    2006 QB class has been slow to find NFL success

    [size=14pt]2006 QB class has been slow to find NFL success[/size]

    The only quarterback from the 2006 Draft who's had success in the NFL this season is definitely Jay Cutler.
    Vince Young, Matt Leinart and Tarvaris Jackson have all been benched this season and replaced by "old" veterans such as Kerry Collins (37), Kurt Warner (35), and Gus Frerotte (37). The experts says that most quarterbacks needs two or maybe three years to adapt to the NFL. These guys are in their third year now.

    The article features former NFL quarterback Rich Gannon who resides in Minnesota and at Childress' request has spent the last two offseasons working with Jackson. Gannon talks about college quarterbacks adapting to the NFL, and in addition, assesses the futures of Vince Young, Matt Leinart, and Tarvaris Jackson. Tarvaris Jackson also explains how it was being benched at the beginning of the season and what he has done in the meanwhile.

    Here's a little quote from Gannon on Tarvaris Jackson:
    Tarvaris is a guy that, physically, is very talented. He can make all the throws, he has good athleticism. Two things that jump out at me with him -- one, can he stay healthy? He's been nicked, he has had little things that have kept him out of practice and he has missed some games. And my comments to him were, 'Your most important value to a football team is to be available each and every week. I'm not talking about on Sundays. I'm talking about on Wednesdays for practice.' The other thing I talked about with Tarvaris, much like Vince Young, was that the game has to be able to slow down for him. I think it does slow down when you're not seeing things for the first time, when you're not seeing that coverage that you didn't anticipate, or when you get to the line of scrimmage and it's not the right front. When I watch Peyton Manning and Tom Brady and Brett Favre, they don't waste plays. With these young guys, you see a lot of (wasted plays) because they're not equipped to get out of those situations because there's not enough trust and confidence in their skills and abilities to be able to live in that world.
