When I was at a bar a few weeks ago a man told me he does not like the pic since the last quarterback to wear gloves, Danny Wuerffel, was a bust in the NFL. It's going back a long way but still. As a Steelers I will still back Pickett and I will give him a chance.

I'm just glad to have a new, promising quarterback. Let him do what works for him.

Yes, but Danny Wuerffe also had Mike Dinka as his head coach in the NFL, so Wuerffe never had a chance to begin with.

Don't care, better than end of career Roethlisberger.

Since when has hand-size mattered to an NFL quarterback?

Troy Aikman's Giant Thumbs: Since when has hand-size mattered to an NFL quarterback?

There is a strong correlation between hand size and success as a QB. The majority of the franchise QBs in the NFL have larger hands. Joe Burrow has the smallest hands of the Pro Bowl caliber QBs at 9 in. Kenny Pickett's hands are only 8.5 inches. Pickett will have the smallest hands of any starting QB in the NFL by a good margin. The NFL ball is also larger than the NCAA ball.

I am not saying Pickett won't have success in the NFL, but a QB with 8.5 in hands is almost like a QB that is 5'8". There have been a few QBs in the 5'10-11" range that have had success, but he is smaller than the smallest successful QB thus far.

Yeah, I wasn't being serious. My username should have been a clue on that.

That list literally shows there is no correlation. The most storied QB of all time has slightly below-average hand size for an NFL QB, and 2 of the 4 best young QBs have well below-average hand sizes for an NFL QB. It might show, however, that there is a minimum hand size, which Pickett is below.
