Why are QBs taught to spread fingers so wide on non throwing hand? Note Charlie's left hand.

Seems like the natural thing. The throwing hand has spread fingers. Try it yourself. For me, it is more comfortable for both hands to be doing the same thing, albeit without a ball in the non-throwing hand than one hand positioned one way and the other another.

I don't think there is any teaching to it, just a natural thing.
