    more mobile is the future, as i said guys that can do both. might not always flex it but the ability is there.
    Well put it this way.
    The future is about the passing game. So a QB will succeed if he (or she) can pass the ball well. It obviously will help if he he can run the ball well also.
    But he will not succeed if he can run the ball well (or even great) if he can't pass the ball well.
    The rules favor the passing game. You MUST be able to stretch the field and you can't do that without a serious passing threat.
    Get well soon 80.

    The guys who's speed and mobility matters the most are WR's and RB's. The rules just favor it. It is and will be for the forseeable future, a passing league.
    Great pocket passers will always be able to exploit that in the passing game.

    Okay so you pretty much agreed that hybrid QBs will be a godsend to this league. I really don't see why we must disagree that hybrid QBs are going to be a thing for the league. A QB that can throw and run the ball well is the new fad. Soon we're going to see a league where every team is going to go after the hybrid QBs.

    That's not even close to what I said.

    It's looking like more dual threat QBs are coming out of the college ranks these days than ever before and it will only be a matter of time until half of the teams use one as their starter. The biggest factor will fall onto the HC and how he uses his shiny new toy. RG3's athleticism was overexploited to the point it severely injured him. The way SF utilizes Kaepernick is more appropriate.

    I doubt that very much. Teams are going to take the best available QB.

    The Eli to Cruz td against the skins is a perfect example of why mobile/running qbs arent always the answer. Eli was laid out on that play but still threw the ball and put it right on the money before the pressure got to him. A running qb is going to feel that pressure and try to escape the pocket. Chances are if we had a QB like Cam or RG3, we wouldnt have won that game.

    Eli trips over his own feet and runs like he's in quicksand. Speaking of sliding around, he doesn't even slide well going to the ground.
    Flacco is a bit more mobile and looks much faster out of the pocket than Eli.

    nicely put moke, i think it goes without saying you cant run well and throw poorly. that was never my point that pure rushing qb's are the future. my point was true hybrids

    You're just beating around the bush though, it's pretty evident in your post.

    morehead is almost there, he is on the fence, only a mtter of a few years he will see it.

    he at least is open to the idea. many think we need Frankenstien to stay in the pocket.
