    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    Again, they cannot do any of these things if the ball arrives late. Or requires a stretching catch, or doesn't arrive when the receiver is in space (and as shown above, the receivers are getting open). Look at the play where Cam kept motioning Harry deeper on Sunday. Harry was in space. Get...

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    Because Cam almost NEVER gets them the ball in a place where they can catch it in stride and pick up YAC. It's one of the most frustrating things about him.

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    The receivers are open. Cam isn't seeing them or isn't getting them the ball quickly enough. View: https://twitter.com/chatham58/status/1334154943801024514?s=20

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    Cam did miss the KC game of course which will hurt his numbers in those categories. No one is arguing he's having a good season.

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    He's also rushed for 9 TDs and 400 yards so that needs to be taken into account as he's rushing in spots where Brady would have thrown. I am not arguing he's been good. He has not. But his skills at running the ball should be accounted for as well.

    The Game Ball Thread: Wk.12 vs Arizona

    Everyone is gonna say it's the loss of Brady but no Hightower has been really hard to overcome. There's a reason they gave up a billion yards in SB 52, it's because Hightower was hurt.

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    Ernie Adams said this exact thing in the SB 49 movie regarding Malcolm Butler's INT. 'THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GAME DAY PLAYER.' Malcolm made the INT because he practiced that play and put it to execution during the game. Without one there is not the other. Stidham must be terrible in...

    The Game Ball Thread: Wk.12 vs Arizona

    3 in a row on the road, the first two being on the West Coast, the third being in Miami where the Pats never play well. It's an extreme long shot to make the playoffs at this point, although they own tie breakers over Miami, Raiders and Ravens. Yesterday, DL gets a game ball. Folk gets a game...

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    It's almost like Bedard has no goddamn clue about what it takes to run a winning football team. I don't think Cam was good yesterday either, but to assume that BB doesn't know what he's doing by keeping Cam as the starter takes a level of hubris that only Bedard seems to possess. The logical...

    Wasn't it the aftermath of the Iginla contract? No cap room left.

    What a career and one of my favorite Bruins. Stanley Cup champion and forever a Bruin.

    A Bridge Not Burnt: Bruins sign Jake DeBrusk(2 years, $3.675 AAV)

    I am greatly relieved to see they got this done. Very very pleased.

    We lost the good coordinator to Miami and kept the crappy one.

    2020 Pats: Cam Can't Cook

    It just occurred to me: Cam reminds me of late-career Bledsoe. Does enough things right to put up some stats but fails at so many basic things that the team loses again and again.

    Gunner likely won’t be on the team tomorrow. He’s stupid and useless.

    Why? They’re 4-6. They aren’t going anywhere and Cam isn’t improving at all. They have nothing to lose.
