Yea, I knew he was a CB at LSU. Thought he was changed to S in Arizona though. Oh well, he's a good player. At Nickle CB I can see him being like Munnerlyn. edit: I looked it up, he is a FS. misleading list is misleading.
Yea, that year he finally got good at run defense was the year he got up to around 295 from what I read at the time. The last year or so I think he was playing at 285 and an unstoppable machine in both the run game and pass. His happy medium weight.
My choice is pretty similar to the "decision making" one, but more specifically it's his patience. He's moving around in the pocket more and waiting for the right choice to appear (as opposed to making the wrong choice, previously he was making the choice that was the best at the time, but not in the end...small distinction). That's what I think has improved the most: patience.
That would be great. He's 275? Doesn't look it. As quick as he is at 275 is awesome. edit: looked it up, he's 254 according to NFL.com. a good 30 lbs lighter than Hardy when he was here lol. explains his quickness. hopefully he can bulk up a little
Yea He needs to be filling Stewart's rookie year role. He needs 10 or so carries a game, and not waiting til our last seven or our last quarter. We know Stewart used to get stronger as the game went on and that would be a reason against this, but it doesn't seem to be the case this year for whatever reason.
I'd have to see those numbers on the OL. Even if they do say that, stats lie. Our OL is ok at pass protection (Cam makes them look better than they are) and they're pretty damn bad at run blocking. One good player does not make a good supporting cast, that is a supporting actor. Not even gonna comment on this one, lol. Stewart used to be good, I dunno about now. His vision seems off. He's a couple good runs, but a lot of running into defenders too. Our RBs ain't doing anything this year so far.
No, you don't have that right. Teams can win with a poor supporting cast around the premier player. Seattle had a poor supporting cast around Lynch, still won. Brady had poor supporting cast around him when Gronk was hurt, still won. It's not as common as complete units being successful, but it's not a direct correlation between the supporting cast and the success of the team (especially when the other side of the ball is a complete unit).
On the discussion about the run game and whether we should consider Cam's contribution to it: our run game is BAD. I don't think there's any other way to put it. I'd concede Cam's designed runs should be considered, but most of his run yards come from busted plays/scrambles.
