    You already proved this point by putting together just a small list of failed short QBs. That list shows exactly what we are talking about. Probably over 90% of the QBs in the league right now are at least 6'1" or 6'2" and that percentage is even greater the further in the past you go. I think where guys that could be talented QBs tend to lose their chance is more so in college or even highschool where they are pushed into playing other positions due to their lack of size.

    Wilson not being drafted higher is also somewhat proving the point because he absolutely goes in the 1st if he were a few inches taller. Shorter QBs just simply get less chances in the NFL and that is because for the longest time a large part of the league believed that QBs had to be the prototypical 6'5" guy with a strong arm and guys have come along quite a few times and proven that to be false.

    When people keep on mentioning short QB’s, the name I keep seeing getting ignored is Jeff Garcia. He was short, small framed Qb, that had success with the 49ers, Eagles, and For a little bit the Buccaneers.

    Kyler has the bigger arm. Kyler doesn’t get happy feet like Garcia did. But let’s not forget that was Garcia electric when he was with Sf, running and passing. Which I think Murray will be for the Cardinals.

    If you think there aren’t enough programs out there begging for qualified quarterbacks of any stature, I don’t know if you’ve ever played the game.

    Mayfield on playing the #AZCardinals/Murray on December 15th.

    Mayfield "There will absolutely be smack talk. That’s my guy. It’ll be fun to play against him after competing against him in practice and being around him everyday. It’ll make this matchup so much more enjoyable."

    Cardinals rookie QB Kyler Murray on having his arm talents being compared to KC's Patrick Mahomes: “I mean, he obviously won MVP. I respect his game a lot. ... I think for me, it’s just working to be myself and just be the best me I can be. But no, I take it as a compliment.”

    I think what I see in him that maybe some of the naysayers don't, is that even if Murray decides to tone down the running from scrimmage, he still can be an elite QB based on his passing ability alone.

    I was a huge Mahomes fan boy when he was coming out and I do see the similarities in arm strength, touch, and ability to throw accurately from crazy angles. No one should ever **** with his mechanics.

    Thanks it's been a whirlwind of events. Not easy living away from home either. Can't seem to find time to get on the board much. It will slow down soon and I'll be here more often.

    Take it easy. Hopefully things will slow down soon. There is much Cardinals to talk about.
