Brady and Brees do it.
Rodgers does some, Matt Ryan does some.
There was a whole generation around just bedore the time of Unitas where most QBs were the playcallers.


Those guys call audibles, not the same as what Peyton did/does.

And you are right about the old days...when you ran 45 times a game, and relied on D. Not to mention only having to score 11 to win every game.

It's not the same.

Brady goes up to the line with multiple play choices just like Peyton.
What's more is that Brady actually runs the QB gameplan meeting.
lol about the old days...your exxageration contains such little truth its laughable
but even if they ran the ball more often; the QBs still had total control, which btw was the point of my statement

As long as Cam can handle the offense in a 2 minute situation with minimal help from the sidelines that is the main thing to me. He doesn't need to call every play but he does need the ability to go to the line of scrimmage and make an audible call if the D is clearly set up to stop the called play. We have an offensive coordinator and head coach for a reason and it isn't to dump the whole offense on our second year QB to run for himself. Now ten years down the road? Anything is possible but for right now I would get Cam as proficient in the two minute drill and at reading the D at the line of scriimmage before worrying about turning him into Manning.

I think the coaches will be trying to take some pressure off Cam versus adding more on his plate.Cam needs a year to refine his passing skills and let the game slow down for him.Cam did an incredible job shouldering more of a load than any qb I have ever seen but he took to many hits and had too many sacks.If Cam has to put up the number he did last year I think that will be a bad sign.
