Ron Jaworski: Tape says Cam can be a special passer

61 posts in this topic

15?!?! Please ... He is already better than Matt Ryan, Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, and Joe Flacco

Depends on your definition of better. Athletic ability and potential he is better. As far as the nuances of the QB game then I wouldn't say that. Saying the players you listed know the QB position better than Cam and probably execute better at pure QB play is probably correct.

I can see ranking him @ 15 simply because he's only played for one year, but he's clearly a top 10 talent.

Being named the 15th best QB in the league coming off an abbreviated rookie season ain't bad. He'll be considered the best QB in the league in 3 years.

This is easy name the first 7 qbs you would take......

Rodgers

Brees

Manning

Manning

Brady

Newton?

Who else would come before him? I really tried to do this without being a homer

if ur factoring in age you might take Cam second.

Better QB play and who you would take are 2 different things.

If I was starting a team tomorrow and could pick a QB it would be Rodgers then based on age I'd be hard pressed not to consider Newton

I agree... I think Jaws is just being very conservative in his rankings, but as far as QBs you would take if you could have them before Cam, he's around #7 at worst.

I thought that all of last year Cam had much, much more talent than he was given credit for in the passing game. He stands very tall, has quiet feet and has a really high release. Jaws is right about the experience thing too... once Cam has 2 or 3 years in the league... holy shitballs it gives me a woody (no homo).

So are you not factoring in his running abilities? He was 10th in passing yds and if you add his running yds he moves into the top 8 with total yds. Combine his td's and hes top 6. 15th in passing + 1st in rushing = 16/2= 8. Hes top 8 for sure.

Name a better QB not on my list and tell me why.

I could go into turnovers and 4th quarter efficiency if you like. Or could just dig into some obscure stat that takes out his running statistics to prove a point. However as we have seen on this board that turns you into a hater. My point was that based on pure QB play it could be stated that the other guys that were mentioned such as Cutler, Ryan, etc could be considered better at playing QB (ie, better mechanics, better reads, better checkdowns etc.) I wouldn't take Cam over anyone, that includes Aaron Rogers but if someone who watches QB game play pretty much exclusively and has played QB in the NFL ranks some more QB's higher than Cam based off of his rookie season and game play, I wouldn't say they were stupid.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
