Does everyone just ignore the fact that Football even during that time wasn't close to the pass happy football of today. So using struggling QBs in the past ain't always great comparison.
I be willing to bet these QBs would look like Wentz or Goff does now if they just started.
Of course no one wants to talk about this because it goes against the narrative that it isn't Trubisky fault for his poor performance.
It has been shown to be factual that some QBs take longer to develop than others. I was stating that as a fact. It is because it is in the record.
You are ignoring the point that I am making. Which is that some QBs (even HOF QBs) take time. And as I said in a subsequent post, I am not trying to say that Trubisky will be another Aikman, or any other HOF QB. I also said that I wasn't even trying to say that Trubisky will end up being a great QB. Because at this point in time, nobody knows what will happen with him.
The point is that neither of us knows at this time what is going to happen. We will just need to wait it out and see what happens. I have no preconceptions as to what will happen with Trubisky. Coming into the draft I was a fan of both Watson and Mahomes and thought Trubisky was too much of a project for that high a pick. But since we drafted him, I am rooting for him to succeed. And am willing to wait it out. Like any of us really has an option to that!
But your statement "Of course no one wants to talk about this because it goes against the narrative that it isn't Trubisky fault for his poor performance." sure sounds to me that you have made up your mind. And that is OK. If you want to bitch and moan about Trubisky, go ahead. Just don't throw the "narrative" terminology around.
Also there is no guarantee that any of the HOF QBs from previous eras would be HOF QBs in the current era. They may not even make a NFL roster. Because they had different skill sets and were playing a different game played by different rules. Hell with all the RPO stuff going around, Bobby Douglass might have been a solid QB in the current NFL game.
