the one problem I see with Cam

I think he's a damn good qb, no bones about it. I just don't feel comfortable with him in the fourth quarter. Back in the day when we were a score down in the fourth; Delhomme would find a way to march us down and find a way to score. It's almost like Cam does so much dureing the game he runs out of gas in the fourth. I know he didn't have a full off season and is not yet accustomed to the rigorous schedule of a pro. I hope he figures it out though.:confused:

These things will come with time. He is a rookie that we are asking to try and score 30 points a game to win. That would be hard on Peyton Manning let alone a rookie QB.

I know people get irritated when you pull out the youth card but it is the truth. He is going to learn more and more as he develops. He will get there.

Can anyone provide me with any proof that Cam's play trails off in the fourth quarter or is that too much to ask of the huddle?

I remember several times where Jake marched us down and put us in position to kick field goals as well. Cam's done that twice that year ...in the 4th quarter :beatdeadhorse5:

They haven't turned to wins, but he has been really close

Arizona - ended taking shots at the endzone

GB - Similar, coming from behind

Chicago- same thing

Jacksonville- won the game

NO- took the lead in the fourth, sputtered last second drive

Atlanta (recent) - struggled a lot, a good kicker takes the lead

Minnesota- Same as above

Lions- Tied the game, threw a pick

Washington- best fourth quarter probably

He needs to get better, but I think it's the lulls the offense goes through before the crunch time that kills the team. It isn't all on him, the team commits mistakes via penalty that destroy our momentum. For instance the two holding calls versus the Falcons in the third.

I contribute a lot of our 4th qtr woes, to the lack of having a power running game.

The whole offense just can't go into "ice the game mode" properly. Its either go full tilt or completely melt down. No inbetween.

I remember quite distinctly the whole offense not being able to finish out games not just Cam. In fact wasn't there a couple games where receivers were being hit in the head and the Oline wasn't doing poo after half time?

It is definitely a problem but I see it as a team thing more than Cam. Cam is a rookie and things will come in time.

Nothing wrong with this thread, it's kind of ironic you knocking on someone just expressing their thoughts. It's football talk and I honestly get tired of reading only good things about Cam. He isn't perfect as you said and this is a forum where we talk about all aspects (or should at least) football and football players.

Yeah, you're right. I shouldn't have posted in this thread. Just kind of tired of the same old same old. Don't mind me... Leaving now

It would help if defense and special teams could, you know, contribute.
