Regret or No Regret
This has been an interesting offseason following the 2012 season that saw young QB's take the league by storm by combining the use of their legs with their arms and offseason of pocket passers being signed to long term big money contracts.
With the likes of Cam Newton, RG3, Colin Kapernick and Russel Wilson; we may have witnessed a changing of the guard at the QB position. When it comes to the read option and running QB's there are essentially two groups: those who believe its a fad like the wild cat or run and shoot and those who believe its here to stay.
On the heels of seeing 3 of those 4 running QB's making the playoffs, we see a number of teams in the league make big statements about what they think about running QB's. A number of teams have decided to lock up their non-running pocket passers long term with big contracts. GB, Detroit, Baltimore, the Cowboys, GB and now Atlanta have all made a rather large commitment to their pocket passers. You might even consider the Cards commitment to Carson Palmer, KC's trade for Alex Smith and Oaklands acquisition of Matt Flynn a nod for the pocket passer and a hint of what the majority of the league thinks about the read option running QB's.
Do you think these teams locking up the pocket passers are going to regret it ? How about the teams that have employed these running passers; will they be the ones that regret it ? Or neither ?
Personally, I'm curious to see how this thing plays out in 2013.
