Cam's Footwork in Pictures

79 posts in this topic

Many of us have commented on how absolutely god awful Cam's footwork is this season.

Here is a prime example from the Giants game...

1, Which foot is his weight on while throwing?

2. Do you see any players in his face?

3. Look at the trajectory of the ball. Would you guess that to be long, short, or on target?

4. The third frame, one knee almost touching the other. Clearly moving backward by throwing.

This HAS to be fixed if Cam has any shot at being a star in this league. The longer it is allowed to go on, the longer it is going to take to fix the issue.

Well, it needs to be fixed....

But plenty of QBs who win have poo footwork.....Big Ben and Eli's foot work is all over the map.

He does have footwork problems, but it's hard to know what's going on in these pictures without seeing what's going on around him...

Also when he drops back from center he trips over him self nearly every time, no doubt throwing timing off and not easy to scan the field when youre stopping yourself from falling. I believe in you, but get to work man!!!

Not nearly as bad and as frequent as cam's. Not even close.

I'm not worried about it... We were also running the read option into the ground that night, as well as most of the season. His footwork plagues him most when we have him run the option and when he's been pressured, the latter being the problem when most QBs footwork fails. He'll get it together.

Well, no....it isn't as bad as often as a young guy in his 2nd season but it was close when they where that young.

Current version of Eli throws off his backfoot just as much as Cam....he just doesn't have all the other issues.

Zod, I cant critique his footwork without knowing the outcome of the play.

Cam has terrible mechanics on screen passes even when there's no one around him. I've never seen so many passes where a running back would have to leap into the air to bring the ball down. Watch Brady, Ryan or Brees. That ball just drops into the receiver's laps because the QB isn't just chucking up a can of corn.

You'd think a coaching staff hired so they could be teachers or whatever would try to fix that but hurf durf *makes jacking off motion*

I mentioned this a few times like others.

Go back and look at the pick 6 he threw this past Sunday. Even though Smith fell down, causing the pick 6, look at Cams footwork on the play. He looked like a shortstop or something making a throw from deep in the hole. Telegraphed all the way. Smith falling down might not have saved it, who knows.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
