On Cam's near interception

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

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.

 

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

if throwing to Ginn, you would have to fit it in behind that LB and in between the CB. it appears he is throwing it to a spot outside away from Sherman, and the ball is already out of his hands.(judging from Cam's body, it appears he just followed thru after throwing the ball) so if Ginn is just now getting open, its hard to throw it to him when you do not  have the ball because it appears he already threw it to 89. can you take pics of the play at different times?

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 said the throw to him in the redzone for the TD was Cam's third read/option. Please stop.

Ah ok, it's why I caveated a little at the beginning of the sentence. I agree that the ball should have went to Ginn.  I hope Ginn is involved more vs the Bills...if Smitty is playing the slot a lot, we need to take a couple of deep shots to Ginn to give Smith better room to work with as the game goes on.

Biggest problem I have with that picture is that we're throwing on 3rd and 2.

Correct, on that play he looked to the corner of the end zone first and it was not there.

Cam can also run by the hole right behind kallil, the road to the first down is open.

Exactly. And it's a short 2 yards at that.

The strength of the Seattle D is their secondary, and we don't even run a play action here.

It's like we called a play for a third and long.

Just dumb play calling and a poor read by Cam.
