Awesomeness!!

Is Cam just a bad read option QB?

68 posts in this topic

Against Dallas, a one legged RG3 ran the read option to perfection, and won the game, basically without a real passing threat. (He threw for 100 yards?) Everybody in college does it seemingly, and Ive never really seen it fail anywhere else like it did here. A part of me wants to believe Cam is just a pocket passer, that can run. He isnt run first (it pisses me off when people assume he is..ahem). If Tom Brady ran a 4.3 or whatever, I doubt he would be running the read option. This is why I wanted RR and Chud trashed, and why I think we should focus on Cam as a passer capable of running, and not vice versa.

No - it failed here because they tried to run it every other play, rendering it pedestrian. And even if Cam were to become a "pocket passer who can run", being a traditional passer and a guy who can execute an option play a couple times a game are not mutually exclusive.

I have a 5 times a game read option tolerance limit before I start cursing.

RG3 could be running any type of offense, results would still be the same as they were with cam his rookie season. Once teams get a full year to study RG3 and his style etc, defenses will shut him down.

Im 100% convinced fans have no clue what they are talking about when they go to the "teams will have tape" theory. You could use the same logic in reverse. RG3 could get tape of a defense, and adjust just as easily.

I saw one commentator illustrate show the time difference from Cam and Rg3 and Cams time to execute was clearly slower.

I noticed this in the Dallas game. On one leg RG3 was gone before the D knew who had the ball. We were always stuffed for some reason.

    • Damn does it feel good to be back. Good afternoon ladies and gents and welcome to the draft menu thread! Despite our fearless leader's newly found hippy veganism (just kidding don't ban) some of us still want to talk about meat, cheese and good old fashioned carbs. I'm starting the thread a couple of days early to give people ideas on what to cook! I know some of us will be out and about at a bar and you're still encouraged to let us know what you plan on eating. But I know some of you will be breaking out the smoker/grill for this occasion and my mouth is watering at that thought.   I'm still undecided on what I'll be eating since it's going to be a late night for me and I'm not sure if I'll even be able to watch the draft. Just in case I'll be scanning through this thread for ideas. (I'll include some below).   So let's see what you've got planned Huddle and as always..... PICS ARE ENCOURAGED.   DISCLAIMER: Don't forget to post what you'll be drinking.
