Man, are they exciting to watch. We got RGIII, this kid on the Seahawks, Copernicus on the Niners. They really make for exciting play. But lets face it, a blow to the head here, the slap on the knee there, and the next thing you know, mediocrity. Randall Cunningham. Slash with Blitzburgh. Vick. I am sure I am forgetting quite a few. I have been watching the sports shows for a few days and they are saying this is the new NFL, the new way of the QB. Just seems to me these guys have the lifespan of a firefly. Steve Young may be one of the few fast and mobile QB's who went all the way, but he had a pile of concussions along the way. Now how about those pocket passers? The Mannings, Brady. Quite a few rings between them all.and they are all fairly slow. I think Eli may have a little zip but not to be considered a "dual threat" QB. These guys are going to have longevity though, I still think a QB that has the ability to make a quick decision, surrounded by about 1500 pounds of meat, is going to have a much longer career, and a on average a more productive season, than the guys who cut and run. No matter how fast and strong these young QBs seem to be, the guys hitting them on average are a whole lot stronger. Not saying that Rusty or Copernicus or RGIII wont get a ring, but long after these guys are no longer significant guys like Andrew Luck will still be around and doing fine.
