My buddies and I at work were debating which type of QB will sustain in years to come. It's funny because most men that are 32 and older think the old school passing Qb will sustain (Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Flacco, Manning, etc, and those 32 and younger feel that the new scrambling QB will prevail (RG3, Kaep, Wilson)
Both make great arguments, but I wonder which one will. With injuries, not many scrambling first QB's have won the SB. I mean I keep hearing Steve Young, but i dont think Young was on the same level or speed as Wilson, RG3 or Kaep. I personally feel he was a pocket passer that could run. Instead of a running QB that could pass. (just my opinion now)
I mean I personally think that this new class of Wilson, RG3, Kaep, and a few others will just be a sign of the times, like the Wildcat. Not taking anything away from what they bring to the table. Because the likes of finding an RG3, or Kaep, or Wilson, are far and few between.
I just feel that eventually the league will figure out the read option, just like the wildcat a few years ago, and we'll go right back to the foundation of NFL. And thats with the pocket passing QB.
I will say on NFL network, ESPN, etc. They all talk about this subject and im curious as to what some of you think?
