they don't show up after wins. they most definitely have been here. there are several that showed up a couple weeks ago after being absent for a long time but as soon as things started turning around they disappeared. 

 

there were also some in here who had kept those opinions quiet for a while who started to be more vocal once there were more criticizing cam, but then they started supressing those comments

 some may have been won over, but for the most part the cam haters are quiet and/or absent when things are going well.

 

Pretty much. You have the boisterous handful, but the "amen" choir gets somewhat froggy and emboldened whenever the trolls rear their ugly heads.  It would seem that anyone who comes here regularly would know that, and it amuses me when people ask "Where are all these (fill in the blank) at?" 

 

I still continue to have a wait-and-see attitude when it comes to Cam. I definitely believe that he is headed in the right direction, but I am not yet ready to say that he has arrived.  At the same time, I am no where close to calling Cam a bust, and I don't believe that we'd be doing ourselves any favors by throwing him out with the bathwater after the season if it comes to that (which doesn't appear likely at the moment).

I think dink and dunks is prudent for Cam until we get him another threat/playmaker on offense.   Maybe throw a bomb here and there obviously but I like this strategy.  I love the dump off RB screen and it's working well, if Stewart can come back healthy he's really good at those so that is exciting.

Still needs to throw the ball away before getting sacked.  But kind of hard to hate on Cam with these last two games.  He is doing what he should be doing.  But to say the "haters" is still not here is retarded.  Was he holding on the ball to long in the first part of the season? Yes.  Was he making good decisions? No

Has he worked on that and improved? Yes

 

I hope he keeps it up but if regresses I will be here to point it out.

As soon as any QB throws 2 interceptions in a row they'll be back.

 

"So guys... is it time we trade ___________ ?"

That guy on ESPN first fake is starting to call Cam a "Game manager" . He tries and fails misiberaly to discredit Cam every chance he gets.

" In American football, a game manager is a quarterback who, despite relatively poor individual statistics such as passing yards and touchdowns, manages to perform well enough to win games. [1][2] Game managers often benefit from strong defense and rushing offense on their teams. The player is expected to not lose games with interceptions, fumbles, or poor decisions, particularly during important situations near the end of a game. [3][4] "

Cam has put the team in plently of positions to win in the past,only to have the defense or coaches take their foot off the gas peddle.

That is how it is with everything.  When things are going well people are content.  When they are not people complain.  I haven't heard much from the Shula complainers or the Rivera complainers either.  But they are lurking just the same waiting for the next poor game or bad decision in order to pop back up and start bitching again.  Why would it be different with Cam as well?

cam is playing better because the coaches are using him better. they arnt asking him to do as much, and at this stage in his development it is a perfect fit. He is getting better like any young QB should be. he still has his faults, like not getting rid of the ball, but he is making better passing decisions. ill take that tradeoff most days.

I'm by no means a Cam hater, but it feel like every year Cam has a stretch of a great couple of game, and then lays an egg. He has looked great for 2 games lol....2 games.... and against awful teams. I hope he is making strides and his success is sustained but I'm not completely sold yet either.

Lol as if cam gives a poo about what some of you guys think about nitpicking every idiosyncracy he displays in the game

A lot of us aren't being nuthuggers but simply aren't going to waste time writing paper bricks about how cam doesn't have what it takes because of some stupid poo like his body language or how his footwork looks when defenders breach the line unblocked as soon as the ball snaps

somewhat different scenarios between Cam and Rivera..  

 

I hope Rivera stays the course and continues to get his team to show up on gameday.
