Was it my imagination or was Cam calling audibles last night? Or was he just changing the blocking scheme?

He called adjustments. It was nice to see. The more he does it the more he will develop. The play call should be a suggestion...and Cam should be able to shake if he sees something that isnt right...

Like a pitcher shaking a catcher to another pitch

Cam is a freakin statue in the pocket. What game were you watching?

His pocket awareness is so terrible he makes Peyton Manning look like Ben Roethlisberger.

What sarcasm?

He forgets he has legs while in the pocket. Cam is just awful at extending plays.

He only converted how many 3rd downs last night while escaping pressure...avoided several sacks...threw on on the run to Tolbert, and DWill (drop)

Also several plays the WRs were standing there watching Cam run around

Not arguing this any more...

Cam is a quarterback that can suddenly turn into a running back, but he does need to work on avoiding pressure in the pocket. We could just blame the o-line all day, but he's not helping when he fails to move his feet or holds onto the ball for too long. It seems like the game hasn't slowed down for him yet because it's funny watching such a mobile QB just stand around hoping the offensive line does everything or expecting there to be an open receiver at all times.

In today's passing league (I hate saying that), quarterbacks need to have that pocket awareness that tells them when they've stayed in the pocket too long because offensive lines can't be expected to stop everything anymore, especially not ours. Peyton Manning can barely run anymore, but he makes defensive lineman look stupid with just a couple of steps. I do think he's improving, but he's not as mobile as one would expect a QB with his running ability to be.
