Cal Football Video: Quarterback Play Good and Bad in Spring Game

Bears head coach notes that the coaches now have a chance to address the mistakes in the remaining practices

Amid the background noise of people congregating on the field following Cal's Spring Game on Saturday, Bears head coach Justin Wilcox spoke about the play of the quarterbacks.

Wilcox was pleased that the quarterbacks made some difficult throws, but was disappointed that they missed some easy throws.

In general he thought his quarterbacks were in control of the offense, but the fact that he was not more effusive with his praise suggests there is plenty of room for improvement at the position.

Chase Garbers continued to work with the first-team offense, and he is clearly the leader in the competition to name a starting quarterback for next season, although a starter is not expected to be named by the coaches until fall camp. Devon Modster is the other quartrback considered to have a shot at the starting job, but he has not yet shown that he is ready to displace Garbers as the starter.

Wilcox noted that some of the bad pass plays on Saturday were not necessarily the fault of the quarterback. In one case, for example, a receiver ran the wrong route, forcing Garbers to take a sack.

The Bears have one more week of spring practice to try to iron out some of the issues as the quarterback competition continues.
