Funky sidearm delivery.

Very quick release, with a lot of power, though.

his release and delivery is funky but the ball comes out quick. you clean up the mechanics and get his release point up instead of side armed and he'll be near impossible to bat down at the LOS.

Bingo...it is almost a shot put look like rivers, but he seems to have a longer follow through. His release is quick and he can put some zip on it. The guy really can make every throw on the field, from the video I have seen. Very excited to hopefully watch him hold a clip board for the next four plus years, while cheering on manning.

I seem to remember us kicking someone in the ass on their way out the door for bad mechanics. Just another reason I hate this wasted pick.

way too early to call it a wasted pick. it doesn't help us now, but if in 3 years Manning gets another ring and decides he is done, or injury happens and forces him out, we have a groomed guy who could potentially step in and kick some ass after learning from Elway and Manning for a few seasons. that is better training for a young QB than any other young QB could ever hope to receive. learning from a guy who was the best during his time and remains one of the best to play the game and from one of the most intelligent best prepared and quite possibly best QB ever.

His throwing motion has changed quite a bit since the end of last season. If you were at his pro day, granted this is without any rush etc, he does not sidearm any more. He worked with Mazzone to bring his realease point up and it is no longer a sidearm. BTW if you have watched the highlight tape, notice how almost every other ball is thrown to number 8 Gerrell Robinson. I am almost more happy to have signed GRob then drafted Brock just because I really think GRob will be a key contributor sooner rather than later.

since when has Mazzone been the QB guru he has been made out to be this offseason? it seems like every time someone brings up a story about a QB working on his mechanics, Mazzone is mentioned as the coach teaching the player.

meh, as long as his delivery is quick, a quick release, that is key. Couple that with good footwork and he's got the potential to deliver the ball with authority. If he develops a somewhat high release it will be better for him but it's not that big of a deal because he does not really side arm his throws, he's kind of a tweener.

He's worked on mechanical issues with Rivers in the past.

It's an over-arm, but it's such a slow delivery.

BUT a slow delivery isn't as big a problem with your dan near 6'8"

Long limbs mean longer throwing motion. Maybe that's why he went side arm throwing. Cuts the time down and is much quicker

no, those were horrible mechanics that the aforementioned someone didn't clean up nor fix and kept referencing his collegiate days instead of adjusting to the pros. the motion wasn't the main issue, it was the wind up, Osweiler's issue is the arm angle. he still gets the ball out quick.

ASU doesn't throw into the flat enough. They should probably talk to the coach about that.

Also, here are a few of his games, including what was one of his rougher performances (Boise St).











Enjoy.

#4 is Aaron Phlugrad. He signed with the Eagles. His dad was the HC of Montana before he just got fired.

Wow, in that game vs Boise State did he throw a single good ball?

Well, one that wasn't to the flat to his RB?

BTW Mazzone was the OC at ASU last year and that is why Brock trains with him. Brock loves Mazzone and thinks he is the best QB coach in the nation.
