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

    • It's unlikely that this happens.   However, if it did, you'd have to be nuts not to want him back on your team. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.  Some people are upset, sure. But you'd pass on a top 5 QB because of emotional entanglements? Insanity.
    • I’ve been in this boat for a couple months now. Even if we start a season I don’t see any way we end it, so it’s hard for me to put any kind of stock into players opting out one way or another.

    • That is how I became a Cub fan as well. I got cable tv in 1984 and the Cubs were always on WGN with Harry calling games and I got addicted. The 1984 team was great too (fun year) and should've been in the WS but blew a 2-0 nothing lead in the NLCS. I loved Ryne Sandberg and Rick Sutcliffe. In 1987 the Cubs were mediocre but Andre Dawson won NL MVP and once again the Cubs were fun to watch. I just stayed a fan since then even through the lean years and there have been many. Finally in 2015 the Cubs became a powerhouse and have been since then winning a WS in 2016. Off year last year but 84-78 was still a winning season. So far this season, the Cubs look great again.
    • Here is where I sit. Which is a safer situation to be in. A controlled environment that is constantly testing and taking measures to limit contact, sanitize, and limit  the spread of the disease and because you are being tested so often could likely notify you that you caught it sooner and help protect you from spreading it to your family and allow you quicker treatment all the while making millions of dollars well i think that would be a better option. Staying at home isn’t exactly safe...and I’d be surprised these guys aren’t at more risk by opting out then opting in. That said it’s a free country and if they are worried about their health that is respectable....I mean sure they play the most violent and harmful sport/activity that one could so obviously worrying about their health goes so far but it’s their right to choose. Just know you while you are sitting someone is taking your job and that money you pass up there is no other job after football that you can make up that money in.
