Cam's performance

68 posts in this topic

Considering he threw for 300, his running back didnt pick up a first down all game, and his OL was non-existent...not bad.

Dude still needs to learn how to win tho...and that starts with feeling some urgency in the 4th instead of continuing to be lax.

To play devil's advocate: Cam has struggled for a while now. Played poorly the 2nd half of the last regular season game last year. Played poorly in the Pro Bowl. Played poorly at worst and mediocre at best all preseason. And now played poorly to mediocre today.

Good news? That's just a game and a half of bad football when it matters. I'm just going to pull Week 4 out of my ass and say let's wait until Week 4 before we start saying he was overrated last year or is in a sophomore slump. He'll bounce back though of that I'm very confident.

Well which is it gonna be? Folks are yelling for wins, and we finished 4-2 in the last 6 of last season, yet Cam played poorly? He didn't have the crazy stats, but I would say he was more efficient.

Second half of the LAST GAME. As in two quarters against the Saints* when they were running up the score.

What I find so troubling is, other teams are doing everything to protect their QB and give him time to get his job done but not this team. It's the attitude of We got Cam that seems to be the attitude. He can do it all. Why bother do our job and protect him so he can get good reads. Let's let every defender get to him and let's have the pocket break easily break down around so he won't have a chance to and have to throw on the first read or run for his life.

Considering the "performance" of the OL, I thought he played decent. The first INT should've been a pass interference, but it was a bad decision to throw into triple coverage. The second INT was another bad decision, but didn't really hurt us too bad since it was already 3rd and long and that INT basically equaled a 30 yard punt.

When the OL is struggling like they were today, Chud has to stop trying to be cute and call some quick hitter plays or some max protect plays to get us cranking. He called way too much slow developing bullshit today and the Bucs just kept pinning their ears back and bringing the heat.

Poo. I read it wrong. My apologies. I'm just so used to hearing people say he played bad the 2nd half of last season because he wasn't throwing for 400 yards. I hate hearing it. My bad.

He made some pretty awesome throws in this game....the deep ball to murphy...his passes to Olsen...gave Smith some nice passes too.....the two INTs were poor decisions....it seemed like he was just looking and dead set on the deep pass play...instead of checking down and taking the safer option....i think overall it was him pressing and trying to get the team back into the game.

I mean the OLine has got to protect better. I mean look what happens to any QB when they are under pressure constantly...even Tom Brady appears human when teams get to him....

Cam is still the franchise and he's still an amazing talent. I know its far away but i really hope the trenches are truly addressed and upgraded in the offseason.

Umm, I don't normally have a problem with you, fias, but that is the most f*cking retarded thing I've read all night. Yuu really think the line isn't interested in protecting the FRANCHISE quarterback? They didn't give up, they got beat by a better performance. It happens.

He's not reading the defense. He can't see what they are trying to do, so he isn't making protection adjustments. It's fortunate that he is the athlete that he is or he would have gotten killed today. Chud's playcalling needs to get better though. He's getting cute when he needs to try to create mismatches and draw up high percentage plays and get a rhythm established. Ignoring the running game was a mistake.
