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)
