To expand on this...
1. What did each do really well in 11-11s? What did they do the worst?-Cam looked frazzled and Jimmy looked like the vet. Jimmy was the one throwing the darts and Cam's accuracy faded big time. Jimmy progressed through his reads calmly and hit his targets...even Smitty who made McClain (I think) look like a rag doll juking him not once, not twice, but three times for a TD.
2. How is accuracy for each? Who is more accurate right now under pressure?
-Jimmy's accuracy was off in the beginning with no zip and slightly behind his first couple targets. Cam was spot on and throwing darts. Again, outside of the 11-on-11 there was no D-line present nor O-line to throw over, just pitch and catch with WRs against DBs. Jimmy has to get in a rhythm on comeback routes...as noted earlier, he struggled today with that route. From what I saw today, Jimmy handles pressure better.
3. Does the offense overall look far behind the defense?
-I'm worried about the DBs, both QBs torched them all day long. Most incompletions were on the QB or WR and RARELY the efforts of the cover man. In the 11-on-11 the D-line generated decent pressure "sacking" Cam once. This drill was one of the shorter ones and to be honest, a lack of a full compliment of players, doesn't paint a complete picture for me. The offense looked to be slightly ahead of the defense. Take that with a grain of salt becasue the dogs aren't off the leash as of yet. They are still playing touch football outside of the trenches. The lines were the only ones hitting today.
4. Do Cam and Jimmy seem to be picking up the playbook?
In short yes. One of the last drills was simply at walk-through pace where a play was given and the WRs jogged their route. At this point Shula halted them and made the QB talk about his progressions. If I recall neither Jimmy nor Cam got corrected.
5. Are both guys still telegraphing throws or actually going through some progressions?
I hate to sound like a broken record but the 11-on-11's didn't last very long and only ran once. Both seemed to go though their progressions, although Jimmy looked calm in his reads and Cam couldn't see the forest for the trees.
Neither looked to be telegraphing their throws, but that could just be a reflecton of our DB play as well.
