But Denver has a killer pass rush. If we don't have the OL capable of giving Joe time (especially with Yanda likely out) then we need to call plays that don't take x amount of seconds to develop.
We need quickfire plays that relieve the pressure on the OL to hold the opposing D back. This is what Cam never did. Now Joe has been holding onto the ball too long at times, so he is to blame too. But if he had a quick slant called he wouldn't have had to hold onto the ball in the first place. He wouldn't have to wait and see if Torrey and Q could shake their defender.
People knock Joe because they say he only throws when he sees the WR open. But Cam's system also contributed to such QB play. He had to wait because that is the way the route is designed.
If nothing else I need for Caldwell to call more slants and middle of the field plays. Joe won;t have to hold the ball. He can fire instantly. Thereby hopefully negating the pass rush.
We may hear more "anonymous" player snippets as the week goes on.
RT @GerrySandusky: A Ravens player told me last week,Cameron needed to give more decision making power to Flacco during games.Expect to see that from Caldwell.
Out of Pees, Cameron, Rosburg, who has been most UNDER FIRE?
Out of options on offense, who else would make sense? The only guys who seem to have any pull are Hostler (former OC), Caldwell (Many of us, or at least me, pimped that hiring as insurance for Cameron not doing well), maybe Montgomery?
They likely would not have worked well against Denver or the Giants either. See a pattern? Pass rush.
Watch how Bill and Brady negate Houston's pass rush tonight by quick passing plays. Will Houston still get to Brady at times? Sure - they are very good. But I bet the plays called by NE are tailored to minimizing Houston's strength. Whereas with Cam - he called the same shit over and over regardless if he was playing Houston or Oakland.
