Ashley Fox article on Cam Newton

Recommended Posts

ok.....so the question is, can cam act like an ass to his new receiving corps and throw them under the bus consistently like brady did with his group of unknowns last year?

 

and we would want this why?

 

to the real question....i think cam does make the team around him better already and he will do just fine with his new group of WRs.

No, and I don't see him throwing any of his teammates under the bus, that goes against everything we know of him so far.

He set the rookie passing record with no summer to work with team at all, I think he will be fine.

I hope this idiot isn't one of you:

Everyone knows the D for Carolina is the reason we made the playoffs. Superman was not the leader. The leader of the offense was veteran Steve Smith. Without Smith, I predict Carolina does not make the playoffs. The D can only do so much. (btw, Cam became more of a pocket passer due to his ankle bothering him)

I don't think this will be as hard as some folks make it out to be.  Didn't Newton do this fairly well as a rookie with no OTAs, no offseason and moving right into training camp.  Back then he was in a brand new system and didn't read defenses all that well.  Olsen was a new addition as was Shockey and LaFell was a rookie.  While he won't be throwing at least he will have OTAs and minicamp to bond which he didn't have with teams not reporting until the lockout was over.

Every year is a new year that Cam has to "prove himself." Lazy Journalism is lazy.

 

 

I've said this before, Newton will NEVER be able to prove himself. If he has 10 games with 100+ QB rating and 1 game of sub-40 QB rating, those that say the needs to "prove himself" will claim: "See, I told you Newton was not a good QB!" And proceed to mention the 40 game above all else.

lol go to a Dolphins board, you will never see one of their fans attempting to throw Tannehill under the Bus, same with the Bears and Cutler, or the Rams and Bradford, or the Lions with Stafford...

 

But we have PANTHERS fans talking about how overrated Newton is...

 

BTW, its worst on the Observer.

panthers win a lombardi..."sure, but can cam do it again?"

 

panthers win another...."sure, but can he win 3 in a row?"

 

cam retires after a HoF career....."sure, he was one of the best ever, but can he be a first ballot guy?"

 

no matter what he does, some will always have questions and doubts about him. i've accepted it and moved on.

Nobody could possibly say Brady was in this bad of shape when you combine the line and skill players around him.  

 

what skill players did he have last year?

So why all the butt hurt responses when people question Cam's ability to be able to make this group cohesive and productive.   It is a legitimate question which people are asking.  I think he will be fine but honestly it is legitimate for people to ask.  After this season it will be one more issue that Cam has mastered successfully.

 

Let people talk and speculate while Cam does his thing on the field.  We will all find out soon enough.

 

And there are other quarterbacks who get just as much grief as Cam.  Just ask Romo how many people question his every move.  How about Alex Smith and all the questions about his ability or lack thereof despite his success the past few years.

How is simply expecting our FO to field a competitive unit around our quarterback on his side of the football being "butt hurt"?

I'm going to assume that Cam, who will be working with an almost entirely new receiving corp(Olsen) will be compared to Brady many times this season.

I was referring to folks who constantly whine and complain about anyone who criticizes Cam or questions his ability.  If that is you then you are one of the folks I was talking about.  If it doesn't apply then ignore it.
