Cam's accuracy

519 posts in this topic

Isn't it crazy how "fans" supported Clausen whether they liked the pick or not last year before he played? Yet, Cam isn't given that same treatment. It's weird that people who are supposed to be "fans" of our team are pie'ing and swag'ing each other for trashing a guy who's supposed to be our franchise QB and could turn us into a contender year in and year out.

After living through all of our QB issues since the franchise's inception, I never thought I would see the day where our "fans" would hope for and revel in the failure of a QB we chose with the #1 overall pick.

Keep starting your trolling pissing contests in threads to demean him, by all means... Because if you care about this team, you're demeaning it too, because THE GUY IS A ROOKIE AND HASN'T EVEN TAKEN A SNAP YET... But, you're trashing him? Damn, Clausen didn't even get this last year...

For those of you doing this, you're pathetic. This sh*t is just getting old and unbearable to read.

Now, you can leave this thread and look for the next Cam thread to troll in.

They did not chose Cam as the first pick, "we" did not pick Cam as the first pick. The Panthers administration did, and while they see something in Cam, the people who are trashing Cam hasn't. And they are entitled to their opinion. Personally I had Locker and possibly Gabbert over Cam but understood why they drafted him. Anyways, how is it pathetic for people to have their opinions?

I think his point is people cheerleading Cam's struggles because they are chomping at the bit to say I told you so.

Oh, well, that's pretty silly. But I could see why they would be more sensitive to Cam's failures and would point them out more then major supports of Cam, who would overlook one or two of his faults.

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.

Negatives... Plays in the spread offense, taking the bulk of his snaps from the shotgun... Tends to side-arm his passes going deep...Lacks accuracy and touch on his long throws... Seems more comfortable in the short/intermediate passing attack...Does not possess the ideal height you look for in a pro passer, though his ability to scan the field helps him compensate in this area...Will improvise and run when the passing lanes are clogged, but tends to run through defenders rather than trying to avoid them to prevent unnecessary punishment.

That was the scouting report on Drew Bress going into the 2001 draft. Your argument is invalid.

This is camp...Cam will have shining moments that send a message to Jimmy to get with it or this rookie will be the starter. Jimmy, if he finds motivation, will have his shining moments during camp that will show Cam the starting job is not a gift and needs to be earned with progress and confidence, eventually experience that will be valuable to both guys.

Bottom line - two QB's who will be better because of it.

That might be the most uneducated, unintelligent and completely wrong post yet. Thanks for playing and go brush up on your football history!

why...please enlighten me. Vick's accuracy wasn't great at the start of his NFL career, but I admitted I was wrong there. What else is wrong with this post. I'm asking a question. I'm aware QBs can marginally improve accuracy in the NFL from what they had before. I think Cam needs more that marginal improvement as a passer. I just have serious doubts about Cam's ability to turn into a NFL championship caliber QB (which is what you expect when you draft a QB with the 1st overall pick). An important job of a QB is to throw the ball accurately in the right window at the right time, I have serious questions about whether or not Cam can develop enough to be that type of a QB on a consistent enough basis to be considered a great passer. At the NFL level, he's freakish athletic ability will be diminished somewhat compared to college and he'll have to rely on his accuracy in much tighter windows. Not to mention the offense he ran in college was closer to a high school playbook than NFL. For those dogging my post and saying Cam's accuracy has never been in question, I don't know what to say except we have a very different opinion of him. I see a slightly better Vince Young....that's not the worst thing in the world.
