    Re: Thoughts??? Preseason Game 2

    In reality, there are very few (almost none) QBs that consistently hit open deep WRs in stride. Most of them over throw them and waste the play completely, but the good QBs usually err on the side of caution and underthrow; to at least give the WR a chance to make a play

    This is PRECISELY why Wallace is underthrown so often. Wallace is a freak. The next time Wallace is "overthrown" on a deep route will be the first.

    You must "try" to hit Wallace in stride at the least. He will STILL need to slow down because his speed is so strange.

    The idea of throwing short allowing the receiver to make a play has to go because Wallace will be too far upfield. Leftwich made that mistake in the first preseason game too.

    My guess is that having underthrown Wallace the previous week, Leftwich deliberately threw the ball "uncomfortably" far on that successful bomb.

    I think it is hard to "trust" Wallace's speed and that a good throw to him will "feel" overthrown to an experienced QB.

    Once that mental adjustment is made by Ben, the full value of the "Wallace Weapon" will be realized.

    I disagree.. an overthrown pass isn't a wasted play IMO. Ben isn't underthrowing Wallace out of caution.. it's because he releases it late.

    Wallace is 5 yards past the DB half the time so it makes no sense to underthrow him. QB's underthrow WR's when they are draped in coverage because it allows the WR a chance to "stop short"

    I have never seen a good QB deliberately underthrow a WR who has 5 yards on the DB.

    Great example to show how under throwing a wide open receiver is not a technique to use but can result in missing out on an EASY 7.
