    Jantz looks (to me) like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    Granted it is only one video, but in one of the QB videos on Cyclones.com he clearly throws inaccurate passes on 3-4 occasions and that is with no pressure whatsoever.

    No doubt I am reading too much into it, but I was concerned about his completion percentage in JC when I saw his stats. It was lower than Arnaud's completion percentage. Watching the video and seeing him overthrow some receivers did not give me the warm fuzzy.

    I'm sure it's nothing, but just a first observation given his past statistics and a first glance at him in a 2 min practice video.

    Hoping for the best!

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    He's training his throws with new receivers on new plays, no biggie. Come game time, and hes still doing it, then we have a problem.

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    Like I said, just an observation. I know I have the cart WAYYYYY ahead of the horse.

    Just wondering if anyone else had the same thoughts after watching the vids.

    Whoa, the very first day of Spring practice, and someone wants to label a brand new quarterback as "inaccurate"??! Brilliant!

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    Not at all what i saw... he has by far the strongest arm, and has great velocity... receivers will get used to it. they dropped a few from him that hit them in the hands. to me he looked by far the best thrower in the group. we shall see. no way to tell until full contact starts, and games.

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    Maybe he throws better with his other arm. Dual cannons.

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    Of the QB's on the vid, clearly Jantz looked like he had the best arm, footwork and accuracy. Of course, its a very brief vid so it means very little at this point.

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    I'm not saying I did or didn't have a similar opinion, but sorry isuno1fan, probably should shown a little restraint before starting this thread. You know its too early. But, you couldn't resist, could you? :)

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    Yeah... I didn't see this at all. He threw a couple really nice deep balls (better than I've seen out of a Cyclone QB in awhile). I saw one wild throw out of Jantz, but that's not enough to get nervous, IMO.

    If he wets the bed with the lights on, then I'll worry/assume he won't amount to much.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Jantz looks like he might struggle a bit with accuracy

    Again...I qualified my opinion by indicating it is too early, but it's the first thing that popped in my head. When I looked at his JC stats, they were tremendous except for his completion percentage. That raised a very small red flag with me wondering how that would translate to the B12.

    The first and only few shots of him I saw, I saw a strong arm, but I also saw him clearly float a few passes. Sounds alot like someone that just graduated.

    Again...just an observation and a fleeting thought. Nothing more than that.

    But you said he was the worst quarterback in the B12 in 5 years. I saw it.

    I always supported Arnaud if that is what you are referring to. I knew there weren't any better choices.

    Also...edited the thread title.
