How Changes in NFL, Impact Who You Draft at QB

Changes?? What Changes?? Well aside from the impacts of technology and legalities, the games focus has shifted to more offense and less defense. Is it because coaches have intentionally ignored needs on the defensive front? Every coach knows defense wins championships...right??

Did you know, the top teams in each division, AFC and NFC, the Patriots and Packers respectively, rank last in defense. Now it doesn't matter when your team scores more points. My theory is that when your team scores an average of 35 to 40 points a game, defenses give a little more. (What do you guys think?) We all know Bellicheck is a defensive master mind and yet his team ranks dead last. I find this irony very fascinating.

I believe the Patriots and Packers among other teams, are proof that the NFL's focus has shifted to offense. In that case, who would you want leading your team behind by 10 in the Superbowl, Michael Vick or Aaron Rogers? I think we would all agree we want a pocket passer in that case. You need a prototypical pocket passers to win in the NFL now.

This is why I have been a little against the Redskins drafting RG3. I love the guy's attitude and will to win, but I am afraid he thinks run first, before throw. Now with NFL coaching, he may change. Donavan McNabb (when he had his legs), Michael Vick, Vince Young, Cam Newton will win a lot of games for you, but can they win the big one?

The ability for high scoring, has certainly changed the game. But there has always been the desire for a pure pocket passer: Joe Montanna, Troy Aikman, Kurt Warner, etc... I think the Redskins should do whatever they can to get themselves a Matthew Stafford or a Drew Brees or maybe even a Tom Brady.. that shouldn't be too hard.
