    Another reason for the poor performance of NFL offenses and their QB's is the unnecessary direction the NFL has gone in making not only making it a pass-friendly league despite it's limited number of passers, but the way they have devalued the position of the RB in spite of the plethora of competent athletes in that area.

    it doesn't help that QB's are asked to continually do less in college and then have the huge responsibility of leading complex offensive schemes which they've never seen before to battle vs. complex defenses which they've never seen before.

    There are also too many GMs and HCs that are stuck in their ways and have a strict & specific prototype as to whom can play the position.
    Smart coaches evolve with the game.

    This is another good reason to have a minor league in football. Since that was suggested yesterday buy Sons (i think) I've really started to buy in to the idea. Give these kids a place to develop and maybe even a career opp to stay in football if they can't ever reach "the show". Extra money for the club and an expanded fan base.

    I think "getting thrown to the wolves" has something to do with it. Because they are drafted so high and you have to know if they are going to be your "franchise" by the fourth year, they start earlier instead of sitting back and learning. Look at the real successful ones. A lot of them were not handed the starting job on day one. They learned and earned. Also, most of these new QB's are going to terrible teams that probably means a lack of skill players, a weak offensive line to keep them upright and/or a subpar defense so the team is putting everything on the QB's shoulders.
