Cade McNamara weighs in on QB battle at Michigan
On Tuesday, Cade McNamara was at Big Ten Media Day and he told reporters that he is “in a really good place” and that he is not allowing “negativity” into his mind.
“I’m in a really good place right now,” Michigan quarterback Cade McNamara told the media at Big Ten Media Day.
“I think my footwork has changed a lot, I feel like I have a better base right now. I feel really confident in my throwing right now.”
McNamara added that everything he does is for the sake of winning.
“Anything I do is gonna be for the sake of the team winning and that’s what’s most important on my mind. What comes with that is having good relationships with my teammates,” McNamara said. “I take a lot of pride in what I bring to the team from a leadership standpoint, so allowing negativity or anything like that, I don’t think that’s healthy for the team or really for myself either.”
“Any quarterback’s job should be focused to make sure the team wins. I think that whole group is confident that that’s our mindset, and if it’s not then we’ll change it,” McNamara said.
