Are Cam and Rivera adjoined at the hip?

Recommended Posts

I see Dave Gettlemen as a GM that that has what he wants in players, coaches and offensive/defensive schemes all planned out in his mind.

 

I think we can all agree Rivera is gone but the bigger question is Cam gone with him? I think he meant his statement that Cam needs to win. By not signing a top WR or OL mean that he feels Cam has the tools to win ? He has been collecting cap space like a dog collects fleas but seems to feel we have the tools in place. Is he collecting this money to resign Cam or to replace him? I do not see Gettlemen buying the argument we did not have a Cam friendly scheme or the players he was surrounded by as being inferior. I feel he is old school and feels the qb should play in his scheme not the other way around. My opinion is we have bigger changes down the road other than Rivera.

 

We all like how Gettlemen has handled the cap now lets see how we like him with the changes he will make to the personal.

I don't think so, but Cam has to improve to stick around. DG can give him more time and build the supporting cast, if it doesn't work out he gets his own QB and puts him in a good situation.

I love Cam, but he has to get better in several areas or we need to part ways.

It's fan bases like this one that unequivocally deserve to suffer with a quarterback like Jimmy Clausen.

You must be a Baptist?

Are you becoming a permanent fixture around here? Not sure why you would but I'm just curious as to why a Bills fan is still here.

I say that they are adjoined only in the context they may both need to win to stick around. I do believe Cam has more wiggle room but I also believe his window of opportunity is closing. Cam is one of the better athletes in the league no question but he needs to prove he is one of the better qbs.

I agree he needs a better supporting staff but that begs the question if Gettlemen feels that way why has he not upgraded the talent? There appears to be a disconnect.

Lol you actually think Gettleman decides if Cam stays? If Cam leaves it will be because he wants to.

Except we have Cam for three more years. Gettleman could easily trade him for value at some point. So yeah, it's in Gettleman's hands.

Do I think Cam is gone? I don't know. I can see both scenarios.

Maybe we should trade Cam and draft somebody not as good as him. Sounds like a great plan.

 

 

Who said that?

Why, because we want to see our 1st overall pick cash in on his immense talent?

Cam like every other player has to show improvement in his decisions and accuracy.  Its one thing for a wr to drop a well thrown ball but to throw 6ft over their heads or in the dirt two yards in front of them makes a poor QB.  Clausen always ran to the sidelines and threw it out of bounds. Now Clausen iis gone and its up to Cam. The Golden Calf of Bristol is a great athlete but a poor QB. Is Cam a The Golden Calf of Bristol or is he a great QB. Time will tell.
