Help Wanted: Second Receiver

121 posts in this topic

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 guess this is what I was worried about. I like Cam being able to take care of the ball more but I don't want him second guessing or playing scared. If it is there, launch it. I understand that it was drilled in his hand to stay in the pocket more and limit the turnovers but this is football. You have to take chances.

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.

 

Agree with you 100%.

 

I was just making an observation that Cam looked different Sunday.  I only hope this is not the coaching staff trying to change Cam.  Add to his skillset....but don't kill what makes him great.

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 still disagree. When I re-watched I specifically watched LaFell. Cam locks on Smitty and Olsen. There were a few outs where LaFell's routes and separation were fine. Our QB wasn't looking.

to be honest, laFell is not a speedster.  He is never going to get great separation....Cam has the ability to put the ball in there.  I want to see him continue to do so.

Disagree.

 

Larger possession receivers get separation from running crisp routes and being physical. Lafell is doing neither.

He took very few shots last time..,

Does last years game accurately reflect who he is?

His eye were focused on the Hawks weakness and away from their huge strength. It wasnt a bad strategy

Cam is doing everything he said would do this offseason. Take care of the football and take what the defense gives him. In a game like this it was the right thing to do.

Also on that td to Steve Smith he did a great job going through his progressions. It's not like he was throwing ducks and interceptions everywhere. He made 1 or two bad throws the whole game. Greg Olsen doesn't drop those passes he probably throws for over 200 yards.

According to Rivera at his pressed yesterday, they were still limiting AE as a precaution because of his hammy. He said he will get more reps this week.

We'll see if it makes any difference.

We really need a big tall possession wr. Someone Can can trust besides Olsen and Smith.

There were not really any available in FA if I recall.

I hope they sign Nicks. I hate looking towards next year's FA already

If Nicks can stay healthy he's my top FA wish.

    • This is a huge cop out and it says that the only way to save our beloved means of governing is to bail out of the system and then have a revolution and start over again. You fix the system by casting knowledgeable votes in every frikkin' election. Every election. Local, state and federal. The situation is screwed right now because frikkin' lazy voters don't take the time to learn anything about their local candidates, or their state ones (here in NC that really bit us in the ass, didn't it?). Those elections lead to the ones above them AND frikkin help decide who will be taking part in primaries and even putting in the votes for the electoral college. An educated and willing electorate also tears the crap out of big money donors and tends to churn the political offices for the good of all. But no, a bunch of folks just drag themselves out of their cocoons to cast a vote for the president and maybe check off a box or two of people whose names sound familiar every four years. And then we've got the whiniest and most self righteous of the bunch, like you, who say that votes don't matter and they aren't going to get involved in the whole corrupt system. They march around smug and whining, putting on airs of intellectual superiority while complaining about every frikkin thing under the sun. Get up, learn your candidates and start voting local and up. All politics is local. ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. Your town council or Board of Education or County Commission matters. Your State senators and representatives matter. BIG FRIKKIN TIME HERE. Doing this is how you really start reforming the system. This is how you start beating back the machinery in place that goes and grabs people by the busload and brings them to the polls to elect idiots and thieves. And then, maybe, just maybe, you run for office or volunteer some time to work for a candidate you believe in. You attend meetings and voice your opinions and hold politicians accountable, those in your own backyard first. And buy a frikkin' newspaper once in a while or buy an ad in one. No matter what crap the politicos try to tell you, those guys and gals scribbling notes at government meetings and then getting ink stains from printing the stories are your first line of defense and your best teachers. But stop acting all superior about not voting. Really, be a responsible adult. You have to work for it. Our republic doesn't have a reset button like your Xbox.
    • Steve Smith. Receiver, actually. No worries though.
    • With CJ's back issues I'm not even sure how good I feel this year.  If he's a full go and we do go DE at 8 on paper it's top front 7 of all time worthy.
