Questions you need to ask when building one of these;
#1, Regular or Casual leagues? Yes it makes a difference. A well built dual threat QB can have better success in Casual than regular leagues due to the limitations of what a Defensive Coach can do. Note, I said easier... not easy.
#2, Which side of the offense do you wish him to be best at? Throwing or running? You must pick a side. You can make a Qb that can throw very well but only occasionally 'scrambles' and even when they do run it's not for much yards. More often that kind of QB uses it's 'scrambling' to buy some time in the pocket. Note the SA's and VA's on the RBQ arch for such actions.
Or you can make a Michael Vick type that can run but isn't what one would consider a great passer. This kind of QB is used as a runner first... with some passing thrown in now and then to keep defenses on their toes.
#3, Style of QB? If making a true RQB out of the RQB arch then you're talking an 'elusive/speed' based style more often than not. However, you can also make a PHB style RQB out of the Deep Passer arch as well.
#4, Who is your OC? A successful 'dual threat' Qb needs an OC that can tailor an offense around your limitations and skills. Since you're building a 'dual threat', what my colleagues above have said holds some truth. Because you're trying to tackle TWO offensive productions you'll never be as good as the QB that only concentrates on ONE style... throwing or running. So your OC has to take the skills you have and fit the offense to take advantage of that. I wold not say I'm the premiere authority in all things Offense but I've had enough experience by now to know what little I do know... which is shared above.
So when asking 'what's a good final build' the first thing you have to answer are those questions above. THEN you'll know what numbers to shoot for.Originally posted by reddogrw
as long as it's not the only QB and you also have a pure passer you can have the dual QB throw some
Believe it or not, last season (Casual) we ended up with 2 RQB's... no passing QB's. Just the way it went in the FA market. We managed to win our division, make the playoffs, and make a solid Championship run. This season we'll be more conventional in the way you describe. It was a challenge to figure things out with no pure passer but we passed very well and ran a lot and did ok. I wouldn't recommend it though. Much better to have both types of QB's.
