Not trying to spam I just can't find the appropriate place to put this.. either way despite our issues we should be pumped for our first playoff game in 5 years.. hope this helps!

I'm guessing you didn't watch the Atlanta/SF game the week before.

 

It was SF's last game in Candlestick. They were trying to win their division too, and are viewed as a serious threat for the SB. In comparison, we were on the road against a division rival that knows us very well, and it was the final game for a future HOF member.

 

In case you didn't see it, SF was in serious jeopardy of losing the game until a fluke interception bailed them out.

 

Are you serious?

So that game (SF/ATL) is why Cam was overthrowing the WRs and TEs during most of the first half?  When our opponents'  start determining our QBs unforced errors, we need to refocus.

When it comes to overthrows in general, it's not the worst problem your QB can have. Luck's been called out at times for it, and last year the magnifying glass was on Flacco for overthrowing receivers.

Exactly...not that big of an issue.

 

Yes, it is something that Cam does at times.  Good thing is that it is very correctable with focus and coaching.  From what I have heard from Dorsey and Cam, they both recognize it and work on it every day.  We will see fewer and fewer of them as Cam continues to progress.

Also if you go on si.com and check out cam's passing splits, you can see exactly how many incompletions are ruled as overthrows. Cam's is a little high compared with other QBs but his underthrows are relatively low and his wide throws are average at worst.

Yep.  It would be MUCH worse if he was irratic with both overthrows and underthrows.  That is the mark of a bad QB.

 

Cam sometimes has a tendancy to not get his weight transferred to his front foot quick enough....which causes the overthrow.  Sometimes this is because of garbage around his feet and sometimes it is just a lapse in concentration.  But, it is ONE issue....and is easy to correct.

That is all I was pointing out. Caught flak for it though, and I am one of Cam's biggest supporters.

LaFell's hand are very small for a WR, and it makes him more prone to drop passes. It doesn't help matters that Cam rarely puts a soft touch on his passes. We're probably going WR in the upcoming draft so we won't have to worry about this much longer.

 

Is that true? That is a huge negative but I would imagine that Smitty's hands are somewhat undersized to a taller player and it doesn't hinder him.
