#2362957 Who Loses Us The Game

Posted by LelouchBritannia on 08 September 2013 - 03:01 PM

Um...whoever decided to let russel wilson throw for 320 yards with screen/short passes and prayers....




#2334455 I know I know PRESEASON.... But should we be concerned about Cam's accuracy?

I think so.

 

This is year 3 of the Cam Newton era. He is STILL making the EXACT same mistakes he made game 1 of his rookie year(bad footwork leading to overthrowing of receivers). Notice that nearly every single pass is to the sideline, identical to the majority of plays that we called the last two years. We wonder why there are no quick drop offs or 3 step drops and it comes down to Cam's short to intermediate accuracy(look at the failure of most of our screen plays, it comes from inaccuracy throwing the ball to the runningback causing the back to stop to make sure they catch it, while the blockers move forward leaving an opening to easily tackle the rb for a 0-1 yard gain)




#2326236 Gettle can't really be this oblivious, could he?

Pressure from the pocket isn't Cam's problem. It is Cam. He has no problem buying time, the problem is he goes full Jamarcus Russell sometimes and cannot hit the broad side of a barn. I love Cam, but damn man. I would say the running backs need a decent oline way more than Cam does.




#2326226 Should we be worried?

I definitely think it is time to worry, but it is not the end of the world. Yes Cam looked extraordinarily inaccurate, and yes the offensive line got absolutetly wrecked by one of the worst defenses in the league. But it is the preseason and they can get better, people oftentimes bring up the "well we did not have a gameplan" when it comes to the preseason, yet they do not realize that it makes this significantly worse. That means that our guys got straight up beat by theirs, at nearly every position on both sides of the ball.

 

But we will get better. The real question however, is how much better and how much in the end will it matter? If it takes us until week 8 to get halfway decent and we are sitting at 1-6 then at that point it does not matter. Every great team is at least halfway decent in the preseason.

 

Who remembers 2008? Our running game was STUPID in the preseason, and guess what? It was stupid in the regular season. You remember 2011? 2012?.....
