After snap, bring ball to back chest – Baseball Bat Ball is vertical. Elbows in, shoulders and arms loose. The ball swings slightly in a relaxed manner. Ball is inches from chest. Exert pressure on ball with front hand Keeps ball from swaying and pulls ball into position to throw BRETT FAVRE
Feet parallel and shoulder width apart Front foot slightly ahead of back (toe-instep) Your “stance arrow”, the arrow pointing perpendicularly out of the arch of your back foot, should be pointing at your target. Weight concentrated on the inside ball of your back foot and inside of knee. Look over front shoulder which is pointed at your receiver. Hold ball in both hands, relaxed, and a few inches away from your body at your back pec, just like holding a baseball bat. Elbows down, shoulders level and loose. Both knees should be slightly bent so your hips drop slightly (6’2” becomes 6’1”)
There are 2 categories of grips – 1 & 4’s, 2 & 5’s Regardless, your little finger must be over the laces Keep a light grip on the ball with the tips of your fingers Ball should not rest in the palm You should be able to slide a pencil between the palm of your hand and the ball When you grip the ball there should only be the slightest bit of tension in your arm Arm must be able to move like a whip Over gripping tends to tighten up muscles in forearm and shoulder – using upper arm strength DAN MARINO

INDEX FINGER IS POINTED AT THE TARGET. BALL IS COMING OFF INDEX FINGER. THUMB IS DOWN. OFF ARM WORKS THROUGH TIGHT TO BODY AS HE FINISHES THE THROW.
Index finger is the last finger to leave the ball. It is the guide finger (pusher finger) Provides last push on ball and determines its attitude in flight. Properly = ball flies with nose slightly upward and to the right (right handed passer) because of the pressure you have exerted on the tail of the ball. Pressure should be downward and in as hand completes motion across body.

ARM WAS EXTENDED TO THE TARGET. HIS HAND WORKS TO OPPOSITE THIGH WITH THUMB DOWN. CYLINDER TO THE TARGET.
Finish the throw “ON BALANCE” with your back foot ahead of your front and everything still and balanced. You can only do this if you utilize your left arm to produce torque and power out of the throw. We always want our throwing shoulder pointed at the target and our back leg to come thru.
YOUR HEAD MUST REMAIN STILL THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE THROW. Throwing arm will lag slightly behind your shoulders as it shifts forward with your body
Short throw - locked front knee from landing toe first Hi throws - hips getting out in front of you causing throwing shoulder to dip
