    re Barnett

    On Big 12 Showcase today (I think that is what the show was called) they showed Barnett passing, and clearly not using the threads on the football. His hands are on the football not the threads! He will never be a good percentage passer if he does not change this unbelievable fundamental error. And, I understand his dad is a football coach.

    How about this qb coach, tell him to start using the damn threads.

    And, did you know the college fb is larger than the NFL fb. That's what they said.

    Was it a screen pass? I think its extremely common to not use threads on quick throws such as these. There is no time to find the threads on throws like these.

    I saw it too. They zoomed in on video that clearly shows him throwing without using the laces on his interception and another downfield pass.

    If he threw with laces we'd be 7-0!!

    Re: re Barnett

    You clearly know very little if you think all QB's throw with the laces. Sure most NFL and prostyle offense QB's will. That is because the center snaps them the ball in a manner so that the laces will line up correctly with their fingers. Even some spread quaterbacks who sit in the pocket for a long time (Landry Jones) will do this. With our offense, we run a lot of zone reads and quick passes that do not allow our QB to have time to adjust the ball to his hands.

    Cam Newton sucks though. Seriously though, he's awful this year.

    Re: re Barnett

    All NFL QB's do it too. This isn't pee wee football, the laces are a little trick for small hands. If your hands are so small you need the laces in college, you probably shouldn't be playing QB.

    I keep looking for jimlad, but don't see him.

    EDIT Wow, wouldn't it be awesome if this were the problem? Someone call Mess, tell him to at least give it a try tomorrow. I'll eat a crow, literally, if this is the issue, I will eat a crow.

    I thought Denard Robinson didn't use laces?

    A lot more pictures of tom brady and peyton manning throwing with the laces. I have no idea, I was a lineman, just saying.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
