#2018216 Give Cameron the Game Ball

Posted by fieryprophet on 26 November 2012 - 11:58 PM

Those high throws happen when he decides to throw before his feet are aligned. But when he plays like tonight and settles into his throws they are gorgeous. That throw to Olsen off his back foot was beautiful.

I will be watching every single snap, of course. . .I might have some extra rum on hand, though.

Anderson would have started. And what good does any of that stuff do us this season?

Do you really think is being out there now getting pounded and looking bad is doing him good? I'm sure as heck not seeing it.

All lessons he could easily have gained with a season of 'watch and learn'.

Watch and learn is a farce. You develop by playing. Was Peyton Manning ruined by throwing 28 INTs? Was John Elway ruined by being on atrocious teams for his first few seasons? Cam will come around; hell, at least now he's learning how much more there is to the game that is outside of his control. This season may end up benefiting him more than last season ever did, because he knows his efforts have not been up to par.

See the questions above.

If Newton had sat last season, I firmly believe there would have been no switch to a read-option this year.

How is it Cam's fault they switched to a read option? My God, man, we don't blame the soldiers on the battlefield for following orders that turn out to be misguided. Switching to the read option is the coaches failure, not Cam's.

Ya'll do these wrong, just set it to win out based on winning percentage, than keep knocking off teams that show up in the 6th spot until we do. We just need the Giants, Bucs, Vikings, and Seahawks to go 1-5.

Well shiiit. . .

#2011827 Alex Smith got benched

Posted by fieryprophet on 22 November 2012 - 01:22 AM

The 49ers just benched the previous NFC offensive player of the week, a guy who is completing 70% of his passes this year, went 18/19 against Arizona two weeks ago and a 153 passer rating, took his team to a 6-2 record, after going 13-3 last year and ending up in the NFC championship game while beating our divisional rivals, the Saints, in spectacular fashion.....all to get just a little bit better.

If only our FO would have the same balls and sense to do the same with Newton I would personally buy an entire stack of beautiful, and plush Carolina Panthers towels and deliver them to Cam to keep him busy on the bench...right next to Pickles where they can both hide under them and play Angry Birds on their iPhones.

I hope your turkey burns.

I can't remember her name but the chick from 'Joe dirt' and 'my name is Earl' is from NC....not saying much though, lol.

Jaime Pressly. . .she's from my hometown (Kinston.)

She plays Eastern North Carolina white trash woman down to a tee on My Name Is Earl.

That I was told by an ex coach of the Panthers that Cam struggled to read defenses.

That ex-coach is an ex-intelligent person then.

Ernie Accorsi wouldn't have been brought in to find a GM if the job was going to Beane.

#2010037 Dear Mr. Accorsi...

Posted by fieryprophet on 20 November 2012 - 03:44 PM

simply put, leaders help set the tone for the team...get others involved and passionate about what is going on and their role in it helping them put every bit of effort into it. they help with focus and determination. it's the difference between a team that is fired up and fights and one that just comes and collects a paycheck. that doesn't come naturally for many. it's easy for people to get lost or discouraged along the way, but it's the role of the leader to help get them back on track.

teams that come back from a loss most certainly have been effected by leadership because while some teams may just throw up their hands and say, "ahhhh....f*ck it. we're sunk." others have a good way of getting back into the game and even winning it. teams don't do that kind of thing unless they believe they can do it and those teams usually have leaders who have gotten through to enough players and made them feel like they can help turn this thing around.

leaders help with vision and help every person feel like a valued part of making that vision a reality.

If you go by that criteria, then I don't know why we're questioning the leadership on this team. They've played hard every week despite having their hearts ripped out repeatedly, and in spite of some of the worst coaching this side of the Cowboys. The players parking lots is full on the team's day off. And the amount of sniping between players is a faint whisper compared to the full blown circus that is the Jets. We have leaders on this team; the poor results falls on a lack of leadership and accountability at the highest level of the coaching staff.

I think what this all boils down to is that a lot of idiot fans don't like what they see out of Cam, despite the fact that Cam simply is not the kind of person to fake who he is, and is still struggling to find the balance in how he carries himself with his teammates while earning their respect. He's trying to change, just look at his press conferences, but if he starts walking around alternating between screaming at his teammates and sitting stoic on the sidelines it's going to come off as fake and contrived. We need coaching leaders, and the rest will fall into place.

#2009983 Dear Mr. Accorsi...

Eh - player leaders aren't the most important thing in the world but you'd be foolish to discount the value of an emotional leader on the field. Ray Lewis, for instance, had an impact on that Ravens defense far beyond what his (admittedly plentiful) talent brought to the field. The same could probably be said for Breesus in New Orleans. We could make a list. Units with an emotional team leader on the field with them can play with an edge that teams without that often don't have.

I wouldn't focus on leadership above other things but I certainly wouldn't treat it as an afterthought.

I wouldn't want a team of squabbling children, for sure, but ever notice that only high profile players are ever considered "leaders?" Nobody gives a rip what some backup tight end does, even if he's the first one in and the last to leave, because he's a nobody in the media's mind. They lavish accolades on Tom Brady's leadership ability when the Patriots eke out Super Bowls and then question his standing in the locker room when they lose them. It's a farce, simple and plain, and one that fans willingly buy into because it makes them think that all it would take is a little bit of magical thinking to solve the team's problems.

Anytime leadership gets discussed on this board I just roll my eyes and wonder just what the hell people here know about the subject.

#2008241 Anyone here concerned with Cam's future (next year)?

Posted by fieryprophet on 19 November 2012 - 01:48 PM

To the contrary, every GM and Head Coach prospect will be drooling over the possibility of having Cam as the franchise QB .

Exactly. You think Jeff Fisher decided to go with St. Louis over Miami because the Rams had won a Super Bowl more recently? The Rams had a QB, the Fins at that time didn't.

I guarantee you that after Rivera's firing a lot of coaches are going to be throwing their hats in the ring for a chance to ride Cam's coattails.
