Fair enough! We'll see what happens down the road.
As far as QB evaluation, I don't know if we can count on one or two special traits.
I remember Greg Cosell gushing over Jamarcus Russell about "the big arm", "intuition", "can make every throw"... "From any platform".
Well, I disagreed with Cosell on 2 and 4.
Cosell thought very highly of Jamarcus, when I thought Russell was way-overhyped (even by some QB coaches, scouts, and GMs; even Al Davis.)
Or I strongly disagreed with Cosell's comparison of Russell Wilson to Seneca Wallace. (Cosell eventually changed his tune on Wilson, starting after the PS games.
So like I said, I like Cosell, but I didn't agree with him here and there.
I think he was quite high on VY, too???
Obviously, nobody is going to hit on every prospect that they study/scout.
I try not to overwhelm myself, and perhaps because of that, I've been quite consistent (never too far off my evaluation.)
I think I will continue my post later on for fear of losing this one for any reason (Internet connection for example.)
It's always good to talk football with you.
