Did you see them practice?

I covered Patton a lot before work took me to St. Louis/SN. He had a rifle. Arm strength was very similar to Gabbert's. And much, much better than Daniel's. He had an NFL-caliber throwing arm.

He wasn't as good at reading defenses or playing at high pace as Chase. But his phyiscal talents were good enough to be a good starting QB in college.

The offense they ran under Chase was also designed to fit Daniel's talents - quick reads, distribution of the ball, exploiting tight and crowded areas of the field.

Under Patton, it would have looked a little different and more like what it did with Gabbert at QB (though without the David Yost fruit-loopiness.
