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.

Cam is still Cam.

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

 

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 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.

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 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.
