    I have probably watched 20 CFB games so far this season. One of the things that I notice is that many or perhaps most QBs have a tremendous presence especially when they get a snap in the shotgun. The better ones I have watched get the snap and just stand there going through their progressions and then bam the ball is gone...maybe 2 or 3 seconds. (In the cases of CSU and Toledo QBs it was like 6 alligator) When I watch the Buffs it seems that Cody is running for his life even if there is no apparent (rush) threat. I guess my question is has he been beaten up so bad over the last couple of seasons that he is conditioned to just bail out or is the o-line simply not giving him the time he needs. What if Cody took the snap, just stood there, found an open receiver and threw the ball? Does he have to run around to find a lane? I am a bit puzzled by this.

    Well, unfortunately, yes. You see, he has to scramble out of the pocket to be able to see over the heads of the o-line.

    How many times have you seen Cody quickly read the Blitz and deliver the ball to place were the blitz left the other team vulnerable?


    How many times does he make it all the way through his progressions and dump the ball to the running back?

    How many times has he thrown into coverage when a man was wide open?

    How many times has he had a wide open pass and not had the arm strength to get it there before the defense recovered?

    Personally between the QB, O-line and WR’s, I would worry about the O-line last.

    When Cody does have time, he seems to think it's something he can hold on to. To him time is a precious commodity, as a result, he will hold on to the ball and extra 3-5 steps and then throw the ball way late to a receiver.
