course this point goes beyond QB. They can do only so much.
While great athleticism of QB prospects or “arm strength“ is a nice tool to have it will not be decisive for their future in NFL.
And while QB is the most important position - the QB centric hysteria of NFL is getting silly.
