So what you're saying is that 71.7% of his passing yardage is based soley on his ability alone and that is a league high?

Hang on, my homer glasses are dusty....

Meaningless stat but very interesting nonetheless. Stewart and a fully healthy Tolbert can likely help. The few screens we've tried have failed.

It is very hard to screen with a qb like Cam as the defense will have players spying on him on all plays, those spies will also be in great position to get to the screen receiver.

No screens == less YAC.

Same reasoning with quick throws, Cam can buy himself time so no need to use them (of course unless your RT is named Bell and Mario Williams are on the other team...).

That, and the strongest arm in the league.


This isn't madden, we have no yac because our receivers do not create seperation. Simple as that, it's not like they catch the ball and stop running.

Talent and ability are overused words. Replace talent with skill and ability with nothing. Just use skill, their all talented, we get it.

Three things.

 

Scheme

 

Cam

 

WR's and RB's

 

I don't worry about Yac as much as I worry about us getting into the endzone, that's the only thing that matters to me.

Colin looks as bad as I thought he was. I never thought he passed the proverbial eye test but still managed to get it done. He has no form and in my opinion is awkward in the pocket. He's fast, he can throw the hell out of the ball but he is not as accurate as he needs to be to beat man to man consistently, especially if his receivers continue to struggle and the play calling stays the same.

ESPN put him up, it's time for the fans to start tearing him down. I feel for him because he's not in an ideal situation offensively and their play calling was unimaginative as can be.

 

The only thing I see CK being able to make plays off of is designed roll outs. Or he waits in the pocket until protection breaks down and makes a play when coverage has to break.

I agree, it just seems to me he is no skills as they pertain to the QB position. I've seen him hit guys on 30 yard across the field throws but never over the top. I believe it will all come out soon enough after he gets more games under his belt. He's the hot thing right now because he's on a team built to go all the way no matter who is at QB.

After watching Colt McCoy in the preseason, I believe he is truly better at being a QB, than Kaep is. Under a true QB coach I believe he could do well but Cleveland has been a career waste plant for the past 15 years. Kaep just scrambles around till someone breaks open which is why he had trouble against the Colts and Hawks. Not accurate enough to throw to his guys in tight man to man coverage.

Not to make this a Kaep Cam comparison but the throws to Olsen that were dropped were either wide open throws, or the throw where Olsen slid to avoid a hit and Cam fit it inbetween 2 guys 40 yards downfield. That's the difference.
