Could Cam Run The Offense?

A La Peyton Manning?

Interesting concept, especially if down the road Cam learns the offensive system and realizes how he can exploit defenses. I know he isn't close to being able to do this, but who else could better understand what the defense is doing, especially while running a no huddle offense, than the QB?

Like I said, interesting concept to think about. I'm not sure if it will be feasible. Anyway, discuss.

Not yet. Maybe someday.

He is intelligent enough to accomplish it someday, it's too early right now I believe.

Maybe, but in all honesty . . . I hated that Peyton Manning offense when it was at it's height with the 13 dummy calls and fake hikes. Effective, but not effective enough to endure all that.

Please just snap the ball at some point.

I think he could...

But it wouldn't look the same. He could do it with the spread option as his base

I found that really obnoxious as well, and don't feel that all the pre-snap stuff did all that much to confuse the good defenses. Peyton is effective because he's damn good, not for all the shenanigans at the line of scrimmage. He is also one of the best at play-action fakes, something Cam also does very well for a young guy.

In the years to come people will be asking if (insert qb name) will be able to run the offense like Cam.

He may very well become the prototype everyone is measured against.

No pressure.

Sure, why not?

He was able to grasp a pretty complex offense as a rookie without the benefit of a full offseason, so he might be one of the few guys that has the mental capacity to run the whole offense.

The real question is whether or not the coaches would ever let him do that, I can see advantages and disadvantages... sometimes it's better to have a second pair of eyes in a booth way above the field calling the plays based on what he sees from his vantage point.

And they actually won the superbowl the year he played his worst in the postseason:

70.5 quarterback rating.

3 touchdowns and 7 picks

no game with more passing tds than picks.

Team game and all that.

Peyton Manning? I don't know.

Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers? Very likely.

Absolutely. He is way to good in the spread not to.
