Caldwell To Work On Stafford’s Footwork This Offseason

Green Bay Packers v Detroit Lions

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.
