Short, safe throws that reduce the number of third and long.
Catch them off-guard here and there if they try to play close to the vest.
Agree and prefer an accurate passer rather a cannon arm; both but would be awesome but those are rare. Interesting but means nothing, Schaub increased his average per pass from college to pro. If Case does the same, watch out. 2010 & 2011 he avg apprx 9.5.
