Dropping balls in a bucket worked out real well for Wienke......
Not sure how it worked out for Wienke. However, after Dorsey had the QBs try the drill, Cam said he could understand the rationale behind it. For the record, Cam hit the 50 gal. drum once. From 40 yards, not bad. Don't remember the number of throws.
But it is like everything else he is trying to learn. They can go out the window in the heat of the battle.
The good news? The more he practices the good habits, the sooner they become learned behavior. When Cam sees these throws on tape, he can actually see, evaluate, then improve. He will file them away for future reference. Next time he is in that situation, he will instinctively know what to do. "I knew what to do because...well...I'd already done it."
If Cam has an off day once in a while? And we still spank you. I can live with that.
Cam was late with his throw to Ginn on the deep route, or he could have led him more to the sideline. But with that being said, I really thought Ginn could have made a better play on that INT. The ball was in the air for awhile, and he totally misplayed it. How can a ball thrown 40+ yards end up being behind you so you can only reach back with one hand? You have to be able to adjust to the ball better than that. Worst case, knock it down for your QB.
I had that thought drop in my head as well. But, from the replays, which were few and far between if you ask me, I couldn't see much of his route. Hard to tell where he is coming from.
And yeah. That was one pass Cam had some air under. Seems like Teddy had plenty of time to adjust.
Although, when Cam threw that ball the first thought out was, underthrow.
