I'll admit that I was drunk last nite when I watched Gruden's segment with Cam. But, what I came away with was......

Gruden: Cam, call out a play like you would at Auburn.

Cam: Duh...............................

Somebody tell me I missed something or just misunderstood his answer.


The way I took it is he was trying to come up with the longest play he could remember but couldn't because Auburn's system is predicated on very short play calls like 36 or whatever he eventually said.

How do you NOT prepare for going on TV with Gruden? You should know from watching previous years that you need a half dozen or so of your best plays in your head and can explain them in detail.

It's called BEING PREPARED! If Cam isn't willing to do this little amount of mental preparation, what the hell can we expect when Chud hands him a 900 page play book???


Survey says... he'd probably do a google search for the "Cliff notes" version of the playbook on the internet on that stolen laptop of his! Only to find out that it doesn't exist, in which case, he'd just rename all of the plays 1 through 900!!!! LMAO!!!!

So diagramming plays that he ran at Auburn and explaining what he had to read pre & post snap on them during that same segment means he was unprepared? The verbage thing is really overhyped IMO.

Clausen can write up plays so complex and beautiful that they'd bring tears to your eyes. He's a part of the reason why our offense was so great last season.


If Newton can't lie and come up with some make believe name for his "36 (example)" play, as he's drawing them up on a white board, on a tv show, something that he wasn't asked to do in college, then the Panthers have no use for him. rabble.

Well, what Newton should of said was:

"Well Sir, there is no vernacular that compares to the perplexity of linguistics that occurs in the National Footaball League. The Auburn University offense was manufactured to generate offense at a hastened pace, and therefore it was rather base in it's vocabulary. As such we used numbers and colors to determine our plays; my fellow gentlemen players would all know what to do."

All of this while sipping tea.

haha thanks for the update I'll be coaching a baseball game when we make the biggest mistake in franchise history. :) Goodnight all.

Funny. I'll be coaching flag football the night of the draft.

Why does Gruden even get the QB Camp segment??
Lord forgive me for even suggesting it, but shouldn't that have gone to Trent Dilfer (I really hate that guy) but he is way more qualified to run that segment than Gruden is.

It's still fun to watch though!


Maybe because he used to be a QB coach?

Sorry, took should have been take. I dont pay attention to spelling and grammar on the board because normally I am in a hurry. Glad to see the people on here are also highly educated. Im not saying that Cam Newton is an idiot for playing in the spread, I am just saying that rolling the no huddle through college hurts him A LOT. He said nothing or did nothing that impressed me in any of that meeting.. the gun reference was awful.... and when compared to Gabbert, Locker, and Dalton, he looked terrible talking football. Thats the point I was trying to make. At this point, like I have said all along, I want Dareus, P^2, or maybe even Von Miller. Newton will not make a difference this year, and if he does, it will be a negative one. Again, sorry about the error.

Seems a former NFL Player was also in on the interview, and not so impressed...

http://profootballta...n-film-session/

Former NFL defensive tackle Chris Hovan, who played for the Bucs during Gruden’s time there as head coach, was present for the filming. During the same radio segment in which Hovan body-slammed the Bucs for not taking firm action against Aqib Talib, Hovan offered his impressions of Newton, based on witnessing on a first-hand basis the interactions between Gruden and Newton.

“I mean, if you look at all the top flight quarterbacks, the Peyton Mannings and Tom Brady, they are so systematic when they play football,” Hovan told WQYK, via JoeBucsFan.com. “They know how to read coverages. The first and second audible or the third audible, where to go when the defense presents looks to them. And I don’t feel in a pressure situation that Cam can make those checks right now. If he was under Jon Gruden, if Jon Gruden was his head coach, he would definitely red shirt. If you are going to put him out there — first of all, Carolina’s offensive line, they pretty much only have Jordan Gross right now. He’s a left tackle and was drafted in the first round. If you put him in there with a suspect offensive line you are going to get the kid killed. Yeah, he can run . . . . but you can only run for so long. They are going to hunt this kid down. I don’t feel he is ready for the NFL level yet. Does he have the intangibles? Athletically, yes he does. But this is just a complex game when you go to the NFL level, especially at the quarterback position. You have to be ready to make those checks at the line of scrimmage. I don’t feel like he is ready for that yet.”



Just posting another opinion from inside the situation.

I can't disagree with any of that. Of course no one is ready to play in the NFL before they have a single NFL practice but Cam will most likely need to redshirt wherever he goes.

I think he whiffed by not mentioning Kalil.

Forgetting Otah I can understand given that he didn't play last year, But not Kalil.

As to the opinion on Newton, it's interesting. Hovan has no skill or experience as an evaluator that I know of, so I'd put his comments in the same category as I would any other players, but as a first hand witness of the process, it's worth making a mental note.
