Im sick and tired of stop gap measures.
Im sick and tired of glorified pro bowl legend/game managers.
Im sick and tired of the sage rosenfels, dan orlovskys, matt schaubs, tj yates, jake delhommes and case keenums.
Why cant we start planning to get a franchise level qb while Matt Schaub plays out his contract?
Can we also please stop listening to Kubiak when it comes to QBs because its quite obvious he doesnt know what constitutes a great QB base on his history of QB selections.
The NFL is changing. You can now play and win with a rookie quarterback. Not only is the nfl changing, but the qb position is changing. Mobile athletic QBs like RG3,Cam, R Wison are the next step in the evolution of the quarterback position. Even guys like andrew luck who are pocket passers have some semblance of athleticism and speed. Sure there will be pocket passers, but if you are gonna be a pocket passer you better be damn good at it.
We are at a severe disadvantage with Schaub. A pocket passer who is not even that good at being a pocket passer who is devoid of athleticism.
You can win battles with him, but you will never win the war.
A lot of questions, a simple answer: easier said than done. Show me the savior of the franchise who is attainable and who is going to lead us to the Superbowl next year and I'll jump right on the bandwagon with you.
RG3, Cam, and R Wilson, and Luck are all out of the playoffs, just like us. The QBs still in the playoffs? Other than Kaepernick, pocket QBs. Don't get me wrong, some mobility would be nice. Being able to extend the play would be nice. But with the emergence of the flashy, ultra-athletic running QBs, fans are starting to lose sight of what's been PROVEN to win championships.
