I also see him constantly getting the ball away under immediate and intense pressure and another thing I noticed is that almost every intermediate or long throw he's having to hit guys who are blanketed.I honestly don't see WR's getting even partially,never mind wide,open.Sure there's the odd throw that's a bad miss but again how much is that guys not being where they should be on routes?When he misses on long outside throws he at least seems to put the ball where only his guy can get it.He must've had some shockers that I haven't seen admittedly but I can totally see why people fall in love with him as a passer.
Not saying he's a top ten pick but I just like what I see.I guess scouts get paid to work these things out and time will tell but I wonder just how much his supporting cast had to do with some of his issues.And far from seeing an inaccurate QB I actually think that out of this class,accuracy is not nearly as bad as his 58.5% completion percentage indicates.
I should really go back and look at some of Sanchez in college because I'm pretty sure his numbers indicated he was an accurate QB but as we all now know reading and reacting and the short game are just not there but I don't remember hat being obvious at the time.
In short I think Glennon is better than his numbers maybe indicate.
Contrast with Nassib and to a lesser extent Tyler Bray.There are a lot of absolutely wild throws in there with those guys.
This is generally how I feel about Glennon.
Accuracy is not an issue when he has his feet set under him. He's constantly throwing to small windows and hitting receivers in stride..
It's when he tries to make a play that is not there or reverts to bad habits, throwing off his back feet/before he has his feet set that his accuracy is more erratic. This is not the same mechanical/release issues that Sanchez has. Even when Sanchez gets protection, has his feet under him, the ball sails and his accuracy is erratic.
Glennon's shortcomings can be fixed, and if so he's got the raw ability to be a franchise Qb. I've never felt that way about Sanchez.
