Just looking at a few of the elite QB’s….Brees, Rodgers, and Brady….all of them sat behind pretty good QB’s before getting their chance. I’m wondering how much a few years practice and holding a clipboard effects a players success. Manning doesn’t fit the profile, but 75% is a big number. Luck and Wilson while promising are far from elite.
Unfortunately, holding the clipboard has become a thing of the past. Brady & Rogers didn’t have a choice but to sit and wait. Since this is a win now league, coaches don’t have the luxury of sitting their rookie qb especially those taken in the first round.
