A big, excellent pocket passer will never
go out of style... when you make great decisions and can take a beating, you're ALWAYS going to win plenty.
Luck ended the year with 54%, a stat that will surely climb, but he made great decisions and was always able to stay in the game, and you could ALWAYS tell his team had faith in him, as evidenced by their play.
The new breed like Wilson, Kaepernick, 3... absolutely, they are thrilling players in every sense of the word, but at some point even the most durable of them (wilson, kaep imo) will have to scale back the running and focus on the passing much more, thats flashy, high risk scheming will sooner or later sideline them way too much to hold their jobs.
Running ability for a quarterback is nothing more than the gravy on top of your pocket passing meat and potatoes.
