When you watch a QB throw a football ... do you ever think that the ball sometimes looks ... heavier than when other QB's throw it?

For me when I see Rodgers or Cutler throw the ball it looks like its weightless at times. When I watch someone like Kyle Orton or Brian Greise it looks like it weighs a ton.


Anyone else think like this or notice or am I just nuts?

Well.....whether you think that or not doesn't matter.......you were nuts BEFORE you thought that anyways.
LOLOLOL!!!
On a serious note......i know what you mean. I think it has alot to do with the "flow" that the QB throws with. A more fluid motion, and it makes the ball "float" more. A rough throwing action produces a different look.

Your point is understandable.

The better mechanics a QB has, the more power he can transfer with less effort. Thus, the look of ease while throwing with velocity. (think freddy couples in golf)



Wanna know the theory of relativity? It's all relative....
