Steve Young and Randall Cunningham had long careers. I suspect they're bigger than RGIII, and of course Young was built like a truck. I see your point about a pocket passer being safer, though.
It's weird to me that every single Super Bowl isn't won by a running quarterback, and in fact they never are. Running quarterbacks scare the bejeezus out of me on defense. It's like having a 12th man lining up at running back. But obviously there's some flaw in my thinking.
