Steve Young and Brett Farvre use/used their mobility to great advantage, but I don't recall either (except at the very beginning of Young's career, when he still bore the stigma of having played in another league and had to bear the burden of replacing Joe Montana) as often having their mobility used to explain away some of their phenomenal success at the position.

(On the other hand, I don't remember anybody praising Doug Williams' or Warren Moon's nonexistent mobility, though a lot of fuss was made about the latter's arm strength, as though that was a deciding factor...)

While I agree with most of what Selena Roberts has written here, there may be some NY provincialism in her opening contrast between Shockey and Owens. The former plays for the Giants, so of course he gets fabulous coverage in the NY Times (Selena Roberts' own paper). Not so for Owens, who plays for a rival. That may have something to do with it....
