Cam breaking habbit?

Not saying cam is selfish, but knowing his abilities, and his past coaches must have used him in a lot of ball carry situations. Could this be a reflect of our run game and [size=5][u][b]PARTIALLY[/b][/u][/size] not the coaches play calling, and OLINE? Muscle memory is tough to break especially when raw, and in the second year of a qb. There have been moments of hesitation of cam holding the ball to long in the RB's belly. Now it seems Cam has grown more custom to letting the RB's run. Thus, maturing in a PRO offense?

Basically, Cam runs the ball TO DAMN MUCH. Hes used to running our offense the RB's never developed because of Cam carries and not the play calling.

It's called a read option.

That said, don't make another thread.

Cam was taking too long to make some of his reads. No that he wanted to run it himself, but he wasn't making quick decisions. Now he is.

It helps when you don't run it as often as well.

Well, there has been about 10 billion threads about the option so I figured you would have picked up on what one is by now.

You're asking whether it's Cam's fault for keeping the ball and running when he pulls it back from the RB instead of play calling and the answer is no. It's a called play called an "option", and more specifically a "read option". On the more basic read option Cam has the option of handing off to the RB or keeping it himself and the decision is a quick one based on how the defense has reacted.

I could go into a more in depth explanation, including our triple read option plays, but this should give you a better idea.

exactly, the term "read option" refers to the idea that the decision is based on an actual "read" of the defense by the QB and he picks his "option" of what to do with the ball based on said read.

This is what I meant. Because this is the option this has stunt Cams growth. Did biggest play asset basically stunt his growth in the running game?
