It's worth a listen. More than just Cam in there. Basically says Cam wasn't as successful last year as fans thought. He was a product of coaches being creative in his use catching the league by surprise. He was 6-10 but thought he was successful. He has never failed before at any level. Once the league adjusted to the O scheme Cam didn't.

Listen to it....he should have charged the Panthers for that insight....other than the Godfrey backing...he was pretty much dead on.

Specifically mentioned our defensive line and Luke Kuechly as strengths of the team. And Charles Godfrey as well (that is sure to endear him to our fanbase).

Critical of the offensive line, and our offensive line and of especially of Cam. Said that defenses have caught up with him, and he needs to adjust and hasn't so far.

Someone else made a stupid comment about Cam being a failure because of the number of wins last year. IMO, blaming wins or lackthereof on one guy, even the qb is stupid.

Polian always talks down on the Panthers every time I hear him talk. If he actually knew what he was talking about he would know we don't run the same offense as we did last year. The only thing other teams look for is the read option which we all know has failed but Chud thinks otherwise.

He was respectful and full of class. He answered every question directly and didn't dodge anything, except the one question that was not his to answer, which was who should be the next GM. It's a shame we parted ways with this guy. He is a winner everywhere he goes.

How did the league adjust when Chud changed our offensive scheme this year?

I don't agree about what he said about the coaching staff doing everything right vs the Bears, Falcons and Bucs to win.

The read option is killing are offense and Polian didn't even mention this, he seems to place the blame more on players then on the horrid play calling.

I did listen and I have listened to a ton of what he has said in the past. Polian does not like the Panthers and especially does not like Cam. He was on espn not to long ago bashing the Panthers and Cam while slurping Bob Griffin.

I do not want that man anywhere near this franchise ever again.

Cam broke all of his golden boys rookie records, but he claims Cam didn't have much success his rookie year is BS.

I don't agree that the players lost the Bears, Atlanta or Bucs game either....poor coaching decisions in the 4th quarter cost us those games. You don't lose 4th quarter leads the way Rivera does if you are a good coach. Period.

Well we literally had the Atl game won....and fumbled the ball back a yard wiping the win out.

Polian surely has no grudge against the Panthers, right?

People(Polian mentioned this previously) always mention that Cam yards went down in the 2nd half of his rookie year which showed teams were adjusting to him. This opinion shows that they either are idiots or didn't watch the games, as in the 2nd half he was more efficient and was playing great football. His pass attempts also went way down and the team was winning.

While I do agree that teams have adjusted a bit to Cam(done a better job of containing him in the pocket), they aren't doing anything massively different. Most of Cam's mistakes are self inflicted or due to terrible play calling/scheme. Saying his success is because of coaches is such poo, as the coaches don't throw/run the football, they can only put you in a position to succeed, you have to do the rest and even still Cam made many a plays beyond the actual play call or x's & o's.

He apparently has a low opinion of defensive coaches around the league if they let a rookie fool them for 35 TD's.

Polian put together a good team in Buffalo and was fortunate enough to get Peyton in Indy. However, his last years in Indy were very, very ordinary.

And for those that complain about how we overpay players, take a look at what Freeney is earning this year.

There's a reason Polian is a talking head rather than a GM right now. His draft record the last few years of his tenure was abysmal.

And his knowledge of the Panthers seems to follow suit.

That has what to do with his draft record? And two years after their last Super Bowl appearance they went 2-14.

But you love to act like you have a clue.

Does he think the next GM will stick with Cam for duration of his contract? On the preview page it says that he would address that

1 player goes down and the team goes 2-14. Unacceptable and exposed the true lack of talent on the roster. Only shows how amazing Peyton Manning is.

If that is the case how are they 7-4 this year with a rookie starting. Must be some talent there somewhere.
