Contextualizing or putting things in perspective =/= Cam shares no blame.

Hard for some of the more dense people to understand that saying Cam not being the problem does not mean Cam is perfect or without fault.

But I do think that some people have an unrealistic expectation as to what Cam should be expected to do at this stage of his career.

Alex Smith is as good as Peyton Manning this year and better than Brees, Brady, and Rodgers.

He is 6-0. Facts are facts.


#2428321 I believe we can become the Chiefs.

It is because Alex Smith is a special and elite QB.

I mean, they were 2-12 the year before he got there. He has put the team on his shoulders and carried them to a 6-0 record.

So far he has been better than Brady, Brees, and Rodgers as his record is evidence of.

He may be the best QB in the entire NFL. Peyton didn't even boost the Broncos as much as Smith has the Chiefs to a 6-0 record.

Alex Smith.

Although he only has 3 sacks dude has been disruptive as hell.

If Greg ever gets some confidence he would be pretty good.

Of course Cam should have played better. That is my point. The statistics are not my doing, but they explain a lot to an objective, knowledgeable football fan. The same OL and WRs in the first, second, and third quarters suddenly cause the QB rating in the fourth quarter to drop from over 90 to 50? And when you need that franchise QB to put you on his shoulders and carry you--like Brady did yesterday with his group or WRs---his rating is below 20. That is eye-opening, and I have nothing to do with the statistics. They are what they are--you dang right he should have played better.

We have 2 wins against teams with a combined 1-11 record. The other games were close, and our QB disappeared in the 4th quarter--these stats show that.


Just to shed some light on this, in 3 of the 5 games we had at least a 6 point after our last offensive possession.

1 of the other games (Seattle) we only had one possession in the 4th quarter and drove right down the field but fumbled.

So really the Arizona game was the only game where he has had a bad 4th quarter, and of course that one game is dragging his rating a bunch.

Loss


#2427647 Points Per Game...

Posted by teeray on 14 October 2013 - 09:46 AM

This is why we play 16 games and not 5. We have a team that can win and make a playoff run, but we have to stop shooting ourselves in the foot.

Also to this point we have only played two home games.

We have to take care of business at home and find two road wins out of our last 5.

Protect our home field we have a chance. Unfortunately we have put ourselves with a small margin for error with a difficult schedule ahead.

Nope, the statistics say teams should almost always go for fourth and short in opponents territory. Here's economist Paul Romer: http://elsa.berkeley...B_CORRECTED.pdf
There are also good pieces out there by Brian Burke, Football Outsiders and others explaining this.


I have seen this study before and talked to some coaches about it. And almost all of them say there is a reason they are statisticians and economists and not coaches

5. Steve Smith had the most Steve Smith sequence possible. He got in a fight, threw a nasty decleater block, and then danced on the sideline. All in five minutes

The best thing ESPN has done in years is giving each team their own reporter for exclusive coverage.


#2427246 Is it safe to say?

Posted by teeray on 13 October 2013 - 11:11 PM

He still commands attention. His value isn't just measured in individual stats


#2426897 Why are people getting excited over Cam's play today?

Posted by teeray on 13 October 2013 - 08:43 PM

Filter that stat into 1-score games and you'll see something completely different.

4th quarter total QBR which takes into account time and score.

Cam 86. Luck 76

Any other adjustments we need to make to.fit the false narrative?


#2426773 Why are people getting excited over Cam's play today?

Posted by teeray on 13 October 2013 - 07:53 PM

So... Cam played too well and didn't allow the game to stay close enough to satisfy some people?

BTW you guys realize Cam has had numerous 4th Q comebacks that have been lost right?

Not saying Cam hasn't had some opportunities that he to has squandered but it rubs both ways

Didn't he do that basically the second half of last season?


Don't worry. The goal posts will continue to move
