Remember right off the bat his first year they would not let him use an armband to remember the plays? And that offense was a lot more verbal then. Cam has never lacked in the football IQ department. He just needed the experience.
I think Ginn and Smith have the speed to run those deep routes. I think the biggest problem and why we don't throw the long ball as much is the offensive line, teams defending it, and our offensive gameplan.
The O-line - It just can't hold up for long periods of time. Or I should say certain parts of the line can't hold up in pass blocking. Next year we get Gross back, Kalil in his prime, and Ameini is healthy. We upgrade RG or RT, maybe both.
Teams defend it - The NFL is always reacting to what an offense does and finds a way to shut things down. They will always find a way to shut something down so offenses need to keep chaning it up. In the first two years with Cam he was constantly throwing bombs. Teams gameplanned to stop it. Luckily Cam started throwing short stuff and other teams haven't responded to shut it down yet.
Gameplan - To be a complete player Cam had to shore up his ability to throw underneatch and read coverages. He's learned that now. Plus, Shula really wants to be balance so we're going to run more and be a little more traditional so even if there was more oppertunity to throw deep we would not do it as much as we did in Cam's first two years.
Cam has always had the tools but holy crap is he impressing the poo out of me right now. I always thought he'd be a decent passer but I never expected him to get to a level where he just sits in the pockets and picks teams apart. I know it's a lot but ever since we drafted him I've felt we got the Lebron James of the NFL.
If that's what passes for Science in America today, we're all doomed.
There are so many variable left out and the ones they do used applied incorrectly. So, Gronk really has Luke's entire 235 lbs of force against him. What speed was Luke moving at because they would incrase the amount of force? How much surface area of the force being applied to? I could go on and on. It's just brainless spectulation with some random numbers added.
Great, great article on Grandland talking about how bad the Falcons suck in great detail. I love it.
There is no hope left now, only obligation and punishment. Playing for this Falcons team is worse than dating Taylor Swift. At least relationships end. Matt Ryan is married to the team that got embarrassed by Mike Glennon and Greg Schiano on Sunday. He and his teammates are stuck here until Week 17. For God's sake, somebody convince everyone on the Falcons to fake an injury.
Luke's big mistake was never turning around. I think he saw Gronk's eyes get big and thought he was getting ready to jump up and make a catch. Luke starts to jump too but stops himself and loses his balance. You can see him try to hold up as he he puts his arms around Gronk trying not to touch him as he falls.
Kinda like Gronk had cooties and he was trying not to touch him.
You need to man up. Realistically we've been kicking ass and taking names here lately. If you wanna go ahead and crap the bed now and crown their ass, then crown them. Anybody got an extra spine for this guy.
