Exactly right. He has more of a "timing" arm than a strong one, ala Colt McCoy. Remember watching Colt play for Cle? He never even attempts passes down the field and that makes him easy to defend when you don't have to really defend the entire field.
Barkley didnt attempt passes down the field....really? Wow..I'm not even going to go there. You obviously never really saw much of Matt Barkley play.
