this trait has been often lamented this year by Green Bay watchers of Rodgers…who has sometimes done this without issue in his career because he has always had an arm like a Panzerfaust. But it seems to be affecting him this year, with protection issues and lack of experienced receivers, resulting in unprecedentedly poor accuracy and power for him.Not an expert, but he frequently throws the ball with most of his weight supported on his back foot. Sometimes, he is actively moving backward when he releases the ball. That's not an good way to get high velocity. This is sometimes a consequence of the poor blocking by the offensive line, sometimes a result of his failure to move up in the pocket, sometimes due to his skittishness.
