Anyone else not like Cam being in the shotgun almost every play? I liked him in the first drive of the Green Bay game where they lined up in the I-form doing lots of play action and rolling him out? He looked awesome and was on target every throw. Seems like with lots of routes going on the game speeds up on him.

Its the NFL. He's a rookie. And Tom Brady threw 4 interceptions today. Nobodies losing their minds over that. It happens. But We won and Cam will get better.

I think today is more indicative of the cam we can expect see week in week out this season. Some good plays, some bad plays, a relatively low completion % as well as some moments where you just have to shake your head because few athletes can do the things he can do on the field. The future is bright but we need to keep our short term expectations in check. He's really gotta make more accurate throws- some of those should have been interceptions. At the same time a few better efforts from receivers, a certain call goes our way, and he would have had a statistically pretty good game.

You could tell after the last game Cam was real upset. I think he was over thinking today.

Jacksonville dared us to run and we still didn't have a ton of success with it. They were dropping a ton into coverage, including two guys on smith the whole game.

I'm a huge Cam fan, I'll just say it, and be honest about it.

He was just off today. He will fix it.

The only two things that bug me so far is it seems like when it's a designed run play for him it's pretty obvious and always up the middle and that's on Chud. The other thing is when Cam runs, he should just run. This isn't the SEC, if you are going to run, then put the ball away and turn on the jets...you aren't going to stutter step too many people in the NFL.

He is an amazing athelete and I'm glad he's here.

Look at the thread title genious. It's asking what you think made Cam not look good. EVERYONE here is speculating. You don't know if he was having just a rookie moment or if his foot was really bothering him either.

Irony- insulting someone while misspeliing the word genius.

I don't know if the ankle was bothering him or not, but something seemed abnormally off. Hopefully he corrects it by next week :cam:

a rookie qb planting his foot with a recent minor ankle tweak on a slip and slide football field in torrential downpour

Stop making excuses for him.

It had nothing to do with his foot....it had nothing to do with the play calling...it had to do with the fact that he is a ROOKIE.

He had one of those days that a rookie has. He was throwing high and pressing too much in the game. It is going to happen.

Not really anything to worry about.

However, I am NOT HAPPY with the play calling.

It seems that Chud is getting too pass happy and completely abandoning the run game. We are NOT a balanced team and that puts way too much pressure on Cam's shoulders.

This WAS the game to work on the run game....and he was slinging the ball around in a damn monsoon.

It was like watching the Anti-Fox out there today. Problem is that abondoning the run game is nearly as bad and dangerous as Fox's abandoning of the passing game.
