He threw it off his back foot & still had enough arm to get a lot of air under that ball & the ball travels something like 40 yards down the field.
What I do have an issue with, is that the play was designed as a double move & Bridgewater didn't look at any other route. Had he rather stayed in the pocket & took a hit while trying to get the ball to one of the other two routes... I'd have more respect for his toughness & ability to read a defense.
What I don't understand is how guys will drop their shorts & are ready to have Bridgewater's baby after seeing a play like that, but hate on Johnny Manziel who makes that play look effortless.
Scroll back up to that video. there was no time for a double move to develop.
I respect you bro and like a lot of what you say, but having more respect for his toughness & ability to read a defense by taking an unnecessary
big hit/sack is probably the dumbest thing I've ever heard in a QB evaluation.
I think when John Football does those plays are a huge factor in why he is even considered 1st round material by SOME. If John F couldn't do those plays he would have never won a Heisman and he wouldn't even be mentioned on ESPN the volume he is.
If John Football was 6'3" or taller EVERYONE would AT LEAST be talking about and considering him. If John Football was 6'3"+ AND played in a pro style offense I don't doubt for a second this whole Teddy B thread would be about John Football. I know he'd definitely be hard for me not to consider and I've been a Teddy B fan for a long time.
