Am I the only one that is starting to miss Marty Hurney? For the first time in about 5 years, I believe that we have a team that can win but coaching is holding us back. Mark my word, Gettleman is wanting to see if Cam can be a pocket passer, which we all know he is not. Cam will be gone in 2 years b/c Gettleman feels that you must have a pocket passer to win in this league, he has said it before. Richardson should have hired a guy that wants to put a o-line and weapons around him. I really just don't buy what Gettleman is selling right now!!!!
Not hitting on CAM, but name one Running QB that has won a Super Bowl? The closest you will get is Steve Young and Joe Montana.
The last game CAM reminded my of Jake. Took to much on himself and tried to force throws to Steve Smith. This also makes me question if SS was beating him up about getting the ball to SS. Just a theory mind you.
I said it from the weeks leading up to the draft in 2011 that CAM's biggest down fall was his ability to read defenses. I see this still as his biggest down fall. If he can improve with his pre-snap reads, he will improve greatly. If not be ready for more games like last Sunday.
Let CAM be CAM. let him be more mobile. Let him stretch the play with his legs. A big down fall for a lot of QB's in this league is forcing them to be what they are not. Weinke was never going to work in a West Coast offense coming from a deep vertical passing attack in college. I said it when we drafted him that he would fail in this system. You have to put your players in a system that works to their strengths. This is one reason why the Patriots have done so well for so long. Their coaching staff brings in the players that fits their system. They don't draft a player or sign an FA and try to force them into a system that does not complement that players abilities.
I Had a feeling we would struggle this year with a new OC. Even if he is running a similar offense, there is nothing in the NFL that is 100% similar when it comes to OC or DC and how they run their schemes.
