What about the dreaded hand size debate?


Recommended Posts

Justin Fields,  hand size 9 1/8  (9 fumbles in 2019 and down to 2 in 2020)

Trey Lance,  hand size 9 1/8  (4 fumbles in 2019 and 1 in 1 game 2020)

Zack Wilson,  hand size 9 1/2  (4 fumbles in 2019 and 3 in 2020)

Matt Ryan for the last 4 years had (1,9,8 and 4)

Thoughts or just a obsolete measurement?

Just like Drew Brees couldn't play QB in the NFL because he was too short.

Measurable matter, until they don't

 

Edit:autocorrect

 

I'm 100% against a QB in the 1st and think its laughable (unless we trade back into the 20s or something and stockpile picks then let a guy sit like Aaron Rodgers). 

 

But yeah, measureables don't mean **** for QBs. It is nice to have a tall guy with a strong build that can take hits... but Brees sure did fine. 

 

*Russel Wilson also a small guy who is even more mobile than Brees and will likely play until his mid to late 30s.

Anything over 9” is considered ok for QB hands. The bigger the better for ball handling purposes. Yes size matters bigger is better no doubt. Brees Farve P Manning R Wilson many of the great ones has big hands measuring over 10 “

I can palm a standard basketball. 
I am reasonably sure TJ Watt could knock a football out of my hands no matter how hard I held on. At least some of the time. Now account for eyes downfield and moving feet to avoid the sack. 
Conclusion...big hands = big gloves.

Mahommes - 9 1/4

Brady 9.38 

Josh Allen  10 1/8 "

Joe Burrows 9"

Tua Tagovailoa  10"

Matthew Stafford 10"

Carson Wentz 10"

Gardner Minshew 10.13"

Tim Tebow 10.13"

Chad Pennington 10.25"

Drew Brees 10.25"

Russell Wilson 10.25"

Mark Sanchez 10.5"

Nick Foles 10.63"

Ryan Leaf 10.5"

Matt Leinart 10.13"

Paxton Lynch 10.25"

Matt Ryan 9.5"

 

I don't think it matters that much.   If they can grip the ball and throw it accurately, the rest will fall into place.

Let’s go even further back...several players for the Patriots, apparently were not happy about women being allowed in the locker room so they....

well, they did it intentionally though, and nothing was made out like any of them were toting a 'weapon' around that might have been used in a discussion about hand size

;)
