I counted Cam going 6/8 61 yards

 

Those are pretty solid numbers and he made the critical throws when it mattered most.

the boxscore story is Cam was awful.

 

The reality was very, very different - his first few drives were awful, but he was killer on 3rd down and he had a lot of dropped balls after the first quarter that would have really changed the look of his numbers.

 

Cam played a good game overall, made the plays he needed to, and really got out of the funk he was in early it seemed.  Ofc, he continues to misfire deep, which is kind of weird given his strength there the previous two seasons... but I'm not concerned, he will figure it out.

A lot of the reason i think he misfires down field is he kind of stutters like a real quick pump fake, and then he leans back before spinning it down field which pushes his shoulders up causing the ball to sail. Hes leaning back because he should have already thrown the ball but since he does the stutter, the pocket collapses more.

It really sucks that dropped passes count as incompletions and poor marks for the QB, without them Cam would have had 4-5 less incompletions in the game.

Cam is money on the money down.  He has been improving in the areas he has needed most.

Those third down conversions were gigantic.  Forced San Fran to burn all of their timeouts when all they needed was a field goal to win.

He was a little too geeked up early, once he settled down and settled in he played pretty well.

 

The NE defense has decent overall numbers, but they are 30th in the NFL in rush defense, and they haven't played a QB quite like Cam yet.  I am not saying they haven't faced a QB as good as Cam, after all they played Brees recently, but they haven't played a QB that can cause as many issues with his feet as his arm.

 

It will be interesting to see how they handle it.  Their defense does not have the type of  team speed that San Fran has.  They are big and physical, but not very fast.

 

Where as last week we saw two teams that are so similar, this week you will see teams that are polar opposites

Manuel and Buffalo. They should've won.

Cam can and should be playing better. He had a poor game and if we had lost everyone would be talking about it.

You guys defend him no matter what and it gets old. Even Cam knows he needs to be better. These kind of mistakes in the post season will lose the game easy. Yes he made some good plays but a number one overall pick should be after three years. He has been playing poorly the past couple games and what I'd really like to see is him play how he did when he first started winning several games ago; throwing the check downs, making smart plays and taking what the defense gives him.
