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.

You started out great, could agree with everything you said. Then you just kinda went...a little south.

When the post season does get here, these are exactly the type of games that you may need to win. It may have been ugly, but it was a win. On the road, against a very good team, with a very good Defense.

Wait until we actually do lose before you want answers only a lose can provide.

 

 

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

I see more comparisons I guess. Lots of similarities on Offense and Defense. They may be a tad more aggressive offensively, but we both are methodical, time consuming O's that can score at the end of those drives.

Defenses both want to apply pressure, they just have fewer athletes, and more injuries.

Play good football, move the ball and score, sounds like the same team. Just different approaches.

I never said he doesnt need to improve, he stunk it up the first half.

 

I'm just saying, it was good to see him get over his slow start and make the throws that ended up counting the most.

As far as the drops go, I'd say they even out with the over the head, behind the receiver, one handed catches that are made.

I think the one in your signature works. 

 

I'll take a panthers win over a fantasy win anytime.

I'm sure we all remember that dirt ball he threw into the end zone [maybe to a tight end?  Brockel?] last year.  Could have won the game for us.  We lost instead.  What game was that?  Anyway, the kid showed TREMENDOUS poise, throwing accurate balls right at the sticks.  Those were clutch throws.  We have proven we can blow inferior teams out.  We proved Sunday that we can "turn the corner," and win close games through clutch plays.  Granted, we had a case of the fumbles at the end, and that has to be cleaned up, we still made the play to get the ball back.

So let me get this straight.

 

We're currently on a five game win streak with a 6-3 record, the first time we've had a winning record since 2008, and you are bringing up a loss that happened over a year ago? I guess we should talk about the games our defense lost for us in 2011 and 2012 as well?

 

Our team is stepping up together, and winning.

 

It's seems that some people in our own fan base would rather see this team lose, than our quarterback play well.

I think you missed the point.  I only brought that up to show the contrast in Cam's game.  If anything, I was praising his improvement.  Follow?

Without the drops he'd have been around 60% and over 200 yards against a beastly defense. Also, this is after a bad start in which all the usual dipshit trolls resurfaced with the usual "derp there goes the game derp fug you cam derp" trash posts. He was money on 3rd and recovered after a bad start which is major progress and a welcome sight if you're not a shitposter who is still gazing fixedly at their Andrew Luck Stanford poster over the bed.
