Cosell likes traditional pocket passers. He doesnt like the new dual threat qbs like Kap , Wilson , Newton and now Mariota. Its no surprise he would poo poo Mariota.  From what Ive read most scouts love Mariota , however.

He dislikes them for a reason.  They are not winning right now. He doesn't classify Wilson in that category as he thinks most of his runs are by design and he's primarily a pocket passer.

Right, Cosell believes having the ability to scramble encourages these players to abandon progression and in generally doesn't allow them to develop a "pocket mindset." You can win with them, that's not to say you can't win with one. I think Cosell believes they end up leaving larger passing plays on the field while attempting to run or scramble. I agree 100%, I watched Jeff Garcia do it.

Please wait…
