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...

    • I have to apologize to @TheRed , not for what I have said, but most certainly how I have said it. He was right that this isn't how I normally post and my passion for the subject matter got the best of me and left me with the just the worst. I should have said, "Please, you have obviously got an informed opinion and a desire to get the best out of this country we share, so don't pass up on your opportunity to cast a ballot. It doesn't have to be for every race, but find someone or something you can get behind and put your votes there." One single vote may not matter in a presidential, or even gubernatorial, election, but don't let that turn you into thinking the voter doesn't matter. Look, act and vote local -- these are the races that have the most impact on your life and where you have the most impact, too. A change at the local level does reverberate up the ladder, it is how all great movements start. I won't get on you or anyone else about not voting again, but please, in exchange, could you just commit to casting a ballot next time your local elections roll along? You are full of smart ideas and are passionate about a number of issues, don't let that go to waste. You might very well actually improve things. And Lord, we sure do need that, don't we? Once again, my apologies to @TheRed and @NanuqoftheNorth for going above and beyond in calling you out. You deserve a better shake than I gave you.
    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4
