Quick Note From Tampa Game

Brady, Manning, Brees makes that throw and guess what, they get the PI call

 

Really! Seems Brady didn't get his way in this year game when they throw the flag on Keek and pick it up. It doesn't happen all the time. But they do get those calls sometime because of they are stars in this league.

Well I want complain. We got away with a few like that in the past few weeks or so. So it happens. Cam just has learn and move on. It happens to all teams.

A valid point, but I thought it worth pointing out that this wasn't as bad of an error as it initially looked on TV, especially since Cam still gets unfairly saddled with the "poor passer" moniker.

Contact or not Cam can't make that throw. He was pressured and his feet were literally off the ground as he fell back and threw. Gotta take a sack sometimes.

Not so much a sack, but trying to get out of the pocket and throw it away. One of Cams problems is that sometime he hangs onto the ball to long. He needs to get rid of it more instead of taking a sack and costing us yards on a drive.

From what I'm seeing in this photo. And I know this is debatable and all. But instead of Cam forcing the ball. He could have very easy took off to his left and ran for some yards instead. It looked like at the time that Gross was pushing the pass rush into the inside and it would have open the whole field for Cam to run like usual. I understand the staff wants him to be more a pocket passer and instead of taking off. But Cam should of seen that coverage and taken off. But again it is debatable. That is just my opinion. That is all. :)

Actually his checkdown receiver is the H-back out in the flat to his left. This is not a good situation to run in, zone defense and no blockers ahead of him.

This doesn't concern me one bit, because the game was pretty much over at this point anyways.

 

I heard Smitty on WFNZ as well. I think he was suppose to run a drag route, to pull the LB down, but either way Cam shouldn't have thrown the pass, and could've easily just hit Brockel for 4 to 6 yards, maybe even a first, if he breaks a tackle.

Is there a gif of video of this?

 

Stuff like this happens all the time (illegal contact) so yeah, I'm not really complaining either, but I would like to see it in motion to see what Cam was thinking here.

Smitty may think his job was to pull David over, but there's no way that coverage called for 3 defenders on Smitty, especially in zone.

 

And Brockel was the better option, no denying that.

it was a bad throw and it's on Cam end of story. It's routine for him to make I would say around 2-3 very poor throws per game on average. He's getting better, but we can't expect to get to the superbowl with him playing like that. 

 

His 2-3 bad throws a game could be the difference between a shootout or a blowout against the saints.

Every quarterback in the league has 2-3 very poor throws per game, even the elites.

I think Smith knows what his job is more than you.

He may know what his route was intended to do, but he can't know what the defense chooses to do in response. Lavonte took LaFell; he wasn't going after Smith, period.

Agreed. 

 

I had said during the game, that: 1) Lafell could have caught that ball, cause other top Receivers do all the time; 2 )Smith fell down or ran the wrong route on that near Revis INT;  3) Lafell fell down or was knocked out the play for the second INT, and it didn't appear as bad as people thought, but the announcers were always quick to blame Cam. 

 

Plus, the game was well in hand, and Cam/Carolina just got greedy on that second pick.
