Cam excites the crowd by tucking the ball in and breaking through the line. That's one of the elements he brings.

@TRD I know some have been high on Cam as a passer and said he is the "best passer in 5 years" but I was not one of them. I am a big fan of Cam, I like his swag. But he is going to need time to adjust to the pace. Once he adjusts to the pace, I think his accuracy will come. I think his accuracy is a bit below average right now in part because he is having to rush his passes. Just give him a little time. It's on TC right now.

That's the right attitude to have.

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

Not only that, but it's pretty normal for the o-line to be a bit behind the D this early in camp

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.
