is absolutely destroying Alex Smith and this trade today. Give him a follow.
Nuance with Alex Smith's motion is he doesn't get extended. Negative motion in windup...at 6'4" releases point is next to head.
Similar to Brady Quinn in that respect. Drops ball to waist...limiting forward motion/release point...hurts ability to manipulate passes.
Reason extension is important is a QB gives the wrist more range of motion. From the wrist manipulate trajectory, speed, release.
