Well for a man that was drafted No 1, he sure sounds pissed off. I like the fire.

First rounder for our backups?? lol. If they are that good maybe we should keep them..

Hell no, ship them out to the highest bidder. We don't know what Kolb will fetch, but Schaub required quite a bit.

odds are high Moore and Clausen and Pike don't even see the field except in preseason.

He doesn't seem focused on the money or the honor of being drafted. I am on board. I also think his attitude about running is shared by Rivera. You have a guy who runs a 4.56 40 at 6'5" and 250 lbs. That is not Vick, Steve or Vince Young...It is Cam. Teach him not to lower his shoulder but to slide or run out of bounds, but let him go.

I am on board. I also want Clausen to light it up. Moore too. I want depth and people offering us first rounders for our backups next year.

I realize the weapon Vick is as a QB when he's breaking 20 yard runs, however I prefer this philosophy, being closer to Aaron Rodgers than Vick..

Vick said himself that the fatigue we saw on TV down the stretch was worse than it looked..

Take what the defense gives you, avoid taking big hits, and remember to stay healthy. That's one thing I did notice from Cam's highlights was it appeared he knew when to get out of bounds..

Yeah, I heard that. But I mean he is speaking the truth. I am sure it is very annoying that people think he is dumb or that he doesn't understand complexity.

I would probably say about the same thing. I don't specifically like the phrase "you cant fault me", but I dont know how else to say it besides, "it was out of my hands and I couldn't control the playbook".

Either way, its not bad.

:iagree:

The thing I notice about Cam is he doesn't express himself as eloquently as some other prospects. With that said, he wasn't drafted for his public speaking and he's only human. I'm not sure many of us would've handled the brutal scrutiny as well has he has over the past few months.

IMO Moore, an un-drafted FA, was gone the moment he got hurt last season.

Carolina will need to bring in a FA for a while until Cam (and or Clausen) is ready to go. They do have the option of NOT bringing in a FA and just relying on Clausen to be the temp/stop-gap until Cam is ready. If Carolina was smart, they would bring in a Vet while Schula worked with both Clausen and Cam to develop both of their talent. Cam should be treated like Rodgers - let him learn and get ready until he is prepared to come in, a luxury Clausen was not afforded.

Agree 100%, use that mobility to scramble to pass, not to run so much... like Rothlesberger/Rodgers does. Vick is amazing, but he's gonna get killed doing that sh*t.
