Idk how Colt McCoy came up but yes, he was a noode-armed checkdown machine whose offensive created a lot of opportunities for YAC and big plays which masked his lack of a deep ball in the high YPA stats
Checking down a quick strike short passing game,. Checking the ball down is throwing it to your back out of the backfield or your TE springing lose after a block after your QB cant/doesnt want to throw to a WR. See Smith, Alex. Do you not know the difference?
What is an 'offensive'?
So defenses just never caught on to the fact that McCoy wasnt going deep? How did Texas do this year with the strong armed, number 1 HS qb in the nation, stepping in for noodle arm? Surely they probably finished much better than they ever did with Colt, right?
1) I know the difference, but either way a short passing game kind of proves my point
2) Sorry about the spelling mistake, and that you had a bad day and decided to lash out on the internet lol
3) I never said McCoy was a bad player, just that he had a weak arm with inflated stats
you say inflated stats because he hit the short passing game and they made something happen? Wouldn't ANY GREAT QB have inflated stats then because they will put the pull on the Receiver IN STRIDE to allow him to pick up YAC so the "inflated stats" can go both ways
Haha, you're right. People are just grasping to anything to avoid admitting being wrong.
F those noodle arm guys, I want a dude with a rocket for an arm like Derek Anderson and Jake Locker and Ryan Leaf.
hahaha, I'm not saying I don't want a QB that can make the 70 yard explosive play down the field but if you have accuracy, big plays CAN and WILL happen. Each Receiver/RB on that field is capable of doing damage with the football in their hands (hence why they are in the NFL playing a skill position) but if your QB is not giving them an opportunity (cough cough ALex cough cough) by hitting them IN STRIDE, you, as a QB, are single handily holding them back. Just my opinion
