    Wait a minute. I see what happened here. I did not mean "embrace" literally. Now, that's ok if it's consensual, but just to make sure I didn't cloudy the situation.

    I think this article sheds a similar light on my take...though goes into more depth. Please read if you get a chance. The emphasis on QBs and athleticism is quite clear, to the younger levels....

    I was going to add that I could see a lot of NE fans being mobile too, as they look for another local team to keep them happy.

    But boy, isn't it nice not to have to hear about them and watch these...

    Well then, lets just say I don't define a passing/mobile QB the way you do. The league is full of passing/running QBs who are making the game harder to defend, and possibly more exciting. I think...

    So Bronxie….would you not agree with this statement:

    These 4 pro bowlers - Jackson, Wilson, Watson and Mahomes are all very capable passers and runners?

    You are so right....a new look QB that is given the opportunity to max out, with a solid run game, and also a solid D. Too many obstacles in trying to defeat this team. Even if Jackson is having an...

    It is a fine line, but I believe QBs are becoming better equipped to throw and run of late. Jackson is an anomaly, given no one has ever been as effective in one season (IMO) with his legs and arm....

    Maybe we have a slightly different interpretation of what a mobile/athletic/passing QB is, but I do think that Jackson is already a success, and only into year 2. As for Russ Wilson, the other All...

    Based on the All Pro team, the mobile, athletic, passing QB is back big time. Jackson and Wilson. Two of the finest examples of this style, and I would say, trend.

    The Pro Bowl includes both...

    Based on early reviews, the 2020 QB draft class might be a god one, with possibly a handful going in the 1st round.....and a number of them are quite athletic/mobile.

    Not to try to "emphasize" my take, but the 2 leading MVP candidates are Wilson and Jackson (with McCaffrey still in the race), and the last winner was Mahomes. Three highly mobile/athletic/versatile...

    Further, as much as I like good drop back passers, I'd be excited to have a Mahomes or Watson on our team. Make plays in the air and on the ground, extend plays, keep Ds off balance. These guys have...
