As to the grammar, you need to get it together because you are communicating with a written language. You aren't speaking to someone and unfortunately we have to understand what you're typing. Poor grammar is not only painful to read, it also makes it harder to get your point across.

You are using a medium of communication that requires proper written language, please keep that in mind.



That's true. I guess no one would take a poor written thread seriously. D: English is NOT my second language. Korean.

So you're Korean but English isn't your second language? You learned to speak English first being Korean?

Part of it too might be that this subject has been discussed ad naseum... and rightly so, but if you don't know, then there's no harm in asking.

It's pretty much what Flopping said... I'd say the vast majority of people on here agree that having the read option as our base offense this season was one cause, if not the main cause of our offensive problems.

It doesn't effectively use our running backs, it hinders Cam's growth as an NFL QB and it just doesn't work very well in the NFL if you do it ALL THE TIME because NFL defenses are smart and NFL defensive players are fast and strong.

Would you consider Cam a pocket passer?

When asked to be one, absolutely.

Not sure how people would feel about comparisons. What type of a quarterback is he?

Cam is a pocket passer in my opinion. I've seen him take hits in the pocket while still getting the ball out with velocity. Cam runs when he has/asked to do so.

I certainly think he has the ability to be one, and has shown that at times... I actually think that either the coaches have coached him to be more of a pocket passer, or that Cam has decided it's something he needs to do, because there are times when it is obvious he could run and he doesn't... he stands in the pocket and tries to make the pass.

Over the past couple of games, I think his pocket awareness has gotten better.. idk why? Earlier this season he wasn't "feeling" pressure the way he should have been and took some sacks that he shouldn't have imo.

To me, and this point has been made by others, Cam is a better, faster version of Ben Roethlisberger... that's who he compares most to imo. You watch Ben and he has an almost uncanny sense of the pocket and who is around him... he's not a fast or quick guy, but he always seems to find a way out of pressure. If Cam's pocket awareness continues to get better over time... the NFL better look out.
