Wagner most not be paying attention that no QB in NFL history has more passing yards than Newton to start off his career.....he isn't your standard "running QB". Sure he is inconsistent at times but few runners have ever had the passing ability Newton does at this level

You can barely raise your arms above your head for the pain.  No batted down passes from him this year, bank on it.
 

 

Yes, and after a while of movement it just stays sore all over. I wonder how much pain meds he will be on.

Seattle won't be able to get much pass rush (they'll get some because, you know, Byron Bell), so I suspect Cam will be able to put the ball on target. The question in my eyes is how much separation our Non-Smith pass catchers can get.

It'd be especially wonderful if the ball catching versions of Ted Ginn and Brandon LeFell show up.

If Shula has complety ditched the read option, then he's truly as bad as I have feared.

 

 

A sprinkle here or there is fine.

 

If it is the mainstay of our offense.... its going to be a long season.

it has to be just enough that the other team is forced to expect it and keep a spy on him. this takes one player out of play, essentially. i think it was a fine strategy for someone like vick who wasn't a total package Qb who could throw the ball. for someone like cam who can really stretch the field and who has smitty commanding double coverage, olsen who is just flat dangerous to them, lafell who is just plain respectable, and a guy like ginn going long...yeah i'll take that. their defense is going to be spread thin.

 

it really sounds like, tho, that they are more concentrated on him running and are more focused on stopping it. this only opens things up for other options. i love that they don't trust his arm.

If I were Cam, Wagner's comment would piss me off. Bulletin board material for sure.

Just read an article that Browner didn't practice yesterday but Avril was a full participant.

We simply need LaFell, Olsen or one of the mix of guys at #3 to have a coming out party IMO to win.

RBs and Smitty can't win this one IMO. It will be won elsewhere


Spot on.

Couldn't agree more. It needs to be used to keep the D off balance and guessing, not as our bread and butter.

Agreed. It's been said before but I would love to see a lot of Ginn/LaFell out wide with Smitty in the slot.

Nice write up Zod.  Interesting to see what their media is saying.

 

Rotator cuff tear is a bitch... don't see how you can play football with one torn...  my tear was very small, but I couldn't move my arm above shoulder height nor turn it out until I got it fixed.

If Cam is getting time in the pocket I think we will see Ginn come in.

I also don't want to see us ditch the read option plays, I just want them to be used in situations where they should be used. Not 2nd and 13 or 1 and 10 from the 20 with 2 minutes left.

I feel fortunate to have never had one, ouch that sounds awful.
