Though it was just the first exhibition game, Trubisky looked good last night. It seems like Harris will get some good coaching at North Carolina without a doubt.

re: interesting comments on brandon harris
He's a Tiger man

He came here over other programs including Auburn, even Herman recruited him at OSU, all the while the qb coaching under Miles was atrocious

He even graduated and is an LSU alumn who wants the best for his home state, still

I want the best for him

Yet he was inaccurate on short easy throws. So many of you just believed so much that he was great that you can't take an objective look at the guy. He wasn't very good, and was terrible at some throws.



To be fair, Les Miles missed on every single QB recruit he had for 10 years not named Ryan P, who got booted.

10 years.

So either they all sucked and our coaches are bad at evaluating talent.

Or they couldn't coach them for the college game.

Either way, coach's fault after a decade.

re: interesting comments on brandon harris
Harris was ranked right behind Watson coming out of hs and was the closest qb to him on rating.

I really think he could have been a good college qb in the right system. Doesn't mean it translates to pro but it doesn't have to. Having a great college career alone is awesome.

Let's just wait and see how he performs once the pressure is on and if he gets rattled in the pocket and hurrying his throws like he did here...

re: interesting comments on brandon harris
I remember last fall seeing a practice video where receivers ran the gauntlet straight across the field, straight line, constant speed, and about 6 QBs threw to them from 10 yards away. No defender, no pass rush.

I remember seeing Harris throw about 20 balls during this drill, and 7 or 8 were VERY inaccurate. Again, 10 yards away, simple pass, and he was terrible.

Several rantards on this board were in full excuse-mode and said Harris was SUPPOSED to throw inaccurately, which is complete nonsense, since all the other QBs were throwing accurately.

That solidified my opinion that Harris just can't throw short passes accurately.

But I do think he was put in the wrong offense here and maybe he'll do better under Fedora, in a scheme that fits his skill set.

Thank you for bringing this up. Below are the players' years played, and Cam's term with respective team. Most of the guys you hang Cam's hat on were with him in the pros, and relatively average. Unfortunately, Cam didn't have a stable full of NFL ready quarterbacks at LSU to hand the playbook to.

Trent Green - Redskins 1995-98 (did not play until 1998), Dolphins 2007; Cam Redskins 1994-96, Dolphins 2007

Drew Brees - Chargers 2001-05; Cam 2002-06

Joe Flacco - Ravens 2008-present; Cam 08-12

Jim Harbaugh - UM 5th year senior 1986; Cam 1986-93

Elvis Grbac - UM 1989-92; Cam 1986-93

Gus Frerotte - Redskins 1994-98; Cam 1994-96.

Majority here didn't shine until Cam was no longer coaching them, and/or Cam was with them for a very short period. One could argue he had very little to do with Harbaugh's development (one year with a 5th year senior), and you also stated earlier he only had 3 years at LSU. Do you believe Brees would not be the QB he is without Cam's tutelage? Did you watch him while he was at Purdue? Did you notice any progress from Brees after joining Payton's offense? Flacco won a super bowl with defense after Cam was FIRED. Grbac is the only one on your list whose entire career (collegiate) overlapped with Cam's. He was a big guy and big recruit that played during a pretty good run at UM and got a lot of help from surrounding teammates. Both Green and Frerotte arguably experienced the height of their NFL careers well after Cam.

Ricky on Antwaan Randle El
quote:

and he turned him into one of the most productive college qbs ever..


Randle El is a terrible example, but I expected this from you. Tim Couch set a lot of records under Hal Mumme, really torched the SEC. Would you consider Mumme a great coach?

quote:

he was named nfl assistant of the year while at San Diego.


Cam won this with one current and two future hall of famers on offense. All of which had/are having extraordinary careers without him.

quote:

you also can't count the time the same since on the field coaching and practicing is limited in cfb to 20 hrs a week.


Under this reasoning, I suppose all he needs 6-10 is years to develop a collegiate quarterback.

quote:

he was a nfl oc/qb coach or head coach from 1994-2012.


The guy has been around a lot of NFL quarterbacks, but so have all NFL coaches. There's also a lot of shitty coaches in the NFL, and NFL success doesn't always translate to college. The two biggest names on your list would most likely be no worse off had they never met Cam. The guy was fired from IU (no care about football) and replaced by post LSU Gerry DiNardo.

I really don't understand your love affair with the previous regime. They won a lot of games, but QB development was a glaring issue with all quarterbacks who started and ended their career at LSU. Your relentless defense of the coaches, and subsequent insinuation of player inadequacies disgusts me. The same coaches that promised Harris the moon put him in a position very few could succeed in.

re: interesting comments on brandon harris
RickDaddy/JaxTiger Statmaster: "That wasn't the Air Coryell Cam likes to run...NFL asst of the year" He was so bad at what he liked he was FIRED 5 TIMES.

New Hall of Famer Jason Taylor says Cam Cameron 'was an idiot'"I have no idea how he got the job. I've never been around a more incompetent head coach than Cam Cameron. I'm talking youth football, college. It was unbelievable.

Cameron, a control freak, hot-tempered, fought with Flacco & Harbaugh, has been fired 4 times (actually 5 - 2x at Ravens), and he never coached a QB except Indiana Randle El who was 45-50% completion, 42 TDs/37 INTs and had a 18-37 record with Cam as HC - result fired.



quote:

It’s what he didn’t do that got Cameron fired. He didn’t develop an offense with an identity or a good enough quarterback. Except for Flacco’s rookie year when the Ravens became a run-oriented offense, the Ravens failed every year afterwards in trying to become a passing team. Cameron didn’t get along well with Flacco. As the Ravens took the field in overtime Sunday, Flacco looked confused. And when he did his famed 360 move while trying to escape pressure, he looked as lost as he did duing his rookie season.


