I constantly hear about Cam needs to improve on this and that, and not hear that same standard applied to other QB's in the league. Everything the guy does gets scrutinized more than any other player in the league. With that said, through the objective lens, last week had some horrible quarterbacking (when the Cam standard is applied).
Matt Ryan, L 34/54 (needs to improve accuracy, and had an interception) what's his excuse with his stable of receivers?
Big Ben 36/51 pretty good, but had a costly turnover and fumble in a L. 2 turnovers! must play much better.
Shaub 31/49 not good, 2 int, horrible accuracy, and 2 costly turnovers in a game where they lost by one fg
Flacco 25/50, not good, 5 INT!!!! imagine if Cam threw 5 INT, he would be the headline story in all media
Cutler 27/47 3INT 1 fumble, 4 turnovers!! wow, haven't heard a peep compared to what we would hear about Cam
Alex Smith 24/41 2 int!! they still won in a blowout, but against the Giants, this type win despite playing badly
Luck 22/36 1 int, Jags... nuff said, but he didn't play well but didn't need to
Tannehill 22/35 decent, but 3 int, 1 fumble 4 turnovers killed them... not being killed like Cam would be
Vick 14/27 no td, no turnovers... blowout loss to Den
Palmer 21/38 2 int, could have lost the game, but won... definitely not his doing
Stafford 23/35 decent 1 int, 1 fum, (against Cutler) still didn't play well enough for the win, they were handed the game
RG3 18/31 decent, played lowly Raiders, but definitely wasn't a good game, Cam would still be criticized for his play
Eli Manning... leading the NFL in int... we all know their troubles.. he has rings but def not receiving the Cam treatment
Gabbert 3 int... Jags
Russel Wilson 12/23 123 yards, 1 int, 49.7 rating... got the W, but lets see him receive the Cam treatment... crickets. That defense won that game... oh what a luxury.
The point is, as these QB stats have shown, there is more than one way to win. Many played horribly if scrutinized under the Cam standard, but I've heard nothing. If Cam plays like any of these players, he's hearing it all week. I left out Brees, Manning, and Brady since they are in their own league, Rodgers had a bye, and the rookies don't count.
We are getting QB play that is good enough to win. Cam is as good at the minimum, and better than most if not all of these guys, but has had a lot of bad luck, and tons of hate. These guys are hyped up but don't deserve much of it. Yes most have a lot more wins, but they are winning despite their failures.
Innacuracy, turnovers, etc are plaguing these guys, but not a peep. Keep pounding Cam, we're in good hands.
