Osweiler still needs plenty of work

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (18) watches quarterbacks Brock Osweiler (6) and Adam Weber (2) during ota practice Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at Dove Valley.

Just because John Elway conveniently rid himself of Tim Tebow, doesn't mean he's without a quarterback who has significant mechnical flaws, despite the insistence to the contrary emanating from Dove Valley.

If Brock Osweiler wants to fix his throwing motion, he's still got work to do. As evidence, check out page (or photo, if you will) 38 from this group of daily photographs of the goings on at Dove Valley. 

The position of Osweiler's arm is so low, he's comparable to Philip Rivers.

As Chris Brown points out:

During the motion, if your arm is too low or not far enough forward of the shoulder to be able to achieve the “zero” position then there are a series of adjustments your brain will make automatically to compensate for your poor arm alignment. None are really optimal. The brain “locks” the shoulder to protect itself from the lower angle, which also forces the wrist outward around the elbow (sidearm delivery) to reduce exposure to injury.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
