Watch the two play and watch the differing types of throws each make. Cam's problem right now is just the short routes. I don't know if it's touch or he just can't take power off of the throw to allow it to drop into zone coverages.

IMO, its experience. I think he sometimes forgets to set his feet for the short ones or rushes them more than he needs to. I think (or at least I hope) that he will eventually solve those problems.

Difference is that most white QBs don't get called busts on draft day (or even in their 2nd or 3rd season for that matter), other than The Golden Calf of Bristol because of his awful throwing motion. Cam has had to deal with Jamarcus Russell comparisons from day one (still haven't heard a good reason for that one), and now Vince Young. Sam Bradford, Jake Locker, and Blaine Gabbert have been largely underwhelming given their draft position to this point in their career, but I never hear any of those guys get compared to Tim Couch, David Carr, JP Losman, etc.

Edit: Seriously, re-reading Grits' post about Cousins should be starting over RG3 = lol

You haven't been talking to many Jacksonville fans then. Gabbert and bust have become common talk in that area. And there are definitely some comparison's to past bust, although I don't think that Gabbert came in with anywhere near the hype Bradford or Carr did.

I would trade Cam right now for Luck or Tannehill.

Both have their teams singing their praises as leaders and both have more than one win.

Right now, there isn't a lot of difference between Luck and Newton in terms of performance. Luck might be in a slightly better situation as Indy didn't have the expectations that Carolina did this season. Basically, there is a lot less pressure on him (similar to Cam last year). But I wouldn't trade Newton for Luck and certainly not for Tannehill.

Jacksonville has fans?

In all seriousness, he might get local hate, but nowhere near the national scrutiny of how bad he's been thus far as compared to Cam. This is despite the Todd mcshays of the world claiming he was much of a sure bet to succeed than Cam was before last years draft.

Should make offensive rookie of the year interesting, but with all the RG III hype I believe he wins unless Luck can somehow get his team in the playoffs.

Luck's team is 5-3, if they dare make the playoffs, Luck ROY is a wrap.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
