Cam and his problems

48 posts in this topic

I'm rewatching the game right now.

Backfoot: This is becoming a problem for Cam throwing off his backfoot, leads to high inaccurate balls, he needs to work on his mechanics instead of relying on his arm strength.

Low snaps: Are becoming a problem with Kalil because he has to take his eyes off the field and on securing the ball which takes him off his progressions.

Offensive line: the oline backing into Cam is a problem, him getting hit while throwing often leads to floated balls and can easily be intercepted.

hard not to throw off your back foot when you're being pushed backwards off your front foot.

He also needs to stop looking downfield all the time and take what they give him underneath. Sometimes he gets a little over confident and thinks he can use his arm strength to squeeze the ball in a tight spot. It is awesome when it works but a lot of times, those balls are overthrown, tipped, or incomplete.

But seriously wtf is with Kalil and his low snaps?

I noticed Kalil had a lot of low snaps today. Pesky.

The thing about those downfield passes everyone is upset about-most of the time the receiver is open...Cam just hasn't been hitting them the past couple weeks. We were highly succesful doing that in the beginning of the year when he was accurate, but he's gotten mechanically lazy the past couple weeks. Yes, there has pressure in the interior the past couple weeks (which makes me think RG is a much bigger need than the high profile OT everybody seems to want) but the lanes have still been there. He's simply been sluggish mechanically, and the coaching staff needs to get onto him about it.

Kalil was hurt last week; may still be.

Pretty sure every shotgun snap was low, some were virtually on the ground. there is no doubt it is hurting Cam's ability to get the ball out quick.

My main issues with him are that I think he is too reluctant to take the short gains, holds onto the ball too long (this is tied to the previous) and that he is very inconsistent in his mechanics. I think he can improve on all these areas, but I do think his mechanics are a bit worse than when he started the season, and it's showing with the consistency of his passes. That is not terribly surprising all things considered and it's not something I am panicking about, because he is just a rookie.

I believe he did better with not taking the sack etc, button he just has to learn to not throw it's within so many defenders in the area.

The main problem for Cam is he presses cause he knows he needs to make a TD on every drive. Once he knows he can rely on his Defense things will get better.

The relief is his problems are mostly mental and he's very coachable.

How many times was Cam sacked by the vaunted Lions pass rush?
