Qb fundamentals and mechanics MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN

When I watched KO at Purdue he had a lot of what a good college qb needs, quick drop back, vision, ability to react to the defense. His throwing motion was high over the top with a good release point. He seemed calm and subdued, mature for his years, and able to lead his team. As I watched him in Denver I was starting to see some problems with his fundamentals and mechanics. Playing in the NFL against the finest in the world can do that to a person, what I mean is if you have a deficiency that can be exploited it will most certainly happen. I always liked Kyle as a player, tough, focused and level headed. Lately though, I was seeing a different player. When he dropped back, the ball was held low, then he set his feet, and after they were set, brought the ball up in a rounded fashion like a pitcher... giving defensive linemen a chance to time the release much like a batter does in baseball. I noticed in the Oakland game he had the ball low and in one hand during a heavy down pour and seemed to hit it with other hand trying to bring it up. While he has a good grasp of the offensive playbook, sometimes it is obvious he is not in sync with the other players, throwing to seemingly no one in the flat, lineman and receivers run blocking when he throws?? It seemed like he was letting the game be dictated to him. What came to mind was a phrase I used to yell at my son and daughters sporting events.....Don't Wait For It To Happen, Make It Happen......Enter Tim Tebow. Holds the ball to low, big long wind up, poor mechanics from under center, maybe not yet comfortable with the playbook or his fellow players, impatient feet. Is it just me or does he seem to create a huge amount of space for himself behind the line of scrimmage? Also, do I sense that no matter the immediate successes or failures, He seems to dictate the pace of the game? Was it my imagination or did number 52 of the Chargers really wind up on his butt when Fells missed his block  and Timmy dipped his shoulder into him after the play, (where was the personal foul ref?)........Making something happen is the most exciting play in football and it IS contagious, Knowshon got a touch of that bug on Sunday, as did the O-line and defense. Some say our lines are not fundamentally sound, our receivers don't run crisp routes, our defense gets out of position....poor mechanics.....so what, none of this will matter if they just make SOMETHING happen!!
