Tillman also mentioned, that the team feeds off the energy of Cam, when asked directly about Newton (and Stephen A., took away that Tillman was saying it's the opposite against Cutler, by Tillman's response). He also mentioned, he plays for Thomas Davis, Cam, Luke, CJ, etc., when mentioning they all play for each other.
Wilson's not a very good or even good pocket QB. He's probably not even average. He's quite poor. Everyone know this. So it's not saying much. He can't see over the defense. He's not patient in the pocket. He doesn't throw across the field well (though he can throw it up on the run well). And his first few years, he threw the ball very quickly (as SanFran and Wash did with Kaep and RG3), and relied heavily on his run game and defense. Willson, may not rely as much on those things a tad bit. But he's still much more comfortable throwing outside the pocket than in it. He just doesn't look as comfortable in the pocket, though not as bad as RG3 and Kaep. And please spare me the stats. RG3 and Kaepernick, were supposed to be QB gods, based off their "stats". However, when anyone with a critical eye saw those guys, you knew they were hiding being their systems and schemes for their QB. I'm not saying Wilson's not a decent to good QB. However, he relies heavily on his defense and a good run to make him look. And he's certainly not a polished pocket passer (never been). And he's certainly not as good in the pocket as Cam (stand back, going through his progressions, making decisions).
Since when? Wison's never been a good pocket passer since he's been in the league. He was actually spoon fed his first two years, and was asked to do very little. He's good, throwing the ball up on the run though. So, what are you saying.
Speaking about Seattle, and Russell Wilson. The guys at First Take (both Stephen A, and Skip) just acknowledged something may of us have known for a long time. They said, Russell Wilson's not a good pocket QB (skip called him subpar). And it's better to keep him in the pocket, instead of allowing him to run outside where he's much more lethal. They both acknowledge, Wilson can't see over the defense.
If you watch NFL games or highlights, we see an assortment of receivers make much tougher catches for TD's or spectacular long gains. Funchess, should have caught it. But he didn't. If Cam, throws that ball any higher, it's easier to pick off by a defender.
TD Dallas off the diving catch. The receiver, was literately parallel to the turf. Only Panther Receivers (and their defenders on the Huddle) require their QB to throw perfect passes all the time. This is even with defenders in the endzone, which you obviously have to throw away from (talking about you Funchess)!
If Seattle loses to Seattle in this scenario, then the Panthers can apply the proverbial knock out blow to keep Seattle out the playoffs (unless Arizona, Carolina, or Atlanta all stumble)! I wanna see the Panthers do it/this!
In fairness. One season doesn't prove one right or wrong. So I want to be fair to Kaepernick there. However, if your friend actually watched both QB's played (even factoring in homerism) he would have never held such a strong position. Because it was clear to anyone with two serviceable eyes, that Kaepernick was a jittery one read QB, who was a product of his system and Head Coach. He's just doesn't appear comfortable in the pocket, unless there's a lot of space in front of him (and even then, he may run for the yards).
Fair enough. But what happens after he gets the $$$? Considering, his personality, you just don't know. Would he be playing this well, if he got the money before the season started (knowing he had something to prove). Not saying, he'll flat out take it easy when he gets the money. However, you never know with personality types like him. Things usually go bad at some point with these free spirit types who didn't dominate from day one (note: guys like Lawrence Taylor, etc., were crazy, but crazy and great from the start, thus maintained their dominance).
I saw that to/again (from the past). They guy, would just take off an run after the first read. It was almost comical. I can't believe (again), idiots like Jaworski could even say a guy like this was better than Cam, when we all knew/saw the truth right before us!! And yes Huddle Police), we're unloading on "Kaep". Cause we all knew how it would look if you took Harbaugh away from him, and didn't replace him with something comparable.
Agreed. 49ers made his bed. Now sleep in it. I doubt they're going to bench him. But if so; what a reversal of fortunes from a guy (those who watched anyway) knew was a fraud, and product of his system/Harbaugh from the start.
Besides the previous comments. There's no guarantee that Seattle will be the "2nd Wildcard" if they don't win the division. Secondly, it's too early to start planning out the season. Funny things start to happen, when soft teams go in the road in the NFL (speaking about Atlanta).
