Calling all QB coaches

Can someone tell me why Cam's short term accuracy is lacking and what if anything can be done to correct it? I know the guy has a great arm but why in the hell do some passes give him so much trouble? Is it mechanics or forcing the throw?

It's him scared of throwing picks so he decides to zip it as hard as he can. This combined with his tendency to throw while still in his drop back, make the passes off the mark. Its hard as a receiver to catch a one or three step slant with the ball comin at you 9999 MPH.

His footwork has been terrible at times this year. Like his knees looked like they were touching. That's not right.

I'm not a coach but it seems Cam needs to work on his footwork/throwing mechanics quite a bit and the play calling is not helping him develop.

Playcalling doesn't have anything to do with the throws. Cam has great deep ball accuracy but needs to work on the short and intermediate stuff.

Footwork, mechanics and touch would all help him greatly. I'd love to see him back with Whitfield in the offseason again.

He throws rockets. Do you really expect anyone not named Smitty to catch something that fast?

I mean it's safe to say that Cam will never be a surgeon with the football. But he makes enough throws as it is...and he makes up for it with his play making ability and scrambling on 3rd down to extend drives...hes got enough tools to give us a chance to win...Oh ya and he's 6'6 250

i had a similar problem in basketball, I could hit three's all day and make crazy acrobatic layups, but I would miss the wide open bunnies. Its very frustrating. I would miss them becuase I would think about not screwing up. On the hard stuff it was just instinct and I did well. Long story short its Cam thinking too much trying not to screw up the easy stuff. Only fixes with exp
