The teams that did their homework over the past five years have found that good quarterbacks, no matter what system they ran in college, can succeed in the NFL

This is all that really needs to be said.

Anyone saying something else is arguing a point of revisionism or denial.

Peyton Manning is a running threat? Just because he may have 3 WR's I don't think that would truly be considered a spread offense in the sense that the college systems are running. Manning is as prototypical as they get as far as a true pocket passer is concerned.
this is a bunch of fluff to make people more comfortable in the drafting of Cam Newton. period.

Prediction: Cam Newton = Vince Young. Tremendous athletic ability and college talent that will just never find his stride in the NFL. Take it to the bank.

No, Peyton is not a running threat. Neither, to a large extent, is Gabbert.

That doesn't mean they aren't in the shotgun a lot with 4 receiver threats.

So my original point stands.
