Being able to move allows a QB to take a little bit longer with their decision making.
The main concern I have with this is; will Kaep be able to speed up his reads as he receives more starts. Or will he always need to hold onto the ball a little longer and spend more time in pre-snap reads.
I can already see issues with Russel Wilson and RGIII that will be more pronounced next year. Some of these issues are also present in Kaep.
That's what I wonder too. It is working now, but when defenses start to adapt, I do not know how well their passing abilities will translate. For as good as Wilson is at scrambling and finding the open receiver, I still do not think he has a very strong arm. There are times when that ball is in the air that I am shocked it doesnt get picked because it just hangs up there. Reminds me of Christian Ponder a little bit.
I guess only time will tell if this starts to take over. Most QBs coming out of college are not in the Brady/Manning mold anymore.
