Richard Sherman, who has played in just 10 games over the last two seasons, talked about the quarterback's in this year's draft on his podcast, "The Richard Sherman Podcast." He started where the draft did, with Kenny Pickett.
The former member of the Legion of Boom, isn't sure that Pickett is the quarterback of the future for the Steelers. One reason is that Sherman doesn't trust Pickett. Why? The gloves.
Sherman doesn't trust a quarterback who wears gloves all the time.
From Steeler Nation:
“Do I think he’s the quarterback of the future? I don’t know. It’s hard for me to trust a quarterback who wears gloves all the time. It’s just different. It’s just different. I just have a hard time with it, but he swings it. He’s effective,” Sherman continued. “We’ll see how effective he is. And Pittsburgh, they do a great job of development. They haven’t had another quarterback under center starting consistently since Ben Roethlisberger and I mean, Ben’s been there for years and that, so that’ll be interesting.”
That's enough for me. I'm a huge fan of these kinds of reasons to doubt a guy. It's not his play or necessarily his small hands, it's the fact that he wears gloves all the time.
I have a similar reasoning for not trusting dudes. If you're only out in the cold for 30 minutes or less and you wear gloves I can't trust you.
