#2456159 Cam Back in the Spotlight

Posted by fieryprophet on 29 October 2013 - 03:45 PM

Steve probably didn't say anything because what Belotti said wasn't that insulting. Steve asked a question and Belotti gave him his opinion. The End.

 

In fact, if you listen closely Belotti compliments Cam as well. Says he seems to have come around this year and that he is a big, strong, tremendous athlete and things come natural for him. He then also tells Steve "I'm just saying this but you would know because you are out there playing (with him)". 

 

That's not a compliment; it's the NFL, everyone is a big, strong, tremendous athlete. It's just more code-speak for "he's talented but he's lazy." Calling an NFL player talented or athletic doesn't mean squat to them, because it's as obvious as day, but questioning their work ethic is as big a taboo as there is in the league because that's an easy way to end up blackballed (see: Vince Young.)




#2456085 Cam Back in the Spotlight

Posted by fieryprophet on 29 October 2013 - 03:05 PM

this.

 

anyone questioning if smitty actually has cam's back needs to go outside for a LOOOOOOONNNNG walk.
 

 

I pretty certain that Smitty does back Cam, but still.

Let me put it this way: Steve has called Cam his little brother. I have a little brother. If someone questioned my brother's work ethic I would immediately put them on blast, because that poo don't fly with me.

But it's ok when smitty does it, right?

 

Smitty wouldn't taunt a guy who wasn't involved in covering him and was just trying to do his job chasing down the play. if Tate had kept his antics directed at Jenkins it wouldn't bother me, but McLeod was just trying to chase him down.

Pretty sure he was taunting Jenkins as well.  He turned around and did a 'keep running your mouth' gesture with his hand as soon as he caught it over Jenkins, then did the wave to McLeod as he was crossing the goal line.

 

Tate, from what I've heard, is a pretty big Smitty fan.  I wouldn't be surprised if that had a part in him doing the taunt.

 

Smith would NEVER pull a move like that. Tate wasn't pointing at Jenkins, he was taunting the safety, even though McLeod wasn't even  involved in the play beyond trying to run him down. Smitty wouldn't ever act like he was hot poo just because he had twenty yard head start for the endzone, and he wouldn't nearly run out of bounds acting like an ass.

Janoris jenkins get embarrassed again? Golden tate caught that long td and started waving to jenkins at like the 30 yard line. It got a taunting penalty but I'm sure it was totally worth it for Tate due to how dumb it made jenkins look.

 

Tate was taunting the safety McLeod, not Jenkins. And frankly I was hoping someone would smash that stupid prick in his effing face, that was pure classlessness.

I park at Scaleybark and take the Lynx. I have no idea why people do otherwise.


#2454959 Didnt the Rams game prove that Rivera and Cam can win a close one?

Posted by fieryprophet on 28 October 2013 - 07:18 PM

That was one of their best "close wins" ever, but it's still not saying all that much. For instance, if you plugged Cam and Ron Rivera in for Stafford and Schwartz yesterday, do you think they manage to do what the Lions did in that final minute? I don't know want to knock either one because both have been doing so great lately, but I still haven't seen anything that tells me they would have won that.


Do we get Calvin Johnson too?


#2454949 Didnt the Rams game prove that Rivera and Cam can win a close one?

Posted by fieryprophet on 28 October 2013 - 07:15 PM

I'd consider the fact that he has two wins in that 2-14 close game record proof that at least knows how to win the occasional close game. It's a fluky as hell stat anyways and no one wins all of them.

It'd be great to get that trend reversed though.


#2454507 Shula, Zod, and SCP

Posted by fieryprophet on 28 October 2013 - 01:45 PM

Not sold on Shula at all. Even against a weak Tampa Bay team he was lining up obvious run formations when the Bucs were putting 8-9 guys in the box. Carolina's offense is so predictable based upon formation it's almost elementary.

 

That's not even remotely true. One of those 9 man fronts where we came out in a run formation was the goal-line pass play to Olsen, and it completely flummoxed Tampa's coverage as they were convinced we were going to run the ball, which is why it was a perfect time for the play fake. We had THREE players open on that play, with Hartsock and Nate Chandler sitting in the back of the end zone uncovered.

 

We flipped the script on that again in the second half when we spread the field with a three receiver set and actually ran Cam up the middle on a zone read. Again, we showed one thing formation-wise and did another.

 

And sometimes you're going to have to run the ball even if they show a heavy front; that Tolbert run for the first down on 4th and 1 was against a nine man box and it achieved exactly what it needed to do.

 

Playcalling looks elementary if you don't know what the hell you're looking at. Oftentimes an excellent play looks brain dead simple, because that's the beauty of them; they exploit a single matchup on the field and keep the chains moving. The best play we ran all night was that simple drag route to Ginn that used Olsen as a decoy down the seam to isolate Ted on Lavonte David. He had no chance to keep up with Ginn and a simple pitch from Cam turned into 35 yards. That's the opposite of poor playcalling.
