Pete Prisco also thinks the read option is to blame for Cams problems

Cam said it himself Sunday... He just runs the plays that are called. Chud is a f'ing idiot. He is killing the offense and he's too stubborn to acknowledge it or change

I don't care we require him to stand on his head for running plays, he still should be able to throw a 5-10 yard pass.

I don't like the run option crap either, but it seems to me Cam's problems are mostly mental and not handling the pressure of being a nfl qback with a lot of attention on him. I do think he will get better as he gets older.

I said this last year, and I'll say it again, we need to use him like Big Ben, don't run him, he's too good of a passer to do that, get him to use his legs to extend the play and he could be a perennial pro-bowler.

Dan Patrick also said about as much about Cam today on his show, this is what needs to be done.

I am of the honest opinion that the read option is worthless in the NFL, and any OC or HC that thinks it's what the need to do needs to be fired.

A blind kid with down syndrome can see the read options is the problem.

How can you do that if you're not used to passing on normal plays?

I am not exactly sure what you mean by that, because we pass on a lot of normal plays. Its the runs that are weird.

Cam's accuracy on medium and long throws seems to be just as good as it was last year. He was throwing strikes on anything longer than 10-15 yards the last couple of games, so the read option doesn't seem to be impacting his play in that regard. Most of his recent mistakes have come on the short stuff, and imo thats more of a concentration/focus problem than anything. And that is why I think it will get better with age and experience.

Now there are some times when he holds on to the ball to long, and that could be lack of experience. Or it could be the plays, or that receivers are not getting open, or some combination of the three.

As far as I can tell only two people are resistant to reverting to last years offensive scheme, the OC and HC.

I hate to beat a dead horse. But... Until someone beats Chud, we are who we are.

I didn't think reporters could get to the assistance coaches.

Either way, I never thought it would come to this, but I will watch the game Sunday with a note pad and pen, tracking all plays (run vs pass) and also keeping up with the formations used. Why, I have no idea. For score-keeping at home, is it considered a read option play if there is a play action fake with an option look but Cam ends up throwing a pass, or would it only apply to running plays?

Thanks guise!

I can't do that on game day. Too much happens too fast to accurately keep track of everything. However, that night or the next day, I rewatch and often chart the plays. If it helps, here's what I do:

Shotgun or under center?

If under center, is it an I-formation or empty backfield

Pass or run, and if it's a pass, was a play fake used

For shotgun runs, was it read option or a typical (for the rest of the league, not us) shotgun handoff

Who was the pass to or who ran the ball

Yards gained

1st downs gained
