Sure, it's possible that you can strike gold with a rookie QB who requires no coaching or mentoring or assistance in making the adjustment to the NFL, but ... wow ... unlikely would be an understatement.

Let's be realistic for a moment. It makes far more sense to install a coach who can help a young guy develop ... regardless of his initial talent level or skill ... than simply hope that we hit on a Manning.

No one is saying they require no coaching.

Let me put it like this:

Some students have a hard time understanding Algebra.

You can explain an equation to Matt over, and over and over again. His tutor can explain it over, and over and over again.

And on Test day, Matt still hasn't figured it out.

Now, that same teacher can explain that algebra problem to Andrew just once, and Andrew has it down. Now, over the course of the next 16 tests, new formulas will have to be explained, but it won't take long for Andrew to figure them out, he'll just need some practice since these tests are constantly throwing new and exotic equations at him.

Eventually, because of Andrews acute ability to solve math problems, he'll get it all down.

Matt on the other hand.....well....16 tests into the course, and he's still struggling with that first equation.

We need an Andrew.

Not a Matt.

And there are plenty of Andrews in the NFL. There might be only one Peyton, but plenty of Andrews.
