Does he sometimes get rid of the ball a little earlier than he should? Absolutely. However, it isn't this pathological trait of Eli's that you make it seem.
Believe me, I have a background in education. I know how irritating it can be, especially when that lingo seeps its way into academic work.
Lifetime member of the "specific element" and proud of it.
Eli has a quick release and does a good job of getting his body in a good position as not to take the full force of hits. (unless he take a "bleeder" to the face like in preseason) There have been times when he takes a beating but he only does that when he is throwing the ball deep and it usually ends up in a big play. It's funny for a guy who takes criticism for not being "athletic" he sure plays a lot more snaps than those "athletic" guys. /knock wood.
