    Whoever made it conventional wisdom for a NFL quarterback to NEVER take off with the ball needs to re-think this.

    Consultants and coaches have pretty much programmed the Favres and the Romos of the world to NEVER take off. This is really stupid.

    IF a QB is known to take off with it, defensive coordinators hesitate to blitz him, and the defensive line thinks twice before teeing off on him. This slows down the pressure, makes the passing game easier and keeps that element of danger always present in the minds of defenders, including most importantly, the secondary.

    But when you are fully committed to standing back there, grilling hot dogs and holding that ball while the world is falling down around you, you get what we saw in New Orleans and Minnesota the last couple of weeks: Drew Bledsoe at QB for the Cowboys and Vikings. Clue to NFL quarterbacks: They are after you because you have the ball, dumbass. NOT because you have a hotter wife than they do, not because you make more money and get all the press, because of the fucking BALL. They want it or they want you to EAT it.

    Now, of course I understand -- they tell them not to run in order to prevent injuries. But does it prevent injuries to get HIT 20 times like Favre and Romo did? Does it prevent injuries to take stupid sacks all damn day?

    RUN

    WITH

    THE

    GODDAMNED

    BALL

    EVERY

    FUCKING

    CHANCE

    YOU

    GET.

    Coaches and consultants: Turn these guys LOOSE and let them take off when they feel the urge! Stop screwing with their heads. They have the "slide" and all kinds of rules in their favor once they take off.

    And it WILL cause defenses to not be so aggressive. They WILL be playing that run, opening up the passing lanes and making your offense more unpredictable and therefore more productive -- and actually making the game safer for your quarterback.

    And isn't that what you really want?

    Yeah, it's not like they get tackled in a kinder, gentler way if they just stay in the pocket

    Steve Young lost a LOT of VERY LUCRATIVE years for running the ball TOO MUCH! You may also want to consider that QBs are NOT the fastest guys out there so to pick up TWO YARDS to get PLASTERED by a Linebacker is NOT the best use of a $20 MILLION QB.

    You may ALSO want to consider that MOST QBs are FAR more accurate in the "pocket" so rolling out to have the OPTION to run could lead to more INTERCEPTIONS.

    ~yawn~

    Young lost far MORE years sitting on a bench as backup.

    He was NEVER injured running the ball. And he didn't run all that often anyway.

    Fail.

    You're not seeing the point.

    They need to know it's okay to RUN every time they have the ball in their hands. NOT just on designed plays. Mainly on BUSTED plays.

    Instead of just sitting back there waiting to get clobbered. When a play breaks down, RUN!

    On a busted play with 15 yards with no defense any where NEAR them, yeah I couldn't agree more. I get your point but you also don't want a QB with happy feet who runs BEFORE considering ALL of his options.
