New Lions head coach Jim Caldwell plans to work on Matthew Stafford‘s footwork according to Peter King of SI.com.
Caldwell said he’s already watched every single throw Stafford made during a 2013 season that saw him complete just 58.5 percent of his passes and throw 29 touchdowns against 19 interceptions.
Stafford’s oft-discussed mechanics will be addressed.
“The great majority of poor throws—people look at the arm, and that’s important obviously, but I think footwork is the key. … We’ll work on it with Matthew, and he will do them flawlessly,” Caldwell said. Stafford has been adamant that he does not need a tutor but visual evidence says otherwise. He will have little choice but to heed the advice of his new head coach.
