1) they are throwing to guys hey have no chemistry with because they just met a day or two ago. Ig Geno expects the guy to have wheels and puts it out there and overthrows him, it is a mark AGINST him...if the receiver doesn't run a clean route and Geno s throwing to a spot he should be and isn't, that marks against him. Geno can go out there and throw 75 PERFECT passes and half of them can hit the ground because of the receiver and Geno looks bad because of it.
2) most top prospects know that if they make gms and scouts wait till their proday, more will come to watch and that gives the teammates extra exposure. Not only that, but he is then throwing to guys he knows and has chemistry with and knows how they run their routes. That let's him be confident in his throws and really let it rip.
There are other reasons top guys don't throw at the combine, but those are the major ones.
Saying he is a pussy if he opts not to throw at the combine isn't accurate.
Are scouting departments now run by 12 yr old girls?
They're going to give Geno a hell of a lot better analysis than "Caught or missed". Are you telling me that Geno's guys wouldn't have given a script to the scouts or that Andy Reid won't be able to tell the difference between a bad throw and simple bad chemistry?
Gimme a break.
Again, I don't really care about history - I care about what this prospect is doing in this draft. If he doesn't throw, it's because he's worried he'll hurt his draft stock - period.
Given how much of a wildcard this draft class is, that bothers me and it doesn't matter to me how many QBs have chosen not to throw before him.
