Cam's performance

68 posts in this topic

After today, I'm sure that I live in an alternate universe.

It is not possible that we all watched the same game.

My one complaint with Cam/Chud is the lack of a short passing game. We must develop that for days like today. Other than that, Cam is throwing the ball much better than last year at this time. Make any team/QB one dimensional, and they are going to have some problems.

I'm not really worried about him, but he has to stop throwing bad INT's. INT's happen to all QB's, but a lot of Cam's come from him making bad decisions when a play breaks down.

He threw the ball into an area with four defenders at least twice today. Once Lafell came down with it and once it was intercepted. Both could have very easily been INT's.

Stafford, 3 picks, Vick, 4 picks, Brees, 2 picks, Rodgers pick and a loss, Luck, 3 picks, Fitzpatrick, 3 picks, etc etc.

Cam is Cam.

If he isnt getting a lot of help....he consistently turns into a big play gambler. His leading rusher was a WR with 5 yards. I don't have any issue with Cam's play.

wonder if Redskins would trade RG3 for Cam?

In a heartbeat I would say.

Honestly I think 30 other franchises would sign up for Cam.

Dude threw for over 300 yards and looks leagues better as a thrower of the football than where he was at. He made some bad decisions trying to make stuff happen when it wasn't there, but it ain't something that bothers me at this stage in his career.

Nah just a couple bad choices that wasnt helped by the line. Got a few lolz in the chat though when raleigh-panther said he wasnt sure cam was a QB....

I'm not sure.

He is a great athlete, no question.

Great QBs are not always great athletes.

Frankly, I"m not sure. If you are, and others are, well, great.

I was really in his camp when he was drafted, in his camp last year, heard a lot of things about him that i felt were ridiculous and still do.

However, today, I saw a guy that seemed to regress, stared down receivers, didn't do his check downs, hesitant and indecisive, threw the ball into not double but triple coverage, losing yardage

when he could've just thrown the ball away.

And stil more interceptions. This team is not good enough to overcome that.

Was this one game in the season, we'll see.

I thought he looked really good overall. The forced throws leading to interceptions are a concern. I feel bad that he has to put up with the lack of talent around him.

His ball placement today was elite on 90% of his throws.

23 for 33 for 303 yards passing. 1 TD and 2 INT's. One was a tipped ball the other was Forced.

Overall his performance was ok. Not his best but not his worst. The offensive line was no help at all this time around, he had almost no room, he was rattled and had a defender on him every other play. He also wasn't on the field very long. 22 minutes to be exact, the ball was kept from him by the Bucs O running so much and winding down the clock. That was the same strategy the Skins used on Drew but as you can see Brees still scored, a lot. Basic principle and formula. Keep Newton off the field, and make him turn over the ball in the limited amount of time he has will equal a win for the other team.

Josh freeman wasn't stellar, he was below pedastrian but he had no turnovers. Played perfectly. Lack of pass rush really helped him as well. His Running game actually got off to a good start. These aren't excuses. They are facts.

I wouldn't pin this loss on Newton at all.
