Can't agree more. The whole read option takes too long to develop and against fast defenses, their on you before you know it!

It's as if long-term planning for his success and maturation to a pro style was sacrificed for the "must win now" instant gratification of trickery and scheme that took the NFL by surprise last season but has already passed it's expiration date.

You're dead on.

he might be capable of it, but there has to be an issue with newton running a full time pro style offense...it would be the only legitimate reason for sticking with the madden attack offense.

Cam sealed his fate when we drafted him. We are the new Cleveland, a place players want to avoid at all costs.

I agree. I just wonder why(hindsight is 20/20 I realize) we didnt re-sign Shockey or go after another good TE. Olsen and Shockey were the security blankets last year, and Olsen is having a decent season, but I dont recall having this college offense much at all last season. Several things are going wrong this season, but I agree with Zod. Chud needs to take this bye week and do some adjusting. Teams know what we are trying to do now.

Its Hurney's fault we didn't bring Shockey back right?

    • What a funny 30 minutes.   I can only imagine being around these guys all the time.  Even the father was joking.
    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
