Jordan Cameron Stars Again

Former USC football player Jordan Cameron, who barely played for the Trojans, is becoming an NFL star. He caught the game-winning TD in the final minute, his third of the day, as Cleveland defeated Minnesota, 31-27. Here’s the catch.

Kind of makes you wonder why he didn’t play more in college.

    Makes you wonder why Xavier is not utilized more also.

    Probably because you don’t throw Bubble Screens to the Tight End……………

    Probably because he only played two seasons at SC and was a WR not a TE. He played behind Ronald Johnson and Damian Williams who were far better than him. Even if he played TE at SC he would have been behind Anthony McCoy and Rhett Ellison who were also far better than him.

    But I didn’t expect you to put any effort or research into your question. You just like to say something negative and look like a di*k.

    The way Pete Carroll would stack Talent on his roster it was amazing to me that quality Players did not transfer to other University’s when it was apparent they were going to ride the bench. It seems like some player would accept a bench warming seat the going else where and maybe getting drafted. Coach Carroll would bury quality running backs on the bench forever if they fumbled the ball as oppose to trying to help develop their skills to avoid the problem. And Coaches can do that when they have quality depth.

    Why is this an issue? Matt Cassell rode the bench behind Carson Palmer and still he played in the NFL?

    Because the fullbacks in the NFL have become replaced with H-backs. The fullback has become increasingly anachronistic. Carroll ran a pretty vanilla, vertical offensive scheme at USC. Zone blocking, passes over the top, TE who block more than catch (Fred Davis the exception, but his big year was after Lame left). Fullbacks who block and catch.

    To deal with the increase of middle blitzes, ala the Pittsburgh Steelers, teams have learned to go to taller, faster TEs who catch better than they block, because they are match-up nightmares for LB’s, and especially if you blitz up the middle. With the increase of more shotgun offenses and read-options, the really isn’t a need for a fullback. That’s where Jordan Cameron comes in.

    Unfortnately, Kiffin has yet to notice this.

    he’s bout to become an all-pro because the browns are discarding their offensive weapons…

    There were a lot of reports of him making great catches in practice (kind of like De’von Flournoy) but he hardly got any playing time on game day.
