THREE QB's have played in a system that gets more and more bogged down with every passing game, regardless of who plays in it. 

Despite this, the discussion is STILL about the QB and not about the system.

First Michael Vick "holds the ball too long, so we should put in Nick Foles who makes quicker decisions". So then Nick Foles gets in and HE "holds the ball too long". Today Matt Barkley got a shot and he ALSO held the ball a bit, didn't he? So hey, here's a thought: Perhaps the routes are taking too long to unfold! But that would be a systemic issue wouldn't it?

We need a mobile QB threat so LeSean McCoy can run. Huh? What other NFL team operates that way. Moreover if the system called for that, why don't we have THREE mobile QB's? Seems like another systemic issue. 

Every week it seems that teams have figured out this system a little more than the team from a week before. Points are getting harder and harder to come by regardless of who is throwing the passes, and we're talking about three VERY different QB's here; each of whom is talented in his own right and fashion. 

The fact that the O-line generates little to no push inside, hardly gets mentioned by fans. (But it was mentioned again today on FOX.) 

Despite this, the discussion is STILL about the QB and not about the system.

These are systemic problems, yet the hue and cry is to fix a symptom and not cure the disease.
