Re: Texans Won't Rule Out Drafting QB
I know Tom Landry experimented with changing QBs out every other snap...and it was a HUGE failure.
However, what would be the chances in the near future that an NFL team designs two offenses...one for a pocket passer, and one for a scrambling QB, and then they convince those two guys to split the duties according to whatever team they are facing?
One week, your pocket passer might be the answer to an opposing defense.
The next week, you might pull him in favor of the more mobile QB who can take advantage of perhaps a completely different type of opposing defense.
The payoff would be that teams no longer have to stick with ONE GUY the whole way through, there is a prearranged agreement whereby the whole team buys into the deal. More teamwork than Lone Ranger stuff like we have always seen in the NFL.
The NFL is changing. The rules for QBs, Receivers, and Defenses are begging a team to take advantage of it.
