Is anyone else concerned about Cam's accuracy? When has a QB ever entered the NFL with below average accuracy for a QB at the NFL level and turned into a dynamic passer? Accuracy is something that shouldn't be a question for a #1 draft pick. I've seen posts comparing him to Vick and Steve Young, but he reminds me much more of a The Golden Calf of Bristol or VY. Vick and Young were/are accurate passers with great running ability. I see Cam/VY/The Golden Calf of Bristol as great runners with below avg accuracy.
I believe Cam can extend drives and help win games because of his running ability, but to take the Panthers to the level we want to be, I'm doubtful. Unless you have an unbelievable defense, winning the Super Bowl requires a really good passing game in the modern day NFL. Can accuracy be developed that much at this point? It seems to me most QBs either have it by the time they reach the NFL or they never do. I see Cam having a VY type record as a starting QB which is good, but I'd be suprised to see him turn into an elite passer.

Cam has no accuracy issues.

Cam always throws the ball to the perfect spot, the receivers are just in the wrong spot most of the time. It's their fault.

Cam is the best passer college football has ever seen and in no way were those numbers influenced by throws behind the LOS and his receivers doing all the work.

I expect Cam to be the best passer in the NFL.

Look at McNabb's success in Philly....how many winning seasons and how many postseason runs did they have? How was his accuracy?

Cam has tons of talent. He has no accuracy issues going deep. He might not be Peyton Manning but I am not overally concerned......sure it isn't great but he should improve as time goes on. He knows he has to work on his accuracy short and mid range......he has enough talent and a skill set to offset that negative to some a large degree.

How did this guy get past the 100 post minimum? Is it a bug in the new Huddle App?

As to the OP... No I am not concerned about his accuracy. You cannot compare Cam to VY or The Golden Calf of Bristol. 20 something teams passed on The Golden Calf of Bristol, if we passed on Cam, he wouldn't of made it out of the top 5. Vince Young is just Vince Young, a mentally unstable player who's internal problems caused his career to go sideways. Cam's a hard worker, and if he has a flaw in his passing game, I'm sure he will work his A$$ off to get it better. He has my support, and I am very excited to see him destroy the Giants on August 13th.

I agree with TRD. Cam's long ball looks to be pretty accurate and as the receivers get more comfortable running their routes, his accuracy should improve. Can't wait.

McNabb was in a completely different offense.

The bolded part is just outrageous.

Don't believe everything you hear from the media just watch his games. He's very accurate deep.

McNabb may have been in a different offense.....he was not even close to being considered an accurate passer though. The need for accuracy is probably more important for his offense. His other postive aspects help offset the fact he struggled making tons of throws that are generally required to run that offense.

Cam has a great deep ball. He has always had a good feel and placement on those throws. Sorry TRD, but there are postives to his game. It ain't all doom and gloom.

Accuracy will be improved as he gets more practices and games in. I'm not too worried, it'll come.
