Mac Jones runs a 4.86 40


Recommended Posts

People do not get how freakishly fast these athletes are.  I played TE in college and ran a 4.8 (in 1923-5--during the Calvin Coolidge administration) and that was fast.  Now a pocket passing QB with little "athleticism" is running a 4.86. 

Must be the steroids in the Food Lion Chicken.

How often does a QB sprint in a football game?  How often does anyone really sprint?  WRs maybe?  That is about it.

Can you elaborate how bad it was? Was the ball to wobbly? The delivery? I'm just checking. 

His mechanics are fine. He just doesn’t have the oomph needed for those to be on the money. Both of these throws had the WR had to slow up or wait for the ball instead of being able to continue to run your route full speed and take off once you have it. 
 

You can watch these clips over and over and the only negative part of these plays is the throw. Mac Jones doesn’t lead either receiver. And I think it’s just a physical limitation with him.

Rating arm strength on a 1-10 scale with 5 being average, Mac Jones is like a 6.2.

Slightly above average but nothing to write home about.

I can’t get over the fact that he looks pudgy and out of shape. It not the end all be all, but it really bothers me.

and spare me the Brady comparisons, he’s a one in a million player

See?  I hope we have dispelled that myth.
