I think a lot of questions can be answered this year in the NFL by Chip Kelly. He has gutted the "stars" on the team and will be starting a bunch of new guys this year. Last years team was 10-6 IIRC and missed the playoffs. This year he will be starting a new QB be it Bradford or a drafted QB(yes there is a shot for Sanchez as well).
I have always been curious to see if an NFL team would take this type of approach with the QB. Will be interesting to see this year play out. Especially seeing the success of some of the other non traditional QBs such as Russell Wilson.
There is about to be a passing of the torch soon with the QBs such as Peyton, Brady, Brees getting closer to retirement and could be seeing a change in style soon enough. Great article!
