FanPost

A question for the internet.

This is going to be a fairly short Fan Post (also my first), so for that I apologize. My question is, when I see Aaron Rodgers in the shotgun, when the ball is snapped to him, why does the ball get there with a ton more velocity than it gets to Wilson with? When I see Wilson take a snap, it seems like a really slow played out lob. We have a pro-bowl center, so I am sure its by design, but I want a satisfying, definitive answer as to why?

My initial instinct told me that its strategy, and QB preference. Rodgers likes to secure the ball, and examine the field, and what the defense actually does, while Wilson wants a split second to see who drops where, and what kind of trickery the defense was trying to pull, before he has the ball. I was watching the game with my grandma (Parents live with them while building a house, and I wanted to watch it with my dad) and she happens to be really short. Me and my dad were talking about this, and she added that because of his height, the best time for him to watch the initial play development would be before the line was able to stand all the way up. My grandmother blew my mind with potentially logical football analysis... Confirm or debunk or better explain this for me please?
