I finally caved and bought NFL Game Pass yesterday. First thing I wanted to do was take a look at the coaches film feature to see what Cam sees before taking a sack. I'm sure like most of you, I'm literally exhausted from seeing the same news about Hardy, Peterson and Rice.
Sack Number 1 (Picture 1)
Sack Number 1 (Picture 2)
As you can see, he has a WR over the middle but by this time 3 Lions players are in his face. Could he attempt this throw? Yes, he could. Is it extremely dangerous? Yes, it is. I believe Cam made the right decision by not forcing it and risking an INT.
Sack Number 2
Now we have a Lions player who has already broken through the middle. Looking downfield you see not a single WR is open or is even looking back at Cam. Again, Cam is sacked and it's hard to say this is fault.
Sack Number 3
Sack number 3 was a missed blocking assignment. The LB had a free run at Cam, Cam stood no chance here.
Sack number 4
Again 3 Lions (both ends and tackle) have broken through, everyone but Cotchery is covered. However if you look at the safety you can tell he has started to make his break towards Cam and it'd be a very tough throw. This play came on 1st down, and there's no sense in risking a red zone INT. Cam took the sack and found Avant on the very next play for a TD.
So as you can see it's pretty easy to sit there and rage on Sunday right after Cam takes a sack. But if you take a look at what Cam's looking at, you can see a lot of it isn't his fault.
Maybe I'm over doing it with these next two but I remember how much people blew up during the playoff game when Cam took back to back sacks in the third Quarter. So I'll just post the pics and you can be the judge
