Default Re: Texans Won't Rule Out Drafting QB

Cutler ran right up the LOS before passing the ball, prompting Dobbins to come flying in, in an attempt to stop Cutler from possibly rushing with the ball.

Now take a truly MOBILE QB in that same situation...you lay off that guy, as he's racing to the LOS...and you don't know if he's going to pass or pull the ball down and run with it.

So you have to pretty much give that QB a free play in that situation. You hit him below the knees or in the head, if he indeed throws the ball instead of running with it...and you're tacking on 15 to that play.

Yeah, like I said before: The rules have been changed and it gives an advantage to a QB who can escape the pocket and maneuver near or at the LOS. He can basically freeze a defensive player in his tracks because of the potential for a penalty.
