    We seem to have a lot of fans who are more concerned with how Cam looks and compares to the rest of the league rather than how the entire team looks. A lot of people complaining about concentrating on defense were the same people complaining early on in Cam's career that the defense was blowing leads.

    What plays were you watching? The first one Stewart never indicates the run is off tackle, he's following Tolbert the whole time. He'd have to go backwards around the defenders that blew up Olsen and Remmers to get outside. The 2nd one looks like Norwell was never supposed to help Folkerts with that man. So either Norwell screwed up, or Folkerts was blown up.

  3. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Very good game by Cam   

    After the first couple series he really tightened up his throws. He looked good tonight, as did Cotchery and the O-line.

    He slipped, I'd love to know how that's his fault.

    What kind of offensive coordinator calls a deep pass on 3rd and short? Fire McDaniels!

    Cam did get knocked around in the game last year, but his injury occurred on a play where he had all day to throw and chose to run with an open field in front of him. He simply got down late and essentially rolled into the defender that hit him.

    I wanted AJ instead of Cam. I was really intrigued by Dennis Dixon and wanted us to give him a shot when he came out. I thought Matt  Moore could be a serviceable starter. I was not a fan of Benjamin, preferred Mathews.

    Pff credits Corey with one drop, so I guess they saw it as a tipped or defended ball as well.

  9. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Why keep Cotchery and not look at Wayne?   

    Everyone, even Avant if you pro rate his numbers to the number of snaps Wayne took would grade higher. Oh, and just for those few I've seen mention Nicks, he is just above Wayne at a -10.0 on over 250 fewer snaps. Wayne graded at a -10.3.

    Wayne was credited with 9 drops last year and was in the bottom ten in receiver ratings on PFF. He's not the receiver he was even 2 years ago. Just because you recognize a name does not automatically make them good.

  11. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Our offense is piss poor, time to cough up something for a WR, Gettleman   

    People clamoring for Wayne clearly did not see him play last year. He was one of the worst rated receivers in the league by PFF. He's credited with 9 drops last year. He's no better than Cotchery at this point in his career

  12. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Likely defensive strategy we'll see all year long   

    Why does everyone act like those deep passes on 3rd and short were the only routes being run on that play? Cam chooses to throw to that particular route. I get that Shula isn't a offensive genius and has shortcomings but it's getting ridiculous how he gets blamed for every issue on offense including Cam's decision making. Of course if Shula called a play with nothing but shallow routes on 3rd and short you'd all complain he didn't call a route to stretch the field.

  13. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Not a good practice today   

    How did a post about about the passing game being bad today veer into posts about implementing a zone blocking scheme for the run game?

  14. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic The O-Line looked a lot better on Friday, thanks to Cam Newton   

    Oher did what he's supposed to do, ride his guy behind Cam and out of the play. The problem in the past was instead of stepping up in the pocket Cam would often spin backwards right into the path of the defender. Watch other teams play and you'll see a perfectly clean pocket is not as common as many here seem to think. Being able to set and throw with bodies around is what often separates average quarterbacks from the special ones.

    This is what I was wondering. He's nothing like Bersin or Boykin and more in the form of Brown and Ginn. Seems he'd be more likely to replace one of them rather than a large bodied possession receiver like Bersin or Boykin.
