8-1 camp thread

410 posts in this topic

All I'm saying is I was promised a better passer, pure passer, than anyone who has come out recently. Coupled with all the work he's done with Weinke and Dorsey, I didn't expect Clausen level of play. He knows 90% of the playbook so I expect him to know where his receivers are and what his progressions should be.

I feel cheated and lied to.

Unless of course everyone blew up every report about him this offseason just so they could try and defend the pick and make it seem like he wasn't a project.

I mean considering jimmy clausen has a year of experience under his belt and cam is on his level as a passer, I'm not too upset about that. it's the very beginning of TC, they are all still getting use to the plays, they are all learning because it's a new play book, but the fact that he is holding his own already is a good sign to me. he might even get better as practices go on.

Once the O-Line gets accustomed to being back together again I think all the quarterbacks will start performing better because they will have more time to throw.

That's the right attitude to have.

It just wasn't what I was told all offseason.

cam seems to be running a lot. that's all fine and dandy, but I want to hear about him scrambling and hitting a receiver down teh field. the kid has fantastic pocket awareness, he just needs to translate that into looking downfield for the open receiver instead of taking off and running when pressured.

He just broke off a 55 yard TD run. Apparently he is more mobile than you promised me.

You are welcome.

@ramey42j: All out blitz at Newton...he tucks it and wouldve scored a 55 yard td run. Broke down two defenders.

Sounds like Cam is just busting the defense with the runs right now, I want to here about some pass plays though to.

Cam completes all his passes first time through. Clausen back in and promptly puts 89 in a position to get killed. Awful throw.

Big Gary B a winner tonight.

Clausen running the 1's looks like it could be short lived. Noticeable difference

Steve Smith gets up shaking his head after Clausen throws behind him and is nearly picked off.

Painfully obvious cam is already ahead of Clausen. It's night and day.

Same was said in non contact practices plus he's had 10000 tutors all off season and already knows 90% of the playbook.

This kid has no excuses.

We know what to expect with Jim, we were promised change with Cam.

He is supposed to be a better passer than anyone who came out in the last 5 years.

WTF are you talking about?

The biggest knocks on Cam coming out were about his abilities as a passer. You may have forgotten that because of all of the nuthugging that has gone on around here.

Cam has accuracy issues and velocity issues. However his natural talents make it likely that he can be "taught up".

Best physical talent in 5 years, maybe. Best passer, no.

Who told you that he would look great in his very first padded practice? :D
