I used to think the exact same thing Scot but recent history just doesn't back it up.
I now think your college offense is the single most overrated factor in the entire evaluation process. There just isn't anything to back up the claim.
Don't get me wrong, I know why people say it and think it. Like I said, I thought and said the same thing. But my opinion on it over the last 4 years has done a complete 180.
There IS more to learn if you are going from a spread offense to a traditional pro-style offense. The terminology and pace is MUCH different.
However, coming from a spread offense or a pro-style offense does seem to be less of an issue with the early success of QB's like Bradford, Freeman, Big Ben, etc.
Is it that the transition is less meaningful? Or, does it say something about the QB's listed above? Hard to tell.
From everything I have heard and read, Cam is a very, very hard worker. I hope all of these are true.
If he puts in the work and makes the transition....combine this with his physical skills and attributes....he definitely could be something special.
I am hoping that he does......he is my QB and I will support and cheer for him 100%.
