Ain't no fun speaking from hindsight. LOL.
What if we change name from Aikman to Russell the Giant.
Didn't he have a great arm and great measurables.
You're picking and choose stories to make your point.
Yes, a big arm is good.
Good measurables is an asset.
They don't necessarily make a good or great QB.
Sure, a QB may get a longer look due to measurables; doesn't mean it's the try and true formula.
