to me its more about consistent accuracy than accuracy. How can anyone deny he didnt have moments in the preseason where he showed accuracy. Moreover these moments came when he stepped into throws and didnt revert to poor mechanics like throwing off his back foot. I mean if he can show flashes of being accurate, why can that turn into consistency w/ time?

I’ve heard some “experts” say you can’t really develop accuracy. You either have it or you don’t…I think Meril Hodge said that but I don’t trust him anyway.

I think he'll be fine. I think it really boils down to his footwork and once he learns to consistently throw from a solid base we'll see an improvement.

I don't think he'll ever be a real accurate passer, ala Brees, Rodgers, Manning, but with everything else he's able to do he just needs to be adequate to be highly effective. Hopefully he can reach and stay above the 60% mark.

Thats bullpoo to me. I mean how is accuracy something you just have, its not like being clutch where there is a large mental aspect to it. It boils down to throwing the football, its all mechanical and he has shown accuracy, he just doesnt show it all the time.

accuracy is by definition producing consistently predictable results. If it is not consistent, it isn't accuracy.

100% agree w/ this. Look at Vick, im pretty sure he has never broken the 60% barrier, but with everything he can do, he doesnt have to be Peyton, Brady, Rodgers accurate. Same w/ Cam.

Merril hoge is a fuggin hater, through & through. He's been wrong on so many rookie QBs before, he knocks almost every single one & says they won't be any good.

I would have loved to hear his 'expert opinion' during Troy Aikmen's first starting year, or Peyton Manning's. He would have killed them too.

Oh, I forgot, he was having a very mediocre career at the time doing absolutely nothing.


Anyways, Cam will never Brees level accurate, but he can definitely improve. All you have to do is look towards the rookies that had low 40% accuracy in their first preseason, then how they progressed throughout the year.

That's pretty stupid, you can absolutely develop and work on your accuracy...
