so he runs 4.5 instead of 4.4
cone and shuttle 25% slower
maybe not as smart as qb1.. who isn't a math whiz to start
it's just not a huge drop off, and replacement value isn't hit like the drop back qb's
plus you don't gotta worry about development or injury
just go out there and ball, no matter if you're qb1 or qb3
Yeah, i get what youre saying. I do. I just believe the entire premise is flawed
Running QBs arent "dime a dozen". Probably even harder to find than pocket Qbs.
If that were true we could probably name more than 6 true running Qbs since 2000 (Young, Vick, Rg3, Kap, Allen & LJ). Heck, lets even stick Newton & Wentz in there. Even Quinton Flowers went straight to RB.
Now name all the non-true runnign QBs
One list is decidely larger than the other - which disproves the myth that theyre easy to find or "dime a dozen"
"Not a huge drop off" for the backup? Same thing.
Ive no rpoblem w/anyone sayign a runnign QB is more likely to get injured (They are).
Or that teams should try and prepare for that (They should).
Where we differ (Wildly) is in how easy or common youre suggesting replacements are, and the actual value of that vs he ivnestment cost in the first place.
