Skeptical on his arm talent? Brennan will make Ryan Clark look like a fool
I can get accuracy, pocket presence, and intangibles being question marks until proven. But arm talent? That goes against everything I've ever seen, heard, or read about Brennan. Dude has a cannon. Ryan Clark, WTF? You're overruled.

Ryan Clark was the only one who said that the offense was going to have to carry the defense before last year started. EVERYONE said the opposite going into last year.

Ryan Clark is the only one who said it. Makes me wonder.

Without question Brennan’s arm is better than average. Its not Jamarcus Russell, but is stronger than Joe Burrow for example (not a dig at Burrow AT ALL).

I’ll say one thing about Ryan‘s takes - they are always genuine and honest. He was praising the steps he saw Burrow take last summer before we even saw it on the field and I remember thinking, “I’ll believe it when I see it.” There a good chance Ryan updates his comments on Myles after seeing him this summer.

Clark was also down on Joe when he transferred. But admitted he was wrong last summer.

I mean The one thing you can objectively say about Brennen is that the arm is there.

Idk why Ryan Clark is being a wet blanket about this.

The arm talent he is likely referring to is the lack of a finesse throw. It’s 110mph or nothing. That’s Brennan’s biggest downside.

Arm strength doesn’t lack AT ALL.

When Clark says "arm talent", are we sure he's just referring to arm strength? Of course Myles has a cannon but does he have the touch, accuracy and ball placement of an elite quarterback? I've rewatched every snap Brennan has taken over this quarantine and I kind of see what Clark is saying.

One thing I definitely agree with is the hype machine that is the coaching staff pumping up MB. Its been so over done it feels like they're trying to convince us instead of giving an objective evaluation.

Now having said that, I still think him being a fraction of what JB was last year in the same offense could be enough for a playoff run with the defense and running game (our Oline is going to push folks around with our size) we're going to have. I'm predicting 3700 yards, 63% comp, 34 TDs and 13 ints.

For some perspective, while those number are nowhere near last year, they would still be good for the second best season by a QB in school history.

This has got to be it. He has a cannon but has lacked in touch.

Ryan should have clarified this though as a talking head.

So RC was on AFR with Moscona to explain his thinking behind this and I get it. He even says if he is wrong, he would be on ESPN telling everyone so.

Let's just hope the season starts on time, play some good football and see what MB does.

Arm talent seems to be there, saw more finesse on those short throws when he had some cleanup time at the end of the year. Only question about Brennen is if he has that DOG in him....

I agree with the 110 mph throws, but that was in the beginning. That last 2 times MB went into the game, I watched him perfectly place the ball with touch. I thought "Uh Oh", if this kid grabs this and learns to read defense, he is a first rounder.

RC was wrong about Joe and is wrong about Myles. He likes to state controversial stuff so people talk about him. I believe he’s a narcissist.

Arm talent is more than being able to wing it 70 yds. We have not seen "touch" and accuracy. Not saying he does not have it. Just have not seen it yet. i have to believe a guy who threw for 15K yds in HS has them. Those two attributes were key in Joe's success.

When you only look at the zip a QB puts on the ball then Brandon Harris was right up there with the best of them...

This. I noticed a couple really good throws late in the season as well.
