Do the best QBs have the best protection? When you look at the numbers Brady, Brees, Ryan and a few others puts up regularly, especially in the biggest games, the thing that amazes me most is the protection they get. Even against the teams with the best upfront men on D. They seem to rarely get pressure on those QBs. It is the protection right? Or is it that those QBs get rid of the ball more quickly than others? It seems more like the protection they are offered to me. A nicely formed pocket to step up into constantly, with a 3, 5, or 7 step drop. I dream of the day the Cardinals place priority in building an OL that is that good and deep. I just can't understand for the life of me how any organization doesn't see that as a top priority and do whatever it takes to accomplish that basic goal. Is it simply that there aren't that many good OLmen to go around? If that is the case, then a bigger paycheck will acquire the best OL. Maybe its much better to acquire a less expensive average QB who is protected constantly by a higher paid and better front line. Take a look at the teams with what could be great QBs but have poor OLs. I am thinking of the Colts as I type this. I would like to have a coaching staff that is, at the beginning at least, more concerned about our OL than which QB they get. Build the perfect OL first and then simply get an accurate QB who has time to quickly go through his progressions and deliver the ball on time. Who cares if it's a Alex Smith or Baker Mayfield. It won't matter. I truly believe that losing teams who are constantly looking for and changing qbs, never seeming to find the right fit (as they refer to it), refuse to first address their OL. They keep looking for that savior at QB to change their team's fortune. And the pundits keep reiterating that they need a more mobile QB or they need a QB with a bigger arm, when what they need is protection for whoever their QB is. Remember: Trying is one thing, doing is another. My dream is that we finally do it. Excuses are for the unsuccessful. Excuses aren't needed when you accomplish your goals. NO EXCUSES! JUST DO IT! This would be my motto if I were the coach. My next sermon will be entitled: TIME TRAVELERS - Why They Don't Exist .... or Do They?
