Respectable but he'll be overdrafted off of last yr.
and rushing yards?
You're obviously looking for Cam to suffer a pretty big sophomore slump. I'll disagree. I think 4,700 total yards and 35 total TD's is his floor.
I think his Y/A will be closer to 7 than 8 (was 7.8 in 2011). I think teams will defend the deep ball better vs Cam, forcing him to pick his way down the field. His accuraccy and ability to be consistent will be challenged the way he will be schemed by DC's, resulting in similar passing TD totals (low 20's). Not as many cheapies.
His rushing TD's will regress to the mean and be more like 7-8 rather than 14. So about 30 total TD's. I just don't see him passing for 250yds/gm in 2012. So about 3700 passing yds seems right.
defenses will have just as much trouble this year as last, probably more, in scheming against him.
If it worked your way defenses would never adapt.
I get Cam is a special talent, but they will force him to throw more stop him from running. I think this helps the rest of the offense, i see stewart being a bigger part of the offense this year. There just not going to not acknoledge he broke the qb rushing td record
