Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan on Cam

Just listening to Moving the Chains on Sirius.

 

Jim Miller looked at the first half film of the Buffalo game and saw Cam make basic errors.

 

  • Not making simple reads
  • Missing open receivers
  • Not getting his feet set

 

Pat Kirwan expressed worry that Cam still has problems in year 3 and wondered if Cam can fix the problems.

 

Miller also critcized the first half run/pass ratio which was 30 passes and 10 runs.

Please don't shoot the messenger.

Ive been saying for going on 3 years now that CAM has issues with setting his feet. He's always throwing the damn ball off of his back foot. This cause a more arm shoulder throw and does not allow him to follow through with the pass. Making the pass sail high most of the time.

Hard to set your feet with poor protection

Yeah I heard this conversation.  The most concerning part they said about his development (or lack there of), was not being able to read the defensive coverage.  Simple "over/under" coverage was not being noticed by Cam, and that it's almost like he already knows who he's going to throw it to before the snap.

 

 

Who and who?

Rich Gannon (former OAK QB) & Pat Kirwin (former GM/position coach)

 

Both are very knowledgeable IMO

 

edit:  Sorry I thought it was Rich Gannon when I was listening.  Jim Miller was a QB for the Giants...

Cam had enough protection.  The plays took to long to develop and he would stare down his primary receiver.

That is concerning. But what if this has to do with the move to a more traditional, conservative offense? I don't think Cam could have the explosive season he did like his rookie year and not be able to read a defense.

 

I just hope Cam isn't one of those players that's full of sht. Every week he talks about hard work and getting better. Yadayadayada. Cam is an exciting player but he needs to hit his stride soon.

If you sit and think, it really is quite sad.

 

We draft a talent like Cam in 2011 first overall. Who do we hire to be his QB coach? Mike Shula, wait, who is this guy? Fast forward to 2013, Shula is OC, and who is Cam's QB coach this year? You guessed it, a cheap nobody.

 

Dorsey was hired as a scout here initially and has zero coaching background. The only QB worth a damn that Shula had worked with was the great David Garrard. Yet people want to run our quarterback out of town.

 

Remember all our special teams struggles? What do we do to alleviate this? Hire a new coach? Nope, we just promote from within and hope for the best and that the unit will magically turn things around out of nowhere.

 

Fans are screaming for Rivera's head, and yes that is deservedly so obviously, but he is just one of many bargain basement hires that have come right from the top. Until JR changes his ways, we aren't going anywhere.

I think Cam is just used to making throws on his arm alone.. And hes not used to stepping up in the pocket, rather escaping out the back. I can't imagine Cam not going through pocket presence drills in practice though, so i dont know what the deal is.

 

O-Line is the main cause here in my opinion.

Miller was with the Giants for his last year as a backup but his best years if you can call them that was with Chicago from 1998 through 2002.
