-He sits in the pocket too long looking for the right play. This goes back to the first point. You can't sit in the pocket for 5 or 6 seconds consistently in the NFL. You'll get sacked.
Wouldn't these first two points kind of contradict each other?

And this may be JMO, but playing QB would be somewhat like playing poker. If you do the same thing everytime, the DB's would figure you out. Sometimes you need to throw to the guy you are locked in on 1st, and sometimes not. Maybe you are bluffing, maybe you are not. Trick is, the good ones in both fields know when to do what.
