This has been touched lightly in some threads, and I agree. Cam needs to let it loose. He is much less likely to get blasted when he takes off and has control of when he takes a hit.

He is completely ignoring huge running lanes because (most certainly) he is being told not to run by the staff. It gets to a point where he needs to give zero fugs and just play his game.

We have seen what his legs do to a defense. He eats up yards, requiring the defense to honor it, and then the passing game opens up. 

 

And we have all seen how a big run gets him into the game and into a rhythm.

 

Giving this man 100 million to play like Drew Bledsoe is bullshit and it needs to stop now. It's less frustrating having Jeff Lewis/Jimmy Clausen as your QB then wasting a blue chipper.

 

Nothing like losing to the got damn Saints to get me fully pissed off.

Some thing is very much wrong with the chemistry of this team

leopards don't change their spots

if ground and pound gets the W then do it

if the combination of linemen can't do it then Put in Morton  And get it done 

find  5  plays they can collectively run, and run them

go Vince Lombardi and get it done

If I were coaching this team and my life were on the line and we had to win one game I'd run the read option and designed runs for Cam like crazy. We would smash our way down the field.

Cam can't keep running and make it through his career without taking major physical damage imo. Like brain injury for example. Just can't do it.

Cam, despite having multiple opportunities we have decided not to pursue anyone worth a damn at both tackle positions. If you want to survive in this league you're going to have to run for your life. 

Ps while doing so, make plays and win us games

Thanks

Panthers Management

I agree. The current plan is to limit his running so that he is healthy when he is 33. He already isn't healthy and the  gameplan is making it worse/him play worse.  Theres no point in holding him back if that means we get half of Cam Newton. I'd rather his career end in 5 years with Cam being himself than watch 10 years of wasted ability.

    We don't need "Running" Cam. We need "Mobile" Cam. We need him extending plays, that is where he is at his most dangerous. That is when Defenses are at their most vulnerable as well. Is he going to run? Is he going to pass? Make the wrong decision, and you are toast. 

 

    At this point in time, Cam is just not scaring anyone. He is a statue back there. And he is getting whacked but good. Whether he is still not healthy, being told not to, or whatever it is. He is no where near as mobile as he has been in the past. IMO, we don't need to Run Cam, we just need him to be more mobile, and get back to putting the fear of Zod into opposing Defense.

 

    If mobile Cam comes back we should be ok. Because the longer statue Cam hangs around, the longer this funk could last.

First of all I agree 100% that Cam needs to start running again.   However, one thing I have noticed is that every time he runs there is helmet to helmet contact.  I believe the rule is (I might be wrong) but they don't consider helmet to helmet on running backs.  Every single time he runs and doesn't slide or get out of bounds.  There is helmet to helmet contact with Cam.   No other QB that runs gets this treatment and I believe the word on the street is.  If Cam runs make sure helmet to helmet occurs.

They aren't and won't protect Cam as a QB anytime he runs.  I also believe the refs don't look for it at all.

If Cam was a video game, running would be a "power up" for him. After his rushing touchdown Sunday he looked like Cam Newton again for the first time this season. Making big plays with his feet increases is confidence, and that keeps him from hesitating when in the pocket.

Ankle, shoulder, brain for starters.

No matter what you WANT, I doubt you will ever see the old Cam except in rare cases.

He will have to become a competent passer or, well, we are in for a long season

If I was Cam I would just run and go out (if injured) with a bang and a highlight reel. Otherwise, he is still going to go out (of the League) due to efficiency. Go out on your own terms rather than be forced out, imo..

The statement is true that he made about the lion. Coaches are going to get him killed. He needs to scrap what they are telling him and be Cam. Like he said he wins his way but thats not happening now..once he gets healthy if he wants to be more of a statue do so but right now with this line its not a good time.
