    Blasphemy!We all know you can't judge a QB unless he has 10 HOFs' at his disposal

    Wilson and RG3 both look like franchise QBs regardless of their running ability. That's just a added skill in their arsenal. Tannehill has the same ability.

    Not sure teams really stopped Newton this year. He still put up big numbers. There's a new era of QBs in the NFL. I doubt the read-option style offense is going anywhere. If you have a Qb with the skills that these guys have and then you add in their ability to run, it causes fits for opposing defenses.

    You draft a QB regardless. If Tannehill gets hurt we roll with who? Pat Devlin?

    And. That's just one exception.

    Can't use him for every running qb that comes in.

    didnt use him as the exception and the difference with both Wilson and Griffin they are still pass first guys. Good quarterbacks that can run not qb's that are only successful because they run. The best year Vick ever had was the one where he actually looked to pass first. The Nfl has just never seen a guy who can do both as good as RG3 , unfortunately thats not good for his health.

    I hate even POSTING on a thread like this because it gets bumped up when it deserves to be deep-sixed.
    Lol at you using Andy Reid's name and not win anything of substance. When was the last time the Fins been to the Superbowl? Playoffs? Rebuilding? The Eagles are in year 1 of rebuilding and we have been rebuilding for over a decade. Philly might be a trainwreck now, but the Dolphins have been a loose caboose for years now. Stop trying to predict what other franchises who look like they are on the way up (Seattle) will do and thinking that the Fins will just magically get better.

    correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Tannehill beat Wilson when they met head to head. And based on your logic, all but 12 teams should draft a QB in the upcoming draft.

    You seriously don't have a clue as to what you are talking about here. My guess is you probably haven't even watched him play. Do you actually think Green Bay was surprised by Kaepernick's abilities yesterday? Kaepernick ran the pistol for 4 years under the tutelage of Chris Ault in college who invented it which employed the read-option. Between that film and what he has done in SF teams have plenty of film on him. All the Packers had to do was watch the 80 yard TD Kaepernick ran this preseason that looked identical to his TD last night other than the yardage. They knew what was coming. They just couldn't stop it.

    If you had a clue you would also see that Kaepernick has one of the best arms in the NFL. The Cubs drafted him as a pitcher after being clocked at 93mph. He could be a top 5 QB as a pocket passer. Besides arm strength he has pin-point accuracy. He is elusive in the pocket and is already the best QB in the world at throwing on the run. The running makes him that much more dangerous which he has been timed at 4.43. But the most impressive thing is his leadership, intelligence and poise. Hell, as a freshman he almost single-handed put up 67 points against Boise St.

    Go back and watch 3 passes last night. One is the 44 yard pass to Vernon Davis and watch the location of the football as it dropped in over Vernon's shoulder. The other two are the TD passes to Crabtree. The way he leads his WRs with pin-point accuracy is unbelievable. Crabtree didn't not have to shift his momentum one inch in order to catch those passes. I challenge you to go back and find three passes "all year" that Tannehill threw better.

    Once film cycles they'll figure out how to stop Wilson, RGIII and future running QBs. It's what happened to Cam Newton this season. Guys get enough film on a QB and things change. Typically the running QB relies too much on his legs to make adjustments and that just doesn't happen.

    Mike Vick is probably the greatest dual threat QB of all-time and that's saying something.


    I'm really surprised by what i saw from Kaapernick last night. I was wondering if Dom Capers was soft in the head. Don't you force young QB's to read coverages correctly? The Packers plan was playing man to man and leaving Mac truck like running lanes for Kap if he couldn't find anyone. It was mind boggling!
