Awesomeness!!

Does Cam make his WRs better?

137 posts in this topic

Tom Brady is sure making those receivers look great this year ain't he? How about that Russel Wilson only completing 8 passes and his TEAM blows out San Fran.

A quarterback can not make a suck ass receiver good. Coaching and Schemes can disguise the player weaknesses.

It's funny how "Elite" quarterbacks usually have good coaches. Aaron Rodgers can't even break the records Matt Flynn set and he can't start over fuging Pryor.

i know you want to hate, give Brady a few more weeks.  He has an entire new cast this year, he has to develop some rapport with them, it doesnt happen over night.

winner! QB and WR play is a symbiosis. at the extreme you have peyton who could make me look like an all-pro receiver because of his obscene accuracy, and then you have guys who can huck it up to an incredible receiver corps and look like world-beaters (we're seeing brady crash back to earth this season, and stafford/johnson and delhomme/smith come to mind as recent examples.)

used properly, cam definitely makes his receivers better. look what he's done for steve smith's career.

Good point Steve was wanting out of here before Cam put him back on the map

It doesn't matter who you have at QB and WR if the game plan and execution is total poo.

So Cam has played with Ginn and Hixon? No damn excuse he's fuging Tom Brady 3x Super Bowl Champion. No damn excuse for sucking ass like he has

Ginn is what the 4th option right now including Olsen?  Hixon doesnt even see the field so not sure why he is mentioned.  This is his third year with everyone else.  Both Smith and Olsen have had some of their better years these last two, so there is some give and take.  When Cam is on, he makes the wr's better, but when he is overthrowing them, obviously they wont look as good.

I don't know that I'd use McNabb as an example of someone who made his receivers better.

Tom Brady won several superbowls with Deon Branch as his number 1 WR. Donovan Mcnabb made Jason Avant and Todd Pinkston house hold names. I happen to think Peyton Manning has always been blessed with good/great WR's. Even Russel Wilson has made Golden Tate look competent. Either way, there are two different possibilities here. Either Cam doesn't make his teammates better, or Lafell, Gettis etc really suck.

Did you see Brady on the sideline when his receivers couldn't make him look good in the poring rain? Plus, brady throws 4 yard passes. Anybody can catch those and make it 2nd & 3. We're not that type of offense. Whatever people say it's the receivers who catches the footballs. No matter what name on the jersey.

No. Cam needs "good" receivers. He's not a Manning, Brady, Brees or Rodgers who can make scrubs look like Pro Bowlers. Cam needs to be put in a Matt Ryan position with two really damn good receivers and a reliable TE. Cam will struggle if weapons are not added. Put Peyton here in Carolina, and LaFail would instantly be a 1k yards receiver. That's just not who Cam is. He doesn't read defense fast enough and decision making is questionable.

hard to make them better if you dont throw to them, but no, i dont think he is on the Brady/Manning/Rogers level where the QB makes the wr's better than their actual talent.  Of course, I can only think of three like that so it's not that common.  Schemes, protection also play a role.

QB throws ball, WR catches ball. The QB is not capable of inducing a WR with the natural ability of getting open and catching a football. It's the reverse, the WR's sole purpose is to make the QB better. Put Calvin on any team and that QB will rack up 5000 yards. Even with a terrible side way throwing motion.

Not if he keep sailing passes.
