Update.
They had to get this ironed out quickly as John needs to hire more coaches. Having an extension will help with that. Everybody wants some job security....except those who hate their jobs.  :fishin:


He's probably weighing his other options before signing on the dotted line. Maybe looking at the XFL, restaurant management, or close magic.

Yeah bringing up a once in what 30+ yr situation makes so much sense.  Sure,


You're flailing now you fucking cunt.

Or you are an ignorant fuck.
 

So we should get a HOF QB and have Lamar sit for 4 yrs behind him.  That s a great plan.


It's in no way a plan nor presented as one. The fact thats what conclusion you drew from that post just emphasizes how dumb you are.

Stick to predicting negative things and publicly patting yourself on the back you fucking cunt.

I also wonder if we should change expectations for mobile QBs. Maybe instead of a 12 - 15 year career instead hope for a 8 - 10* year one. Having a good passing QB who can run at times is such a great weapon so I'd still utilize it some to keep defenses off balance.

Back to Steve Young (who was a freak and had great weapons) some of his best passing years he still had 400 - 500 yards rushing. The defense had to respect that and that opened other things up. So even if Lamar becomes a good passer I'd run him at times.

*Longevity as a metric to get into the Hall of Fame bothers me at times. I'm not saying I want someone who had two great years get in, but I'm not sure I think 10 is needed either.

I see your point. I guess I just figure Lamar will never be a good pocket passer and will always want to run it himself first. What worries me is having a pocket passer as a backup and running 2 completely different systems. However, and unfortunately, I think it's just a matter of time before Lamar gets an injury that takes away his unique running ability and kills the run-pass-option system. Then we're stuck with neither a good pocket passer or an uninjured guy to run the rpo offense. Sooooo I guess you convinced me.
 
Now the question is where do you find a decent pocket passer who's willing to be a backup in an rpo offense?


I hold out hope Lamar can become a pocket passer first and rusher second. Others have done it and Lamar has only played half a season. Steve Young ran first for years then learned to stay in the pocket more often. Team/fans just have to be patient with young QBs and that's not easy to do.

I'd be very comfortable with RGIII as a backup.

I think the receivers and o-line are part of the reason why Lamar ran so much. Get actually dangerous targets and things may open up.
