Definetely take Cam over recent QB's in our past, but you have to admit, Cam's accuracy has been atrocious, he can't seem to scramble like last year, and he is just making poor decisions. Sophomore slump huh?
I guess it can be called a slump based on the numbers, though not by much.
Based on the eye test, I think he is the same Cam with less consistency on the deep ball. To me, it appears he's trying to do too much. As if he feels he has to win the game himself. And most games he does. The lack of a run game puts too much pressure on our young QB.
I just can't understand how we've forgotten how to run, when that's all we've done well for the last decade. My only conclusion is a coaching philosophy that doesn't fit the personnel on the team.
With the emergence of our defense, we don't need to ask Cam to carry the offense on his own. Last year was different - he needed to score 40 points a game to win. This year, 24 points would win most games this year - that's 6 points a quarter. One TD or 2 FGs a quarter would do it. We need to play to control field position and not try to force the issue with feast or famine plays.
