Don't panic when the offense looks bad in these games. Apparently it's all part of the master plan. Interesting quote from Cam Cameron when asked about how much improvement he wants to see in the third preseason game.
Cam said "....I try – in the preseason at times – to put us in difficult situations. I’ve made the mistake in the past of scheming routes to where the ball came out against, really, the right coverage the whole time, and I know Joe’s [Flacco] going to do that. I want to see the quarterback get completions when we get bad looks, when the defense really has the advantage. I’m really trying to put on some ankle weights a little bit at times in the preseason to find out some things that we might not find in the normal part of the season."
Adds an interesting dynamic to watching the Giants game Saturday night. When the offense looks out of sync is it? The defense making plays. The offense screwing up. or Cam calling the wrong play to put us in "difficult situations". Gives watching preseason games a little more intrigue.
I wonder if Mattison does something like that to see how his guys react to "difficult situations". Someone should ask him.
