The only reason we arent patient is because of what Luck, Wilson and Kapernick are doin.
Average age of Super Bowl winning QBs

Cam leads the league in TDs since he's arrived in the league. Wilson and Kaepernick simply have better situations from coaching to personnel.

If Andy Reid and Alex Smith say anything...it's that a QB and a head coach can turn a bottom feeder into a winner in a hurry.

I just hope the new HC tells him to chill with the first down celebration. That thing is just embarassing at this "point".
at this point? I hated it the first time he did it.

i'm not worried about cam at all.
i'm worried about literally everything else. will our new coach keep cam? is gettleman competent enough to build a respectable team/coaching staff? will our studs stay with us (cam, hardy, kuechly, etc.)? the list goes on and on. right now we are cap-fuged from several absurd contracts. we won't be COMPLETELY out of that hole for another 2-3 years.
cam has improved, if you actually watch him play that much is clear. our offense has gotten worse, mainly because of age and scheme. as much as it pains me to say; smith is old, and is probably getting too much money for what he's doing on the field. gross is old, kalil is a beast and the rest of our OL is either young (silatolu) or straight up trash (bell, other rotating guard).
our defense is good enough, we've entered the last two drafts with our primary focus being defense and we've nailed them with landing kuechly and star. it's time to focus on the offense, we desperately need a #1 receiver now because smith is not that. obviously OL is a need too, and it should be a focus every year regardless of other needs. unfortunately, OL has been largely ignored.
i'll admit, i thought we were going to be much better this year and i suppose i overrated our receiving core and OL. it comes down to this: cam is not a peyton manning or a tom brady, he is very much so his own player, completely unprecedented. trent dilfer said it best; cam is not a surgeon, and i'm not sure he ever will be, but he doesn't need to be thanks to his other skills. manning is capable of working with sub-par O-lines (see his time in indy) and brady is capable of working with shitty receivers (ala this year). cam shouldn't ever run a pure pro-style offense or anything close to that really. he needs to run wild and take risks, that's when he's at his best.
