Herrmann hatte vor Zeiten mal drauf hingewiesen: NFL Films führt seit einiger Zeit ein interessantes Weblog, in der allgemein geschätzte Greg Cosell seine Beobachtungen postet. Cosell hat Zugang zu „All 22“, den Kameraansichten, die die NFL aus fadenscheinigen Gründen nicht offen zugänglich macht. Cosell über…
“Luck was not a special passer based on film study. He is not the same kind of arm talent as Matthew Stafford or Cam Newton.”
“Overall, Luck was not asked to make many tough throws at the intermediate and deeper levels. I did not see those. I will not say he can’t make them, but based on the 5 games I evaluated it’s a projection. In addition, Luck had a tendency to lift his back foot off the ground before releasing the ball. That prevented him from driving through his throws and at times negatively impacted his velocity and accuracy.”
“Surprisingly, in my 5 game breakdown of Luck, he exhibited a tendency to move too quickly, to leave the pocket too early.
“Luck was an economical player who was at his best as a timing and rhythm, short to intermediate passer.”
“He had a very compact and easy delivery with natural velocity. There was a snap to his throws. Many disagree, but in more than 20 years of watching NFL game film, I am a firm believer that arm strength, or put another way, the ability to make tight throws into small windows down the field, is critical.”
“Griffin threw an excellent deep ball, with trajectory, touch and accuracy.”
“He threw effectively out of what we call a ‘muddied” pocket.’ He did not need much functional space to deliver the ball with velocity and distance. Surprisingly, in my 5 game breakdown of Luck, he exhibited a tendency to move too quickly, to leave the pocket too early.”
“The bottom line in my 5 game film evaluation: Griffin is a superior arm talent and natural passer than Luck.”
