Was someone actually arguing that Cam was faster than Squidward?
Edit: I mean, I'm not looking up times but it seems pretty fuging obvious that Cam is slower. Bigger and has a better arm, but definitely slower.
There was a discussion last night, where many were saying (and I agree), that Cam has similar speed to Kaepernick--The 40 times show this. Plus we were arguing that Cam is bigger, shiftier, follows his blockers, is more patient, doesn't have as many big holes as Kaepernick--lately, therefore doesn't get a chance to show off his speed as often.
Plus, I think Cam is a smoother runner in the open field (less moving parts), so that may make Kaepernick appear that much faster when he runs. Cam usually has less big holes, to shoot out the backfield as well. Therefore he's usually probing or juking guys most times.
Obviously, if you're not prepared for Kaep, you're going to give him more space (like Atlanta did), and he'll have more open space to run. Teams are already prepared for Cam in this respect. That's why so many times it seems he's running through a maze just to get a few measly (albeit) spectacular yards.
