I decided to write up my own breakdown of the post route throw Cam made against Indy to Steve Smith for 30 yards, mostly in an effort to highlight ways in which his passing ability has been severely understated. I hope you guys find it informative.

This is the first time I've tried something like this, so. . .

And here you are at 2:54 AM commenting on dude for breaking down a play at the best of his ability. I prefer his post over yours.

I would disagree: he's simply having to deal with tighter windows and more difficult throws because teams gameplan around covering Steve Smith and taking away his downfield throws (because none of them imagined how deadly he could be throwing deep.)

My entire article illustrates how much he is already adapting to these new challenges, and making high-quality throws to counteract them.

He's not regressing: he's adapting.

Nice work. Does a pretty good job of illustrating just how complex this offense is and how much more we're asking of him than most rookie QB's. It's too bad the major networks don't really go over the x's and o's of football because scenarios such as this illustrate why a QB like Cam is superior to a QB like say... Dalton. Dalton will just throw the ball up for AJ Green to catch, whereas Cam is required to make some pretty difficult throws and make the right read every time.

If a rookie can pass for 200+ yards/game, rush for 50 yards/game, offense produce 20+ pts/game, with 0 turnovers, that results in a W, I'll take it. Those inflated 400+ yard games that diminish the impact of Dwill and Jstew aren't sustainable. No rookie can handle that kind of workload or pressure, too green.
