I think that if Houston gives him a roster like SF or Seadderal then he can win.

I understand the reply "well that's easier said than done! SF and Seadderal have incredible rosters!" and I agree. But without a world-beater QB (Brady; Manning; Brees; Rodgers) that's the only way to win in the NFL.

Which is harder to come by- a game-changing QB or an incredible roster?
I think that's a question worth discussing.
No, that's not the caliber question that's worth discussing at all. That's the type of question you ask if you're considering going with Keenum or Yates. That is not the question you ask if you're considering taking a QB first overall in the draft. If Bridgewater needs everybody around him to be perfect to win then we should just stick with Matt Schaub at QB, and I don't like that idea one bit.

Fair enough.
If that's Houston's standpoint then I hope they trade the pick.
Bridgewater will probably be good. He'll never be "carry the team to the Promised Land basically by himself" good.

Misdirection.

Seriously, though, are you really asking this question? He's not throwing darts. He's throwing a football with the normal motion everyone uses. And part of that motion involves bringing the ball back and cocking the arm. During that process, the point of the ball can go as far as almost pointing completely in the opposite direction of where the ball is ultimately going to go.

Nobody is as good as that mythological standard.

Welcome to the board. And, yes, that's been posted but np. It's being debated, I think, in the Manziel thread.

Interesting that we're picking up new guys the past few days especially considering last season...

lol, where did you come from with all these wild "opinion facts"? Start that discussion elsewhere. Maybe one day the Texans can draft the next Peyton Manning, his kid's gotta be like 2 or 3 at least by now.

Welcome to the board. A few rules:

1. Be absolute in your stances with no wiggle room
2. Never back off your stance even when proved incorrect
3. From time to time be a jerk to some random person

Do this and you'll fit in great. Great article BTW.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

Why did Teddy have the ball at 90 degrees from his target? Because it looks like he's rolling out.

Why is the nose of the football not pointing at the direction of the target in the Joe Montana and Blake Bortles Photos? Because their throwing hand is coming from behind their head in an overhand throwing motion making it impossible to point the nose of the football where the QB is looking.

Why is Trevor Knight pointing the ball 180 degrees from the target area? I don't know, that is just wrong. He is a Freshman and a QB Coach will likely be making some corrections.

Have I ever thrown a football? Believe it or not I was a high school QB. The football aficionados thought they were either being smart or being funny but in either case they stubbed their toe.

Why do you think that makes a difference? Do you think he's supposed to NOT bring his hand back and **** his arm when he's on a rollout?

Wait, are you trying to analyze the differences in these pictures and justify that Teddy pointing the ball 90 degrees away is wrong but the other guys isn't? I am confused here, what point are you trying to make?



Is that better? He is holding it behind his head too in this picture too.

Throwing motion is different when when running vs being stationary in the pocket.

I just asked a simple question. In this picture his arm is at a 45 degree angle like Montana and Bortles. The previous picture his arm is at 90 degree angle.
