can this guy block like a muhfuga?
Dang good for a TE. He loves to hit, many felt he should play DE at UNC but he was to good a weapon at O to move him (Though he has played some snaps on D)
Everyone is Freaking out about the OL, Yes that is something that needs to be looked at.
But it doesn't matter how good you OL and QB is. If you don't have the weapons its moot
We have had Tons of injuries this year on OL (have a guy who was a DT for us last year on the OL now)
There is a Good possibility that Gross will be back for at least another year or 2 (especially with us having a team to make a deep playoff run).
Cam is big and Mobile so he can get out of some of the pressure situations unlike 85% of the rest of the QB's in the league.
I counted at-least twice this past week where Cam got out of the pressure and Cam waited around and NO ONE not One person could get open so the 3rd down play ended up with a incomplete or they eventually got to Cam for the Sack. Cam had plenty of time on quite a few pass attempts but no one could get open and eventually they would get a coverage sack. Over half of Cams sacks this year haven't come on 3-4 seconds, they have come where he drops back cant find anybody then5-6 plus seconds in they finally get to him.
Many people Begged and Begged to get Cowher as coach. Look at him for example in Pittsburgh. They had a top D like us, pounded the rock like us, had a big physical mobile QB who was one of the toughest to get down in the NFL....like us
Also like us the OL didn't do their QB any favors. "Big Ben" had probably one of the bottom 2-3 OL in the whole NFL. He did have the weapons though which helped him (that their is what we Don't have).
Right now OL is probably 3rd on list of needs right now with this team. WR/TE, DB, OL
This OL is not any worse than the one when Cam broke the rookie records and we had a top 5 O in the league (just had bottom 5 at the time prior to Luke Star etc)
