Anyone think Cam is feeling the pressure after the performances that Mallett and Gabbert put on so far (moreso Mallett)?

Dude looked pretty damn good in his debut.

They will all be forever linked but do you think it adds pressure to Cam for his debut?

not as much really. The pressure would be more if they were tearing it up in the regular season and he was bombing it. Not saying he will not be nervous on saturday but I dont think so.

From what I've seen of Cam, confidence doesn't seem to be an issue.

based on reports and interviews, I doubt they are putting more pressure on him than he is already putting on himself.

Mallett was basically going against 2nd and 3rd depth defenses, Gabbert really didn't look like anything special to me. Plus the regular season is more brutal than pre-season.

Not at all. Gabbert didn't do much.

That said, u expect Cam to really struggle in at least 2 of 4 of his preseason outings. This will not be an easy call for Rivera; I can gaurantee it.

Gabbert did awesome in my opinion.. if it weren't for 3 drops by his WRs then he would have went 12/16 for like 150 yards. I know there were no TDs but 75% comp is really impressive.. along with his decision making.

Teams barely gameplan in the preseason

So will Cam

Not really pressure, but if there was any it would only be to the extent Cam can't wow people with his running ability. I don't think a single analyst would have called Cam a better pure passer than any of those guys. But he was drafted #1 because he was a decent passer + a freak athlete.

Those guys came out and put up solid performances and now it's Cam's turn.

Put it this way, if Cam doesn't show out, expect a few more "ESPN hates us and Cam" threads on Sunday morning.

I think it will be interesting to watch all of them throughout their careers considering how much debate their was and how we admittedly took the biggest risk for the possible biggest reward.

Mallett has/had upper first round talent and would have been taken early if he wasn't batpoo crazy/fuged in the head. The fact that he slid alllll the way into round three speaks volumes about his interviews/psych evals/background checks.

With more experience dropping back and being around the org and QB he is, I'm not that surprised he's sprinting out of the gate so far. He probably will look better than Newton for a while.

Hopefully just for a while, though.
