He also didn't have someone knocking him down 1.5 seconds after the snap.
very true on both accounts above....my question is I've never seen Cody make a pass like that or even have a play called to throw one in the corner of the endzone like that, so the coaching staff has to believe Matt has the arm to make those kind of plays right??
On that play, no. But on a play just before, he evaded the rush and ran for 15 or so yards. That's something Cody simply can't do. Cody gets sacked there.
Also, his throws are thrown faster, gets to receiver faster, so when a receiver has got a defender beat, he wont throws ducks that float in the air and allow the defender to catch up and make a play.
With MB, if gets the ball to the reciever, its on the receiver to make the catch, and get some yards after the catch something that Cody's passes rarely allows unless the receiver is totally open. And even then he misfires half the time long or short.
Exactly what my response was going to be until I read that.. so :dito:
In fairness to Cody, both TD throws in the WVU game were every bit as pretty as MB's toss to P-Will.
This observation takes nothing away from Ballenger's potential as a tall dual-threat QB.
My thought exactly.
I'm just saying, Cody hasn't done anything to "outright" win the job this year. Last year it was a no-brainer. Other than Cody last year was Nick Nelson (enough said). You can have the greatest practice in the world, but the games are what counts. Unlike last year, you can't tell me that the back up doesn't have potential ability for potential success because we have now seen it. The kid deserves a shot to take C-Hawk's job not only in practice, but come game time. I'm done with the C-Hawk vs. MB threads (until next week) :lol:
