(Aside from when he missed a open Naanee by throwing behind him)
....but I am trying to rationalize why Cam had a sup par game
From what I have seen (even throughout the preseason) is that Cam does better against 3-4 defenses, and has his poor games against 4-3 defenses. I hope this is just coincidence. Just trying to stay positive.
I thought Cam's play against the Jags was spotty because of: being indecisive at the top of his drop (especially on play-action)and lacking a sense of urgency getting to the checkdowns which caused him to be off rhythm/late which caused him to rush his throws which resulted in off target passes.
Could his rhythm be thrown off by the the 2-deep zone? Maybe.
Cam being off rhythm is part the of my concern facing the Bears Tampa-2.
Thus far Cam/Chudz and have been in keeping with their SanDiego Coryell roots as a vertical downfield passing team.
The Bears represent a unique threat because there defense is designed to take away the vertical passing game and they bring pressure with 4.
This forces a QB to checkdown at the same time the QB needs to be diligent with their eye as the underneath zone defenders will key on his eyes.
If there ever was a game to feature the TEs down the seams and to encourage Cam to pick his spots to break contain and try to breakdown the coverage with his run threat its gonna be sunday.
