True definition of the Quarterback of the Future:

A guy who can stand in the pocket, make good decisions and make plays in the passing game.

Just like the Quarterback of the Past.

It's cool if they can run around a little bit for the first 4-5 years of their career, but it not necessary.

I tend to agree, however had colin scored a td on that last goal line, he'd be a super bowl champ and perhaps mvp.

Colin played an excellent game in the pocket, reading defenses, and making great throws. His running for the most part was taken away. That's why running quarterbacks don't do well in the postseason.

The QB of the future has all of those qualities + enough speed to take advantage of wide open running lanes. Basically any QB in the same mold as Aaron Rodgers or Andrew Luck.

And since those people are few and far between you will still have plenty of your traditional pocket passers because a pure running QB still doesn't work in the NFL. Guys who can do both are great but passing ability is the most important thing. If they can run too great but its still secondary.

I'm just saying, if I have to choose between two qbs with the same passing ability but only one can run well, I'm going to take the guy who can run anyday

The ability to move around to buy time in the pocket will always trump down-field running ability as well and should be on the list too.

Yes...Montana, Marino, Brady come to mind. Roethlisberger is great at this too. Extending plays.

Bill Walsh's West Coast philosphy included receivers making adjustments to extend the route if the ball wasn't thrown. That goes hand-in-hand with a quarterback who can move around and extend plays. Montana was tailor-made for it. And it can be argued that Walsh knew what he had in Montana and tailored the offense accordingly. It works both ways.

Brees is very adept at it as well, especially for finding open throwing lanes to compensate for his lack of height. Wilson showed a fair bit of the same skill-set this year too.

Tannehill has those attributes as well.
