For fun yesterday, I took out my iphone and used the stop-clock tool on the alarm clock app. I took measurements from snap/hike to release
of various QB's.
Jags & Miami: Blaine Gabbert:
2.6 to 2.9 secs just to hit a primary WR. If he went over 3 seconds, he was sacked every time. Tanneyhill:
2.3 to 2.7 to hit a primary. If he went over 3.0 seconds, he was also sacked or he was so rushed, he threw a horrible ball incomplete.
Saints-Raiders Drew Brees:
1.6 seconds to hit a primary. 1.9 seconds to hit a secondary target. Flynn:
2.6 to 2.8 to hit a primary. Griffin:
2.0 to 2.3 to hit a primary. Wallace:
One time took him 5.06 to release the ball and it was still incomplete. General Rule:
You'll probably be successful on a play if you can find a target around two seconds or less. If you are indecisive for 3 or more seconds, you will most likely get sacked or frick up the play, unless you are Drew Brees.
