On Cam's near interception

Here is a capture from the pass to Smith that was nearly intercepted.

Things I notice ...

 

3 defenders on the right with 2 options. 2 defenders on the left with 2 receivers.

 

A) Smitty is not open. He is covered up pretty well by the DB. The underneath taken away by the linebacker.

 

B ) Ginn, hidden behind fox logo, is open and looking for the ball. He ran a great route and got the needed separation.

 

C) Lafell apparently is neither open nor looking for the ball.

 

D) Pretty decent pass protection, except for Bell.

 

 

Watching the play, Cam never takes his eyes off Smith, sadly.

The result of the play was a 4th down punt.

Ginn was breaking away at this moment. Really difficult to step into a deep throw when the defender is where he is at that particular moment. I'd of rather he scrambled on this play given how good the coverage on Smith is, but I don't think the deep ball is really an option given the pressure here.

 

Other QB's make that timing route play routinely. Its not that difficult. He isn't throwing to Ginn, but to a spot Ginn will be at.

I am sure they will be going over film telling him the same thing.  He is so comfortable with Cam, and Smitty makes good catches even being double teamed it might seem the best option.  Still I saw several times when Ginn was open down the field.  Hopefully we take some shots to him this week.  He could be a huge weapon if we use him properly.

I don't know....that Seattle MLB is playing Cam's eyes....looks like one step to his right and he jumps into the passing lane where Ginn looks to be setting up shop.

 

Smith at least is running away from Sherman and Cam into a lane between the two defenders underneath.

I rewatched the game last night and looked at the play a couple times. Lafell get open a little and look at Cam, but it would've been a risky throw and possible pick six. I didn't notice Ginn open. A deep throw to Ginn probably would've been the choice.

For some reason it didn't seem like Cam was going through reads like he usually does. He usually looks at a couple receivers unless his first read is wide open, but Sunday he locked on Smitty and Olsen Delhomme style. Next practice they should make Cam only target the other receivers so they can work on chemistry.

Smitty also lobbies for the ball like no other receiver in the game. Ginn may need to step up and get in Cam's ear about how open he is.

I think the problem here is, from the pic, it looks like Bell completely whiffs on his man and forces Cam to throw quick - and when Cam has to get rid of the ball quickly, he's usually throwing it to one of Olsen or Smith.

Cam was definately staring down too much.. hopefully he'll clean that up and spread the ball around more.

The pic is deceiving. I can count a good 4 Mississippi before he throws.
