    Cam when he has time and a somewhat open receiver is a thing of beauty 85% of the time I'd say. As good as anybody in the league. A lot of people look at stuff like completion percentage and don't take into account not only drops, but pressure/hit while throwing, receiver not making a great play, etc.

    If you think guys with great completion percentage/better than Cam's percentage got there without receivers pulling down enough balls they had no business catching and having better protection than Cam, then I can safely say that your opinion doesn't matter because you don't understand what all goes into a QB "looking" good on paper.

    I'd take Cam over any QB in the league and that's not just my homerism talking. He's not the best passer in the league, but I'd say he's unquestionably the most versatile and dangerous when the team around him does their respective jobs. Give the guy a good OL and hope that Funchess and Brown both emerge big so he has 3 solid receivers to go alongside Olsen....Cam is breaking at least one record this season. In some way.

    Rules of engagement are clear. If a suspect is wielding a deadly weapon in a threatening manner, which is articulable so that any reasonable person could see that a threat of serious bodily injury and/or death to the officer or a third party was imminent, then deadly force is authorized.

    Tell me, how do you alter that more?

    I'm just saying, he should have been ahead of Julio Jones. Luke is more important to his team, is undoubtedly the best at his position, has a higher football IQ, and is just a better player. Sure, Julio is an athlete, and sure, he has flashy plays....but how do you justify him being ahead of the greatest LB in the league? Especially when Julio is only ARGUABLY top 3.

    Our BIGGEST weakness all of last year, the thing that truly held us back, was shooting. We needed a pure shooter. We needed somebody who could go out and put up 25+ with ease, particularly with perimeter shots.

    What do we do? Dump our project big man in Vonleh and pick up a new project big man. And one who doesn't want us. While there were GREAT shooters in front of us.

    Seriously?

  7. lightsout added a post in a topic What happened to Al Jefferson?   

    Al is a double edged sword, really. He gives us a big man down low that is hard to stop. But, as pointed out, he just doesn't fit with the other 4 guys on the court at any given time. Sure, if we had a sure-fire 3-point shooter to kick to on the wing whenever they collapse on Al, it'd work better. We wouldn't have to go from fast paced, efficient passing to a snail's pace with Al working his man over in the post for 10 seconds. But, we don't have that right now. I think we just have to keep an eye on his minutes. Pepper him in and give Vonleh and Biyombo more minutes, because they're the future here. Jefferson is a stop-gap to develop those two more without throwing them to the wolves and when he was picked up, he was sorely needed.


    Long term, Jefferson isn't a problem. He'll be gone and I think our offense will be more solid for it, both in his helping guys like Vonleh with their post work, and with just giving the young guys a chance to develop while doing good work on the boards to give us a chance to win now instead of just saying "we'll win whenever we get our young guys developed". And in that, as said a million times, our tempo on offense will pick up. Because honestly, our offense is fuging boring a lot of the time. Nice to see Al get like, 3 straight buckets down low every quarter, but still, I want us playing to our strengths. Efficient passes, get good mid-range looks, take the occasional 3, drive the lane with guys like Hendo. That's our identity and we need to stick to that.

    Nah, we'll start Marvin with Zeller and Al. Then, we'll rotate in Taylor and Stephenson as we need to. This is why we need PJ and Hendo rotating at the 2, with Stephenson coming in at that spot if we need him to.


    But we won't do that. Because this is Gary Neal Month.

    PJ, regardless of how inconsistent he may be with his shot, is AT LEAST as good as Gary Neal, with the added benefit of not being Gary fuging Neal. Play him. At least when he shoots it looks nice and he can't be any worse than what's on the floor. This team needs a spark in the backcourt. No reason to not rotate in PJ at the 2. Hell, play him in the high post for all I care. Do something with the kid.
