Re: Let's Talk QB Height (w/ Daniel going to N.O.)

Let's not forget Doug Flutie. My buddy played hoops with him a few times in Bethany Beach and he swears he wasn't taller than 5'8", yet he had a pretty decent career. He was also a pretty good all around athlete.
Joe Gibbs- The best coach of all time, Lombardi trophy should be renamed Gibbs.

Art Monk- Art was like an OL playing WR, doing the dirty work and not getting the glory.

Darrell Green- Best DB ever.

Here's what I REALLY don't get...

Drew Brees - 6' 0"
Kurt Warner - 6' 2"
Jake Delhomme - 6' 2"
Tony Romo - 6' 2"
Aaron Rodgers - 6' 2"
David Gerrard - 6' 1"
Brett Favre - 6' 2"
Tavaris Jackson - 6' 2"
Mark Sanchez - 6' 2"
Michael Vick - 6' 0"
Donovan McNabb - 6' 2"
Seneca Wallace - 5' 11"

For the Saints, he could be Brees 2.0... (I'll tell you what... it's a great opportunity for him to learn behind a guy who certainly has made 6'0 work!)

Don't get me wrong... I'm not drunk on Daniel Flavored Kool-Aid, nor do I think he's going to be as good as Drew Brees... what I don't get is how his height has anything to do with his ability to QB in the NFL.

Is there REALLY that much difference in an inch or two? Does that make one QB a Hall of Famer and the other a non-drafted, 53-man cut?

Anyone else that doesn't get this whole thing?? Have a GOOD explanation?
If Vick is 6'0 then Daniel looks to be 5'8 or 5'9 for real Vick looks bigger than him.

The signed him from the practice squad. He is now part of their active roster for this Sunday's game.

New Orleans Saints add Chase Daniel to 53-man roster | New Orleans Saints Central - - NOLA.com
