I exaggerate but

The most dangerous hits a QB takes are in the pocket, because he's more likely to not see what's hitting him.


Unless you have a decent blindside protector.....oh wait.....

STANDING IN THE POCKET LIKE A MFING STATUE


Or standing in traffic.... but who would ever advocate either?

Not good. I was afraid of this when we hired a 60 year old "experienced" guy. No vision of the future and stuck in the 90's way of doing things.

If you go away from the read option you are taking away one of our biggest assets and handicapping Cam.


He never mentioned taking it away as a whole, but to not use it as a base offense, a la chud.... Did you watch the first half of this season?

If we REALLY want to protect the quarterback, we'll install the single wing offense.

True, but a quarterback is more guaranteed of a taking a hit on a read-option play. Sacks and hits off pressures happen, but you tend to keep your guy clean more often than not. I just have some hesitation about using it all the time after watching a guy like RG3 come in and play some of the most exciting football ever, and leave the field a hobbled mess with a torn everything.

Well, I think you have to be smart about it, and I think we have been.

Cam's good about getting down when he knows he's going to take a hit.

Not really. Cam is awfully good at falling down before the hit.

Jordan Gross said on ESPN 730 Sport Radio recently regarding the Read Option: 'I don't think Quarterbacks can play like that for 10 years. You just get beat up too much'. He added. 'The beauty of Cam is: He's so good in the pocket now, that we don't have to rely on the read option or other offenses like that, but can use it as another wrinkle to mix it up and keep teams honest' That's a paraphrase. However, it sounds like he and Gettleman are on the same page to me. Maybe Cam to? Shrugs.

The Read Option is fine. It's the over use of it that's the problem (especially when The Panthers make it so easy to detect with opposing defenses out of the/their Shotgun).
