I still can't get over that Cam slide near the sideline. All he has to do is flick the ball over the line of scrimmage for an incomplete pass and no yardage loss. Instead he falls down for a 2 yard loss. His lack of awareness is just so frustrating.
Do people remember what the NFL was like before all the rule changes in favor of passing offense? Back then any completion % over 60 was good back then, now it's the floor. If you started a full season you were almost guaranteed to throw 10 picks. Completely different eras for passing offenses can't be compared.
The women are probably buying those jerseys as birthday gift for their fat boyfriends/husbands. We all know if they were buying it for themselves Cam would cover most states. Most women would not buy jerseys just because someone throw for 300 yards.
Trust me on that one, guys. Trust me.
They're buying female fitting jerseys for their boyfriends?
If you already know the answer to this, why ask me? The majority of discussion here from fans is little more than speculation.
However, the play call I was referring to is something that has been happening regularly since Shula became our OC.
So why is the assumption then that Shula is to blame for Cam going deep in these situations? Also if Cam doesn't like the play, can't he audible out? I'm not a fan of Shula, but blaming him for Cam's decisions over the course of a play doesn't make sense to me.
With what we have at WR, our offense is more about getting first downs than huge plays obviously. The problem is though, our OC doesn't know which he wants us to be. For example, it's 2nd and 5, instead of going for the first down, we throw a bomb downfield. Incompletion.
Yes, and that is one of our bigger problems, which you could even argue negates any weaknesses we have personnel wise.
If your coaches are simply unable to adjust, then it really doesn't matter who is out there. The players also have to believe in the gameplan, and when our gameplan week in and week out is clearly not working yet we keep trying, eventually the players are going to lose confidence.
Question for you. Do you know Shula was in Cam's ear saying ignore all the intermediate routes and air it out?
Not trolling here and this is my first post as a huddle member but is anyone else unimpressed with Luke's play? Leads in tackles sure but gets beat every game and just looks soft. Gimme TD all day dudes hard as nails.
Davis has been struggling lately with his tackling. He's missing numerous tackles every game and not arm tackles but where he squares a guy up and is just shrugged off.
Watt, best defensive player.
Kuechly, best mlb.
Luck, best young QB.
Conte, best safety.
Just the common denominator followed by the word 'best' is the NFL's marketing strategy.
Package that up and the public will eat that poo up. The odd of those guys being the best while not playing for the best team is slim to none. Of course some players will have good stretches. It's just good marketing for the media to pound on those stretches. Especially if it fits the common denominator.
Remember that the media view certain communities doing well in sport as a novelty act. They love that stuff. They can't wait to throw all their hyperbole on certain players. The same reason analysts are almost contractually obligated to mention Larry Bird in every discussion about the greatest bball players of all time. All about marketing and selling an idea. People love ideas.
That's why I love about the CB position, like the NBA, you can't just fill in the blank followed by the word 'best'. You actually have to be skilled and athletic to cut it.
We get it, white people can't be better athletes than blacks in reality and the media propping people up is the only reason they get any recognition at all. But when has Conte ever been called the best safety?
