    NFL.com Readers Poll

    Who do you think was the most mobile quarterback in NFL history?
    Michael Vick - 47%
    Exactly how mobile is he now in a 8 ft x 12 ft cell?

    Jim Zorn was much more mobile than Marino, I think the results are just due to people not knowing who Zorn is.

    What the heck is Marino doing being listed on any of these list? Fran is still the man.

    Re: NFL.com Top 10 Rushing QBs

    The tittle should not say "Top 10 Rushing QBs" but instead it should say "Top 10 mobile QBs " or "Top 10 scrambling QBs". Cause when I think of rushing, I think of gaining yards, but this list also includes QBs that can move around in the pocket or break to the outside to avoide the tacklers and buy some time. If it was a list of players that could gain the most yards, then Michael Vick should without doupt be #1, but it's not. Fran Tarkenton deserves to be # 1 cause he could run back 30 yards, then end up gaining 40. Most QBs would only have like 3 seconds to get rid of the ball, but Tarkenton could get 10 seconds just by running around.

    Btw, Marino is slow as hell, but he knew how to avoid tacklers by perfectly timing when to step sideways as the defender would try to takle. I think that's why he made the list, however, personally, I would not put him on the list.
