#2364626 Did anyone else notice about Cam...

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 September 2013 - 06:33 PM

You could hear Cam presnap today on the broadcast and it sounded like he was doing more than in the past in terms of calling out protections and making adjustments and even possibly calling some audibles.

I have never heard him that vocal before and I think they have put more responsibilities on him presnap which to me is encouraging in terms of his progress.

 

I did, particularly the call "Kansas." He also made some motions to his receivers.

 

Also, we didn't have one burned timeout due to a late play call.
 




#2364509 More positives than negatives today. A completely objective analysis.

Let's break it down: in 2011 we lost our first game to a non-playoff Cardinals. In 2012 we lost our opener to a non-playoff Bucs. In 2013 we lost our opener to the playoff Seahawks. If we had the Bills first and lost I'd be a hell of a lot more angry right now, but this was a tough loss to a really good team that we stalemated for the vast majority of the day.

It would help if his receivers weren't dropping passes that travel more than 10 yards.




#2364053 I think we'll be ok

I guess most of you didn't play any type of organized football growing up. You act like all 60 plays in a game are completely scripted and designed to be perfectly balanced. Of course there are specific plays we wish we could have back but all in all, we mostly out-played (or at least played equal to) a team that 50% of experts picked to represent the NFC in the super bowl.

What no one seems to realize is that teams customize their gameplan to match the situation. Yes we played a very conservative game, but had DWill not fumbled and we won 15-12, we would all be saying how much we love Shula for not getting "cute" and calling risky plays that could have cost us. We had 2 drives completely stopped due to Olsen drops and of course the fumble. Then add the 2 drives that ended at 4th and inches, and thats 5 extra drives we basically "left on the field."

 

One of those 4th and inches was due to an abysmal spot by the refs (who were extra stupid today.)

DWILL played hard, ran good.  They put a helmet on his elbow and then stripped him.......  

 

I like what I seen out of our running game with him though......

 

He had a great game outside of the fumbles (he was lucky on the first.) Perhaps the cost of him getting much less work the last two years, let's hope. But that last fumble, he should have put two hands on the ball and didn't.

His words: "I cost my team and the fans a hard fought win."

 

And he's right, so stop jumping off the bridge, people.

Cam was ~70% completion % today. He made a ton of excellent short throws, normally his weak point. There are some serious bright spots there.

Cam was a little bit conservative today, but he was targeting the open man, not the down and distance, and now he just has to find the balance for himself between the two.




#2363755 Cam "We had a game plan and we stuck to it"

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 September 2013 - 04:01 PM

Could you dumbasses not say something like "wow, he threw the coaches under the bus" if you didn't watch the goddamn video? It's like a bunch of mini-Skip Baylesses in here.




#2363736 4th and inches

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 September 2013 - 04:00 PM

I think the more disgusting decision was to have the ball around your own 30, around 35 seconds left in the half, all three timeouts left, Seahags get the second half kick off, and you do nothing. Couldn't we have at least tried to pick up 30-40 yards to attempt a FG. Did he really think the Hags were only going to score 3 points? Yeah I know it's taking a risk. But you have to take risks. That conservative poo ain't going to win you nothing.

 

They had 2 timeouts as well, if we turn the ball over they could do the same exact thing AND receive the 2nd half kick off.

Addressed the elephant in the room. "I know it seems like a habit, here we go again. But we're not going to make the same mistakes or dwell on the past, we're turning on focus on the next game."




#2363625 4th and inches

This is why rivera needs to take a hike and gettleman hire a coach with some damn balls.

 

. . .in your own side of the field.

 

I swear to God, i think some of you have never seen a football game before.




#2363556 I'm worried about Rivera

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 September 2013 - 03:43 PM

Last year KC....

 

It's Rivera

 

Did you just compare Brady Quinn going nuts on us to Wilson throwing a single TD on us?




#2363389 I'm worried about Rivera

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 September 2013 - 03:30 PM

You're reading too much into it. For God's sake, everyone is acting like we got destroyed by an abysmal team, instead of losing close to the chic Super Bowl pick. We're mad because we saw this team come out and play extremely hard and wanted to see that effort rewarded. I am extremely angry but I am not stupid, this team just has the shittiest fortune I've ever seen.




#2363296 Welcome to Shula ball....

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 September 2013 - 03:25 PM

I see, the Panthers are the only team in the league with a hand full of dropped balls and a fumble. Everyone else executes to perfection. That's why we scored 7 points.

Makes sense. I'm convinced.

 

We averaged 5 YPC, we were 5/11 on 3rd down, we had no INTs against the league's best secondary, we were at the goal line for the win in a defensive slugfest. If Williams had not fumbled we would very likely be talking about how efficient the offense was against a great defense.
