"Cam was forced to use other targets...he's dishing out the ball equally. That's one of the things that's helped change his game." I think that's overblown. Any QB who wants to keep his job works on finding open receivers. Of course Smith and KB were prime targets. Isn't that the case with most #1 receivers? I think Cam would have worked on and refined his game the same way regardless of whether KB was playing or not.
It's not hate, just disrespect and mostly due to our history. We've had 5 double digit seasons in the win column and the rest have been .500 or under. We're perceived as an organization that wins once in a while despite ineptitude in the FO, and that's been true to an extent. You have to play your way to respect as an organization and we're still in the process. We now have the best management we've ever had, as far as putting together a team that can hold up over time, but it's going to take consistent winning to change media perception.
Sure it works with Cam behind center, but what happens if he gets hurt and is less mobile, or worse, DA has to take over. He's perfectly capable of being a good QB, but he doesn't present the same problem for defenses. I guarantee that Carroll isn't happy that Wilson is their leading rusher.
