Good stats. But ESPN has spoken and Cam just doesn't cut the mustard. He will be out of the league washing RGIII, Luck, and Wilson's cars.

I'm sorry I couldn't even type that with a straight face. Seriously though Cam was is and will be just fine.

If you look at the stats, the dreaded soph slump doesn't really even exist. It was invented by the media and they're sure as hell gonna keep pumping it up, even if all they've got is hot air.

That projection is also with his slow start bringing it all down.....if he continues as he has in recent weeks to finish, he walks away this year with a simply better individual 2nd season.

Also, if he keeps up his play like he has in recent weeks, we probably finish 7-9.

Not much better, but a game improvement.

Yea, that sophomore slump talk was crazy. He's improved this season. His turnovers are down this year, and thats what the major complaint about him last year was. I'd like to see him get that completion % back up into the 60's, but he's had a really good season. We get a better team built around him, and this team will go some places.

Exactly. I can see Cam throwing 6 more TDs, rushing for 2 more, and throwing 2 more picks. He will have more total yards this year than last year...

Do the haters on here realize Cam could very well account for 5000 yards and 30+ tds...

The expectations on this kid is unreal...

Here's how I look at it....

He was an all-world super human stud last year. Something the league hasn't quite seen before. This year, although he's arrived at it in a different route; he's still exactly that. Something other-worldly in the way of a football player and QB. He's a superstar. And I wouldn't say he's slumped or disappointed or not improved. For him to match last year's stats and put this dumpster fire of a team and coach on his back every week is saying something. He's been just as good if he hasn't been better. And just as good as last year is something super human.
