Our WR's can't get YAC's

31 posts in this topic

RG3's stats are just fluff, especially three games into this season as garbage time rolls around. He completes a 2 yard competion and it turns into a 25 yard play.

I'm glad he's getting the Cam Newton treatment now. Washington fans have been insufferable.

 

I said from day one he wasn't anything like people said he was. All you had to do was watch him play in college, it's like these analysts heard someone say something once and then they all just repeated each other.

It's a lot easier to read and listen to the garbage they spew about Newton after a win.

Some of this is on Newton, actually. The QBs job is to get the ball to the receiver in a way that makes it easier for them to get YACs.

@Rules&Regulations

 

I hear you. But as Jarhead said "it's still early. Let's wait and see'?

 

It's also safe to say, that Carolina's receivers aren't the toughest or shiftiest in the league as far as YAC is concerned. Carolina's receivers, don't even fight for, over defenders (on imperfect throws) as you see so many other receivers do all the time. 

 

Of course, KBarner, may have something to do with that, when he comes back, and if Cam/Shula runs screens for Ted Ginn. 

 

We'll see?

A lot of it is our passing scheme. Big chunk.

This league figures out all the young QB's, that's how it works. Those who can rise above it and stay one step ahead will eventually succeed. It was said of Cam repeatedly last year. Now these idiots need to man up that these guys may not be all that they continued to shove down our throats.

Cam need to lead his receivers with some of his throws. There was a completion to Olsen against the Giants where he was on his own but by the time he made the catch, he could barely stay in bounds. Actually it's been a while since I saw Cam complete a pass to a receiver in stride. Most have been on these come back routes and crossing routes (where they usually get tackled right away). Maybe a deep threat like Ted Ginn can help with that.

Not all that surprising when you have a longball gunslinger type quarterbacking a Coryell offense.

 

A lot of Newton's passes will be long in the air, meaning by the time they get to their target they'll likely have someone close to catching up (not necessarily close enough to cover, but close enough to tackle).  many will also be near the sideline or, as others have mentioned, in the end zone.

 

And yeah, Newton's ball placement isn't such that he hits a lot of guys in stride.  Receivers tend to have to adjust.  But again, since they tend to be long passes anyway, not that big a problem.

 

We're not running a WCO where you just throw it to a guy short and expect him to make something of it.  Granted, we are capable of doing that (especially with Smith and Ginn) but the attack isn't predicated on that sort of principle.

 

Long as it's effective, it's just a trade off.  No big deal.

Great points Mr. Scot!

 

Those plays will come.  Cam has to settle in and hit his receivers more in stride.  They need a few bad tackles and angles (which happen).  It will happen.  I'm not stressed so long as we can string together some win.

 

An appropriate Fox quote:  "Stats are for losers"

 

And Al Davis "Just win, baby"

 

I hope we can apply those two quotes much more frequently this season.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
