    Damn, Fromm threw deep more often than Eason? Surprised because Eason had more arm strength.


  2. Who’s been saying we didn’t throw the ball deep? I thought the consensus was we were one-dimensional in the passing game because we threw overwhelmingly to the sideline (both short and long) and abandoned the middle of the field?

    Throwing is different than completing…

    The chart includes 2017 and 2018 as well as 2019, for what it’s worth.

    Is percentage of throws that were deep a good metric here? Fromm attempted 150 fewer passes than Burrow, for instance. In absolute terms I’d be surprised if UGA and Fromm were in the top 5.

    It’s not that we never threw the ball deep. It’s that we never threw the ball over the middle.

    We threw deep plenty of times. A lot of them were still the back shoulder type, with overthrows, under throws, and drops sprinkled in.



    He got popped hard a few times in the ND game, never quite looked the same to me..

    Fromm threw more then a few 40+ yard shots.

    Problem was the receivers were 50+ yards down field.
