While being a starting WB in the NFL is a very tiny fraternity and being there speaks volumes about how good one is as a college QB; however, of the 32 Teams in the NFL only maybe 4 guys can call be called elite. I'm just sayin'.[/QUOTE]
See? The definition said 'small and exclusive group" You limited it to four- you made it subjective. Why not 5, 8, 13 people?
Basic math man. There are 32 teams
in the NFL. All 32 of those can't be elite. 100%
implies they ALL play at the same level and that's simply not true. Were that the case every game would end in a tie.
of those are elite
we're saying that 50%
of NFL QBs are elite which makes no sense.
out of 32 would be us saying 25%
meet our definition. being in the top 25% is impressive but if there were 100 of us and you're in the top 25...but were #25...there are still 24 cats BETTER than you. That hardly makes you elite.
out of 32 is being very
kind as it is 12.5%
If we wanted to say the top 10% (9.375 to be precise)
of QBs that would be 3 guys
. My point? Not every play caller in the NFL is "elite" and if EVERYONE is elite...NO ONE is.
