Marc Bulger Height: 6-3
Steve Mcnair Height: 6-2

true....but its the ability to read the defense...make SMART decesions that makes a good QB..and having a good O line is a must.

this is the key, you need more than a big arm, you need to know what you are doing out there cause you have alot of reads to make in a very very short amount of time. like Brad Johnson, he isnt the most skilled QB out there but he is smart and oesnt make many mistakes and gets the job done. John Elway didnt have a cannon for an arm but he got it done as well as anyone ever has.

it's not always about height (flutie vs. r. johnson), but it seems to be most of the time
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good

Height and a nice, strong arm.

Perfect example = Mr. Ryan Leaf, QB for the good 'ol Cougars.

Having a good arm and the ability to see over the line is nice, but as said above, being able to read defenses is key. As long as the QB can get the ball where it's needed and keep the ball out of opposing players hands, he should do fine.

Almost all QB's can put up decent numbers when given time in the pocket. The ability to run and make things happen with their legs is what makes QB's special.

Clutch performance is always a deciding factor - let's take Favre for instance
