Sporting News Believes We Should Rest Cam Until Philly Game

Recommended Posts

Quote

 Cam Newton is broken, and things around him are breaking.

Before it's too late, the Panthers need to help their quarterback play well and get whole again ... by not playing him at all for a couple weeks.

With Carolina at 2-1 fresh off Sunday's 34-13 home beatdown at the hands of NFC South-rival New Orleans and facing AFC East juggernaut New England next, it would seem like the wrong time to think about resting Newton. But continuing to play him would be ignoring how he's not fully recovered from his right shoulder surgery and is further hampered by a bad ankle.

It's hard for me to disagree with anyone suggesting we rest him.   He clearly isn't healthy and if we keep him out there we risk compounding the issue, not only for football reasons but for his health in general.

I'm not really opposed to that since it could pay off in the long run. Unfortunately, we don't have a good backup. I don't think we can be competitive against any good team if DA starts. We could dig ourselves into a season long hole if we sit Cam now.

If this is the offense we're going to be running then having a big time playmaker like Cam isn't exactly necessary. If we're just looking to dump the ball off within 10 yards every play with the odd downfield shot well then rest Cam. 

It would never happen but I'd much rather have Kaaya back there over DA. Kaaya will make some rookie throws but he can stand back there and make the right reads. DA has been so bad I don't want that guy anywhere near the field. 

If Matt Kalil wasn't so f'n awful then this probably never gets brought up but Cam can't keep taking these kind of beatings. Cam deserves better than this sh*t and as much as I admire him for playing through the amount of pain I can only assume he's in I rather not see him ruin the rest of his career because of the r*tards around him.

Should've started on the PUP. Should've kept Webb. Should've went after Brissett. Brissett would've been good enough to get by until Cam would return. But Rivera just had to go and destroy Cam.

I'm with you. I'd rather have Kaaya than DA as the backup

It all comes back to Matt Kalil...

Kaaya is decent (like almost any QB) if given proper protection but his mechanics go to sh*t when pressured. I watched Kaaya's 4th preseason game today and outside of a horrible INT in the endzone he looked pretty good for a 22 year old rookie. He doesn't try to do too much and makes solid reads.

But like I said... Matt Kalil, and if it wasn't for Kalil we're most likely not even having this discussion. So damn frustrating.

Yeah. I was hoping he could at least just be average but it looks like he won't even be that. He looks remmers bad.  We're fuged. Cam deserves better

I wish they would rest Cam until the beginning of training camp next season.  Something just ain’t right with his mind + that shoulder.  Getting sacked 3-6 times a game doesn’t help the situation. Just shut him down.  All about the Kaya train.

Hard to argue against resting Cam.

We just made the saints look like the steel curtain.
