Perspective on Cam: Numbers compared to last year

56 posts in this topic

Meh, not so much worse. Again, his passing attempt numbers are right in line with his season totals last year. You can look at his ints on a case by case basis and argue that you shouldn't hold a few of them against him based on circumstances. But I'm not going down that road. If you need to feel like Cam has regressed as a passer to help you sleep at night, by all means go ahead. I just don't think that it's true and the majority of numbers back up the opposite opinion as well.

if he continues his pace and has the same amount of passing attempts this season as last, he will have 25 interceptions.

he had 17 last season.

never said he has regressed...just correcting your nuthugging statement about him being better in every statistical category outside of yardage.

A pointless simple way to put it:

Matt Cassel

Ron Mexico

Jay Cutler

Tony Romo

Sanchez

...and those two sh*tty rookies

are the other QBs with more ints than tds at this point. I'm only saying, consider that group and where you view Cam's level at.

All victims of passing in impossible circumstances as well, except maybe Vick, who came out the gate tossing picks in manageable situations.

The majority of Cutler and Romo's picks came in the same fashion as Cam's... When they were already down by a significant margin and/or in ridiculous down/distance circumstances. Cassel has been a victim of this as well because the Chiefs keep finding themselves behind early. Don't really have a reason for Sanchez. And I'm not a fan of any guy on that list in particular aside from maybe Vick...

IIRC, Romo is the all-time leader in regular season passer rating, so, essentially, I'm saying picks happen and in this group, including Cam, it's a result of poor decisions by the coaching staffs they play for.

in the end, no one is going to remember wether or not an interception was the qb's fault.

Cams #`s and our record are nearly identical to where he was this time last year. The only thing he's really slumping in is favorable media coverage. He had a lot more of that last year. Thru 4 games he's got over 1,000 yards which has him on pace for 4,000 again.

Good point, but I had hoped a year and an entire off season would bring improvement, not the same.

You know this isn't really a good thing, right?

improvement in him or our team? i honestly think he is about the same and our team has gotten worse.

Cam is still holding the ball too long and doesnt see the check down fast enough.
