Is an NFL quarterback the most difficult job in the world?


Bear with me please this is just for fun. It's a pet theory of mine that you'd be hard pressed to find a more difficult job regardless of the field of work. My logic goes as follows. At any given time in the NFL there are approx. 5 great quarterbacks active. There are 5 or so really good quarterbacks followed by 5 to 10 good quarterbacks and the rest of the field is mediocre. These are loose numbers but you follow my drift.

Now we have the entire planet to fill just 32 jobs and you would think just from sheer numbers you could find 32 really good to great people to fill this job. But you can't. Be it nuclear scientists, brain surgeons, fighter pilots, Navy Seals, CIA operatives, quantum physics scientists etc. etc. there are hundreds and thousands of super qualified men and women that do these difficult jobs at a high level of competency.

Since it's required to give a Bradford opinion on this sight (although he is not really the reason for the post) I'll say that I believe Sam could be a good quarterback on a team with a strong line and very good skill position players. As it stands now he doesn't have the outstanding field vision and instincts which make quarterbacks great.

I would love to hear some opinions on this and lastly.....Go Rams!!!
