How can someone ask on one hand whether Cam makes his teammates better and also mention Ginn's huge leap from San Francisco and not put two and two together?

How can someone ask on one hand whether Cam makes his teammates better and also mention Ginn's huge leap from San Francisco and not put two and two together?

 

Valid, but overall it's a pretty fairly written article.

 

Don't actually know much about Ashley Fox, to tell the truth, but the whole of the article here is decent.

Every year is a new year that Cam has to "prove himself." Lazy Journalism is lazy.

 

You don't think it's fair to say that having to start over with a rebuilt receiving corps (probably without being able to work with them in OTAs because of the ankle) is a challenging scenario?

 

I don't necessarily read it being said that he has to "prove himself" as it is whether or not he can show he's on the same level as a guy like Tom Brady (who's mentioned in this article frequently, which I find annoying).

Do these people who praise Brady nonstop ever actually watch him during a game? Dude rips heads off all the damn time.

I'd prefer Cam's sad towel to Brady's shouting matches anyday.

I guess we should have kept McClain and Fua because they were "familiar" and had "chemistry" with the D line.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
