The reality though, he is injury prone and brittle. He has been battlefighting a hip and shoulder injury all year which is why his throws have been off. Dude is not built to last, and now he will be even slower and less athletic with a stump foot.
No matter what you believe about his ability, he is on the wrong side of 30 and has missed 5 or more games in 3 out of his 5 years as a starter. Individually they seem like freak injuries, but it is now the rule rather than the exception.
So lets have you and every one else in this forum run a QB Sneak and then when your foot is pressing off the turf and your leg is extended we'll drop a 320 lb. D-Linemen on your foot and see how it holds up. Unless your bones are covered in Adamantium, something tells me your headed for a walking boot.
