Trying to force Cam into being a dink and dunk QB is not gonna work

Recommended Posts

Cam only has 5 attempts of passes more than 40 yards this year (from what I've counted), I think Alex Smith has more than. He's not a dink and dunk QB

 

They need to let him throw deep and make him run 10 or more times next week.

I don't know if you noticed, but he was far more accurate on the short passes than deep so far.

He's barely attempted deep passes. And most of them have been to Kelvin and Funchess, put Byrd out there and let him go to work.

3 out his 4 picks have been on passes under 15 yards

That's more on decision making rather than accuracy. Cam not having the reps obviously affected him.

And deep ball issues (which 5 attempts isn't a large enough sample size) has to do with personal. And its just not the picks, his screen passes are never sharp or on time

I agree.

this new evolved "offense" absolutely sucks.

We went backwards. Devolved. This picture rings truer now more than ever

Our coaching staff is ill equipped to handle talent...

When you haven't thrown in 6 months and you aren't able to practice, it's going to be incredibly hard to learn during actual games.

He's had 6 years of practice reps at an NFL level, and 3 years with Funchess. Plenty of reps checking down to various backs, plenty of reps to journeyman WRs and TEs.

You can't tell me his decision making and ability to get the ball to open receivers is that messed up because of missing some time.

    So...Cam is having trouble throwing the ball. Let's make him throw it farther, and more often. Then. Let's run him more. 

 

    Sound strategy. (That's sarcasm for you folks who are taking everything so cereally right now.)

I think that's the million dollar question.

Cam is a playmaker, if we want to go dink and dunk (which it looks like we do) then we might be better off with a Sam Bradford.

This isn't a knock on Cam this just isn't his style, this would be like asking Tom Brady to become a running QB. 

Cam wants to make plays and Cam likes to take his shots. By sticking him in this type of offense he could feel like he's being bottled up. Cam is someone who needs to get into a rhythm when it comes to throwing, this offense prevents him from ever being able to find that rhythm. It's like asking a jump shooter knock down a shot late in the 4th after not touching the ball all night. 

Then add in the fact that he gets hit every time he drops back and things become impossible. As long as Kalil is our LT, dink and dunk might be our only option because Cam just doesn't have the time to take shots downfield.
