Is there an agenda behind the anti dual threat, hybrid or read option QBs

67 posts in this topic

I like how fans of their respective teams want all their skill positions to be 'athletic'. They want the fastest RBs, WRs, TEs and espcially CBs but god forbid their QB is 'athletic', all of a sudden they're all up in arm crying about it. Unless, of course, that 'athletic' QB is also 'tall' like Ben Rothlisberger then it's all copacetic.

It was amazing to me how many people believed Luck should have been drafted over RG3 not because of their skills but what the fans are 'used' to. The Colts fan seems to be quite 'used' to watching Reggie Wayne catch all those balls during their yearly journey to the playoffs. And not to mention all the other 'athletic' players they had.

I have no problem with the NFL declaring QBs in some organizations an affirmative position for non-athletic white players. Where certain teams like the Colts, per se must only draft white QBs. Just put it out there. But stop shoving the 'pocket passer' code word in our face like we're stupid. To be honest, that's quite embarrassing.

There is no agenda. Just because you've noticed a lot of fans (out of literally millions ) have stupid or bias remarks doesn't mean there is a unified agenda agianst hybrid Qb's.

i don't think the problem was the frequency of the read option as much as how often cam kept it, how predictable it was, the OL being inadequate, and chud just not paying attention to whats going on. he was a crap playcaller.

Yep. Chud called plays based purely on percentages, not based on situations or how certain defenders were playing (is the DE over pursuing? Will that LB bite on a play-action? Is that CB trying to jam us at the LOS?). I HATED running the read-option on 2nd and 10, and Chud seemed to love it there. It would often result in 3rd and 13-17 which is usually a dead drive.

The only one who has an agenda is the OP.

iirc it was that fat piece of poo rush limbaugh who "played the race card"

the poo mcnabb caught from dipshits who've prob never even been tackled in their lives was entirely unwarranted

who did he catch it from? remember that there were complaints that he was trying to be a pocket passer.

Well dude, whether you call it race card or not, I have nothing invested in this. Because of that I'm impartial. So pointing out those obvious annoyances doesn't mean I am using race to get favoritism. But those people who wants QBs to stay non-athletic or 'in the pocket' obviously wants to maintain the status quo. So they get mad and vilify people who point that out by using the race card accusation to intimidate them.

There is no justifiable reason anyone would want an athlete to be able to throw a football but specifically doesn't want them to be able to run. And you know it. The league has one too many mediocre QBs that can't get out of the their own way. You and I both know Brady was quite ridiculous in that 4th & 4 he coudn't pick up with his leg in the AFC championship game. It was so bad I literally tried to push him to the first down line through my TV. I do also notice that racists do love to use the race card accusation.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
