    As long as it isn't Ponder or Freeman, I'm in.

    3) this QB class is pretty deep this year. Teddy Bridgewater, tajh Boyd, Johnny Football, Murray, AJ McCarron.
    Draft anyone of one of these guys, drop Ponder and have a true QB competition. Something this team hasn't seen in a long time. Let the best man win.

    You're entitled to that opinion but it ain't gonna happen. A QB running around is going to get hurt, only a matter of time. See Vick and RG3. QBs in that system are going to get hit a lot- that's how you defend it. If he's going to get hit a lot he better by a physical speciman like Newton or he's going down.

    I agree with this. They have been trying to incorporate the running QB into the NFL for a few decades and it just isn't going to work with the way they are also elevating their status and protecting them to the degree they are. It can maybe work if they treat the position more like the RB position but that isn't going to happen. So as long as we run the position like it is the running/ passing QB will be a novelty like Tebow while the true, franchise type guys will be pocket passers.

    A mobile QB and a QB running the read/option are two entirely different animals.

    And if you look in my original post, it says mobile QB's. You will not see the Peyton Manning type QB anymore. It is going to be at the very least a Rodgers type. The college game is changing how the pro game is run including at the QB position. If there isn't many drop back passers in the college game, there won't be many in the pro game. It is that simple.

    I wouldn't refer to him as a running QB.

    The guys I am talking about at this juncture are the read option type guys like Tebow, Griffin, Locker, Vick etc who are more likely to pull the ball down and try to make a play with their feet rather than their arm. Rodgers moves around but it is with the intent of buying time for a WR to get open and he will only run if he sees a pretty decent opening but it is certainly his last choice. When they are moving in the pocket they are granted some protections that they lose when they pull the ball down ans run. That is what I was referring to.

    I think should gave Matt Cassel more of a chance than stupid Ponder he's the one who needs to go with the rest of the coaching staff!!!!!!!!!!!
