That headline irritated me when I read it... they're trying to make it a bigger story than it is. When you read the entire quote, the guy is talking more about the Seahawks causing Cam to tank rather than Cam causing Cam to tank, like the headline wants you to believe.

Well, it sure seems like that's what they were going for.

Saw that earlier on ESPN. It wasn't an insult, it's the same with any QB. Why does Brady have such a hard time against the Giants? Because they get in his face.

Thomas said he's a great QB both running and passing, but if they got to him, he'd start getting down and it would affect his performance. That's what they did. Thank Chud for not making any adjustments and not using a REAL running game and getting him quick passes to set up a rhythm and get the offense moving.

It's all true. Cam gets frustrated quick, and gets right off of his game.

What would you guys say to this.. Cam to the Bills for Dareus, Stevie Johnson and their 1st and 2nd rounder? Yay or nay? Their QB is garbage and they liked Cam going into the draft. Id make that trade. Lets see. They will probably have a top 7 pick and we would have a top 5 pick. We would get Dareus, Johnson plus we could draft Eric Reid and Star Lotulelei in the 1st round and a QB in the 2nd round.

Why would you EVER trade your franchise QB once you find one?

That is unless you're an idiot and don't believe we have a franchise QB.

I'd probably say:

Cam still needs to improve his mentality and decision making but he is one of many reasons from top to bottom within this organization we are losing and the people we have around him are clearly not helping him the right way right now.
