Note to 9ers.. : Most NFL lineman are taller than just about every NFL QB. None of those big and TALL linemen are transparent. ALL NFL QBs must find throwing lanes in which to operate.
Of course they are.
Its not just about vision its about release point. Also...you make ist sound like O-Linemen are standing straight up on every play. If they were standing straight up then they'd be getting pushed back into the QB.
Most short QBs fail. Thats a fact. Some have succeeded because they've been able to work around that disadvantage (Flutie to some extent, Brees to great extent) but the only people now who argue that height isn't a factor are fans of the team that has the short QB. If Wilson was 6'5" and Kaep was 5'11", you'd be making the same argument.
