    Why Many College "System" QBs Consistently Fail in the NFL

    Because they get drafted by shitty teams with shitty OL. The guys like Carr, Ware, Couch etc all played on shitty teams that were no better without them than they were with them. Houston was average with Carr and without him. Cleveland continued to suck after Couch and Detroit sucked with Ware and continued to suck without him.

    Spread offsense. Sure they can work out of the shotgun, but its under the center that they cannot handle. Everything is different when you are standign right at the line. Foot work for example and vision is the other.

    Because in the NFL, making your offense one dimensional is what the defense WANTS.

    The athletes up here are much better, and you aren't able to exploit their lack of talent like you can in college.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    It all has to do with the speed of the game.
    The quarterbacks in college get too comfortable with their system.
    They find a "glitch" of sorts in college defenses and are able to easily exploit them.
    With the exception of our pass defense, there aren't too many glitches in NFL secondaries.
    The game is so much quicker and so much smarter.


    You can't rely as much on being able to throw the ball as far as you can and knowing that your receiver is going to come down with it, because he's facing a guy who in 2 years, will be doing accounting for a tanning salon...
    You can't rely as much on your receivers to get so open that you don't need to worry about where to hit him.
    NFL is such a quick game and requires so ability.

    It's a game of inches.
    Everyone in the NFL is athletically talented, but its their ability to use your talent efficiently, and their intelligence that sets Tom Brady apart from Joey Harrington.

    I'm curious about our Booty, because he was considered one of, if not the most NFL ready QB in the draft, and so far, he has struggled.
    The difference is going to be, is Booty smart enough for the NFL and can he adapt to the speed.
    Coming from USC, the gives him an edge on the intelligence scale.

    Yeah, I thought you'd like that touch.

    One QB that has actually surprised me (granted it's only pre-season) is Colt Brennan. He has looked somewhat decent when he has played.

    I understand that.
    I'm saying an edge.
    Being from USC doesn't qualify as an instant ticket to the probowl.
    But Carson Palmer is an example of what they CAN produce.
    But they do run an NFL offense, and they do face some of the top echelon defenses.
