    Re: Obligatory Fire Cam Thread



    I can't get over that call.

    Look, it's really easy to use hindsight to criticize a play call. I'm always hesitant to do that. The screen play on 3rd and 13 looks really dumb when it doesn't work, but if it does, it's a great call. I'm not gonna criticize a play call like that, because what do I know sitting at home watching TV...? Not much. There is a chess match going on and I don't understand the intricacies of it.

    But this situation was ridiculous. We had the clear strategic advantage, and WE GAVE OUR STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE AWAY THE MOMENT WE LINED UP IN SHOTGUN. Honestly, I don't even care if it's a pass at the end of the day. I don't. As long as you line up in a formation that MAKES THE DEFENSE PLAY THE RUN. Because the defense knew we'd run... everyone knew we'd run.

    Fine, you really wanna pass?!?! Don't line up in shotgun! Jesus, I can't stop. That was high school JV level bad.

Regardless if you get the first down the clock keeps running. 9.9 out 10 OC's call a run there. Cam never seems to amaze me. I am so dis-trout about that play call. It's bad when your happy your QB takes a sack. So effing pathetic Cam.
    Clearly that is the kinda call a coach who rides the short bus makes. You have one of the best RB in the NFL, you have one the best blocking FB in the NFL...its not rocket science, being a contrarian does not make you smart Cam it gets you your seat on the back of the bus....Cam you may resume licking the window...thank you for participating.

    He even had Torrey Smith pretty open down the sideline, that had to be so tempting to throw, but if it's incomplete, the Steelers would have had a much better chance to tie it up.

    Really?

    Just last week you were making fun of the doom and gloomers.

    It's a road win against a divisional foe, one that happens to have the best defense in the league.

    Cam gets a pass. Especially considering the lack of execution.

    Re: Obligatory Fire Cam Thread

    I find it extremely annoying how we NEVER utilize the middle of the field. If you clamp down the outside part of the field and stuff Rice, our offense is inept.

    I'll definitely take the win though! D and Jacoby, stepping up!

    Flacco probably saved Cam's job by taking that sack.

    Re: Obligatory Fire Cam Thread

    Cam's not getting fired during the season, so everyone might as well just try and enjoy the ride.

    After the season, hopefully he goes, but for now, we're stuck with him, he's not going anywhere.

    He was told to take a sack if the pass wasn't there.

    Re: Obligatory Fire Cam Thread

    Who here on on this board did not yell out one these phrases after they came lined up in the shotgun after that timeout.

    Really?
    WTF?
    Seriously?
    Get the Fuck out?
    Did I take LSD?
    What was in those brownies?

    If your gonna be dumb and throw the ball there at least use play action for gods sake....there really is ZERO defense for that call

    Re: Obligatory Fire Cam Thread

    INEXCUSABLE is the word..... I even seen Leach on the side line when they called timeout campaigning to come in for a run. I thought I would see Leach after the timeout, but no, here comes Joe in the SG. Absolutely PATHETIC, INEXCUSABLE and just done right STUPID effing DUMB.

    EDIT: Joe should ask for Cam to be released in his new contract.

    I am sure he was, but that kind of mandate just makes the QB not throw it at all. Was a stupid call.

    If anything, it should have been a designed QB run. And Flacco could have done better to escape the slow-developing pressure instead of turtling and eating it, but again, when the coach (and common sense) tells you not throw an incompletion it almost steers you into taking a sack.

    I swear, I'm not a doom and gloomer. I'm really not. That play call was inexcusable. We gave away a strategic advantage. It was like we had them one move away from checkmate, and instead of taking that move, we decided "nah, let's make it interesting for no reason at all."

    Seriously, I've never seen an inexcusable play call in my life. That was the first one. There is no justification that is worthy.

    Don't think we can run for 2 yards when they know we're running? Me neither, not based on how our run game had produced all night. FINE. Line up in a run formation and PASS THE BALL. I can live with that. I can't live with letting the defense off the hook with the game on the line. It's anti-competitive.

    I said it in the game thread, let's all start writing letters Andy Dufresne-style: one a day until Cam is gone.

    Eventually they'll fire him, and ask us to please stop sending letters.
