Cam's rookie year the only difference was we didn't have Tolbert and we had the best rushing attack in the NFL
Last year was one big offensive fug up and you cant seriously think you know anything moving forward by using last year as a judging mark. If you were able to use LAST year as a judging mark then LAST year we would have been a top 5 offense right? because in 2011 we had the 7th best offense and in a year we would obviously trend up...WRONG
So now if the team actually calls plays on offense like they have some sense (Shula), like they did in 2011 PLUS having Tolbert we should hypothetically have a better rush game then in 2011
Bottom line is if you don't want us to get back to a ground and pound offense then no you shouldn't like this move, but if you want to get back to ground and pound you will love this move. Guys, we could make the playoffs solely on having a top 5 ground game again. I don't want to hear that oh we could find a scrub to go in the backfield and dominate for much cheaper. I tend to like having the best stable in the NFL + that our QB can dominate on the ground too
We weren't ground in pound in 2011....
Newton made us the best attack in 2011 bc we had a decent OL.......and RGIII did the same in 2012 for his team. It isn't about the RB when you have a special guy at QB.
Problem in 2012....we short changed our OL. That was more costly than cute Chud. 3/5th weren't starting caliber heading in and them we lost Kalil.
