Here’s a paragraph I wasn’t expecting to read in Seth Emerson’s Mailbag ($$), about Stetson Bennett’s arm strength:
For what it’s worth, one person I trust downplayed any concerns: Bennett has huge hands (as others have pointed out), he’s been clocked high on the radar gun, and his performance on third downs and downfield throws across the middle speaks for itself. The underthrown balls may have just been a case of throwing off the wrong foot while rushed. Bennett has a better arm than Jake Fromm, this person told me, and this was the same Fromm who uncorked that 80-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman in the national championship, which traveled about 60 yards in the air. [Emphasis added.]
Let’s hope Alabama’s defense isn’t expecting that, either.
