Cam’s 16 throws before halftime after the apparent foot injury

Recommended Posts



Good god, the only 3 that went to the right were absolutely tragic(not counting the batted screen and the one where he got hit).

Left and middle were perfectly fine. A little off on some but all catchable.

Do we believe that the foot injury is enough to explain that problem?

I can’t think of a single reason why a sprain to his lead foot would cause him to be so wild throwing right while being completely fine throwing to the middle and left.

It definitely could be the problem. Still is that a good thing? Foot injuries don't heal fast.

I’m just posting this to allow you guys to analyze it. I’m not ready to conclude that the foot injury played a major part in any of this. There were some good throws, some horrible ones, and a couple line breakdowns.

Based on what I know of passing mechanics, I can't either.

So then the next step would be to ask if it's not that, what else could it be?

I have a theory that it’s based on his footwork where he opens his body with his lead leg when he throws rather than stepping into it so a throw to the right opens his body to the target even more than it would when he throws middle or left which means it’s more of an arm throw and his shoulder can’t handle the extra load.

He still throws off that back foot.  Throws to the left he plants the left and corks it.  Throws to the right he pushes off that back foot and away it goes!

I'm not sure that would explain it.  Why would it only effect his throw in only one direction?  It should effect his throw no matter what direction he throws if his stepping into it?
