Rivera On 99.9 the Fan

49 posts in this topic

I forget where this came up, but it appears Cam won't have many designed run plays as previously mentioned.

when Rivera was talking about the pick then ight of the draft he said they really liked his ability to make plays as a runner, not scrambling, and this was part of the bit in which they were talking about how they had modified the playbook for him etc. It sounded to me like they thought his legs were more valuable than as a scrambler.

I don't expect him to run anywhere near how many times he ran at Auburn but it really sounded like they had some plans for his legs.

I'll listen to this when I can get a podcast to see what he said but yeah.

- In between Don McNabb and Big Ben. Cam isn't a scrabbling QB. Most of his runs were called plays. Things you saw time and time again was that when he had a called pass play he stayed in the pocket, or when he got flushed his eyes stayed down field and was looking to pass

Ron Rivera is WRONG! Cam "Fake" Newton is a One-Read and Run QB. He has accuracy issues and is too stupid to understand complex plays! He needs to GTFO of the Panther's organization

Anti-Cam Newton Club

Losing Smitty will create a large need for the Panthers, but it is comforting knowing that the team will not give him up just to make him happy. We expect value in return and aren't looking to dump a superstar just because he is a little unhappy.

I am curious what kind of interest Smitty gets in the open market. I look forward to it not being enough...

like i said don't be surprised if we aren't agressive in trying to get vincent jackson from the chargers..if we indeed want to get rid of smith.

I can't remember the last time I saw a designed run play for an NFL QB other than a QB sneak up the middle for one yard. I think more than anything, they want to roll Cam out to put him in open space. I am confident he will make the first guy miss the majority of the time giving WR's enough time to get open.

well rivera knows him and unlike haynesworth he's actually played well consistently.

If we get a good deal for Smitty I'll be thrilled. I'll miss him, but I drool at the thought of extra draft picks now.

I like how he addressed Steve Smith and making it known to him that Steve Smith is not greater than the team. Which is the way it should be.

I didn't get a chance to listen to it either.. so now I missed both references. ;)

I don't doubt it might have sounded like that in the presser, I'll take your word for it. I just hope it's not true. I don't see the benefit when compared to the risk, IMO..

I mean, a couple times is fine.. to me, more than 5 is getting carried away...
