The improvement I want to see is his ability to come back mentally from an INT, or the ability to lead a 4th QTR comeback drive. We still haven't won a game in which he threw an INT.

Its not Cam that cant mentally come back from one of his INTs.

Any QB in the league can make the passes when there isn't pressure and the wideout is wide open. Unfortunately, those plays are rare in this league. Good QB's make the passes when there is pressure and when there is less room to put the pass.

Manning had plenty of pressure yesterday, he just knows how to move in the pocket and throw off his front foot.

Please, you have to be joking.

Payton was pressured on 6 drop backs. That's 15% of plays compared to Cams 40% of drop backs.

Manning a performance was also worse, no where near Cam's but it was down in every way when under pressure.

It won't surprise everyone but Cam holds onto the ball for the third longest in the league, but that should be something he improves once he learns the way to avoid pressures.

Manning was pressured a lot. He just has a sixth sense and steps up into a small opening and makes the throw he needs to.

This.


This is why I was hoping for Cam to just watch from the sidelines. And not just how he moved his feet, but how he directed the entire offense up and down the field.

You are a new QB in this league and you have the opportunity to watch one of the GOAT work. Do you do it? Of course not. You sit alone on the bench with your head down.

Spin it any way you want, it isn't a way to improve.

Atlanta got 3 picks and 3 sacks on Manning. Our fans are so in "awe" of him they believe he cant be beat or makes mistakes. No, our defense is just vastly overrated on this board by Huddlers who want to believe scrubs are stars.

Towards the end of the 4th quarter when the Broncos D finally let up, sure.

I find it sad when the best thing your QB can do, is run. (I listend to radio commentary on the game yesterday, and one of them said he wanted to see Cam run more) -_- By the way, Cam is a straight line runner. If he has to change direction, it's like a freight train trying to make a right angle turn.

Athletic QBs don't succeed in this league. Cam has skills to become a great QB, I see him as a pocket passer anyway. Anyone who's watched Cam, will tell you he is a pocket QB with speed. Yet I've yet to see that want to from Cam. He seems perfectly fine trying to win like he's won at Auburn. Just on pure athleticism.

Manning was constantly stepping up in the pocket to avoid a defender. Just because he knows hot to elude the pressure, doesn't mean there was none.

Its a lot easier to step up in the pocket when your interior linemen aren't named Silatolu, Hangartner and Byers. Having a pocket also helps.

I havent seen Cam call out protections, identify the blitzer or anything like that at all this year. What is the reason for that? Is it just that he is too dumb...or is it something the coaches just dont allow. And how about an audible every once and a while?

QB gets too much credit for wins and too much praise for wins
