@Johnny U Here's the problem with Black QB's! They are usually the best athlete on there high school team. So they drop back to pass the pocket breaks down and the first thing they do is run. This is the beginning of them forming bad habits.When they run usually good things happen for their team,so their high school coach doesn't care as long as their winning.Most white QB's aren't the best athlete on the team and when the pocket breaks down the white QB is force to use his mind and slide in the pocket and find the open man. Then most of the Black QB's go to college and bring their bad habits with them thus never developing their potential. I am a Ram fan and I can tell you Steve Young was the same way. The best thing that happened to him was going to the 49ers who I hate! But Bill Walsh was a great coach and Steve Young had to sit and learn behind Montana.But Steve still wanted to run at first when the pocket started to collapse but Bill Walsh only wanted his QB's to run as a last resort and that took Steve a little while to learn, when to hang in the pocket till the last minute and find the open receiver or when to run. So until High school coaches start to make their Black QB's run only as the last option I just don't see the Black QB developing in the same numbers as the white QB's.

Stanford vs. Wake Forest
Recording didn't start until mid-1st QTR
Andrew Luck - Quarterback - #12 - Stanford (black jerseys)
1st - 6:31 - Very lofty, slow deep ball that is floated ... horrible coverage by CB ... this ball
should have been broken up ... not impressed by this TD pass 35-yard TD pass.
1st - 1:40 - 3-3-5 formation by Wake Forest ... with blitzing LBer Luck reads Cover-1 shell zone ... smooth,
accurate pass to WR on post route ... not a ball with much zip but it has correct amount of touch
to make it an easy enough catch for the WR
1st - 1:11 - Ball is slightly off target on deep post ... Ball could have had a lot more zip but
Luck floats it ... receiver could have had this ball, but Luck could have been more accurate here too ...
receiver was wide open with blown coverage by safety ... clean pocket to throw from
2nd - 11:17 - Touchdown to wide open RB on flare route ...not an impressive pass, but you'll be impressed
if you only read the box score
2nd - 7:55 - (3rd&6 on own 48 yd line) ... All receivers covered ... steps up in pocket for passing line ...
quickly decipers to run with football ... Shows adequate athleticism to scramble ... nice hurdle
to avoid sack once he crosses LOS ... not caught from behind by Wake Forest safety #21 (lets assume he runs
a sub 4.65 40 time) ... 52 yard touchdown run for Andrew Luck. Very impressive play
2nd - 3:46 - Ball slightly overthrown on fade route from 2 yard line.
3rd - 13:10 - Very nice throw on fade route ... excellent touch and accuracy ... incomplete but Luck
put the ball where it needed to be - only where his WR could catch it.
3rd - 11:10 - Nice route by WR ... good route combination and play call which fooled the defensive backs ...
Luck throws to wide open WR for an easy TD ... hard to mess that play up.
