General time to throw a ball

Let us get one thing straight, a QB should release the ball prior to or at the 3 second mark and most QBs do. I just rewatched the game and Rodgers had that ball out before 3 seconds on most of his completions.

Oldniner added it up and Smith gets quite a few of 2.8 seconds to throw a ball.

If you get MORE than 3 seconds, then you line is dominating. Most QBs get the ball out before 3 seconds hits.

Smith will get better but it's OK to admit that he's slow on his reads.

the thing that's different about this alex and the alex 5 years ago is that you can tell he feels confident not only in his team, but himself. he went deep a bunch of times, he is developing a better pocket presence... i mean, i have to admit although our team really looks like s**t, i think that this is perfect for alex to develop. sucks it's 5 years later, but it's never too late if we can have him become a good QB. (i don't think he'll ever be great)

Did it take you more then 3 seconds to post that? You may be sacked, watch out!!!

I counted a bunch of times and a bunch of times there was only 1.5 seconds before he was getting hit, the ball was out, or he got sacked. There were a few times he got more than that but either you're hurrying your count or I don't know what game you watched. Unless you used a stop watch? and counted the ammount of time he had in the pocket on each play? and you want to post it here on the zone?

He's far better from the shotgun. I watched the game again last night tracking the timing of each play. He didn't have any more time in the shotgun than under center but he read plays better. Plus Raye was calling for deep strikes instead of the stupid 5 yard slants.

One interesting tidbit. Crabtree's 38 yard TD catch came on a 2 second play. Basically from the time the ball was snapped to the time it left Alex's hands was only 2 seconds.

I just don't get why we don't call more of those.

singFRAUD...
lol people who watch the game over again pretending to act like they are watching game film so they can analyze...

thats cute.
I'm not sure which happens first: 3 seconds, or Morgan reaching five yards down the field.

Somebody wake me up when Morgan makes a play.
slow on his reads matched up with a slow ass, telegraphed release = fail.

I hope we call more of those too. Alex really looks much better from the shotgun.
I think Smiths problem is his long slow delivery. The guy looks like he is about to throw a 100 mph fastball the way he winds it way back.

agreed. Which is why he always has balls batted down by DL.
