Whats Up With All This Cam Slump Garbage?


31 posts in this topic

In various threads across the interweb, I've noticed a tremendous amount of "Cam is just gonna fall off this year." "Cam is going to fall back down to earth, hard!" NOT HAPPENING. " I dont mind making the "bold prediction". People can't help but downplay everything he has done and will do. He shut those butt hurts up his rookie year, he's gonna do it this year. Will it be a 4000+ passing year? probably not... but hes going lead a winning team and make a playoff push, and that's what every team wants. I say hes going to finish the year a top 10 QB. Haters gonna Hate!

Thoughts, predictions?

WARNING: (in case you haven't noticed) Cam circle jerk thread time.

I suspect that like Smitty, Cam feeds off those naysayers who declare he "can't" do something. All people like that do are provide tinder for the fire that burns in the kid, and that means someone is likely to get torched.

I am expecting Cam to make some strides in his second season, but I think, much like Mr. Scot, that Cam's style of play is always going to lead to high risk- high reward games.

However, I do think he has the potential to be the most explosive, play making quarterback this league has ever seen.

Even at the possible worst, he would be an average passer and an elite runner. Which would always make him a top 10 QB.

If he continues to progress passing, to very good passer and an elite runner, then he comes a perennial top 5.

If he continues to progress even further, to an elite passer and elite runner, then he is the best QB in the league.

So far, with the continuous work he has put in, he has given me no reason to believe he cannot become the best QB in the league.

We are going to have someone really exciting to watch for a long time.

I don't really have problems with people thinking he will regress a little because it very well may happen (defenses have more time to gameplan and have seen his tape).

With that being said, I hear absolutely nothing about Andy Dalton having a 2nd year slump which to me is utter bulls**t. Some of the stuff i've read has been talking about the Bengals as a team who can get off to a fast start and really put pressure on Pitt and Baltimore.

I don't understand how Dalton can be seen as an unshakable 2nd year player, yet Cam will see a slump. If one is going to have a sompmore slump, then the other is going to encounter the same thing.

Well, a large majority of 2nd year players struggle at QB.....so that isn't really Cam specific. Just playing the odds.

I think the easiest way to avoid that is to add new players and looks on offense. Players look to be the same so Chud needs to really do a good job this year.

A heavy repeat of last years offense will let defenses really key in on picking apart Cams game

You just shouldn't be concerned with threads throughout the internet, they really have no bearing on how things will play out.

Sophomore slumps aren't uncommon, but I suspect Cam will be ok this season. His demeanor is similar to Smitty's, (like someone already mentioned- chip on his shoulder.) and with Chud's creative and aggressive playcalling, Cam should be good to go.

I think the biggest reason is no one is actually talking about Andy Dalton anyway.
