New Hope Eagle Posted January 20, 2012 Share Posted January 20, 2012 There is a great deal of issues on these boards about Matt Ryan and his accuracy and arm strength and I have a few simple observations.1. Most of his throws are to curl routes or stop routes where most of the time he is throwing to a target either barely moving or not moving at all.Then we expect him to hit the deep routes with a target that is moving very quickly andwith a very small window.2. He also has a great deal of sideline routes but with the target moving back toward the LOS or parallel to the sideline. A somewhat larger target and a larger window but not moving as fast. Keep in mind these routes are also much further from him than a slant which we never run. Maybe his arm is worn out throwing that many passes that far all week. 3. As I said in number 1, the deep routes pose probelms when they are porbably notpracticed very much but I think his release point is what is off, something a competent OC should be able to correct. Hs relase is too early thus throwing the ball with a higher trajectory and creating a throw with less velocity and failing to connect. Of course, he has overthrown several deep balls so maybe the targets need to run better routes.Just my observations mind you as I coach youth football and have worked with manyyoung QB's and to me, it is all about the mechanics and preparation.
