He is our franchise QB and there are no conspiracy theories except the fact that we did a piss poor job of helping our QB out for this season. We hurt him didn't help him, obviously.
Hey, I think I made some fair points. I argued your premises, and you "flame" me, for whatever that's worth.
I, personally, don't buy into your argument that Gettleman set us up for failure to get Cam for cheaper. It doesn't make sense.
You and I both know we were cash-strapped. Gettleman didn't make Hardy beat his girlfriend, nor should Gettleman have signed an overvalued Mike Mitchell. He thought our priorities were at wide receiver, and I respect that. We could've drafted an o-lineman, but Gettleman didn't see the value there. We knew this was going to be a re-building year.
I willingly admit that my view of Cam is heavily biased because of his last few performances. However, taking the past into account, he just hasn't shown the expected progress. The counter here is, "he has a sh*tty o-line, average WRs, and a terrible coaching staff". I agree.
Cam was great last year, I'll admit that. For all intent and purposes, he should be hailed our "franchise" QB. The only thing stopping me is his inconsistency, and that is a quality a "franchise" QB can't have. No matter how I argue it, I will always be countered with "Gettleman is an idiot, o-line/wrs suck, coaches suck." Those are all fair arguments, and we'll have to take those into account when we do eventually try to re-sign him.
Cam's mechanics have been off, and if that's due to injury, I'm wrong.
