Part of the issues has to be on Cam. No need to bring up his age when he did pretty darn well last year, a year younger and less experienced. Is he the only issue? No, but he doesn't get a pass.
He was wildly inaccurate today. He never seems to hit those short dump off passes/screens with any accuracy. Our RBs always have to catch them off balance or not at all. He targeted Smith way too much and didn't hit our leading receiver until late.
I don't think it's physical but more mental for Cam. He has all the tools in the world but his mind doesn't seem to be right. With all of this coming out about him being a sore loser, it makes sense. He might feel like he is responsible for our lousy performances and it's taking a toll. I will say he needs to "grow up" a bit and be able to handle his emotions better. It's great that he hates to lose but he can't let his emotions affect his play.
I have said that Hurney needs to go. He is the root of our problem.
His age and experience simply matter.....Brees and Brady couldn't put a team on their back 21 games into their careers.....
yes, Cam is responsible for his failures. However, if you need 1 yard....and your QB has struggled all game with short throw accuracy ....and you have big long tank in Cam and a highly paid backfield (that has proven they can get that yard on the ground ......it is coaching that decides how they are going to use their players to get a yard.
Just bc a player fails doesn't mean it is all on a player. The coaching flaws and errors are glaring.
