Help Wanted: Second Receiver

121 posts in this topic

Is it just me....I went to FanFest...watched most of the pre season snaps for Cam...and then the Seahawks game and Cam only looks for Smith and Olsen.    Is it me? (For right now I'm thinking this trait....to lock in on receivers....is what separates Cam from the truly elite talent in the league).

What we REALLY need is the Old Cam back.

 

Cam is a big armed, big play QB.  He is a gunslinger and has the ability to make big plays.

 

I am not sure if it was his focus on not turning the ball over.....or too much respect for the Hawks secondary....or the coaching.  But, he MUST take shots down the field for this offense to be effective.

 

Don't get me wrong....this is not a bash Cam post.  Only that we need him to trust his arms and let it fly.

Cam definitely locks in one one receiver. I don't know if you can tell from the stands or on television, but he rarely scans the entire field.

No it's not just you....I said it a few posts ago.

Cam is still Cam.

Saw last year that the Hawk secondary dictates what he tries to do

Wait. We "learned" we needed a #2 receiver in week 1? I can't speak for everyone else, but personally I've known that since 2009. I was in college the last time we had a bona fide WR. If its just dawning on us now, we've got larger issues than a sub par showing in week 1. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using CarolinaHuddle mobile app

You may have suspected, as we all did, but the proof for this 2013 squad was not provided until Sunday.

He took very few shots down the field on Sunday.....even when the WR was open.

 

He needed to trust his arm anc challenge their DB's a few more times.

 

Cam is and always will be a high risk and high reward type of QB....it is who he is.  And, he is damn good at it.  Don't lose track of what makes him great while trying to develop other aspects of his game.

I'm going to need to see him play against a team that doesn't have arguably the best D in the league before making this assessment.

I saw LaFell open a few times. I felt like it was more Cam being locked on Smitty and Olsen.

I didn't other than twice. Chancellor and/or Thomas were always lurking. So what might appeared like a great read at first could have been a pick.

The fact is Ginn Jr got more separation than LaFell (our #2).

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
