If he reaches 1000+ and 14 TDs, setting the NFL and franchise records.. well.. Krizay, who I'm sure already realizes by now how worth it it was to make the Vernon pick over any other player at that spot, will be able to fully accept that fact.
"It's not about the numbers"
Were you the guy in the other thread that said accuracy can't be taught?
I stand by the accuracy comment.
Your prerogative, but it is a totally ignorant position to try and defend. Too many examples of guys getting better at it for it to hold water. If there is something I am missing about your point of view, please explain.
I support krizay to an extent. It has a ceiling similar to top speed. Alex will NEVER be as accurate as Breese or Montana no different than Elway was never able to completely be accurate. A QB would need to change his throwing motion in order to get that elite level of accuracy and we all know that's the last thing you want to do at this stage.
The facts say otherwise.
What you see is players making better decisions or having a better connection with the receivers. You don't see improved accuracy per se. You see better decision making.
If you make better decisions and throw it to a more open receiver or just take the safe throw. Your inaccuracies look minor compared to trying to fit a ball in to a tightly covered Receiver while still throwing inaccurate.
If accuracy could be taught there wouldn't be so much bad QB play in the NFL.
So how do really know if 'said qb' was ever 'inaccurate' then? One could just chalk it up to bad decisions and poor connections with recievers.
Point is it's a neverending debate. Fans can never really know without knowledge of specific plays if the QB is inaccurate or the reciever f'd up his route, unless it's blatently obvious ala Brady Quinn throwing a 'go' route 10 yards out of bounds.
If a reciever made his break a half step early and the QB's release timing is perfect, the ball would end up behind the reciever and every armchair QB is saying that the QB has no accuracy. It can also work both ways. Without intimate knowledge of the QB timing and reciever breaks on any particular play one cannot objectively assess whether the ball has been thrown accurately.
Now if you're talking about broken plays, or short yardage pass plays, then that's a different story, but even still it's hard from our standpoint to judge accuracy then either. That's for a QB coach with knowledge of a playbook to judge, not fans watching on TV or in stands during games.
