    Omar Jacobs

    I really know very little about Omar Jacobs, and I know a few on this site are really big on him. What's his deal? Everything I've read says he's similar to Pep...big, strong, athletic, mobile with a big arm. If he's similar to Pep, doesn't that mean he doesn't fit the new WC scheme just like Daunte didn't? Can anyone enlighten me?

    He is like Pep, except not as mobile....he's a leader, a play-maker....

    He throws a lot of TDs, but his stats may be inflated by the system that he's in....

    He's definetely a talent....before this season many thought that he and Leinert would be the first two QBs selected at the draft....then Vince Young stepped up....

    i want this guy on our team ASAP..similar game and athletic build to donovan mcnabb..im assuming childress picks this guy to create a monster like he did with donovan..no matter what system he was in, he only threw 4 TDs in that one season while throwing 40 something TDs..in dont care what system you play in, you are amazing if you do that even in a half decent conference

    What seems to set him apart is his accuracy. Excellent completion record despite working with a not so steller bunch of receivers. He also possesses the size needed to run the ball if needed, although he had to do very little of that.
    He doesn't possess blazing fast speed but he is more than adequate in that department running a 4.75 and 4.88 at the combine. He has a akward throwing motion. It almost looks like he is "pushing" the ball reather than throwing it. There is no doubt he needs some coaching but the Vikes have an excellent QB coach now who can turn him into a first class prospect.

    i saw he was at like 68% one year and 67% the next, holy cow!..and the second part i bolded is something that alot of people heard when mcnabb was drafted, and guess who is here that built him..brad childress..

    I haven't seen him play, but I've never heard his name brought up except for on this site. Everything I hear has Whitehurst and Croyle ahead of him.
