Cam's accuracy

McNabb was in a completely different offense.

The bolded part is just outrageous.

McNabb may have been in a different offense.....he was not even close to being considered an accurate passer though. The need for accuracy is probably more important for his offense. His other postive aspects help offset the fact he struggled making tons of throws that are generally required to run that offense.

Cam has a great deep ball. He has always had a good feel and placement on those throws. Sorry TRD, but there are postives to his game. It ain't all doom and gloom.

Don't believe everything you hear from the media just watch his games. He's very accurate deep.

Yeah, he was very accurate when throwing to Ricky Manning JR. Too! Lol.

Accuracy will be improved as he gets more practices and games in. I'm not too worried, it'll come.

I agree with TRD. Cam's long ball looks to be pretty accurate and as the receivers get more comfortable running their routes, his accuracy should improve. Can't wait.

um?

You realize he doesn't have significant accuracy issues, right? He makes some rookie mistakes but that's to be expected. Have you even been to camp? Cease making threads.

Yeah, and it's already infected by the TRD virus, get it off mah dick!!!

I'd post a cute .gif of someone trying to disinfect their crotch, but that might make someone's panties twist up.

The fact that you used Vick as an example of an accurate passer should prove that accuracy can be improved. During Vick's failcons days he was the definition of inaccurate.

More importantly what color and brand of jock strap does Cam wear?

these are the things you need to know in order to sniff properly

Cam's accuracy, on a relative basis, sucks.

On his staged pro day he missed 6 open receivers.

Clausen, McCoy, and Bradford combined missed 3... and they aren't tops in accuracy by any means.

But am I worried? No.

I'm not worried because a dual threat quarterback find open receivers in space. Unlike Clausen who will have to throw lasers into a defense expecting a pass, Cam can shake things up with his mobility and find an open man without having to worry about hitting him right in the numbers. If you watch Vince Young, he does that all day. Vick used to do that for a living, but I can honestly say his accuracy drastically improved last year. McNabb has a rocket arm and was very dangerous when he used to be accurate, but last year his touch on passes was terrible.

I only attended one practice (the first one) but I didn't see any major accuracy issues with the passes Cam was throwing and in some cases he appeared to be the most accurate QB on the field (may not be saying much). I was suprised to see him throw the ball into the ground 10 ft. infront of a receiver when he was rolling out of the pocket (scrambling, not a designed roll out) but he was throwing it on the run and accross his body. I also saw him underthrow one or two deep routes (not badly) but I think that's more a matter of timing then accuracy - he also made a few beautiful deep throws.

I do think Cam has a tendancy to put a little too much on the ball at times and this has been mentioned by others as well. This results in some high throws and those can be dangerous, but that's fixable.

It's too early to come to any conclusions good or bad about Cam, but I don't have any major concerns based on what I've seen/heard so far.

My God. Cam has had two padded practices in a brand new offense (to everybody) with WR's that he's never played with. Did anybody really think that the ball would never touch the ground?
