Pocket passers mainly, sure, BUT -- unlike Schaub, most of these guys can "feel" the rush and get out of the pocket or step up in the pocket to buy a few more seconds to make a play.

To me it's less important whether you are a "scrambling" QB or one that prefers to stay in the pocket. What's most important is the ability to sense the rush coming, move just enough to buy time to make a play, and if the play isn't there.... don't make a terrible decision throwing into coverage or telegraph your decision to the defense.
