It's funny how this forum responds to any negative criticism of Cam. All of OP's thoughts are reasonable.
Reasonable? Based on what? Is Cam perfect? No. Does he throw off his back foot at times? Yes. Does he make bad decisions at times? Yes.
But so what? Anyone who's actually watched quarterback play will see that every quarterback alive does these things to varying degrees. Nobody's remotely close to perfect, even the QBs OP thinks Cam has to be compared to. Brady's deep ball has abandoned him, Peyton can't throw a deep out to save his life, Rodgers uses his mobility just as much as Cam does to extend plays, Brees is mortal outside of a dome, Andrew Luck makes even dumber decisions than Cam but has a horseshoe lodged in his rectum, etc. etc.
Is Cam a franchise quarterback? Yes, by a factor of a billion.
The fact that someone even asks the question shows their obvious ignorance on what a franchise quarterback looks like.
So, if I come off as judgmental and anal about the topic; well, it's because I am a raging asshole and DGAF. And I'm right.
