I looked around and didn't see this posted within the first few pages so I thought I would share. I, for one, don't really buy the argument that the area a player comes from or the school they go to will impact how they'll play as a pro. However, this article has some interesting facts and numbers, as well as some quotes from some NFL personnel guys.
I'm indifferent on this issue, I just thought I would share. Personally, I like Barkley's leadership skills. He's a "first in, last out" kinda guy and he's not afraid to get after his teammates to motivate and lead them. That's something that's sorely missing with Fitzpatrick. Rarely, if ever, have I seen him on the sidelines getting his guys amped up. I know he's a lead by example type but more often than not his examples aren't the best. I wonder if he ever feels like he should say something but doesn't because how can he call someone else out when he himself isn't playing that well.
Anyway, here's the link: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--so...060900663.html
I would've just cut and pasted the article here but there's some tables and stuff that'll have it appear all mixed up on here. That list of QBs from the SoCal area isn't very promising.
