    Who's better suited for the WCO?

    Not that I think we're going to that exculsivley, but if they're going use alot more 3 step drops and fire the ball out quickly to short and intermediate passes.I would think it would favor Fiedler more. Just wondering.
    I believe I can fly.

    You're going to get accused of being repetitive in light of the thread I started earlier this week. I say that because I got accused of it because it was dicussed in December.

    I think it does favor Fiedler, particularly since others have said that AJ struggles with short accuracy.




    I've got so many lawyers lined up to see me, you'd think I had tobacco leaking out of my breast implants.

    I hate to say it, but i think fiedler is better suited for it. He doesn't have the arm strength for long balls

    The WCO requires good accuracy and the ability to throw from the pocket. That pretty much eliminates Fiedler as a good candidate.

    Fiedler has forced both Gailey and Turner to basically rip out pages of their respective playbooks, due to his lack of talent.

    Giving Jay a shot at yet another offense is as ridiculous as the idea of having him start for a 5th consecutive year.

    '02 Norv utilize underneath passes alot more and Jay started out the year very well until injury came along.I wouldn't be surprise to see Jay play really well in a more west coast oriented offense.

    I still want to wait and see Feely play. Once he is comfy in the system we run here. I am tired of watching and yelling at the TV when Fiedler plays.
    Offseason again... at least this one should be exciting!

    I've been saying it for years. He'd be a much better WCO QB. But I'm still hoping Feeley wins out. I think once he gets comfy, he'll be better.

    I'm not particularly high on this traditional view that a WCO is friendly to QBs without great armstrength.

    The best WCO quarterbacks I can think of in recent memory are Montana, Favre, Elway, Young, Gannon, and McNabb. Of those, only Montana had an arm comparable to Jay's...and to tell you the truth, I think Montana's arm might have been better. The only other good WCO QB I could bring up with weak armstrength is Pennington but his offense isn't a true WCO...its the old Kansas City offense which mixes WCO with straight up vertical passing attacks.

    The prototypical WCO quarterback is JP Losman, not Philip Rivers.

    I still am scratching my head with all the impatience over Feeley. I mean come on, this is a new team and new wrs. This is his first of many camps. Add to that we are putting in new plays and developing timing. Yeesh, of coarse Jay is gonna have it easier with Chambers and other due to years of throwing it to them. He still hasnt hit the deep ball with pads on. I think AJ has shown already he has the stronger arm. Patience to all. Dolfanreal69

    The problem is right now, this is about as good as Fiedler will be in September. What we see now is what we'll get. What we see now out of AJ is not what we get in September, so have patience.
