I don't know what it is about the media, but for some reason, they actually think this read option offense suits Cam. They celebrate Chud like he is a genius, when the read option offense is the major reason why Cam regressed this year. Unbelievable. Why don't these talking heads just sit down, watch Cam's rookie year, compare it to this one, and tell it like it is.
John Gruden was talking all night long about how our offense was designed to help Cam out. Like he couldn't adjust to the NFL unless they ran some plays he ran in college. That is just lazy. Let's forget his rookie season, where he ran a pro set offense, and threw for over 4,000 yards. The only rookie to do so. Man, I'm about sick of all these lies.
With good OL play.....and a healthy option RB. It is deadly. 2011 and Washington prove it.
This year we have bad OL play, a gimpy Stewart and a RB who stinks at it.
It's worth a listen. More than just Cam in there. Basically says Cam wasn't as successful last year as fans thought. He was a product of coaches being creative in his use catching the league by surprise. He was 6-10 but thought he was successful. He has never failed before at any level. Once the league adjusted to the O scheme Cam didn't.
How did the league adjust when Chud changed our offensive scheme this year?
My coworkers neighbor is Jordan Gross's doctor..Supposedly Gross told the Dr. that Cam doesn't speak to anyone but a select few..that he's the ultimate diva
Don't know how accurate that is..but if it's true it makes me sad..it's one thing to be a diva to the media..but to your own team? inexcusable IMHO
It's called the telephone game.....story always gets a little better the futher it goes.
Gross could say, yeah Cam tends to gravitate more to younger players.....next thing you know it is someone claiming Gross said Cam hates him.
I use that example bc I know a player, I think JA mentioned a young kid like Cam felt more comfortable hanging with other young guys like LaFell. They have more in common vs Cam and a 8 yr vet with a family.
If he's missing media deadlines and holding up the team bus routinely, then it just furthers my perception that this staff has done a terrible job of managing and developing him. You don't put up with that poo. You nip it in the bud early.
He isn't missing media deadlines...
Newspapers tell reporters they want X by a certain time. Reporters are bitching about the time crunch they are under after a MNF game with their bosses.
Someone should tell them newspapers are a dying format.
Not saying its a terrible thing, just saying he has that rep in the locker room.
well, it is pretty obvious he isn't a Jake Delhomme. Cam is at least still very very young. I am sure he will continue progress across the board. A young kid w/ lots of personality can be interpreted in many ways under a microscope.
they feel players owe them answers. back when sportswriters were good, the good ones earned respect and the good stuff. Jason Whitlock actually wrote about it last year......
after the game Cam had national media, oppoents, lockeroom talk, shower etc. before his presser.......54 minutes after the whistle isn't absurd. Just shows how spoiled reporters are.....then flip it on Cam saying he held up the team. His obligation to them holds up the bus.
