Natural to over react after the game yesterday, but here is some food for thought.

Against Denver, when Cam was not pressured:
27 drop backs
Completed 19 of 26 passes (73.1%)
225 yards (8.7/attempt)
2 touchdowns to 1 interception
108.7 QB rating

When Cam was pressured:
18 drop backs
Completed 2 of 10 passes (20%)
16 yards (1.6/attempt)
0 TDs to 1 interception
0.0 QB rating

At the time of watching I felt that Cam was playing pretty poorly, but he was pressured on 40% of plays, not sure many QBs can play well under that pressure. Some were on him, some on the play called, some on the wide receivers and some on the blocking up front. The point is though that Cam can very much do the job when he has a pocket to work in. This is representative of his season so far, although has has made progressive improvement this season when he has time to throw. Interestingly he faired better against the blitz, suggesting that when our front 5 struggle with the opposing DLine, then we are in trouble. Big time.

For those saying he holds onto the ball too long would cry murder for him throwing into coverage rather than taking the sack. He does at times hold on for too long, but it really isn't all on him. Cam really needs to use his check downs more and perhaps struggles to identify where pressure is coming from, but that is something that comes with experience.

Cam is the most convenient scapegoat for fans of a bad franchise.

Right now Cam is a sub par QB playing behind a god awful line.

There were plenty of times Cam was pressured only because he held the ball way too long.

How many of those pressure were do to Cam holding on to the ball too long, missing his reads, or not calling the right protections?

Well I for one am shocked that the QB of a bad football team is getting his share of blame.

Cam does nor help the situation (I believe later he will), but a good QB would make the protection calls, find the hot route to make the defense pay for bringing that kind of pressure... UNTIL you make defense pay for being disrespectful with the defense they play you will face constant pressure.

I for one am shocked that a team that bombed from the jump with Kerry Collins and has never developed a QB in 17 years, is struggling to support their pro bowl franchise QB.

And the continued denial and passive attitude of Jordan Gross decline in play and bloated salary is a loss too.
