    Does Arnaud remind anyone of Jake Christensen?

    There was some talk on HN comparing Arnaud to Christensen, does anyone else notice the similar throwing styles and the lack of touch on the ball, the more I watch Arnaud the more apparent it is.

    Re: Does Arnaud remind anyone of Jake Christensen?

    Not really. Arnaud is a way better leader and is a stud when it comes to running the ball on third and short. Can't really find anything good to say about Jake.

    Well, that's just offensive to AA. I don't care how you think bad he is, comparing him to Jake Christensen is unwarranted..

    P.S. Did you check into HN to find this talk or did your neighbor?

    Big difference is AA is not a D-Bag.

    Re: Does Arnaud remind anyone of Jake Christensen?

    I'd say he's pretty similar. I've drawn the correlation between the two before seeing this thread.

    Not the one that originally made the comparison but I could see some similarities. Read it myself, since I am not the one thats blocked from the site. But anyway good one.

    Arnaud is not white, or left handed, nor does he wear #6. So... no.

    No one was running around saying AA was going to break all the school passing records, be the best QB in school history and win the Heisman.

    Re: Does Arnaud remind anyone of Jake Christensen?

    I think the biggest similarity is that AA tries to throw the ball too damn hard.

    He did it on the last play. He over-throws (throws it too hard) which jacks up all the mechanics which makes it nearly impossible to throw a spiral, which leads to it floating on most occasions.

    He does this a lot...especially in tight situations.

    JC did it on every pass.

    Re: Does Arnaud remind anyone of Jake Christensen?

    My friend and I have had this conversation a couple times. The ball is on the receivers before they even come out of the breaks most of the time. If you don't give a receiver time to see the ball how can they catch it or adjust their route?

    I don't remember anything about Christensen. As a Cyclone fan why would I?
