Vick ran for 1000 yards but got hit a lot. The read option help diminish that through misdirection.
Some people are traditionalist but that's the wrong field for it. Sports cannot and will not stay static. To say you want a 'traditional' QB sends the wrong message. A lot of people are born fast but they so happen to be able to sling a football as well. Where does that leave that guy on a team that only demand 'traditional' QBs? A change of position, maybe?
You probably thinking by traditional Aryan meant pocket passers? Well, all of the dual threat QBs(Cam, Kaep, Wilson, RG3) are also pocket passers. Thus, that's a mute statement. So, 'traditional' in this context does not mean pocket passers.
Regarding the QB making the WR statement: I wouldn't agree with that. I believe the more athletic player on the field carries the least athletic onces. There is a reason some positions are played by very athletic people and others not. WRs have a high failure rate. If QBs were that great at making WRs great there wouldn't be that many failed WRs. Jumping over 2 DBs going after your rib is surely harder than throwing a football in a vicinity where the WR make the adjustment. Irrespective of accuracy. Nobody makes Moss, Calvin, A.J. Green, Julio Jones, Steve Smith, Andre Johnson, etc. Those guys can catch a football even if my girlfriend was throwing them the ball. They make average QBs look great. I don't know a mediocre WR that can't catch who become great because they're playing for a great QB. Catching a football while running 23 mph is an innate ability.
Anyway, I appreciate your opinion.
Dude. Come down off you high horse. Even when you appear to be civil, you come off as pretensious and arrogant.
If you believe that athletic QBs just started arriving in the NFL you are sadly mistaken. Plenty of guys have been able to run and sling it around. From the early days you had Sammy Baugh. From the middle ages you had Fran Tarkenton. From the immediate past you had Steve Young. Those are just a few names of QBs that were dual threats.
Offenses in the NFL have been trying since inception to defeat Deffenses. Wishbones, options, Wildcats, you name it offenses have tried it. Don't try and claim that all of a sudden we have these new revolutionary type QBs.
Try tell Stallworth he would not have made that catch if it were'nt for Bradshaw, or viseverca.
Or that Clark without Montana would not have happened.
Making inane comments does not make you cutting edge. On the contrary...
Normally, I do not respond to these type of posts. But dude, you really do slay me.
