I am beginning to think that we are witnessing the next Qb to continue the line of Michigan Qbs starting in the NFL.... Of all the success recently with the wins and such, the biggest revelation, by far, is the improvement and rise of Wilton Speight. I've been watching him intently on every play....and am floored what Harbaugh has done here... this trumps his mentoring of Rich Gannon, a career journeyman turned top fantasy mvp star under Harbaugh. QB Whisperer, AMEN... Speight is pulling a ton of tricks and moves from nowhere, eluding pressure at an NFL level like Big Ben, continuing plays he had no business doing a year ago, just incredibly heady play all around. His pocket presence is fantastic. When I read he was way ahead of Rudock, I didn't believe it... fact is, it is not even close. Going forward, even on a low improvement level, we are looking at a starting NFL Qb in Speight, especially with another year here. His story may parallel Brady's time here somewhat.... was on the verge of transferring, behind the newcomer, yet perservered, and playing on Sundays.
Sure, I may be getting too forward on my skis here, but I cannot imagine I'm the only one who noticed the extremely proper Qb play by Speight in all facets, especially at eluding pressure.
