Hogs Want More Leadership From QBs

In NFL draft circles, there’s been quite a bit of discussion about Ryan Mallett and his lack of leadership skills.  Well Arkansas offensive coordinator Garrick McGee wishes his current signal-callers were more like Mallett in the leadership department.

“That’s what we’re missing right now,” McGee told  “Those are the facts.  That somebody has to step forward and be confident and tough enough to push their peers.  That’s not really popular nowadays in this society that we live in to push your guys — the peers that you have.  But for us to be a really good team and accomplish what we want to accomplish, we have to get that done.”

So why was Mallett good at pushing his peers?  “Ryan didn’t really need any friends.  So he was able to push everybody.”

Interesting.  You have to wonder if a lack of friends in the locker room has been viewed by some NFL execs as a lack of leadership.  Clearly, Mallett’s coach felt his willingness to do the unpopular thing is precisely what made him a good leader.
