Two guards and Shockey from last year are gone.

I'm not certain of the people replacing them.

When looking at the failure of the run game, look there, either this line has not gelled or the two guards and TE replacing them can't block.


The TE replacing Shockey isnt even on the field.

How many times did Cam run the option right into the blitz Sunday? Thats not on the o-line thats on Cam. The whole point of the option is to run the play away from the pressure.

That hesitation showed in the passing game as well, as he consistently missed open receivers, holding the ball upwards of 6-8 seconds before throwing another incompletion.

It just simply takes Cam too long to process just about anything this year. Do I think the guy can shake it off and get back on track? yes. But is his regression concerning? yes.

We get the Bye week and lets hope that Chud can find some schemes to get him comfortable PASSING the football so he can continue to establish his throwing threat and get a little more respect from defenses. Maybe some of the option plays will open up for him when he can see and get a better handle on what defenses are throwing at him.




How the hell does one option away from a blitz? In fact, that's how you stop an option... numbers. Hesitation is a byproduct of 1te 1wr routes or wr not getting open. Obviously Cam has had some issues, but Chud has been rigid and just plain bad. What is he going to fix in a week, that he couldn't in an entire off season?

Because you can't blitz 11 men. The purpose of the option by design is to have the OPTION to run the play to the edge or to the middle. Usually a blitz is designed to pressure the edge(s) or crash middle. Obviously you can scheme this out a number of different ways, but a even a seven man rush can't crash every gap.

If the defense crashes down on the middle the play has to go outside. If the first option is a dive Cam has to see the crash and pull the run to the outside. Instead he hands the ball off the Dwill and watches him get smashed before even getting back to the LOS. If Cam keeps that ball he gets at least 4 yards and we force the defense to react. Once you can get a defense to react you can pretty much run what ever you want.

They don't need to crash every gap. They simply need the D linemen to stay home and have the LBers and safety shoot the G/T or off tackle gaps. EVERYONE knows which side of the field we're going to run to. The D just stays disciplined, all that's left is to make the tackle. We don't even fake the option and pass anymore.
