    yup... definitely Kyler Derangement Syndrome. if you consider this positive, I don't know what to tell you. you're basically saying Kyler's throwing motion will be a problem and he won't get away with it because he's not as tall as Rivers and that's the reason he gets away with it.

    I wanted to know if anyone had any videos or analysis about Kyler's throwing motion, not complain about it. I'm sure there's plenty of stuff about it. But fine. Whatever. Can't ask a question without being a Kyler hater. Got it.

    his arms are too short to analyze his throwing motion.

    It’s as if you tried to come up with a positive to then turn the thread into a “he’s too short” for that positive to really exist bashing of Murray. Seriously man.

    It’s like going up to a woman and saying, “hey, I think you’re pretty. Except for your face. And I don’t like your hair. And you smell. LOOK I SAID SOMETHING NICE!”

    Haskins had 5 balls batted down also...


    But he threw 41% more passes than KM. I don't think his 5 batted balls says anything one way or the other, especially not predicting what that will mean at the NFL level.

    I cant remember where I read it, but most of Kyler's batted passs came in the first 4 weeks or so of the season. He made some tweaks and went like 6 weeks without a batted pass. Hes that coachable and football savvy that he can make changes to his game quickly was the point being made.

    I was blown away by this fact:

    Murray had the highest YPA in the history of college football. EVER. Pretty amazing.

    I mentioned this pre draft and it was roundly ignored by the naysayers. It became "But what will happen when he has them batted down? How will he survive mentally?"

    And what will happen when his receivers aren't 5 yards past the defensive back on every play?

    I have no doubt in Kyler's ability to sling it when the receiver has space. I still haven't seen a ton of throws to contested receivers. Not saying he can't do it, but I haven't seen it.

    That means they are playing tight man, that means Kyler can tuck the ball and rip off huge chunks of yardage.

    Or it means they're covered.

    Please stop with the "Kyler has a magical solution to every problem and is automatically an unstoppable QB" stuff. Kyler, like every other QB who has played the game, is going to have to throw into tight windows. He is going to have periods of time where his guys are both covered and running lanes are closed off. Even everyone's favorite comp, Russell Wilson, experiences this.
