AM will be the next QB after AJ. I am not worried in the least about his talent, mind or leadership ability. Anyone who thinks CB will start over him is mistaken. His arm is AMAZING and he is a proto-type of what NFL GM's look for. With another year under AJ he will be primed to drive this dynasty for a couple of years. Write it down.
Good morning, Mr. Morris.
Uhhhhh, no. See your new. Welcome.

Think we know more this spring based on reps in the confidence level of the staff. CB is a better athlete IMO but that doesn't always translate into a better QB.
Many have expected this to happen and held their breath last season for fear that AJ would get hurt and Morris would have to give up his red shirt. With that now being moot, it wouldn't surprise me if PE didn't look to transfer after spring practice has ended, as most see AM will win out the role as the back up QB.
"You don't always get what you want, but you always get what you deserve"
that seems to be somewhat changing in what nfl GMs look for. may not continue but at least currently it is trending toward mobile QBs
Exactly---just look at that arm and the measurables. It's just like when I told you guys that Star would easily beat out the nerdy white kid with the freckles and a below avg arm....oh wait. (g)
Exactly right... big, mobile qb's are about to be the new NFL fad. Every team will soon be looking for one.

Agree. After the Polian rule and the new crackdown on physical play in the secondary, you can hide QBs who may not have been NFL caliber with more athleticism. Basically, they don't have to be as accurate or have the arm strength now that used to be required.
I'm not saying RGIII, Russell Wilson, Cam, etc aren't athletic, accurate, and have big arms. I'm just saying that it was highly irregular to find "mobile" QBs who could also bring the same skills to the table as more traditional QBs. Now, those skills aren't needed as much, IMO, so you're able to mask deficiencies a bit more.
Exactly...& look no further than Kaeprnick at SF. That guy looks like he's never touched weights in his life. Very skinny for an NFL qb.
Meh, I think this statement is an over reaction to RG3. Give RG3 3-4 more years @ 2-3 concussions per year and see how the decision to draft him turns out.
Well if it was just RG3 you might have a point. But he's not the only one.
Also look at the next wave of college qb's. Manziel, Lynch, Bridgewater, etc. all fit this mold as well.
I get what you're saying but these running QB's are not a long term franchise solution (like Brees, Favre, Manning, Brady, or Rodgers). I know these type QB's are rare and teams have to take what they can get, but don't think a Manning/Brady type QB will ever be selected after a Mike Vick/Colin Kapernick/RG3 type QB. See last year's draft with Andrew Luck.
i think the lethal pro style QBs will always have their place (brady, etc) but dual threats are no longe frowned upon basically thanks to cam, rgiii, wilson and kaepernick
NFL really isn't about the long term any longer. Just look how many teams are firing coaches each year. It's becoming a win now league my friend.
Really? Kaepernick is huge.
Look I'm 37 & very old school. But if you look at the overall landscape of football at all levels right now. It's quickly trending towards more wide open offensive football. Not saying the pro style is dying. But we are seeing less & less of it these days. Even pro style drop back passers. Can now run certain spread/no huddle systems. So there will always be a place for any qb with a great skill set imho.
