    That's my point.
    For some posters to say that if a guy can run the ball, he can't win a SB, is silly. They seem to think that running ability is a substitute for the ability to throw the ball. Well Kaepernick proved that he can do both. And Wilson has as well.
    These guys are scary to defend.
    As I said before, the only think that kept SF from being the champs was Kaepernick's inexperience, because the kid can flat play.

    Mobile QB's, even running QB's can win in this league. All this means is that both can be successful.
    If NFL GM's need a "SB win" to identify legitimate trends (like you suggest) the league would be stuck in a world of "3 yards and a cloud of dust".
    If the standard in the NFL is to win a SB then how is that ridiculous? Maybe Seattle wants to use Wilson more in the pocket like they already showed us. He didn't run nearly as much as Kaep. or Rg3 and was still very successful.

    Newton might have the best chance of success.

    I agree Flacco didn't demonstrate his wheels much but he certainly has them. what he did do a lot was buy loads of extra time to get guys open.

    Now lets say Kap had a Giants defense that could hold a team under 21 points , you tell me he doesn't win???

    i agree with morehead that Kap was a young rookie and his first SB you get a bit nervous but still was good.

    why wouldnt I consider them hybrids??? they have designed running plays also. when you guys talk about "running qb's" it makes it seem they can't pass . i am telling you the wave of the future QB's can do both, and that is hard to defend.

    we can't get stuck in a stone aged old fashion one way to skin a cat thinking process.
    I fail to see how Flacco and RG3 are even remotely similar

    Flacco isn't a statue, but he's not a runner either..

    fans forget Flacco can run also (not as fast as RG3 but still mobile)

A mobile QB usually scramble at the first sign of the pocket collapsing. Not something you always want in a QB.
    That's an interesting point, never thought of that really
