I always find it humorous, when I hear "Cam can't read defenses", when it's clear that "celebrated" guys like Griffin and Kaepernick, are much worse, and therefore protected in their offensive schemes because of it. Luck is not that great either. But at least he, Cam and Tannenhill have earned what ever they got (and therefore don't put up the efficient numbers of a RG3, Kaepernick or Wilson did last year). I've always liked those three and Wilson, more than I've liked RG3 and Kaepernick.
It's amusing to view Huddler's carp on and on about Cam's short and intermediate throws (which he can certainly improve on) as well. Do Huddler's realize, guys like Eli Manning are so bad at it, the Giants don't even throw screens and similar passes for the past several years. It's a rarity/curse word with them. Lol. That's how bad Eli Manning is with screens, being a Gun Slinger type. Are some here even aware of this (along with Eli's inconsistent play, even during his Supe Bowl winning years)?
And of course, all QB's make mistakes, start of slow; have good and bad patches, etc.. That's the nature of the game. But Cam seems to be the only one many Huddler's think is like that. Of course Ron Rivera doesn't help any, by not giving his QB chances to win/close out games (like last week against Buffalo), leaving bitter memories while the Panthers lose, instead of erasing them with sweet victory.
For example: Luck didn't do much on Sunday, in the Colts victory (is was mostly the defense and run game). He did his job basically. Nothing special. However, he'll get all the credit, accolades and spoils that come with the victory. So his performance (or 167 or so yds) won't be scrutinized in the least (along with being the "chosen one" in many media's eyes). Good for him! I'm not hating.
The point is: Cam can certainly improve. No argument there. But I think many Huddler's need perspective, and are way out of line on their expectations and criticisms of Cam. This is especially true, if they actually watched other teams and QB's (IMHO) as they say they do. The games have an ebb and flow (Peyton Manning not withstanding). Lol And even Manning, will have bad throws, games or stretches--as he has. No one is ever perfect through out, especially a Gun Slinger type, with Mediocre receivers who usually don't fight for, come back to the ball, or make incredible catches to save him/make Cam look good, as others appear to do routinely for their QB's. And od course, coaching means a great deal as well. However, I've always/already beaten that dead horse.
Sometimes I wonder if many Huddler's have ever watched other QB's/Games in the NFL besides Cam and The Panthers??
