Cam supporters wont like your post. They cant stand any questioning thread about Cam, so this wont end well.
For me, I agree with you that hes inconsistent but we still need to invest in him because we have burned our 1st overall pick on him and already have invested much in him, hes the best qb we could have for a long time.
But if he keeps playing like the past years, we need to consider drafting another elite qb prospect to replace him, we could lose him anyway if we cant pay him.
I am a Cam supporter, I just aint blind to the fact that he still has a good ways to go to be the quarterback we/he wants to be. Still way to inconsistent regardless of what ever factors are causing it, which are many.
And we are stuck with him for the good and bad. So for all our sake, lets pray he takes that next step up.
We led the NFL in time of possession, were efficient in the red zone, and had (4) 4th Q game-winning drives. Oh, and we had the #14 scoring defense in AFL/NFL history.
It worked masterfully.
If Chud was the OC in 2013 we would've had a "top 5 offense" (yardage ranking) and Cam would've been an MVP candidate. But the defense would've finished about 15th or so and we would've went about 8-8 because Chud's Madden offense would've aired out quick TD drives or a 3 & out 99% of the time & ran our defense into the ground.
Keep the yards, I'll take the wins.
Time of possession doesnt mean poo by itself. You can hold the ball the entire quarter but get down to the opponents redzone and have to kick a fg.
The only thing that matters is real efficiency. Points per possession.
So long as you score a TD I do not care if it takes 30 seconds or 10 minutes.
Our wins the last couple of years have came as a result of our D, not the O.
I have seriously lost count of how many 3rd and short plays where we call up a play 30 yards downfield. Should tell you all you need to know about Shula.
All I am saying is next season I will be on here to say I told you so when the offense is still being stiff armed and going 3 and out because no one has the speed to beat the coverage and make them respect it.
