Re: Pasquarelli: Without Vick, the Running QB Revolution Stalls
Excuse me...Did I just read that without Vick, Ben would be nothing? Or at least a comparison? Are you kidding me? Ron Mexico is not in Ben's league.
And it also seems that Len forgot a certain Running QB named Kordell Stewart. He as well as Vick and Young all have eerie similarities. Great exciting runner, but have the QB mechanics of a rock and can't throw the ball to save his life. To be a QB in the NFL. You have to throw the ball. That sandlot stuff you did in College won't work. If Vince Young doesn't get his crap in check, It's very likely he'll be doomed to the same fate as Vick and Stewart.
Ben is a mobile QB, not a Running QB. Ben only runs around when that inconsistent seive of an O-Line in front of him breaks down in pass protection. He is a playmaker whose ability to keep plays alive is unmatched by no one else in this league, but also has the prescence and skill to throw the ball in the pocket. Len Potbelly really dropped the ball on this article.
