Agree, but the Patriots have consistently sought out QB's with bigger hands in the BB era.

A good summary here:

From Pats Pulpit

View attachment 32437

The ideal size for a NFL QB per google is 9.5....and only O'Connell and KIngsbury had smaller than 9" above....both now are coaches....hmmm....
You say that New England 'seeks out' QBs with larger hand size. Then you tell us that 9.5 is the ideal hand size. But 6 of those 11 QBs selected BY New England have a smaller than 9.5" hand size.


So I really don't see the correlation at all.

Yeah, it is not my "assertion". It is something that Reiss has written over the years. I should have been more clear on that it was Reiss attributing the Pats' draft brass as favoring bigger hands. I'll dig up a few columns later.....remind me please.
