NFL.com: Cam Newton primed to regress

55 posts in this topic

This night has all the makings for a huddle suicide watch so why not! Go scream into a pillow or turn up some Jack Daniels and feel better.

As a huge Newton fan and believer, this season sets up as worrisome. The weapons around Newton are miserable; the Panthers have the worst wide receiving crew in the league, even if rookie Kelvin Benjamin is effective. The offensive line lost two effective starters in Travelle Wharton and Jordan Gross. The Panthers are counting on their defense and running game to carry them, but it's hard to imagine the defense playing better in a division where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons should improve.

In short: We expect Newton to do his part. He's a young, improving franchise quarterback. But he's probably going to get blamed when the team around him sags.

Nevermind that these are actually some valid points.

I saw this and until our receivers can prove themselves the media will continue to predict our pass game to struggle. I personally believe that we will be okay considering we cut players that dropped many passes and replaced them with players that can catch passes.

If Chandler can prove himself than we will end up with basically the same offensive line as last year.

wow, another crappy list. I thought the regression tag was slapped on young players, not players that can see the twilight of their careers. 

 

 

 

clearly this was just to sh!t on Cam but didn't want to be obvious about it.

Plenty of valid points. Title is misleading.

He is a Cam fan.....says he will be improperly blamed and take all the heat if we struggle thanks to a weak OL, weak WRs and weak traditional rush. He pretty much endorses Cam as legit with a legitimate chance his weak cast holds him back......which it could

I had actually typed up that this is starting to get out of control, but then I realized we're way past that point.

I knew I should have majored in journalism.

NFL.com title is misleading, I just used their own words.

These lists are uber dumb though. It must be nice to work at nfl.com this time of year.

I still see no valid points that Cam will regress, only that perhaps the panthers might.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
