Re: 2012 Bengals discussion
I always assumed most of those under throws were purposely done. Teams always had a safety helping out on AJ, had Dalton led him perfectly on a lot of those passes it would have been into trouble. I just assumed the under thrown jump ball was what he was aiming for.
There were times that he hit him in stride when there wasn't help over the top. Against Seattle on a bomb, and against St. Louis. He also overthrew him on quite a few occasions.
It's not often that you're going to want your QB to lay one out 55 yards in the air or anything, if he can hit the 40 yard-ish plays with any accuracy whatsoever it would be more than enough to hit a lot of homeruns imo.
