    That was Weatherford's point when he tweeted it or posted it or whatever he did.

    I only saw it because it was on the Kissing Suzy Kolber site, which I started following because of its hilariously savage mockery of Peter King.

    It doesn't help that the hits he takes just look plain brutal. That compilation of the hits he took last night was nuts (and it wasn't even the 4th quarter).

    Niners fan and I just felt bad for RG3. He was getting hit on nearly every play in the second half.

    That said, WOOO NINERS

    I stand corrected on the height, but he's the shortest looking six two I've ever seen. I have not seen all his games, but when I have seen him his passing has not been nearly good enough to warrant the hype. And his attitude is questionable.

    Luck has taken some nasty hits this season as wwell. Pocket passrrs don't really exist anymore (save for the ones from 4-5 yrs ago)

    Russell is the qb that's like 5'10

    I think manziel is under 6 too so it'll be interesting to see how he does out of college

    Some GM will waste a too high draft pick on Manziel and he'll run his mouth and piss off everyone within a year. Plus he's the sort of guy that every defensive player would just love taking shots at.

    Manziel is going to be the evil Tim Tebow except he won't get any charity contracts because nobody likes him.

    Everyone takes hits.
    And what do you mean pocket passers don't exist? That's simply not true, even "running QB's" like Cam, Kap and Wilson are
    doing their best to pass out of the pocket first and run second. If this year has reinforced anything about the QB position its that a QB needs to be able to drop back and pass consistently and effectively or they're just a novelty act.

    ^ I agree with NorCal. Plus, I never feel like Luck (or Wilson, for that matter) is going to get lit up every time he gets tackled/sacked/etc. The same can't be said for RGIII with some of the stuff he pulls.

    RG3's attitude does suck this year. This is the first time he's ever really played badly and he hasn't really learned to avoid taking hits. He still thinks he can just out athlete NFL defenders like he could in college.

    That kick to the groin he took last night was :rotflmao:

    I meant pure pocket passers. They kind of are a rarity these days. I can't really think of one that has come out of college in the last 3-4 years. (Sam Bradford? Matthew Stafford? who I actually am not fond of Stafford at all but that is another story).

    RG3's biggest issue is learning how to slide and avoid uneccessary hits.

    Does being a pure pocket passer require one to be slow and unable to run? Sure, being able to run and be mobile doesn't hurt but it does not make a quarterback. Running quarterbacks take more hits and get injured more often until they learn how to play in the pocket. I'd take Brady / Manning / Brees / Rodgers and their respective successors over a flavor of the year running quarterback any day of the week. There have been running quarterbacks before and it hasn't created massive changes in the quarterback position. The mobility helps but I don't see it as a fundamental change.
