  • QBs working with pitching coaches?

    Joe Flacco has been working with USC pitching coaches to work on his craft. The Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron suggested it. I was wondering has this ever happened before, if so did the QB improve? I dont understand why a QB would go work with a pitching coach.

    I've never heard of something like that. Maybe he's working on a gyro ball?

        Kind of an odd choice for Flacco to work with USC pitching coaches. They might have a better program though, I don't follow NCAA Baseball at all.

          If Cameron recommended it he probably has some ties there from his Chargers days.

            Pitching coaches know how to improve shoulder strength, and velocity on the football. Not like it can hurt any.

                Isn't that how Tebow learned to throw a football?

                  Ive heard of pitchers learning to throw with a football but not the other way around.

                  Im a USC fan, but idk why anyone would want to work with USC's pitching coach, he has destroyed arms over the years.

                  I wouldn't be sir prized if he passed McCoy on the depth chart. I think he might have a better arm and accurate arm then him from the highlights I thought. He also got some wheels too help us prepare for QB's as Wilson , RG3 and other runners etc.

                      football toss can help warm up the arm strength and thats it. I dont see football throwing could help a pitcher to pitch better due to elbow and grip difference.

                      Working with pitching coach? I guess it is about torso or release.

                        Hes learning to throw the nuckle ball, McNabb has mastered that.

                          that must be where brady quinn learned to throw his eephus pass

                            Possibly to improve his "arm strength"? Who knows? I'd imagine he has to be working on something involving his core/legs though, he can't be getting mechanics tips from a pitching coach.

                            The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                            If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.
