To me just as big of a problem is too many deep routes and Cam not taking what's underneath. The middle is there.

I think most fans are in agreement on this. Not only does the option offense not work this year, we are getting less production from our 50 billion dollar backfield as a result.

And yes, Cam will eventually get hurt. I don't care how big he is, these defenders in the NFL will put him out of commission at some point. The question isn't if, but when.

That's true. It did seem like the underneath stuff was there, but Cam just wasn't seeing it. But still, I'd rather we get away from having Cam run so much.

The most likely place that Cam can get hurt is sitting in the pocket. He has great awareness in the open field. The place he is vulnerable, because he is good at keeping his concentration downfield and ignoring the rush, is being blind-sided on a sack.

That doesn't mean that we should continue to do more (or even as much) Cam running. It should just remain part of the package.

True, but this is essentially the Air Coryell offense.

But your point is valid... if Olsen or any WR or RB crossing is open in the middle, damned well take it. Those routes are being run for a reason.

Pretty much. Tape is out and has been rewound millions of time on Cam and Chud's offense. It will not work. It either needs to evolve and keep people guessing, or do what everyone else does and win the old fashioned way.

I think the offense needs to evolve. However I don't think that is the reason we aren't scoring well. Cam played horribly for 3 quarters. Steve Smith dropped some real momentum killing balls. Olsen wore a cloaking field for 3 quarters or he drunk the last of the Cammy Cam juice. We refuse to go to a heavy set and just run the ball on people like last year.

It seems like we ran the option mostly in the red zone last year......people weren't prepared and it worked well. Now that it's our bread and butter running play - it's not nearly as effective. Designed runs for Cam should be inside the redone only. If a pass play breaks down and he scrambles, I'm fine with that but we should definitely limit the punishment on Cam. We have a couple of 20 million dollar RBs for that.
