Jordan Gross On Cam Newton and the QB:

"you know I had him over the house last monday (or wednesday), and I told him that I had a lot of preconceived notions about you. I said, You just assume that if a guy is the #1 pick, wins the heisman, has advertisements and endorsement deals... that he's gonna have a sense of arrogance to him. I told him this to his face, because thats kinda what I thought. I wasnt sure about the draft pick. I liked it because of the potential, but I didnt know what kind of guy we were getting. He's really won me over. That qb position has been for the last few years ....stammers... (Jay: Less than desirable) Yeah, Im a Matt Moore fan. I thought he had talent there.... I think Jimmy did ok last year...(Jay Weezie: no you didnt) but definitely we have room to work. Im hopeful that Cam can come in here and do that. He's showed up in great shape... which says alot because you cant buy getting in shape. You can only do that by working. He's throwing balls... anything we asked him to do, he's done it. We had him out there flipping tires and hitting tires with sledge hammers... tough stuff that a primadonna. He came in a kept his mouth quiet and had fun with the guys and worked hard with the guys. He just did everything you would want him to do... and I dont think thats something you can groom or act out. I even had him out on Lake Wiley on the boat, and pulled him behind the boat with the O-line guys, so he's really fitting in well."


Quote of the year?

i love that he's building that relationship with the oline. i'm guessing ziemba is out there with them as well. he's going to need these guys working hard to protect him. the better the relationship he has with them, the better they will be blocking for him.

Most of the time we will run 22 personnel with 2 running backs and two tightends. That means you can only have 1 wideout. If we run many 3 receiver or four receiver sets, the tight ends and running backs will be catching the ball. Or we will going 12 personnel with a single back and 2 tight ends and 2 wideouts. If they put Newton back there by himself, it will be a 2 minute drill. We won't be counting on his arm to make many plays.
I am glad Cam is exceeding my expectations but we won't be going wide open especially at first. We will running a more conservative offense than many think this year. We will be running the ball alot since that part of the offense will be further along than the passing game. That will be even more the case the longer the lockout lasts.

i still expect to see a lot more one back sets than anything. 2 WR/2TE or 3 WR/1TE...depends a lot on how well the Oline is blocking for him..

it won't be wide open, but i don't see it being particularly conservative, either (compared to foxball).

Any idea on how good, or bad, Armanti's looked?

hadn't heard anything. seems like he's entrenched (more or less) in the role of a WR. there weren't really any comments on anyone except a couple rookies and guys coming back from injury.
