This goes back to the point I was making a couple of days ago about the way a QB progresses and regresses as they develop in their first 5 years in the NFL.

http://www.newsday.c..._medium=twitter

Manning experienced a similar dynamic in his fourth season with the Giants. Like Sanchez, he showed plenty of promise early in his career, yet hit a point in the middle of his fourth year where doubts crept in about how good he could actually become. There was one particularly difficult period in the aftermath of a 41-17 home loss to the Vikings, when Manning threw four interceptions and general manager Jerry Reese used the word "skittish" to describe his behavior in the pocket.


The article also doesn't mention Eli's 8-22 59 yard clunker against a 0-7 Dolphins team and his 18-52 184 yard outing against an average Washington team.

Young QBs go through these things. Give the kid a little bit of a break and let him develop. After all we have already scored 12 offensive TDs in 7 games, only 4 less than we did the entire 2010 season.

He was lighting up the #1 Defense in football Sunday on the road.

A TD rather than the FG we settled for wins the game. He threw 2 passes on that drive. Rivera & Chud got conservative. If they hadnt he would have thrown the game winning TD. The minute we kicked that FG I knew how the game would end.

He will never be able to make a loser head coach and his staff winners that isn't how it works

I posted this same thing several days ago. It took Eli four seasons until he actually finished with a QB rating of 80 or over and a 60% or higher completion rate. If anything, Cam would be more likely to attract a goopd GM and a good HC like a Cowher or someone.

Because they can't help but obsess over the present and what is happening right now and expecting too much right now, instead of understanding that these types of leaps rarely happen.

Anybody that wants to bail on Cam at this point should just leave and never return. I say let 'em bail, The Huddle will be a better place for it

I've yet to see anyone bail on him, other than trolls trying to make people mad, but I have seen people be critical of him... which some mistake at a "bailing".

There have been multiple threads created by people who have been here for quite awhile insinuating that we should trade him, and that the new GM (whomever that may be) wont want him... So yeah, I'd constitute that as bailing

Teeray, I'm going to have to ask you to leave the premises. Logic regarding QB's is not allowed here.

BrooklynBully must be back on his medication for trolling finally.
