    Haven't read much about Lamar's pinky on the back of the football for a while.

    And for that matter, no 600 page threads on spiral science. Let the young man play his game is all we (well most of us) were saying.
    I'm glad we made the choice to go all in with him. I'm excited to see how high his ceiling is

    Re: Haven't read much about Lamar's pinky on the back of the football for a while.

    I'm not knowledgeable enough on the grip issue specifically to comment one way or the other, but it appears to me that through 2 games his footwork and throwing motion have looked much improved. Notably, one of the only passes I would consider to have been a true "miss" was a sidearm throw over the middle against the Cardinals, if I recall correctly.

    I said previously that the kind of mechanical issues Lamar had previously are difficult to correct with 10-ish years of muscle memory behind them. But "difficult" is not "impossible" especially for someone with the work ethic of Lamar Jackson--which was a caveat I always made. (See sig below.)

    Amen. One year ago some of us were out here saying Lamar is the future even while Joe was starting.

    Most couldn't understand the vision much less handle the optimism. Either way I'm glad to see the LJ bandwagon filling up.

    Funny, I believe LJ's improvement is in large part due to his taking into consideration things like pinky placement and spiral science. I give him credit for working on his craft and believe that that will carry him longer if not further than his legs.

    For the record ....it was his index finger on the point of the ball that brought concern.
    As far as “spiral science” this will be the first bad weather game we’ve played. Poor weather is were spirals come to play. Clean air you can flip the ball through it.

    That being said Lamar so far is Night and day better than last year.

    Lax is correct, it was his index finger. It would be next to impossible to throw a ball having your pinky on the back point of a ball. just look at your hand and imagine a ball in it and where the pinky would be. That being said, his throws no longer seem to wobble. Not sure if it's his grip or not, but whatever he's doing, he needs to keep doing it.

    Lol. Maybe the OP just made a mistake? He’s only off by 3 digits. Lol.

    As a side note ....I’d challenge ANYONE to throw a spiral with their pinky on the end of the ball!! Lmao.
