When I look at how these Scouts and Analysts regard a QuarterBack, I don't give a rat's ass about how far he can throw it on a wire, or how fast he runs the 40: Anyone who thinks that those Skills are the most critical ones in assessing a QuarterBack's ability to lead a team to a Championship have overlooked the last 90 years of History.
When I look at how these Scouts and Analysts regard a QuarterBack, 90% of my evaluation derives from comments on his Processing Speed, his Decision Making, his Field Vision, his Pocket Presence, and his Mechanics.
Blaine Gabbert scares the HELL out of me. His Pocket Presence is horrific...And that is in a Spread Offense, where he plays Shot Gun and is generally only asked to go with one read!!
If he's going to pieces in an Offense where he has all the time in the world to make the play, and only a fraction of the reads to process through before making a decision, I'm here to tell you that his career could be an extremely short nightmare!!
Needless to say, his Processing Speed, his Decision Making, and his Field Vision are severely undeveloped at best, and atrocious, at worst. And if it was simply a matter of experience and training, I find it very hard to believe that he'd be having such ugly issues, playing the incredibly simplified and Passer Friendly Offense he ran this year.
As always, the preceding thoughts were regurgitated, derivative tripe, adding no value whatsoever, while in fact obliterating intelligent thought and offending the spirit of all decent men. You are now stupider for having read it, and are encouraged, in the strongest possible language, never to expose your eyes to this Site again.