Miami HC 1-15: Fired. The Staff in Miami said Cameron was by far the biggest a-hole, far worse than Saban!!

Jackson, Zorn, and Caldwell were Flacco's QB coaches, not Cam. Caldwell mentored Peyton Manning. They had good personal relationships with Flacco while Flacco and Cam never got along. Flacco was always complaining about Cam being too conservative. Flacco wanted to run more HUNH, spread, and 3+ WRs to keep the defense off balanced and prevent substitutions and Cameron did not take his input, or the QB coaches input on game planning and play calling.

"Cam was a control freak." During the second consecutive loss, 4th of the year, to the Redskins and Rookie QB RGIII, Cam got into a heated discussion with Harbaugh and was fired the next day. Bisciotti, the owner, and Harbaugh decided if they were ever going to be an 'offensive team' Cam had to go.

We are talking 5 yrs! Cam and Flacco both started in 2008. The tension between Cameron with Zorn, and Flacco got so high in 2010 that Cam demanded Zorn be fired, forcing Harbaugh to make a tough decision to keep Cameron rather than Zorn. The owner wanted to fire Cameron and keep Zorn.

5 yrs with Flacco and Cam never got past I formation, 2WR/2TEs/FB, Flacco was sacked too often because Cam's slow vertical WR routes into double coverage made QB hold ball too long, poor play calling/game planning, ran when he should have passed, passed when he should have run, no misdirection, rubs, hitches, screens, crossing patterns, and he had the lowest 3WR utilization in the NFL - and that is the base formation in the Pass First NFL.

Cam was fired by the Ravens for running Miles' same "Stone Age" offense - conservative, archaic, predictable, sitting on 7-10 point leads, relying on the defense to win, and refusing to open up the offense with tempo/HUNH and spread passing tactics mixed with Run-Pass-Option plays which puts any defense on it’s heels, prevents subs, opens up the whole field, especially the middle, and defines the the most successful FBS and NFL teams. "The Ravens passing game wasn’t sophisticated. There weren’t a lot of rubs, crossing patterns, motion or a variety of sets. The Ravens seldom attacked the middle of the field and Cameron didn’t have a feel for games. He ran when he should have passed and passed when he should have run." Cam, always on the hot seat, was fired after 2 losses with only 3 games to go in 2012. Harbaugh and QB coach Caldwell (Manning's former HC) opened the offense: "We're cutting loose on offense. We're going to spread them out, run no-huddle, attack on every play, put the ball in Joe's hands. He's going to win the games for us." Shotgun, spread, tempo/HUNH, 3 WR sets and Flacco calling the plays instantly transformed the Ravens into an explosive 'offensive identity team' something conservative Cam could not do in 5 yrs and has never done. Flacco set the all time record in the 3 postseason games throwing 11 TDs, O INTs, averaging nearly 300 yds passing and 460 yds of offense/gm. Result: Super Bowl, MVP, and a 110 million contract.

In the 7-0 run up to ALA, ARK, and OM, Harris faced long 3rd downs averaging 8+ yds, converting 44%. That is a tall order for Joe Montana to quote McFarland.

It got worse in the ALA and ARK games as he faced 17 of 25 3rd downs of 8+ yds, converting 3 of the 17 for 18% while he converted 75% or 6 of 8 of the 3rd downs of 5 yds or less. Behind a run-oriented run-blocking OL that failed all year at the much more difficult task of pass protection, Harris was sacked/hit 8 times vs ALA, injuring his shoulder, knee, and groin, and 5 times vs ARK, and constantly threw under pressure to well-covered receivers.

Short touch passes over the middle have never been Cameron's playbook forte. Plus in 3rd and long without tempo/HUNH, motion, crossing patterns, rubs and a variety of sets in spread 3+WR sets, there are not going to be a lot of one-on-one mismatches, blown coverages, and the middle is not going to be open. When Harris threw on early downs he stayed ahead of the chains. Third and long are longer developing plays and ALA, ARK, and OM brought the house. On his 2nd qtr 40 yd TD to Dural, Cyrus Jones was unblocked and really nailed Harris and he was not the same after. There were 8 blown OL blocks in that game and Harris was nailed 8 times, often being crushed, or taking a hit while throwing, arms wrapped up and being driven into the ground on his throwing shoulder. He was under constant pressure, scrambling on long developing vertical routes that are Cam's stock and trade. Not ideal situations for touch passes to well-covered receivers.

What does all this wall of bs have to do with 86.3RAT under Cameron and 82,7RAT post Cameron?

quote:

I don't care enough to look it so not going to get in a big debate about this, but I recall from 2015 sit stats Harris 3rd RAT was approx 30pts higher than 1st RAT, and 20pts higher than 2nd RAT.
Also the difference in attempts on 1st and 3rd were minimal, and qty of 1st downs were almost identical also(actually 1 or 2 more on 3rd).

do you know how rare it is for a nfl qb to have the same OC for 4 years or their career?

there is none. I'm simply stating a fact. Cam Cameron's offensive resume and qb coaching speaks for itself. it's for sure better than Fedora's resume.

not one.

Bill Belichik and Pete Carroll have both been fired.

95% of all coaches get fired.

it's amazing that I'm supposed to take this board's opinion on Cam over all the nfl gms and head coaches that hired him.


quote:

1986–1993Michigan (WR/QB)
1994–1996Washington Redskins (QB)
1997–2001Indiana
2002–2006San Diego Chargers (OC)
2007Miami Dolphins
2008–2012Baltimore Ravens (OC)




again, Cam was justly fired but he isn't a shite offensive coach.
