Driskel takes too much time to throw it

    I agree with this assessment. The flats passes seem to take forever to get released, with the slight hitch and cock before release.

    With SEC corners, we are vulnerable to pic six in these circumstances (flat pass or short upfield and sideline (see, Louisville, 1st play), with the slow release.

    But he - and the receivers - continue to improve.

    I see the comparisons between JD and JFF. Driskel is still is a work in progress and Manzeil for all his talent is a punk!!!! Like to see JFF dis CWM like he did Sumlin.

    This is far more noticeable on TV, where perspective is skewed. Watch him throw those passes in real life, different story.

    I think people also forget those are essentially 15-20 yard passes.

    So when draft time rolls around is JD going to get the Tebow treatment about his throwing motion?

    Yes his windup is very similar to Leftwich's. Slightly more compact, but a windup nevertheless. Tebow's and Brantley's were weird in the sense that they dipped the ball below their hip a good amount in their throws.

    Put the stopwatch on the timing of JD's release. NFL guys throw it quickly and accurately. Perhaps he will improve enough to play in the pros. Tebow did not.

    Not a game from which I would have posted a negative critique of the QB play. Looked better than last year. Except for the first fumble, thought he played well.

    Maybe some of you need to watch a big 12 game? Running the ball is how you win games....not throwing it. Run the ball and stop the run = win.

    No he didn't take too long to throw the ball. He showed great poise and accuracy. Whoever called the plays hamstrung Driskel, they should have let him pass more. He was in rhythm, was accurate and threw nice darts that were dropped by WRs. I am not worried by Driskel. He is no Bridgewater, but he is good enough to take us to the promised land.

    Slow release is different than taking too long to throw the ball.

    As was said earlier, Jeff ran through his progressions very well, and made intelligent passing decisions. That's what matters the most.

    A quicker release would be nice, but it is what it is. He does pass with good velocity.

    ok- I'll put my two cents in-

    Jeff did just fine in the game-
    He completed almost all of the passing plays we ran.
    He's not Brett Farve , but he has served us well and
    will continue to do so.
    I feel like we can't judge his abilities until he is really rushed
    hard and then throws passes.
    We do need the slant -- and a deep ball -hmmm
    Who's gonna catch it?

    You know McCarron had 3000 yards and 30 TDs last year right?

    The only thing that bothered me was he seemed not even to sense the impending doom with the two fumbles.

    Jeff will pass for over 250 yards and throw for atleast 2 touchdowns against Miami.

    I think Andre Ware exaggerated that point unnecessarily on the telecast. I can see it maybe on the strongside corner blitz, but not on the blindside sack. Humphries got surprisingly whipped and the end was there pretty quickly. Heck, there is a reason they call it a blindside.

    Koehne was taken out in the 3rd Qtr to give him a break so that he could rotate in the center position to get some live reps since he is the backup center. When that group did not score Koehne went back in at RG. He got a few snaps on the last drive.
