The EJ Manuel pressure on Cam.

I've been watching preseason football and I took notice of QB EJ Manuel. He is physically built like Cam, had similar performance at the combine, so I'm sure throughout the regular season his name will pop up when speaking about Cam. What I notice about him is that he is very accurate in short and intermediate throws and he is not afraid to go to the check down, which sometimes Cam refuses to do. He keeps the chain moving.

 

Unlike Cam who looks erratic in his preseason plays, that dude looks comfortable and in full control of the  offense. In fact, during his 1st preseason game on a 2-minute drill his head set malfunctioned and he took command, called the plays  himself and march his team down to a TD. Something we haven't seen from Cam who seem to huddle on every single down the last 2 years and doesn't call his own play.

 

Here comes the real concern, we have them at week 2. They're loaded with talented WRs(Johnson, Woods, Goodwin) , CJ Spiller is no joke RB, their OL is adequate plus EJ can run. Their defense is also pretty good.

 

I'm an avid defender of Cam but what bothers me sometimes about him is his refusal to go to the check down and take what the defense give him. And he doesn't spread the football around. It's Smith or nothing for him. 

 

Fair or not, will even more pressure be put on Cam if he doesn't come out with a victory or at least perform well in that game? I'm afraid coming out of this game people might suggest Cam should play more like Manuel. If there is a must win game for us it's probably this one.

I think EJ will definitely be compared to Cam, and he did look good keeping the chains moving with short/intermediate passes.

I aso agree that one of Cam's biggest flaws is forcing the big play instead of just taking what defenses give him. I thought he figued it out at the end of last year, but he hasn't shown it thus far in preseason.

 

Unfortunately, I agree with much of the OP.

I like EJ, and hopes he has a Cam-like rookie season. I expect Cam to have a great year this year, and when we face EJ, I hope we destroy them

He did look very good the other night and was very accurate.

Depending on when he gets back, he could make it very difficult for us up there.
