As someone correctly observed on another thread and was aptly shown yesterday, Torrey is far more dangerous taking a high percentage, shorter pass and running after catch than he is streaking for a one-out-of-four deep completion!

Likewise, Joe said about deep balls, it's often,... "throw deep and hope"!

Sportscaster and former Charger QB Dan Fouts observed that: "The Ravens have the tools" but said the play-calling [read: game calling] "... lacks creativity"!

He played for Cam,................... ijs

I remember when a lot of fans were ready to dismiss him in last year's pre-season....not me then, and certainly not now!! What an offensive "pro-bowl" type player he is to our team!!! Love Torrey!!

That was a very hard catch to make as well, as a point of reference I've seen Wes Welker drop a few like that.

I said it before and I'll say it again. Torrey Smith deserves to be Player of the Year because of his committment to keep playing for his brother. In addition, Ray Rice should be No. 2 because of that RIDICULOUS 30 yd reception in overtime.

I knew once our Offense started incorporating slants, rubs, drags, and crossing routes, good things would happen. Why we waited until 8 minutes left in the 4th to do so, is beyond me. I will take it though. It was pretty obvious how successful our Offense became when we started using the middle for passes.

If we keep doing that, I wont have as much to fuss at Cam for!

I loved Torrey's play in this game! He finally started to show that he trusts his ability to make plays after the catch. You have skills kid! Trust those skills and make plays for us! I can't wait to see how he develops once he is 100% confident in what he can do and what he is capable of.

This was a great draft pick. His tremendous ability to go for and catch the ball. Between Torrey and Ray Rice (Ray actually ran 60 yards on the play to gain 30 yards gamesaver) I am so proud of them both.

Give Norv Turner an Offensive Coordinator's contract in February! He'll be available!

Cam? He can test the FA coaches' market!

I agree. But what I dont get is why Cam waits so long to do what he should be doing from jump. We always pull out these type of plays only when we have too. But if we played like that all game we may not always have to fight to win in the first place. Its like he brings these plays out of a secret vault at times. I just dont get it. The Steelers have been usuing Mike Wallace like this since he began his career . Cam has to actually use his talent to their potential all game and not only in "secret mode" time.

Im just over here sitting back and thinking how sick out offesne could really be if the guys were used right. Lets be honest. We can just start with our tight ends. Imagine getting Pitta and Dickson rolling in a game. Who could really stop those guys? Out offensive potential is limitless at times but we barely even scratch the surface. Cam please come out of your comfort zone and let the wings fly. At times Cam's lack of creativity holds us back. This is the time for him to really earn his stripes and get everybody invloved.

Torrey is exceeding all expectations. And Give Cam some credit, as stubborn as he is, he is making adjustments. No one is blaming the O line coach for giving up 5 sacks and all the pressure Joe has been facing all year. Who knows what we would look like if Joe had a half second more time each drop back.

the catch by torrey and the 4th and 29 play was just flat out incredible, especially the 4th down...if anquan had given up on that play it was game over...usually he makes some clutch 1st down catches to keep us in it, but the effort on that play from rice and boldin...talk about nailbiter.
