CBS: Ten players likely to take a step back

it wouldn't shock me of last season turns out to be the only season Cam throws for 4000 yards, at least in this offense. I imagine our offensive philosophy being such that 250 yards passing and 200 rushing per game is the ideal balance. We aren't going to be a passing dominated offense unless teams decide to take away the run and make us beat them throwing like they used to always do. That means Cam only maybe throws for 3500 yards but hopefuly his TD's go up and his turnovers go down while total offensive yards and points scored increase. That doesn't mean I don't think Cam will be capable of 4000 yards only that we would prefer not to have him throwing 35 times a game. Having a decent defense and special teams will also help us maintain a more balanced offense this season (hopefully).

If our D plays poorly Cam will have plenty of chances to throw for 300.

i want to see a 4000+ yard passing and 3000+ yard rushing year from this offense. i think it can pull it off.

that is...i'd rather see us win a few superbowls more, but i think this would be really cool to see and i think we've got the players/scheme/coaching to pull it off.

I think RG3 will take a step back as hyped up as Skins fans have him out to be.

Folks are expecting RG3 to be Cam while forgetting Cam wasn't supposed to be Cam last year...

Skins fans are in for a big disappointment.

I don't think Can will have as good of a year statistically with the exception of TD:INT ratio. I don't think the offense will have to do as much with improved D and ST's.

Folk are expecting RG3 to be RG3, a one of a kind talent the likes of which has never been seen in the NFL before. Oh and how in the hell will Dalton "take a step back"? Isn't he a "game manager"? All he really has to do is play the system and not do something stupid right? Panther fans are all wet over what they hope Cam will accomphish. I think you guys are in for a let down. Seriously, nobody was psyched about playing the Panthers last season, no one. They were just one of those run of the mill teams that everyone overlooked. Thats no going to happen this season. teams will actually gameplan and will have the right mindset this year. Not saying Cam will bomb, he has loads of talent but i see a bumpy road waiting ahead. Anyways we'll see. I'm not always right, just most of the time.

Yeah, that's just stupid. Cam opening with back to back 400+ yard games and nearly knocking off the defending champs put him on the map early.

There's very little RG3 can do that Cam hasn't already done and I will guarantee you that he won't top Cam's rookie season or any of his records. I love RG3 and I hope he's good, but if he even comes close to the player Cam already is then he'll accomplish something. RG3 will also have the luxury of an actual off season to learn his offense and teammates and STILL won't measure up to a transcendent level like Cam.

I get the feeling the D will be a lot better this year.

Worth remembering that Rivera was the coach who shut down Peyton Manning better than anyone else.

dalton will regress because he's exactly that: a game manager that will have more of the game put on him in year two. teams will gameplan to stuff the run and take away green and put the game on dalton's arm (if you can even call it that). baltimore and pittsburgh are kind of known for having good defenses so good luck trying to pound the football. it's also interesting that your logic for cam (the entire league will be gunning for him this time because they certainly weren't last year lol amirite) does not extend to dalton.

cincy got beat like a drum by the quality teams on their schedule and in my book expecting them to take that next step as a serious super bowl contender is just as inane as expecting the panthers to if you're going to criticize the latter by saying "they didn't beat anybody" as i've seen you do.

on another note, do you think teams weren't gameplanning for newton by like week two? i mean you saw the midseason adjustments the panthers made as teams started to load up against the pass, right? newton's average pass attempts/game were down by like 15 by the last six games of the year compared to early on. the Saints**** had a documented bounty on him for chrissakes.

as for RG3 who knows. i'm standing pat with my prediction that he'll have a good season but if he puts up 4700 total yards and 35 total TDs my jaw will be on the floor.

In Shanny's system if RG3 is forced to throw that many times it will mean the Skins are behind or in a shootout. I actually don't want to see those types of numbers from him. I put more emphasis on wins and TD to INT ratio.
