    His balls this past Saturday were wobbly and he was throwing high and wide. Do we have a QB coach? What does this coach actually do during the game to work with Slovis?

    Forget the spirals. I want to know why he's missing a shit ton of wide open WR's.
    His ball is always up. Which tends to be footwork issues.

    His deep ball is uglier than hell. That never happened last year.
    I can understand hurrying throws due to DL in your face, but he looks very bad.

    It was Claydo's Astroglide that got onto the balls.

    I think all of that has to do with the way the ball is coming out of his hand. Those deep balls are fluttering and not getting the distance or trajectory he wants on them. The throws he's missing by a ton are coming out weird and floating on him, way over the heads of his receivers.

    Last year his throws were like lasers. This year it looks like a paper airplane coming out of his hand. Something is not right and ClayDoh has some 'splaining' to do.

    You talking about Aaron Rodgers back in 2005? Completed something like 23 straight but then went 0-3 with Cal in Red Zone to lose the game to PC's team that won 33 straight (including the Bush Push game at ND) until Vince Young did them in in the Rose Bowl.

    Seems like pass rush pressure had KS throwing a lot off the back foot - would be nice if he could step up into a passing pocket and step into his throws. A little bit of a running attack would sure help to keep the pass rushers a bit more honest.

    Or how about a designed rollout for Kedon once in a while so our offense isnt so predictable. Even with the soft zone coverage LBers are only a few steps from making a play on the ball, they can easily see if its a pass or run play and easily can come crashing down- OC GH really needs to keep their eyes guessing.

    We both see the issues. What’s causing them is the issue.

    He looks like a different QB. He has made some un real throws that have us at 2-0 , but he looks like
    an injured QB.

    Hope we get some answers soon. Because our eyes don’t lie.

    Helton said on Tuesday that Slovis was throwing the ball perfectly on Monday. If that's the case, no reason we should see anything but what we're used to from Slovis on Saturday.
