The problem is that most of my fellow Europeans know next to nothing about American Football and simply don`t care about it. And they will not change their mind just because there is ONE team in London. Compare it to soccer in the US, with the exemption that the MLS has a pretty good level now. All the American Football leagues that exist here in Europe are so bad, a good HS team would beat any Champion here.
Well they do keep selling out games at Wembley, this year 3 games which could with ease have sold 200.000 tickiets each.
Sure many have no clue whats going on, but go read some of our fat friend from bounty land posts.
A franchise in London is at least 10-15 years away but if the interest keeps growing in Europe there will be more than enough potential for a team there. London is a gigantic market which can only be matched by NY or LA and not only that but a new team in London will quickly be all of Britain or even all of Europe's team. The market is there.
The problem is logistic and as of right now I see no solution to that. London - NY is a 6-7 hour flight and the time different is 5 hours. That is not too crazy comparing with NY - Seattle but what if Seattle is going to London? So a team in London would mean a whole new structure in divisions and the way the scheduling are made right now. I am not ready for that even as a European oh... And I already have a team so screw London "insert name"
Every team in the league have flaws and weaknesses. Some more than others but every team have them.
A great coach work around those weaknesses and uses the strength.
Cam is our strength on O... Shula is using him wrong. Stop with the option crap, let Cam play hurry up. Cam is clearly best when he just plays and not over think every play.
Our O-line is our weakness on O... Shula is ignoring that and keeps calling 4 hours routes.
This is why Shula is crap. He has absolutely no ability to recognize strength and weaknesses on his team and thus cant adapt to anything. We just do the same poo every week hoping this is the week it all come together.
Cam is not responsible for the putrid Oline when it comes to them winning their one on one battles.
Cam is not responsible for the ineptitude and predictability of Shula's play calling. Every one knew we were going to try and force the ball to Benjamin in the redzone.
Cam is not responsible for a few of the drops made by the receivers though he did have a hand in a few of them.
What Cam is responsible for:
Cam is responsible for not hitting his check down receivers. This does help a neutralize a pass rush. If the D keys in on Cam always going down field it makes it twice as hard for an already suspect Oline to protect Cam. The Saints gave us the underneath routes and the flats and Cam ignored it. If Cam hits his check downs on a regular basis it forces the D to be more honest and also spreads them out. The more the D has to account for the better off we'll be.
Cam does need to develop more touch on his passes.
Cam is responsible for forcing the ball into double and sometimes triple coverage.
Cam does have the ability to change the play based upon the look of the defense. New Orleans utilized their timeouts when Brees didn't like how the defense was lined up. We hardly ever use timeouts in that fashion.
Cam does have a say pre-snap to help guide protections.
Cam does have the ability to get the ball out quickly.
Now the good question now is... What and how much does the first impact the last ones.
Cam often begin pressing and going all in when everyone around him fug up. So the bad play calling and O-line get the wors out of Cam. That is not so odd. Now Cams ability to read some Ds and his touch is not something that is impacted. The touch thing is just Cam and will never go away. He is a true gunslinger and its all or nothing.
There is maybe two or three QBs in the league who pretty much can win by them self. The rest need a good supporting cast. Cam has nothing.
