In Topic: When Will Jeter Nut-Hugging End?

25 July 2014 - 03:49 PM

How many years was Jeter even the best hitter on his own team? He was a good to great contact hitter who was generally surrounded by more dangerous hitters most of his career. Don't even start on defense where at his best was average.

In Topic: Have drop back quarterbacks been exposed?

Charlie Weis thinks so:

He believes that having a pure drop back QB put the offense at a disadvantage in playing 11 on 10 ball.


For the most part other college programs have been following suit with Weis' opinion in recruiting dual threat QBs and running the spread. Dual threat QBs are limited to their availability. Since they're limited in numbers, college programs are forced to use pure pocket passers. And, for the last few years the programs that have been making noises as far as national championships and Heisman contentions have been dual threat guys.

And I couldn't agree more. Take Peyton, for example, it takes so many working part for him to succeed. The running game, WRs, OL, all have to be there because he won't pick up that 3rd & 5 for you with his leg. With Cam on the other hand, all 11 man on defense need to be on their toes. So he can survive with a 35 y old receiver, a bad OL, and whatever RB is in the line up. It was only a matter of time before NFL personnel figure this out.

If you watch the super bowl again you'll see that Russel Wilson had the Broncos defense on skate while Peyton was begging for one of his 5 yard pass to go 80.


You realize this past years Heisman and national championship winner wasn't a dual threat right? Winston averaged less than 2.5 yards a carry.

In Topic: Luck already top 5 QB? per ESPN/NFL hack

Are Panther fans the most insecure fans in the NFL? The amount of jealousy and outrage over rankings and lists is really sad. Anything good said about another young qb is immediately met with put downs and comparisons to Cam.

In Topic: Cam ranked smack dab in the middle of QBs according to some league insiders

Like that means something. I'll take the players' words instead. They face those QBs on Sundays, not execs. There is too much at stake as far as the image of the league for the execs. The goal here is to make Luck the image of the league, for whatever reason. But they won't succeed. Talent speak louder than opinion.

 

The 2nd article I quoted points out that the execs actually rank Cam higher than coaches, kind of ruins the argument they are trying to save face for the league.

The writers came back with a vengeance after Cam was voted by his peers as a better QB than Luck.


You do understand these ranking are from nfl execs and coaches, not writers right?
