In the modern NFL, the evolution of mobile quarterbacks can be broken up into 5 separate eras.
The Shift-(1940s to 1960s)
The Experimental Era-(1970s to early 80s)
A New Wave-(1980s to mid 90s)
Here to Stay-(mid 90s to 00s)
2nd experimental Era-(2010s)

Sup everyone, I’m back. Moving forward, you should be seeing my face (and my videos) more often. Some notes I wanted add to this video. 1) I chose to focus on mostly the main mobile quarterbacks who impacted the style of play. I didn’t talk about every single dual threat (or any of the ones who ultimately failed like Johnny Manziel) 2. Steve McNair passed away in 2009 from fatal gunshot wounds. I chose not to talk about it because he wasn’t the primary focus of the video. R.I.P. Steve “Air” McNair. 3. With this being my first facecam video in awhile, let me know if you have any suggestions! And let me know what you thought of this style of video (the combo of facecam with highlights) Anyways, thanks guys for all your patience. Expect uploads more frequently from here on out!

Hey listen not hating not judging just truly giving you my input. I LOVE your videos, the content you produce is phenomenal both entertaining and educational. Adding your face (no offense) doesn’t ADD anything to the content, if anything it takes away from photos, statistics, charts, highlights. This is MY personal view it may very well be different from others.

Bobby Douglass (who could throw an 80-yard pass) was "the running QB" only because George Halas was a cheap bastard. Don't believe me about Halas? Talk to Butkus and Sayers (both early 1st round picks the same year) who wasted their careers under Halas. Then talk to Ditka who became head coach for peanuts. Made his money in New Orleans.

Is Russell Wilson the most successful sub-6-foot QB in the Super Bowl era?

I think the modern success of mobile QBs in the NFL is primarily two-fold: 1. The mobile QBs coming into the NFL are bigger and better than they were 20+ years ago. I would think it's due to changes in training and coaching, but also acceptance of black QBs in general and super-athletes playing QB in particular - guys who 20-30 years ago would have played RB or LB 2. Changes in the NFL. Randall Cunningham was playing in the days of size over speed and smashmouth football. Remember when almost every team in the NFL had multiple Fullbacks on their roster and four WR formations were for Jeff Fisher and desperation? The NFL over the last 30 years has sped up and slimmed down, at least enough to make a difference in how the game is played. The Patriots and other teams have made the spread offense normalized in the NFL (and Brady is in the classic pocket-passer mold). Once speed become a big deal rather rather than making a five step drop and launching a deep bomb suddenly that transition from spread option in college to the NFL isn't so drastic and more players can make the leap. There's also the fact that while there are more athletic freaks playing QB who are more durable, many mobile QBs are still seeing their careers faceplant from one injury. Culpepper tore up his knee and became irrelevant. Mike Vick had his amazing season with the Eagles then got banged up the next season and the magic was gone. RG3 had an amazing rookie season, blew out his knee, and became awful. I would be interesting to look back at QB busts from the 90s and consider who among them might have been successful with the same skillset if they came into the NFL today.

My guess is that Lamar is not going to win a Superbowl for next couple of years because the NFL is just getting better an new rookies are rising and teams are just getting better. Share your opinion in the comments.

Will Lamar win a Super Bowl? As a Seahawks fan, I hope not (mostly because I hope Russ wins every Super Bowl between now and when he retires after winning his 18th league MVP in 2055), but realistically, hell yeah he will. The Ravens organization is just too consistently good for him not to.

I personally don't think the ravens will win a super bowl anytime soon. I would say yes if Patrick Mahomes didn't just sign a ten year extension. It is clear that the chiefs have the best all around offense in the AFC and very possibly NFL. The Ravens will likely have to face the chiefs each year in the AFC Championship if they continue to have this success and I just can't see them winning. By the time Mahomes starts to truly slow down, Lamar will have taken too many hits to be as effective.

They protect QB's more nowadays, therefore they wont get battered as much as the previous generation. Most slide to give up yards and live another down. Cam Newton is an exception as his massive. People want to hurt him and he wants to hurt them. You rarely see Cam give up on a play. That's opposite of Mahomes and Wilson who will gladly give up yards. But then it only takes one bad hit to really change a course of someone's career, these guys will not be running around much once they hit their 30s. Best example is Russell Wilson, he's become a more patient passer as he got older. But then team success hasn't been kind to him, as he really needs that defense to bail his ass out in the playoffs. Dude's only 9-6 with some of the most stellar defenses to play with in this era. He's got to have more than that. One could argue that his offense were never good, but they've had talent in Seattle even though they take the most unorthodox approach to team building. Baldwin, Lynch, Okung, Carson. In conclusion, you can have a running quarterbacks, but you better have a defense that can bail their ass out when things get really though in the playoffs. All the scrambling, and highlight making play won't do you any good when competition is up a notched.

Only if they stay healthy. A mobile quarterback plays Russian Roulette every time they attempt to score with their feet etc.

Lamar will win a super bowl I don’t think people realize how young the Ravens offensive weapons was compared to say KC Ravens average age of starters in playoffs was 22 years old most first time playing in playoffs while the Chiefs average age of their weapons was 26 and been in the playoffs before Mahomes experience matters in the post season
