  1. I've read and heard from numerous pundits that Cam is not a rhythm or anticipation thrower. Would that not also play a part in the types and combination of routes Shula can call if Cam is not comfortable making certain throws? Not to mention trusting the receivers to run more complicated routes or heaven forbid an option route where Cam and the receiver have to read the defense the same way.
  2. I'm not arguing Ginn didn't have iffy hands. He dropped a lot of well thrown balls, he also dropped balls thrown so hard they bounced 10 yards off his chest.You know what helps guys with iffy hands? Passes thrown with appropriate velocity.
  3. Throwing a catchable ball is a good thing. Making it more difficult for your receivers to catch because you can't or won't put touch on a throw is not a good thing.
  4. He has the same concerns about Fournette that I've seen. Stick him deep in the backfield with a runway to get started and watch him work. Have him taking handoffs in the shotgun or having to work through traffic without that head of steam and he's not the same back. Which style of run game do we have?
  5. He weighs 273lbs, since when is that light for a DE?
  6. Seattle has had a terrible oline for years and they didn't resign him. Denver had a terrible oline last year and they don't want him back either. There's probably a reason these teams with just as many issues as us on the oline didn't want this guy back.
  7. You guys have seen where Ron said he expects Cam to fight him in "evolving" the offense right? Does anyone not think maybe we call the patterns and plays we do because those are what Cam is comfortable with? Cam was praised over and over again for supposedly audibling constantly and calling great plays last year. Now this year Shula sucks and apparently Cam forgot how to audible? Short throws are a weakness of Cam's because it requires good ball placement without throwing it on a rope and touch which he struggles to consistently do well. So he's probably likely to avoid those throws or changing to plays consistently where many of his options are short throws.
  8. When you are let go by two teams (Seattle, Denver) with terrible lines it doesn't instill much confidence in him being an upgrade.
  9. I'm willing to bet the franchise left tackle is last on the list of folks to cut/trade for cap room.
  10. Can we really be making fun of other teams QB's when we had the 28th ranked QB with the lowest completion % in the league and it wasn't even close (3.7% from 2nd worst for qualified qbs).
  11. Dwight Freeney 6'1, Robert Mathis 6'2, Vic Beasley 6'2, Von Miller 6'3, Cliff Avril 6'3, Cameron Wake 6'3, Khalil Mack 6'3, Olivier Vernon 6'2. I don't think height has a whole lot to do with a defensive end/OLB's effectiveness.
  12. Some of his arguments don't really look good to me when he's calling a ball Benjamin is trying to catch with one hand because the other arm is being held while he has to go to the ground because the ball is low a bad play by him is kind of bias looking to me.
  13. I meant just how often is there a short option in the passing game. People are always complaining that every route is down field and I'm wondering how often that is actually true opposed to simply Cam not throwing the short option.
  14. Further expanding on the wide receivers. I'm curious if the supposed lack of separation is a constant thing or if the receivers are getting separation but not the ball at the opportune time. Also how often are we really passing with no short options?
  15. People do realize if Peters hits the market you could be in a bidding war with half a dozen other teams right? There are 32 starting left tackle spots and nowhere near 32 starter quality tackles in the league.
