Coach: Protecting Cam top priority

apparently Newton thinks Antoine Cason is a WR and was an Eagle last year...

How in gods name do you confuse Avant with Cason

When you write NFL articles from a NASCAR pit stall you confuse Avant and Cason.

Not to mention our failure to get in for a couple TD's against SF that arguably cost us the game.

 

I wonder how much of an influence that has on their thinking. Wouldn't be shocked to see a couple of road graders drafted like Cyrus, Moses, Gabe Jackson or Yankey.

Running back can make the run game better, QB and/or WR can make passing game better.

A good o-line makes everything better

 

Exactly.  Fixing the O-line helps both running and passing games.  I believe if our running game was better last year, we would feel entirely different about our WR situation.   However a bad O-line made our passing game look worse.  If Cam wasn't such a talent we would be having a top 5 pick this year.

WR's that can separate also offer protection

 

Exactly because then cam doesn't have to stay in the pocket longer looking for a wr to get open which happened plenty of times last season.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
