From a former QB viewpoint, is he missing reads? is he holding the ball too long?
I was commenting on his throws. He doesn't get enough protection and I also think he is too short and they aren't moving the pocket to give him lanes. And there is little threat of a run game so play action isn't working.
Jordan Webb is our best option this year, we have to support him.
Until this post, this thread consisted of only retarded people.
I can vouch for the fact that Rugged isn't a person.
It's either how he grips the ball or the fact that, counting him, they have exactly 0 difference makers.
Isn't David Ash the guy that Wood was tied with before he transferred? Maybe there's hope yet!
Im guessing it isnt his grip, he probably has small mits. There really isnt a wrong answer on how u grip the rock, do what youve always done. The short thing is crap, just find a lane. Doug Flutie was short as hell and did fine for himself, had huge hands for a little dude. Youd be surprised how little guys with big hands excell at what they do. John Stockton has big hands and a pg is like a qb, he could handle the rock id say.
Did I read that right?
Ex QB and coach here = His footwork is sh*t and he is slow in his reads/decision making. Add in the fact his arm strength is marginal and there you go.
I miss the days where CU had a QB that actually scared opposing DC's.....
That's what I was seeing too...way too slow in his reads never seemed to go with the first option even if it was there...almost like he was expecting something better and then you throw in our line and it's a disaster. I have to say that's one thing about when Hirshman was in, though he didn't throw a ton, when he dropped back he saw something and let it fly. It would be interesting to see what he could do but really we just need a quarterback that will get the ball out of his hands with confidence.
I agree. There was one pass in particular where the line actually blocked. STAY IN THE FREAKING POCKET! He scrambled then ran for a gain of one. If our receivers can't open if they have six seconds without any pressure we have some issues. Also my buddy and I in the student section (we both played high school football, but lets be honest these guys have much better knowledge) could pick which receiver he was going to throw to and if he wasn't open he panicked.
Webb holds onto the ball too damn long....he is not as athletic as Tyler Hansen...he has 0 touch and could not hit a guy on a fly route no matter how much time he had to throw....BUT he is the best we have
If anyone wants to look at 1 spot and try to figure out why we have sucked for as long as we have it's because our QB play has been DEAD LAST in our conference pretty much every year....will never succeed with marginal talent at the most important position
No Philly, said mits not nuts dick. Hes a spread qb, they read half the field most of the time. Progressions are pretty new to him.
I was hoping an experienced QB was a good thing, apparently Fat Charlie was right. CU has sunk so low we are grabbing rejects and hoping they are better than the guys our vaunted staff has recruited/"coached up".
