    I just don't understand why Boldin is the only guy who really gets looks over the middle of the field.

    Why is it that JAcoby and Torrey (for the most part) only are running 9's? Last I checked, they are two of the fastest guys on the squad...seems to me that Jacoby in the middle of the field with the ball in his hands could be pretty lethal for opposing D's...

    Re: Swap out Joe from the Cam Offense and insert other NFL QB... Who would be better?

    Brees couldn't do it in Cam system (with CAM) and Rivers couldn't do it either. How much more "proof" do you need (a 10 year track record) that Cam Cameron produces a mediocre offense at best. Put Joe on the 49ers and they're in the Superbowl.

    Re: Swap out Joe from the Cam Offense and insert other NFL QB... Who would be better?

    Regarding the whole timing/throwing the ball as the WR comes out of his break/etc. thing, I want to remind you guys of something that was reported not long ago that I had never really heard or noticed before.

    The Ravens, unlike teams that use a West Coast passing attack, don't want their receivers making sharp, 90-degree breaks when they come out of their routes. Baltimore's Air Coryell offense asks its receivers to instead bend their routes while running full speed, a change that might seem subtle, but one that -- to a wide receiver -- is like trying to learn to write left-handed after spending your entire life as a righty.
    from Kevin Van Valkenberg's article for ESPN, http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/page/...r-torrey-smith

    This made my jaw drop when I read it. I'm just a guy who played a little college ball and coached a little rec/intramural football, but even I know that probably the #1 mechanical flaw a wideout can have in his game is rounding off his routes. From the very very earliest levels kids who play wide receiver are taught to be SHARP out of their breaks. And yet, in Cam's system they're taught the exact opposite?

    Ever since I read that (which BTW I had NEVER heard attributed to Cam's system before) I started watching the receivers closely. And it's true. Almost every route except the out route is rounded off out of the break, instead of broken off sharply. On a timing route, in a normal NFL offense the ball is supposed to leave the QB's hand at the instant the receiver comes out of his break. But how do you do that when the receiver doesn't actually break at all but instead kind of lazily, gradually bends the route in the desired direction?

    Why are the receivers struggling so much to get separation? Because it's so easy for a DB to read them. They don't run very many routes at all, they don't run any double moves, and when they DO run a route that should break sharply to get them some separation, they bend it. Torrey Smith runs a lot of deep and skinny post routes--go watch all the deep incompletions he ran last night. On almost all of them, he very gradually bends toward the post, making no effort to use a head fake, jut step, or any other route running techniques. It's just so easy for a DB to follow that route all the way down the field and without a sharp break there's no definite point for the ball to come out.

    This needs to be pointed out, because again it's a serious coaching error that is having a cascading effect on the entire passing game. Go back and re-watch with this in mind and it will really change the way you see things.

    Cinci's defense was hurt at the beginning of the season and just werent clicking yet. NE has a shitting D and Dallas was one of our good offensive games.

    Re: Swap out Joe from the Cam Offense and insert other NFL QB... Who would be better?

    is it possible they resigned cam knowing Flacco would have mediocre stats while still being relatively competitive as we were last year just to save some money on his contract before dumping cam following it?

    Probably not realistic, but can i just believe thats the only reason Cam is still around?

    dude it's beyond me i haven't seen a post route in the middle of the field since billick. What happen to Ed Dickson with his speed in the middle of the field, granted its 50/50 ed catches it but he is a mismatch nightmare for safties and LBs, its the same routes, the same plays the same shit every game.

    I have a real hard time thinking that could even be remotely close to true.

    That is almost as bad as some folks on here insinuating that Harbaugh would rather lose games than play certain guys.

    I read this same article and wondered the same thing. How the hell are WRs suposed to get open if they're not doing everything that a WR is supposed to do to get open?!

    And why the hell haven't any of the "experts" on ESPN and NFLN ever pointed this out?

    As for which QBs would be as good as Joe or better with Cam, the answer is actually this:

    Cutler would be as good or worse: he's more mobile then Joe but also more volatile.
    Eli would be as good: Which is to say he'd be just as inconsistent.
    Ben would be better: but less reliable due to not being able to stay healthy.
    Brees would be best: has the mobility and pocket presence still, but his height would mean more interceptions and that goes against Cam's/Harb's conservative, play-it-safe philosophy

    And those are the only 4, because those are the only 4 who have the arm strength and toughness, who've also demonstrated they can play well enough to win games behind mediocre or worse O-Lines if their D is good enough.

    Forget A-Rod: he's used to getting the ball out quick in that WCO the Packers run where WRs are supposed to get open fast by running a variety of shorter routes, then when the D is set up for it, going vertical--basically the polar opposite of how Cam does it.
    Considering his early problems with concussions, expecting A-Rod to hold on to the ball, getting drilled over and over...he won't last the season; back when he played like that, he was not an elite QB anyway.

    So yeah, Cam's offense is that rigid, that very few QBs are a good fit.

    haha, i know, im just baffled at how this man is still currently employed here. I give Atlanta a lot of props, they were good enough but didnt settle for it and made a move despite being a playoff team. Im only hopeful at this point we do the same.
