As I was scrolling thru the chat I noticed Brian say something that I think most people like to believe, but I think rarely comes true. They were comparing Beaver to Forcier and they keep talking about Forcier at this ceiling because he is already coached up, but Beaver has the arm and if you give him some time and coach him up he will be great. This is more true from college to pro, but in my experience this never works. Arm strength and athleticism are hugely overrated. Accuracy and decision making make a QB. Examples of QB's that need some time to be coached up that turned into anything. When I say that I mean as a passer. Obviously V. Young was a great college QB, but that was his feet. Look at P. White and his "dramatic improvement" this year. Once they got in the shit storm he started running...why...because he blows as a passer. Guys obviously improve as they mature, but more often than not your strengths remian your strengths. Bill Parcells was famous for saying "we are what we are". So I guess in closing I just want to say that don't expect Beaver to come in here study some film and work on his mechanics and he is gonna look like J. Elway and Forcier is gonna be stuck looking like J. Garcia. Forcier will always be the better passer, wether he will be the better QB for Rich we'll have to wait and see. Will he be Steve Young or
If anyone has an example of a QB that got coached up and really changed his game from being inaccurate to a stud I would be curious.
V. Young-being revealed as garbage
Stanton-this is a good test case, he's not horrible with accuracy but he's not good they tried to break down his mechanics. I see him being wht he is a guy that can make stuff happen and then throw a 10yd slant 5yds behind and inthe turf.
These guys had access to all the coaching in the world and they still couldn't hit a barn or read a coverage. Every once in a while you get the total package in Mcnabb, Steve Young or Elway but it's rare.
