We aren't able to get 4-5 yards consistently on first and second down by running the ball.
Couple that with Cam being pretty inaccurate on his short throws, and you get lots of short drives.
it might be that we need to have 6 OL out there just to make sure that the RBs can have room to run and that cam has time to throw the ball (of course him holding on to the ball so long waiting for that big play down field doesn't help the Oline at all).
i don't like the idea of taking a potential weapon off the field so that we can have an extra lineman and i really don't like that it's needed, but that's the way it is so we have to work with what we've got. having that extra weapon/outlet on the field for cam might not be helping anyway.
cam just needs to get the ball out quicker and spread the ball out more. he needs to focus less on the big play and focus more on getting the ball to the open man, whoever that is. that will open things up a whole lot more and give us more success in those moments where we go for the big play. this will also make it a lot easier for the OL, but with kalil out we really need to be doing everything we can to make the OL more effective.
