First, Johnny Football is extremely unique even among scrambling QBs. Second, Bama was coming off the LSU game and had to play him but once they adjusted A&M didn't score much more and could have lost that game on a last second, goal line play. But, no mistaking that he is special in that he not only runs like a rabbit but he is terribly effective passing, too. That is what distinquishes him because most running Qbs are poor passers. Just my opinion, but if any QB runs a lot he's apt to get hurt. Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and countless other pocket QBs have proven quality years, healthy years at the position. Alabama's McCarron can run when needed, but generally stays in the pocket. That's where his protection is and once you leave that pocket you're vulnerable. It takes a very talented Manziel to be able to throw well on the run. Running was essentially what ended McNair's football career (not talking about his death). It almost ended Vick's and others. All in all, I'll take a QB that runs when absolutely necessary, but fundamentally stays in his pocket.
