#2715826 For those who are interested, here is where Cam first hurt his left ankle

Posted by getsome on 25 March 2014 - 01:12 PM



Go to 2:29:02 (near the end of the game).  Cam runs toward right end, gets tackled, and his left ankle gets stepped on by 330 lb. Marcell Dareus.


That was one of only two times (the other being in the BCSCG when he took a helmet to the lower back) where I saw Cam actually react in pain in a game.  Considering the number of hits he takes, he's pretty darned durable.


I had forgotten all about that play until Rivera mentioned that this injury went all the way back to his playing days at Auburn.  I'd sure hate to get my ankle stepped on by Marcell Dareus.   :startle:


I watched the whole game, it that doesn't scratch your football itch, what will?

That could be it. I was --repeat, was---not high on him because I thought he folded in the fourth quarter.  He did.  My criticism of Cam was based on a few things--all based on his potential to be one of the greatest qbs ever to play the game.


He needed to be more of a leader and understand that role--while his teammates say that was overblown, Cam said that his father and brother talked to him about it and he watched tape and did not like what he saw.  I was thankful to hear that because it made me realize he needed to grow.


Cam needed to understand that winning was the best way to get respect, not self-promotion.  It is difficult to watch a QB pretend he is super man when the team is 2-8.


I am so pleased that these things are no longer issues.  Cam has matured in a football and leader way, and that is great.  I have seen enough to pay the man a franchise QB salary.  The longer the contract the better.  However, Cam needs to work on some things--his accuracy and touch on deep balls are 2 things that hurt us this season.


Do I apologize to anyone for any criticisms of Cam last year and even at the beginning of this season?  NO.  He fixed what I was complaining about, for the most part.  I think people who were singing his praises before he changed should feel stupid.  I guess I coached too long to celebrate potential with undying worship.


For Cam to be great, he does not need to lead the league statistically. Russell Wilson doesn't.  Cam has a stout defense and is about to be given a stout Offense to navigate. 


Everyone has a buy-in point, and I was not satisfied that Cam deserved the accolades until I saw him close out games and become a true leader.  He earned the C this season and we won games decided in the 4th quarter.  That is when I bought in.  If others bought in sooner, good for you.  I don't play fantasy football, so maybe that is the difference.


You guys that sit around and psycho analyze like you are doctor phil get to me. Either be a fan or go root for someone else. I cheered for the team even when Clausen and the crappy team played. Cam is a great athlete and people just need some patience. People who expect perfection after a few years in the league need to chill. He is just a young man, give him a break. I think the guy is great and am willing to be patient and let him develop.

Agree with everything you said. This is the one matchup I didn't want from all the possibilities. This game will be very close or we get blown out. It won't be a Panther blow out. Our offense has been anemic for almost a month.


You suck too, just like the guy you agree with. At least show some optimism. You act like we are some loser team, dude, we are #2 seed and clearly are contenders.

#2590278 Odds: SF@ Carolina

1. They're really good. Doesn't matter their seed or that they're on the road. They went to the super bowl last year having to win a game on the road. They're really really good. Top 3 team in the NFL maybe top 1 or 2.


2. Yea we beat them in SF... they didn't have crabtree, Kaepernick was really struggling then (he is on fire the last couple months), Davis basically didn't play, Aldon smith was going through his problems. That was months ago. It doesn't matter. Every game is it's own entity.


3. Vegas knows we have been teetering on a letdown for weeks. Almost lost to new orleans. Almost lost to Atlanta. Looked meager in winning. We have little offense. We don't move the ball well. Our play calling is bad.


4. Vegas knows Ron Rivera vs. Jim Harbaugh. One guy is a super bowl coach. One guy is unproven.


5. Vegas knows it's our playoff debuts in a lot of cases. The Niners are battle tested in the postseason, big time.


6. We are the classic team that ever year gets that bye and is about a year away really from being ready or a few players away from it being our time - truly you know that's probably true - so we could be that classic team that had a great regular season, gets the home playoff game, and goes one and out. It happens every year to someone. We're the most likely for it to happen to (based on these odds)


They almost lost to Atlanta at candlestick. They barely beat a broke down team in greenbay. I think its an even match, some areas a little better, some a little worse. Its definitely not some clear dominate position they have. Hope you wear you 9er jersey sunday.

#2581545 Playoff Tickets

Tried to get anything on ticketmaster and failed. All you guys bragging about your upper deck seats can have them. I just got a call from the guy I bought his season tickets from, he is letting me have the playoff tickets for face value, lower level, row 6. Now that's something to get happy about.

#2525534 Brilliant idea for the Huddle next season.

Posted by getsome on 03 December 2013 - 09:02 AM

I wouldn't hold it against Zod if he decided to keep some of the money....if he needs it.  As long as it's not a blatant overcharge.  It's his business.  We're pretty much provided a great service for free.  A lot of people have been on the huddle for a long time. It be cool to play a small role in helping to promote the huddle.  It's given me a lot of entertainment over the years.


What happened to capitalism, if he does it I hope he makes a fortune.
