But did you see the effort it took by Tua to throw the ball that far? He had to put his entire body into those throws. A QB with a strong arm could have just flicked the ball that far.

There are some social media posts for which you have to know the author in order to determine whether the post is serious or sarcastic. I suspect this post is one of them.

you mean, like this one of yours?....regardless, it’s encouraging so see this even though camp performance in shorts and flip flops at this point is all HOF worthy across the league. I’ll wait until the real bullets start flying.

He did have to reach down deep on those two throws, but I love the accuracy. He is further ahead than he was last year, so, I expect real improvement. The Bills gave Allen a legit veteran deep threat and some protection in year 3 and it made him the QB he is today. Let's hope that we can say the same about Tua.

BTW, he threw this deep one with a flick ... and he is leading his receiver as in the two previous clips.

He has no pressure in his face and isn’t rushed to throw the ball. I’m hoping we get the same results from him when the pads are on and the jerseys have grass stains on them.
I think with adequate protection, he is going to make a big leap this year.

Yes, my post is exactly the one I was referencing.

I tried to make it clear that my post was sarcastic, because I have been a big supporter of Tua since we drafted him, but I evidently failed.

If there ever was anyone who could "flick" the ball deep down the field it would have been Dan the Man, and that was due to the way it looked when he threw the ball with his unique motion.

"Tua cannot hit Cheetah in stride, Cheetah will have to come back for the pass."

"Yeah I saw Tua hit Cheetah in stride, but he had to put his entire body into the throw. Josh Allen can make that throw with both legs and arms amputated."

It never ends.

Et tu, Brute?

The very fact that no one (except maybe C') recognized that I was being sarcastic, even when I practically admitted it in the post, shows how sensitive folks are about his arm strength. Here I was, after two great throws by Tua, trying to make fun of all those who say his arm isn't strong enough, and ... well, let's just say that sarcasm isn't any good when you have to explain it.

I was with you, bro. Just didn't post. Tua's arm isn't a problem. Neither is his pocket presence or timing/anticipation. The only worry I have for him is his ability to stay on the field. If he does that, we have our QB1. My opinion, fwiw.

I know you were being sarcastic. I was paraphrasing what I'm seeing on Twitter.

The thing you're not hearing a lot about is Tua being intercepted in practice.
