  • Has Eli perfected the art of throwing

    while shying away from the contact? I'v never quite seen a throwing style off a back foot and turning the body away and have so much success as Eli has had.
    I suspect he had to do this as the Oline regressed over the years.

    Whenever I see that throw (two or three times a game), I think it's going to be picked off.

        Joe Theismann mentioned this last year in one edition of playbook giving praise to Eli not giving defenders a clean look to hit him saying how difficult it was to be accurate under that circumstance. That been said I always cringe when I see Eli do that, imaging Coughlin in the side line looking at the field during games.

                i too saw that clip theisman put together he showed a bucn of elis throws off his back foot bc of the pass rush and eli all of last year put those on a dime.

                i think its bc of his elite arm strength. he doesnt get enough credit for his arm. a good ex. rewatch the GB playoff game and the pass to cruz where cruz runs a go, fakes like he's gonna do a double move, and then cuts back towards the sideline, eli threw that pass 20 some yards on a rope.
                same thing with the SB clutch pass to MM, thrown 40 some yds on a rope...

                some of the best qbs like s.young say that in todays nfl with the level of pass rush, the best qbs have to be able to throw off their back foot, its just something that has to be done. do the qbs want to do it/ of course not, theyd rather step into every pass, but thats a luxury a qb will never get in todays game...eli hs amazing arm strength, and really stepped up his accuracy

                  and i think he is contorting his body at the last possible second where before he'd do it too early and it'd mess up the timing, he's doing it just to try and keep himself healthy, and who can blame him?

                  he is waiting to the absolute last possible second staring down the barrel of a gun (the pass rush) and making the throw, and allowing the motion of the throw carry over into contorting his body, whereas before, he kinda just contorted his body like mid throw motion, it looks like that was something he focused on last offseason

                    and even if this does lead to a few ints, i think its an excellent tradeoff;

                    throw a few more ints while contorting his body to try and stay healthy or not contorting his body and taking even more viscous shots...

                    i'd rather a few more ints and a healthy eli

                      To tell you the truth I don't have the recollection of someone doing it in the past or with that consistency and accuracy. Aside of Eli's underrated arm strenght it shows how much Eli has mastered this offensive scheme and how in sync he is with his offensive weapons .

                        i'd rather him throw off his back foot, have an extra INT and have longevity, rather then have someone like Ben, standing tall in the pocket, getting his clock cleaned every play.

                          It's comparable to Dirk Nowitzki's fade aways that he hits every game. You think, there is no way he's hitting that shot and then it goes in.

                            ...really?

                            Did you not watch the San Fran playoff game? When he has to stay in and take the hit to make the throw, he did it and took an tremendous beating in the process. He took hits all year long behind our o-line and when he had to take the hits to make the plays he did it.

                            When he doesn't have to take the hit, I personally would rather that he didn't.

                            Why exactly do you not want Eli to avoid unnecessary hits?

                            By the way unless I am mistaken (and I am pretty sure I am not) the Wilford play you have a pic of was a defensive offside play. I really don't want the guy to take un-necessary hits on free plays. That's just flat out stupid

                              Bottom line is he hasn't missed a game to go with those 2 Lombardi's.
