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...

Posted Image

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'd accept shoddy foot work for a couple years if he'd stop fumbling the ball away.

He must be approaching Clausens single year fumble record .

Throwing off the Blackfoot too much and I dnt blame Cam for it. I blame Rivera and his coaching staffs for doing a poor job developing Cam for pretty much two years now.

Rivera wanted "teachers"? I don't see any of our students learning anything from these teachers. We may arguably have the worst coaching staffs in the whole entire league.

Poor footwork at this point = poor coaching.

This can be fixed. But it will take time to do so.

I thought Shula was supposed to be the qb guru?
