What do you attribute to Cams shaky start today...

Play calling always gets shitty after we cross the 50 and especially in the red zone.

I agree. Jags had two games to study about him where the last two didn't. Unfortuantly they were still able to stop our run game.

Today was our best day yet running the ball. We still were not great, but definitely better than the last two weeks. The run game was good enough to at least make the Jags think about it.

One thing that amazes me about Cam is the contrast between good and bad Cam (fortunately we've mostly seen good Cam) and how it can vary from series to series. When he's on, he looks as good as anyone, but when he misses his targets he misses BIG, man.

Another remarkable thing about the guy (and this is hugely encouraging) is nothing seems to rattle him, even the slightest bit. He can be playing like poo or playing great but every play is in the past and it's on to the next one. Love that about Cam.

Isn't that what gunslighters do? They are risk/reward people.

Yes, but the pressure of having to throw the ball 40 times a game does. Cam is doing great, but the run game will help him enjoy his playing time more.

I agree we need to try a little harder to establish a running game. In fact, I don't think we've tried at all to this point, and if we're going to win consistently we have to gain that balance. But I don't worry about Cam's psychology being asked to carry the offense, that kid's head is screwed on tight.

That's not what I was getting at, I was referring to his accuracy, not his confidence in taking risks.

In other words, I'm not saying "wow, I can't believe he just threw into triple coverage", more like, "wow, I can't believe he just threw that ball to the popcorn vendor".

Doesn't matter how he started. All that matters is how he finished it and that he didn't start doing even worse because his early performance. That is a winner in my book.

And Brady had 4 interceptions today.

Things happen from week to week. All in all, Cam did fine. Shaky start or not, he won, and he protected the football.

Given the opponents, this is actually what I expected last week's game to look like.

Conversely, I'd have expected last week's performance this week.

The NFL is the most unpredictable game there is. That's one of the things I love about it.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
