    DK has a different take on Pickett than Moats. Acknowledged that it's just OTA but felt the kid held his own against the vets.

    Pickett has time to grow to the position. He has two starters ahead of him.
    Time and fate will dictate when he starts.
    I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the lot of you that lambasted them for not being aggressive and get Watson and how we lost the division right then and there when they failed to do so. There were MANY of you.
    Thank all that’s holy your opinions come from the seat of an arm chair and not this front office or we might have been more of a clown than the clowns.

    Mitch will start and Kenny will wait in the wings.

    The helmet is ridiculous.

    But, look at the hand placement of his right hand. There is no way you can throw a ball with your right hand gripping the football like that. It looks like he is going to try and throw a knuckle ball.

    I noticed that but I’ve watched enough of him to know thats not his normal grip. I don’t know what is going on there.

    I also noticed how large the football looks in his hands :lolol:

    That's what I get from your post because you said you would take any of those three over Pickett and I know your preference was Willis, a third-rounder.

    I only listened to part of it because I can only stand so much of Dejan, but he seems to be focusing more on what is going on between the ears. Of course, that is the hardest part of a quarterback to evaluate, but often the most important. While Pickett is the equal of every quarterback in the 2022 draft except Willis physically, it is his processing and approach to the game that set him apart.

    Dejan has been at this a hell of a lot longer than Moats. Maybe he went into it with an agenda. Moats definitely did.

    On the other hand, ;) as much as I dislike the guy, Phillip Rivers was pretty successful with a weird throwing motion...

    I don't recall anyone complaining about hand size with Flutie, just his height. I didn't notice but, are his hands oversized like Michelangelo's "David"? He seems to have done pretty well.....

    NFL network showing Pickett #2 on depth chart behind Mitch. Showing Mason #3 and Oladokun #4. Sounds about right to me. Trade or cut Landry jones, er, I mean Mason Rudolph.

    Jones threw a pick, I mean Rudolph did while Pickett and Trubisky made nice plays.

    I just found out that finger extension surgery is a real thing.

    Sit him for the year, crank that hand up to 10 inches and , next year, sit back enjoy the magic.

    Funny, I remember hearing that on a show from a plastic surgeon who was talking about ways to tell men and women apart and all the procedures he had performed on people wanting to change sexes.

    In a man the ring finger is longer than the index finger, while in a women the index finger is longer than the ring finger.

    He said he had only been asked once in his entire career to change the look of some ones hands.

    Next time you are in a bar at 2AM in the morning wondering if you truly want to go home with someone, you may want to check out their hands before leaving the bar. :)

    You could look for an Adam’s apple, too.

    There is always the Dundee method.
