Meh. The best QB I ever saw was listed at 6-2 and 200 pounds, and both of those are obviously likely exaggerated. I'm not scared of shorter QB's at all. This QB (obv Montana) was skinny though, and he was injured a lot. Skinny QB's do worry me, because they get injured and a guy who can't play can't help his team win.

I think the biggest reason shorter QB's rarely succeed, and purely my opinion, is the prejudice against them. They're drafted low and even if they start they're given a short leash and basically expected to fail.

The Drew Brees argument is obviously tired, but I don't know of a lot of other QB's who are under 6-2 that were given a legit opportunity to succeed. Wilson got a legit shot and he's done pretty well with it as a rookie. The sample size has been kept pretty small. I mean I don't think 5-9 linebackers are ideal, but if a guy can play, he can play.

Not really about Murray though. I like Geno better.
