Re: Swap out Joe from the Cam Offense and insert other NFL QB... Who would be better?
Risk avoidance. Throw the ball over the middle & unless it's caught (or knocked down by the receiver acting as a DB) it's liable to be picked or tipped & then picked. Throw it to the sidelines & if it's done right there's minimal risk of an INT off a tip (though we saw one vs Joe a couple of games ago--great play by the DB IIRC). Throw it deep & even if it's picked the result is generally no worse than a punt.
