We've had some steals in the 7th from Bruce Miller to Trenton Brown to AC now. Who's next?

regarding his footwork. he seems to start off with his right foot back now before the snap, not his left like in the video

I thought this was basic DB coaching/technique? If "most teams" (including the Niners) are teaching the opposite, that is ridiculous.

Do you know who was talking in that video? I love reading stuff from James Light, until he made his blog private. I'll give him a follow. Didn't know he was on twitter.

kind of related, did you see the first play in the ATL vs PHI game? Foles severely underthrew the deep pass and was rewarded when Torrey Smith slowed down and had the CB run into him - 42 yard PI penalty.

When coach is talking "plant 5" hes referring to the back foot's position (5 o clock). "you moved 5 two times in a row" (at :08 second mark when JG plants at 5, then picks his foot up and re-plant at 5). He's working on reducing unnecessary movement when throwing to his left.

I like how they're working on shortening all motion and compacting the footwork to speed everything up. It's like when I'm teaching guitar and bass I teach my students to lift their fingers as minimally off the fretboard as they can to learn to keep everything as close as possible to keep speed up.

Same idea. It makes me happy because CK's release and footwork never improved in this area. He always elongated everything in his throwing motion.

Yeah, we were taught in high school to attack through the receivers arms when out of phase. But, you do see a lotnof teams DB's look like they're hacking down in arms in this position.

It's good that he's the type to seek out individual coaching. I wonder if he'll be doing that this offseason. This type of throw across the body is what he was working on in that video. So good.

the order in which leg he pushes off with on his dropback just confuses me. most right-handed QB's do it the opposite way

I just watched a few snaps from this weekend's games. Matt Ryan and Brady do what Jimmy does (left foot is forward in shotgun). Ben R and Brees have their right foot forward. Don't know what that means.

FYI. He's been working with that QB coach in the video since his last year of high school... Pretty sure he'll continue the work
