this game is from week 6 last year
the play was incomplete but you can actually see how hes front foot was planted TOWARDS his target
heres from the same game. this one was a complete pass BOMB to LLOYD, notice his front foot was towards his target
see his foot here almost parallel with his back foot? the pass sailed to boldin.
last night game. see his footwork? same as the giants game. parallel with his backfoot, heck you can even see his shoulder opening up in the middle of the field and the target is outside and of course the throw is low
now during this drop back, DILFER praised him on his location of the ball, even though its incomplete. loaded backfoot, front foot planted and pointing to the target, and see how his front foot just complete the whole passing motion?
i know its week 1 and there's a whole season to improve.
like i said im glad hes going thru his progression and working the pocket. the biggest criticism he had last year was his mechanics and accuracy and its still there.
