September 15 Quick Kicks Podcast- DeShone Kizer’s Mechanics and Throwing the Football

It has been almost two weeks since the Notre Dame-Texas football game, which some regarded as an instant classic, and many are still talking about it. On the September 15 Quick Kicks Podcast Chuck Zodda and Mark Schofield discuss one of the biggest story lines from the game, Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer. A big part of the Fighting Irish’s comeback, Kizer snagged the starting QB job for Week 2 and the foreseeable future, but the game tape brings up some questions about his mechanics and throwing motion. Other topics include:

  • Kizer’s game against Texas and whether he can overtake Deshaun Watson as the best QB (2:35)
  • Breaking down the game film of Kizer against Texas and a mechanical flaw that makes his throw tail off toward the end (4:49)
  • How often does this flaw show up in Kizer’s throws and what can he do to fix it (10:40)
  • Will Kizer’s flawed mechanics effect his draft position (14:57)
  • Do any other quarterbacks from last year’s draft class or this years have similar mechanical flaws (16:49)
  • The NFL’s color rush uniforms are discussed (18:06)
