Cam's not a great pocket passer. We need to stop trying to force a square peg thru a round hole and play to his strengths.

 

That's what I'm afraid of.  If that is the case, we need to split ways right now.  There will never be a day where an athletic QB is successful consistently.  NFL defenses are just too fast and too smart.

I don't get where you get the idea "athletic" QB don't use their brains and don't dissect defenses with their arm? You are never going to rush more than you throw in a season as a QB.

Um. There was this guy named Steve Young. He was athletic. I also remember him being pretty successful.

We drafted Cam. He's our quarterback.

For all the motherfugers out there who have a problem with that, deal with it or find a new team.

It's too early to say cam's not a pocket passer but he's been doing good so far 3td's and 1int and 60% completion if im correct

Guys like Steve Young and John Elway were athletic to be sure.  Yet those qualities weren't their main attributes.  They were trump cards.  Steve Young career wise has the best quarterback rating I believe at over 90%.  The guy could throw the ball.  When you look at Cam's stats, he hasn't thrown for over 300 yards since the Bears game in his rookie year.  I find things like that to be a little strange.

I'm looking at Green warming up, arguably already the best receiver in the game. I'm thinking did we make the right choice here?


Did Calvin Johnson pull a Barry Sanders? What am I missing?
