Like I said earlier watch to see how they handle JJ Watt tonight - and the Hou rush in general. They are not going to sit Brady back there waiting for Lloyd to run 20 yards deep. They are going to hit quick and fast to Welker across the middle, and dump it off to Vereen or someone with space in front of him. Plays that take about 1 second to develop. Brady isn;t going to be waiting 4-5 seconds for his receivers to run sideline routes. Because hoody Bill knows that is a recipe for disaster against HOU.
Cam simply would not tailor his gameplan unless absolutely forced to, and even then there was no guarantee.
I am not claiming Joe will be able to handle it, he may not, but this decision is a day late, dollar short, imo. We are still screwed under the cap next season with very little info on how the franchise QB does under another's system.
I hope if Caldwell does a good job, he cans most of the offensive coaches (Outside of Montgomery) and brings in his own guys.
I posted last night that Harbs could have had another MUTINY coming. It may have started last night. Players were PISSED OFF. More so than I have seen before.
I think that this was higher up than Harbs.
Just my thought on it.
You bring up a good point about wrs being open. They are rarely open. When Joe makes a great pass it is usually fitting it over the defense in what is a beautiful play. I wonder how long it will take for Caldwell to implement some crossing routes and higher percentage passes. Also Manning worked out of the shotgun quite a bit. I wonder if we will see Joe in the shotgun more often under Caldwell.
I agree with what is said in the second half of this ESPN video from today about Cam firing.
I know some people do not like Jaworski but I do think he has good insights. He mentions Cam's offense was not creative enough (too predictable) to take advantage of what we have here. I agree.
