    I think he had been playing injured the whole season. I know he suffered a shoulder injury about a week before the CSU game... and it appears that it drastically affected his arm strength. That floater he threw for a pick 6 just confirmed it to me.

    He has taken a big step back this year in performance, possibly because of playing injured

    It's my conspiracy theory, that Cody hasn't been 100% healthy this year... His arm strength looks noticeably worse this year that's for sure (not that is was every strong to begin with)

    If true (and I realize you aren't necessarily saying it is true), that would just add more fuel to the nepotism fire. Every other player who gets 'dinged up' sits.

    If he is having arm problems, that's 2 years in a row. And it would be 100% attributable to the fact that he's not a D1 athlete and he has to overthrow every pass in order to be adequate.

    I certainly wouldn't be shocked if this was the case, but who knows?

    To me, he has looked pretty similar this year and last year.

    Would not surprise me. That throw in Austin had more to do with horrible mechanics than anything though.

    I'm no doctor, but a weak arm, slow legs, and shortness are not injuries. Genetics, maybe, but injuries? No.

    I prefer to think that lightning dtrik the Hawkins house one night, transplanting Dan's brain into Cody's body and vice versa.

    Cody... well... he really doesn't change much... and Dan gets a brain that knows nothing about football above a High School level. So... I guess he doesn't change either....

    If I didn't make a similar post before, I was definitely thinking it. No one will argue that cody has a rocket arm, but his passes this year definitely look weaker. He sat out the last scrimmage because of it.

    Looks like same old Cody to me. He's never had a strong arm and has always floated deep balls/passes to the sideline.

    Definitely not defending CHawk here and quite ecstatic to see TH get his chance, but slider may have a point, no matter how much conspiracy it is.

    Base my observation on this - I was at the spring game this year and have to admit, at the time, I thought Chawk looked better than TH. Based on what? His throws had more "zip" than previous years and footwork was better. Cody IMHO (and not much I know) did look better than TH.

    Fast forward to fall - living in ATX, didn't see any fall practices (before they were closed off...:rolleyes:) but went to see CSU game. CH was a totally different QB than in the spring (as I'm sure everyone remembers.) Caught up in the excitement of the season opener, I had completely forgotten that he had been injured the week before...

    My point: Don't slam slider too bad, he may be on to something, but at the same time I couldn't believe TH didn't get snaps vs. CSU and now, he is by far the most viable (AND BEST) option.

    STICK WITH HIM HAWK!

    Going deep...

    I know a QB that played injured the entire season too....fractured ribs. He was shot up before the game and at half time.

    He had shoulder "rooter" surgery in the offseason.

    Hey, everybody. Gateway knew a QB that played injured.




    Injury could be part of it. I don't know. But, Cody's passes seem to be lacking some zip this year. Not that he had a strong arm before. He is defenately lacking something though.

    So CH comes back for a glorious fifth year starting next year when he's healthy?

    No, Hawk will get Cody a mysterious medical redshirt for this year and we have Cody under center for the next TWO years!!!

    Now that's the conspiracy theory that will make everyones head explode!!!:lol:
