Small hands aren't the be all and end all of NFL QB's, however both Culpepper and Warner had small hands and both led the NFL in fumbles so it can cause problems.

Culpeppers hands were 9.5 inches, it was that he had somewhat webbed fingers that hurt him.

Also look at the QB you're looking at, Vick, Tebow, Culpepper etc all ran more than your normal QB so they're going to have more fumbles

Warner held onto the ball a long time towards his end of the Rams

I feel like it is an incredibly inconsistent metric and as such has very little value. If a good qb has huge hands, you can point to that as something he uses well, but as many people have alluded to, many great qbs have had small hands. Maybe Kurt Warner would have been better with bigger hands, but thats just nonsense to consider.

Vick's hands have nothing to do with his fumbles just like his hands have nothing to do with his interceptions. He doesn't seem to have any problems gripping the ball as he is capable of throwing a beautiful ball. However, because he has small hands, people can point to that, just like the opposite would hold true of a successful qb with big hands. It really is nonsense.

Jim Druckenmiller's hands were 11 1/4" and he turned out to be Jim Druckenmiller so you never know.
