You are def new to the Huddle. Pessimism abounds. Expect 10 more negative threads to counter this one.

Good read, though. Pie.

I'm not sure I agree about the huge jump.

 

Cam has seen a constant steady progression of his game.

That progression resulted in wins last year.  I agree that he's steadily progressed but national media didn't notice until last year because they weren't winning before that.

I agree. Just more proof that most of the national media have no clue about the evolution of our team.

The defenses progression resulted in wins last year. Cam was never the problem.

Wasn't our defense top 10 two years ago? I think Cam did show improvement with game winning drives and fumbling this year, which was a big help.

Funny, how the defense the national media touts so much now, could barely be mentioned Newton's first two years, when they were costing the Panther wins at the end of games.

 

Now, if the Panthers have another great year, and the offense produces, will Newton have/take another "huge jump" in consecutive years (or did the WR group last year REALLY Suck, unlike what the media told us)??

Regardless of what the defenses overall ranking was in 2012, they cost the Panthers several games at the end, by not holding leads Cam and the offense gave them. So yes, they were the problem.

 

This is where, you have to actually watch or remember (in case you forgot) the games.

 

Note: I mentioned "watch" for the national media, not you.

How dare you insult the national media by suggesting they do their jobs.

That's true. But Cam did struggle 4th quarter of close games in the redzone his first two years. I think his improvement there is notable and a plus. Also, the decrease in fumbling was a plus. I think there was notable improvement last year.

Also, my stat was off. It doesn't seem like we were top ten in any meaningful statistic in 2012 that I can see.
