Have a QB with a ton of mobility and an iffy arm
Have a QB with a huge arm and OK mobility?
Huge arm if he's accurate.

What kind of mobility with the huge arm? Something like Rothlesberger?

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
I think a combination starts with intelligence (taking advantage of what the defense gives you),
patience (to make the proper read), touch (hard to catch a five yard laser), accuracy (goes without saying), and lastly courage (stand in the pocket and deliver). That being said, I got to go with the strong arm-limited mobility quarterback.

The Gus Bus is coming! Get on or get run over, your choice!
I do think it depends somewhat on the system and the supporting cast, but I would go with the better arm over mobility alone.
Jamarcus Russell came a lot closer to winning it all than Denard Robinson, but I really wouldn't want to be at either extreme.
Huge arm. Until more mobile QB's start winning championships (pro & college) I'll stick with the natural passers. You can't be lucky enough to get a Cam Newton every season.

You got to have an arm. If you want a QB with mobility and an iffy arm we should just use one of the many former HS QB's we have on our roster to run the wildcat the whole game. I'm sure they could throw when needed and would probably do decent at it but then we'd look more like a spread/wishbone, power option, GTECH kinda offense.
I would also rather have accuracy over power any day. Make the throws that are necessary and don't screw up the easy stuff that's all I want this year in our QB and we'll win 10 games easy.
