Practice 8/2

probably won't....not sure any rookie, even the good ones, have the speed down early.

Cam looked cool as a cumcumber when it was just WR drills one-on-one with a single DB. Admittedly, he was killing it maybe with maybe one incompletion. I could tell, though, he was uncomfortable in the 11-on-11 being very fidgitty, happy feet and missing throws he was nailing earlier.

Everette brown has hardly looked bad enuff to be released. some of you jump to conclusions about brown because he was getting beat by jeff otah in the first week of practice? News flash most of the defensive ends in the league would get pushed around by otah. At the end of the season brown showed alot of promise. he should atleast play out his rookie contract.

Did Clausen look as bad today as it sounds?

Early, yeah, he looked average...horrible is a bit overblown. He was targeting Smitty too much and it seems that they just don't have that bond...don't know if they ever will. The throw that Jimmy consistantly missed was the comeback route on the sidelines. I couldn't tell if it was Jimmy, the WR or a combination of both.

Todays training camp thread is a much better read than yesterdays. Thanks.

All in all I say the two did well today, but in different areas. As mention Clausen struggled with the sideline comeback and Newton needs to work on keeping the ball down and not leading the WR so much. Clausen needs to treat positional drills the same as 11-on-11's. He tends to go though the motions and not play at game speed. His passes were lazy early on and got crisper as the practice drew on. Those first few passes are I guess what people were refering to as horrible.

It sounded like yesterday he started weak and finished strong. I wonder if he is not taking the positional drills seriously enough, like you suggested. That might explain the difference.

Could be, but if that is the case and I were Jimmy, getting outshined in the positional drills by a rookie wouldn't sit too well with me. In drills, Cam looked to be the better QB.

that speaks volumes....b/c this is Cam at his worst....and he already looks better than Clausen (2nd year player w/ 13 games and 10 NFL starts under his belt).

I can't wait for Cam to go out in games and do these things Riv loves, and prove all these haters wrong. Still grasping for straws and he just keeps taking them away from you.

And the craziest thing, he's OUR QB, why wouldn't you want him to succeed? I TOLD YA'LL!!! We have a legit franchise QB for the first time ever, we have a right to sound like homers and be stoked.
