I’ll say this for Hutson Mason – he sure is clearheaded about what he brings to the table and what it’ll take for him to succeed this season.
“I already knew,” he said. I don’t blow myself up to be any more than I am. I know I don’t have a Matthew Stafford arm, I know that I wasn’t blessed with that just absolute God-given ability. But I have confidence in myself, and I know how this offense is going to run, and I feel it’s more about the mental side for me than it is just having this freakish athletic skill set.
“Do I have the strongest arm, no? But I believe I’m very accurate and I believe that I have great timing and I’m kind of building that chemistry (with my receivers). And knowing where I’m gonna go with the ball before the ball is snapped, I think that’s more important than how hard you can throw it.”
It helps that he’s got a boatload of skill position talent around him and a coordinator who has some idea how to deploy it. But, yeah, it’s a huge summer for him to get on the same page with his targets.
