Is Cam not following through because of arm fatigue or is it because his o- line isn't affording him enough time?

Here's a few reasons why I wouldn't cut him if it were up to me. After practice 07/28/13

 

AWWWW

 

HE OPENS HIS HEART AS WIDE AS HE OPENS THE A GAPS

I'm not questioning his accuracy or passes. I'm just worried about the little stuffs like I said: form, follow through and throwing off the right foot. Seen too many times where he gotten lucky by his natural abilities. Too many times he gotten by that throwing off the wrong foot. Those are little things that Cam has to improve on. Those are things that even a guy like Peyton Manning still find ways to improve at. Those are things that make a Peyton Manning a Peyton Manning, a Drew Brees a Drew Brees, Tom Brady a Tom Brady, etc.

And I wouldn't start arguing accuracy with "taller" receivers. That's sort of a ridiculous statement. There's no such things as good/bad accuracy with "midget"/giant receivers. Look at Seattle; short QB + short WRs.

 

Ehhhhhh if your talking about his running ability then yes I agree, but when Cam is forced to throw off his back foot (usually due to having no room to step up) he looks incredibly uncomfortable.  He never tries to play like an RG3, Vick, Favre or Doug Flutie where he scrambles around a bit and looks to whip out an ugly (and risky) dump off pass.  He only does things like that in a last ditch effort, while his throwing motion naturally suggests he's better suited to be a pocket passer.

 

Believe it or not Cam's tendency to sail passes high in most cases is beneficial.  He's not perfectly on point yet, and most quarterbacks never get to that Drew Brees level of accuracy.  Since his one issue (sailing passes) is consistent, it means it's coachable.  He's not all over the place suggesting it's a mild and correctable mechanical issue, rather than being just downright inaccurate.  

 

In most scenarios, overthrowing (the exception being passes over the middle with deep safeties) is significantly better than underthrowing or just being plain off target.  Due to the nature of the DB position, they are generally still moving to get in position to make a play on the ball after the ball has been thrown, this makes it difficult to maximize their leaping potential, thus making the receiver the only guy on the field who has a remote chance of catching the ball.  When underthrowing the DB just has to stick their mits out or make a dive toward the ground which is MUCH easier than leaping after a sharp cut.
