You lose all credibility once you mention The Golden Calf of Bristol & Collin Klein. I don't think this thread is about QBs that can't throw. I don't think anyone here brought up any QB that didn't know how to throw. I think you're lost in translation.
Klein will not be drafted as a QB. He was already asked to change his position to TE. Most of the QBs mentioned so far were either high 1st rounders or teams traded down specifically to get them. Heck, The Golden Calf of Bristol was not even fast at all. He was as fast as a lot of pocket passers. The Golden Calf of Bristol ran a 4.71. He wasn't gonna outrun anybody.
Aaron Rodgers isn't a ball of fire on the open field either. He ran a 4.77
The Golden Calf of Bristol's and Collin Klein aren't athletic QBs?
Gee now, why would those two
Now the throw the ball up in the air and let torey & and boldin come down with it Flacco is a great player now because he is in the superbowl. Is that the standard now? So if you're a QB in a team with a great defense that makes the superbowl makes you a great player? The guy was on the brink of not being resigned until the Ravens keep the high power NE offense to 13 points. I hope that applies to everyone and not certain pocket passer type. Because if that's the case Kaepernick should sign his name on the dotted line as being great too. Let me guess, he has too little experience? So players can't be gifted overachiever?
Bottom line is, you only name 2 dual threat QBs in the last 15 years who didn't succeed while every pocket passers in the last 5 years are just busts occupying a roster spot instead of difference makers.
Did you notice that there are a bottom 15 to 20 QBs who has never sniffed or even on the cusp of ever even making the playoffs and they're all pocket passers with pocket passer as their back up with pocket passers as their 3rd string. Those teams are in eternal mediocrity with their QBs. Fitzpatrick, Colb, Lindly, palmer, linart, cassell, locker, gabbert, weeden, stafford(?), bradford(?), etc.
I don't wanna hear anybody complaining about the only 4 dual threat QBs in the league that are all in the hunt for the playoffs. Don't wanna hear it. There are enough colbs, lindlys, cassells, lockers, etc. to worry about. Those guys are only playing because their organization is stuck with them and those dual threat QBs are hard to come by.
Only bothered to name two. There are also guys like Pat White, Vince Young, Eric Crouch, Akili Smith, Terrelle Pryor and others, including yes, The Golden Calf of Bristol.
Problem is that it's pretty clear from the way you argue that you really don't get it at all.
These guys don't fail because they are
dual threat QBs. They fail because they aren't
To be an actual dual threat QB, you have to be good at both running and passing
. These guys were only good at one of the two, and it was the wrong one for a pro quarterback. You can succeed as a pro quarterback without being a good runner. You have zero shot if you aren't a good enough passer.
There's no agenda against dual threat QBs. The whole notion is beyond stupid to even consider. Any team would love
to have a dual threat QB. The actual problem is that true dual threats are fairly rare in the draft pool.
uys like Newton and Kaepernick don't grow on trees. And a lot of college quarterbacks who want to be dual threat QBs just aren't good enough passers to do so. If they were, they'd succeed. And believe me, teams would love it if they could.
Bottom Line: You've created a conspiracy in your mind that doesn't exist in the real world, and it's pretty clear in your posts that you'll ignore actual facts in order to defend the notion. Problem is the notion you have is a silly one. Teams having an agenda against guys that could help them win would be shooting themselves in the foot.
The whole premise is just goofy.
