Yes, Mizzou throws the ball a lot, but a lot of scouts had questions about Gabbert and the offense he was in. He didn't throw many touchdowns coming from a pass happy offense and they ran a lot of short timing routes, somewhat similar to Rich Rod's where they find soft spots in zones. This isn't exactly what all NFL teams are looking for, and we heard a lot about upgrading to a big boy offense with precision routes and leading the receivers to the ball. Just a difference in philosophies, and both could produce great NFL QB's, but it did surprise me just how many people were down on his overall passing game coming from a pass first offense.
