Yes, very good stuff. I'm firmly on board with the good running game-strong defense helps a rookie. Absolutely, but it helps all QB's as well.
I just think the success of the QB in their rookie season and early years has changed due to a more opened up college game which allows for a better feel for the NFL rookies when they get there.
Gone are the days of rookies coming from extemely run heavy offenses with one wideout/power sets in college. Those QB's threw 15-20 passes a game in very simplistic formations and routes.
Now, many rookies come in as Jr. gunslingers who used multiple wideout sets with a TE/WR and teams can force defenses to spread out and let the rookie see easier progressions and windows. Such as a certain play is a 5 step drop, progression is right to left window will be 1A,2B,3C. That's what they do now in college as well. Difference being the time to do it and the size of the window.
