    Mett doesn't like to be moved off his spot though. That's the difference. He has to learn to create from the pocket.

    Haven't watched him play much, but obviously he has to be able to move around in the pocket.

    I'm pulling for the kid. I like his ability from the pocket. Stands tall, very sharp. Still coachable.

    I hear you. My only concern is that he was dismissed from Georgia due to some off field stupidity, but hopefully he got that fixed (though LSU isn't exactly known for great character players...)

    Unfortunately, we don't get to include Steve Young and Brett Favre in that mix. Steve Young began as a scrambler/runner and Favre... hell, didn't know what he was going to do half the time with his legs! :D

    Big Ben isn't neccessarily a statue either. Neither is Rogers. Plenty of "mobile "QBs have won or competed. Now what are peoples definition of mobile?

    I think the difference is how often they start running.

    Rodgers uses it as an ace in the hole. Ben used it much more when he was younger, now he just scrambles to create time.

    Compare that to McNair, rg3, Vick, locker, who all need that running style to compete

    Just because they're pocket QBs doesn't make them statues. Mett has some of the heaviest feet I've seen from a QB, he's a good player but I wouldn't compare him to some of the greats in the NFL just because they don't run. Manning is brilliant, Brady is a great pure passer, etc etc.

    There is a reason why Mett was sacked 4 straight times against Bama...
