Ashley Fox article on Cam Newton

68 posts in this topic

I guess cause the writter wasn't sucking cam off, is the reason that many are in here complaining about a well written piece.

I don't think everyone expects the writers to "suck Cam off" as you put it but this is the same article that is written about Cam before every season and each season he has excelled at what he's been asked to do here. The guy has had very limited talent around him on offense around him since he's been here. It's pretty common to see the same rehashed articles putting all the responsibility on Cam. Many times it seems like all there doing is casting doubt on his abilities so the "I told you so" crowd can chime in at every possible opportunity.

what skill players did he have last year?

it's not said and done, we still have the draft so i can fairly retract my statement, but:

 

2013 Pats O-line > Current Panthers Oline as of 4-29-14

 

Gronk > Olsen

 

Vereen/Blount > William/Stewart

 

Amendola/Edelman/Dobson/Thompkins > Cotchery/Avery/Underwood  although not by much

 

again, we still have the draft so this can change, i am acknowledging that.  i also acknowledge Brady makes these guys better than they would be with a lesser QB.

Blount is a Steeler now. 

 

Amendola is hard to judge because he's hurt a lot.

 

Edelman strikes me as a guy who'd be very ordinary if he were on any other team.

Ashley Fox isn't a great writer. I mean I remember a few years ago before the divisionals she basically overlooked the Ravens saying they had no chance against Denver. The Ravens won the Super Bowl that year.

Of course we have the "y'all cam nuthuggers" posse chiming in

If you don't think Cam is a great talent or has proven himself less than he gets credit for, by all means go ahead and fantasize about Matt Moore playing QB for the panthers again.

Cam has talent around him. Has had talent around him. Will continue to have talent.

I do love the excuse that he's had no talent around him.

ESPN is really going downhill, listening to the Texans reporter yesterday on NFL Live was painful to listen too. I guess they're just trying to compete with the eye candy on NFLN. Yeah, lets bring in an inside reporter that knows absolutely nothing because she's semi pretty.

 

And this article is confusing as hell, I don't know what to take from it other than he should be more like Brady. Did the writer not watch the game last year where Cam led a 4th quarter comeback throwing the game winning TD's to Ginn, a guy whose career he helped resurrect. Did the writer not realize Cam broke the rookie record for passing with no OTA's, I guess he threw for all those yards outside the pocket, he actually threw for less yards from the pocket last year but he was more efficient. The writer implies the players around him elevated his play then acknowledges they were mediocre at best last year and are now all gone. Did Cam not help Smitty return to greatness after the Clausen year, has Olsen not had his best years under Cam.

 

If there was a year Cam deserved a little slack, this will be it since we are having to essentially rebuild the Offense. and like the writer noted we don't even have a #1 WR yet.

Are there still really people out there suggesting Cam still has something to prove?

He has carried an offense that hasn't quite been dripping with good players for 3 seasons now.

Lol at anybody who suggests otherwise.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
