Cool. I'll be sending you a PM. Not to get all techie in a football forum, because I know jack squat....

But can I run a Happauge on an Apple CPU? My wife just got a new one (I footed the bill) and have heard doing the TV video to CPU on a DELL can crash the dell.

I use a Mac Book Pro, so yeah you can.

Looking at the first td to smith, if Smith has lost any speed, he hasn't lost much. He had to slowup and wait for the pass, and still outran the corner to the endzone.

There were also at least 4 passes that, although they weren't great passes, probably should have been/could have been caught by his receivers. Hit their hands but they dropped em.

He still need to get a little better with his accuracy. A couple of great catches were an eyelash away from skipping off the top of receivers hands and into the defenders hands.

But that is just nit picky stuff. He was electric on Sunday.

Cannot wait to hear the crowd at BOA Stadium this weekend when he takes the field.

His completion to Smith down the middle at 1:47 in the 4th would have been his 4th touchdown, but he threw it just a little too high...

I couldn't be more impressed with a rookie. He looks WAY more accuarate than Delhomme, but seems to possess all of Jake's intangible qualities as well. I want to say alot more, but i will hold my tongue since he has only played one NFL game.

*edit. another thing that impressed me was his willingness to go downfield. He made a few completions to Shockey and Olsen when he needed to, but his first read seems to be the downfield ones. I like that alot.

His out routes are amazing. I remember when he couldnt throw them for $hit. He does need to be careful with his stuff down the middle though.

Also Cam has a killer pump fake. It isn't Jake Delhomme '08 San Diego, but I saw a DL stop, and jump up in the air on one of his pump fakes.

You shouldn't cut out the sacks, actually they're pass attempts and while they're no good it gives a 100% accurate tape. Awesome job, though.

A few things I didn't really take notice of during the game because I was too busy being excited that I am just noticing from Cam.

His 2nd pass was good. Yeah, it was incomplete. But with coverage, if he tries to stick it in there, it may get picked. He throws it high and tells the receiver to go get it or nobody gets it. Solid decision.

4th pass, on the roll-out. GREAT throwing mechanics. Got his feet set, timed it well, good looking ball. Just a good job all around. He messes up his footwork on that throw and it may sail on him or bounce off the turf. Somebody has corrected a preseason issue!

5th and 7th throws, good job scanning and buying time with his legs. That is big time, especially with the heat he is sure to face this season.

8th throw, if he steps up, he might have completed it. He sat back too deep in the pocket. Take a couple short steps up, have total space, ball has a shorter distance to travel.

2nd TD to Smith was great. It was a double move, he pumps and gets the bite, looks off to the other side, then comes back to Smith. I haven't seen this mentioned on here and I know I noticed it during the game, but forgot about it until now. Really good job.

Just a few tid-bits I noticed. Really impressive looking back on it now, even moreso than it was initially on Sunday.

You know... LaFell actually looked ok. There was only one throw I can blame on him for not catching.

The 4:30 mark was one of my favorite. It wasn't his best throw, but he pumped faked left, causing the right DE to jump in the air, and then he turned right and threw it down field to Olsen.

It was just nice to see him manipulate the DE with his pump fake.
