Notes on the Cam video not about Cam
Posted 08 August 2011 - 05:37 PM
It is a bit slow, so I was watching the Cam plays from Fan Fest (posted on this clip from another thread--I appreciate this film and I am sure others do as well) trying to get some perspective on the other players besides Cam.
Here are some things I noticed:
:03 The cutback was made possible because Ugo Chinasa (sp) an undrafted rookie from OK st. Gets sucked inside badly, even after Hartsock motions over. He was not stunting inside. He is high and looks slow--probably trying to think on his feet, something that hurts most rookies. Not good though.
:35 Neblett at the nose does a nice job creating a pile up
1:04 Fua abandons his gap and chases the play as if he has contain. Bernadeau was supposed to block him in the event the RB cuts back, but he can't get to Fua he leaves so quickly. Fua shows good quickness and hustle, just poor gap responsibility. He doesn't do it any more from what I can see.
1:42 McClain is at the left DT (3) and Fua is on the right (1). Fua does a great job. He has to attack the outside shoulder to contain because the DE is looping inside on a stunt. Fua gets a good push on Garry Williams. McClain, meanwhile, takes on a doubleteam block and stands his ground well. This play encourages me.
1:55 McClain is now on the right and Fua on the left. THey both get good pressure and collapse the pocket. No end help here.
2:11- Fua and McClain are back to being rookies. They cross on a stunt and trip each other. Note Ziemba--he has been doing a good job at RT.
2:21 Very impressed with Kendric Burney on this play. He has zone responsibilites. Naanee crosses his face and Burney releases him, noticing Barnidge swinging into the flat. He rather quickly (4.72?) redirects and bats the ball away. Sweet play.
3:10 Watch Norwood, the RDE. Wow. talk about picking up the back out of the backfield. We could have blitzed Davis and Bernadeau all day. That was terrible.
3:20 Norwood again. Nice job. Gross has him where he wants him, but the inside pressure forces Cam too deep. I like Norwood's quickness on these two plays.
3:48 Notice Everette Brown at RDE--he is standing in a 2 point stance. What is that all about? Were we in a 3-4?
THat is all for now. Will watch JC tape and see if I see anything. Hard to see #s.

Excellent analysis. Look forward to more in the future.
I don't know if I would consider doing a play-by-play from a youtube video an excellent analysis..

And the next play he pulled a good one on Gross

on the other hand he still stares down his receivers.

Unless Cam is a preseason beast I'm all for Anderson starting. We didn't sign him for nothing.
I'd still like him to sit out a few weeks, I just don't think he's quite there yet.

After re-watching, Rivera loves to blitz. If TD can get healthy he could be a monster in this defense with his speed and athletic ability
