Is Mac Jones lack of arm strength a thing? His arm looks dead to me.

He can spend the most hours looking at game film and work on his touch and accuracy all day long.

He can study the playbook in 3 languages.

His arm strength is never going to be anything but average.

JJ Watt has been a monster.  

he would have been in GB if Aaron Rodgers had accepted a restructure this offseason. Was a done deal until little Aaron had to be pouty.

Could have put GB over the top. His own damn fault.

... are you saying that's not a horrendous call?

Its the right call

Watch it again and count the steps after the ball is gone before he hits the QB.

Its there in the video

soft, hard, while saying please and thank you does not matter

Its a moron play from a moron football player costing his team 15

 

It was not a violent hit but it was illegal all the same 100% of the time.

  1. Roughing will be called if, in the Referee’s judgment, a pass rusher clearly should have known that the ball had already left the passer’s hand before contact was made; pass rushers are responsible for being aware of the position of the ball in passing situations; the Referee will use the release of the ball from the passer’s hand as his guideline that the passer is now fully protected; once a pass has been released by a passer, a rushing defender may make direct contact with the passer only up through the rusher’s first step after such release (prior to second step hitting the ground); thereafter the rusher must be making an attempt to avoid contact and must not continue to “drive through” or otherwise forcibly contact the passer; incidental or inadvertent contact by a player who is easing up or being blocked into the passer will not be considered significant.

Which is why he will only be average (like a Chad Pennington type).

Don’t understand the hype with him this far.

He’s a rookie QB I get it, but he doesn’t seem to have any “wow” attributes that make me think this guy is going to be a stud.
