Osweiler's Passing Motion

Recommended Posts

Is it because he's so tall his pass motion looks odd? I can't quite place what looks strange (at least to me). It almost looks like he's pushing the ball out, not stretching his arm out (overhead) as much as other QBs? I don't know. Does it look strange to anyone else?

Peyton has always had a few wobbly passes. Everyone always comments about that.

The thread was about Osweiler..

 

He throws a little like Phillip Rivers....He needs to throw over the top more so defenders cant tip his tosses..

Use his height like Joe Flacco does

The most ridiculous one was the one he threw off his back foot at about 45 degrees up and Sanders somehow came up with it.  It looked more like a punt than a pass.

I believe it's his height. I have also thought his throws appear awkward at times, but he's really doing well so far.

 

There are some obvious disadvantages to being that tall.   It seems his face will be easier to read by defenses, and I've also heard there is more of a risk of injuries. :dunno:

His passing motion is like this because of his height. If he threw in a normal motion, his passes would go over a lot of WR's as the release point for his passes is a bit higher than most QB's.

Tall Qbs typically have very long throwing motions (because they have long arms). He has a long wind up. He also doesn't throw over the top like Peyton or some others do. By throwing over the top you do lose some velocity but in return you gain height (resulting in less tipped passes), the motion is easier to repeat and typically more accurate, and it is said to cause less wear and tear on the arm. As tall as Brock is you would think he wouldn't get as many balls tipped but he drops down on his throwing motion so he really gives up the height advantage. The other thing that was a good point that Gruden brought up the other night is that safeties and linebackers can read his eyes very easily...he will need to learn to look them off or he will struggle to get the ball into tight windows.

     He's an interesting guy..obviously highly intelligent..

..but every single team passed on him in the draft...probably because he spent so much time in basketball

 

..and maybe due to that throwing motion we're talking about

    • The Colts have had their fair share of injuries the past few seasons.   Many of these players were either expected to have good/great years, or contribute much more than they did, because of their season being cut short. If there was a single player on the roster right now, whom has had injuries in the past 3 seasons, that you could put imaginary 'bubble wrap' around to guarantee they don't get injured this season, who would it be?   Mine = Kemoko Turay. There are many players i'd want to have a healthy season, Hilton/Campbell/Hooker/ect. But to me, I truly believe if Turay had not had that season ending injury last year, he could have seriously broken out. I am praying for a healthy season for him, because having him on all the passing downs for the season with the rest of the talent we have on the front 7, I think he could have a massive season. He was leading the NFL last season in QB pressures per snap, before he was hurt. Not to mention that he was held so many times, and it was not called.  I mean blatant holding.  Because he is a real issue for O-linemen.  Just so fast, with great bend, and his hand/arm work is stellar since he's been working with Mathis. A full healthy season, I could easily see him getting 10+ sacks.
    • they cant just go from waiver claim to practice squad on another team, he would have to be on their roster a while before they can do that.
    • It will be interesting to see how Watson does without Hopkins. If they won the division again that would show me a lot. Losing Hopkins is a huge blow.
    • That's fair. Watson is mostly due to age, but I think he's finally good enough to lead them to the playoffs. However, they will decline soon with some contracts running out. I see Luck as 32 in football years because I believe he'd be rusty for a year. Just a guess though. I would take Watson too because I feel he's non injury-prone, and that's good for a long-term answer at QB. I would take Luck back in a heartbeat though as long as we didn't have to pay him anything if he retired again.
