Like it or not, Cam hasn't been the same since his shoulder injury. Ever since then, there's been an excuse/excuses for him:
2016 - Shoulder injury
2017 - Recovering from shoulder surgery
2018 - TJ Watt Reaggravating shoulder injury
2019 - That Bitch Liz Frank (cousin of Tommy Jone)
2020 - His teammates sucked
2021 - Came in too late
Legitimate excuses? Maybe. Still doesn't change the fact that he hasn't had a full season of great QB since 2015.
That's 6 years of below average QB play since his MVP season... Injuries derailed his career. It sucks, I love Cam but it's been too long since he was good, and let's be real, it's not like Rhule and Co will actually bring out the best of him. Let him go elsewhere and prove he's still good, if nothing else than for his own sake.
"..A lot of things have to align for a quarterback to play well.." - Rhule
Cam's passing last year wasn't good because he had trash to throw to. This season he had decent weapons but no time to throw. Cam is more than a RZ threat, wow.
Damiere Byrd was his #1 WR don't forget to include that and I'll let you go ahead and look up the unknowns he had at TE. Damiere Byrd, N' Keal Harry, and the unknown TE group. Sounds like a recipe for success in the passing game yea?
Lets not forget NE had the most covid opt outs of any team that year. Cam had 5 weeks to learn the system and his teammates in New England of all places, and also got Covid week 4. Still put up better numbers and got more wins than any other quarter back we've tried to replace him with
