Re: Why do some great college QBs fail in the NFL?
8 words.. Windows close and the speed of the game.
QBs in the college game can have all of the physical skill blessed upon them, but once they reach the NFL, they aren't throwing through wide open windows.. they're throwing through door peepholes. Which separates the men from the boys. The bust usually falls into two different categories those that are brave enough to do it and can't and then those that won't even try and become check down monsters.. (David Carr)
Then throw in the speed difference between the NCAA and the NFL and how fast those windows close.. then throw millions of dollars on top of that bonfire and you'll understand why only a small few actually are able to succeed on the football field and step through the flames.
