I couldn't watch the game tonight, and that's probably a good thing. It's clear Cam had a bad game, and it's crystal clear our offense is broken and the entire team seems to lack in confidence at this point.
But to all of you saying Cam has always been what he was tonight, that's total bs.
Everyone of us that watches the games have seen Cam make every throw. We've seen him be deadly accurate when given time in the pocket. We've seen him put touch on throws, we've seen him throw receivers open, we've seen him throw back shoulder fades and perfect deep balls.
He also was throwing the ball better early this year than he had at any point previously and even his detractors were talking about how he was scanning the field and carving up defenses.
So the question we should be asking is, what happened? Why the dramatic and sudden regression? Answer that and we're getting somewhere.
Regardless, the market for a solid contributor at LT was low and virtually every rookie selected at the position has struggled immensely. We were fugged no matter what this season.
Deal with it.
Here's the problem...almost all rookie LT's struggle. That's why they are often started out on the right side to gain some experience. We didn't see anyone we thought could come in and start this year, so we selected no one. So what happens this offseason? We have the exact same dilemma, and now we likely have to wait yet another year while the young player is developing.
Next year when the guys selected this year start to get it, we will still be at square one. That's why it wouldn't surprise me at all if Bell is still our starter next year. I am afraid that is the reality we face.
No T on the FA market was worth the $$$ they got paid.
Listen, I don't like how this is going down, but we all knew this going into the season. DG was not going to hamstring the 15 and 16 season for an overrated/overpaid T. And I don't blame him.
This is really tough for me to say, as I believe that building from the inside out is the correct way to do this.
I'm not necessarily talking about FA's. We knew going into the year we were on thin ice at tackle. At minimum, especially when G. Williams went down, we should have at least kept a couple of prospects on the PS to give them some time practicing with the team.
It honestly looks like their plan was just to throw bodies out there for this season and hope for the best.
