Tuesday Night Camp Updates

Did Cam's attitude pick up at all or was he pretty subdued throughout practice?

Was it that bad? Hangover from the game or just this practice get him that way?

they are probably installing parts of the offense that are pretty different from what he ran at Auburn - that was the explanation for his down practice last week I think, he was having trouble with the offense a bit. Not surprising, he is only a rookie and he's got a lot of ground to cover.

Not practicing well as a rookie is a bad thing. That said, I think he is doing as expected and thing those with a Cam or bust agenda are making excuses for him. What they fail to realize is that for any player, especially a rookie, and even moreso for a !st overall pic QB, not practicing well and being known as a "gamer" is about the worst thing you could be.

I wish people thought before they posted.

You see, I've been a sports writer since 2003. Before that, radio. I was born into a radio fam, so I've had a rare look into the "agendas" of many in the media.

Your regulars: Gantt, Person, Reed...the beat guys...are genuinely good. You may not like their work, but they work hard.

For every one of them, you have dozens of hacks who literally (and I have seen this)...scan tweets from other sources, and put together their word secondhand.

It's a dying biz, sports journalism. Social is where it's evolving to, and honestly--love him/hate him--Florio is the best example of taking a simple blog, working his tail off, and building an enterprise.

It can happen, if you attack the stories with an honest perspective. You have to add value along the way--something the aforementioned either can't/won't.

As you will see on the site in the coming weeks, the P.O.D. will be considerable.

You guys rock, and thank you for the support.

Newton is a gamer when the lights come on he puts it all together which is why i don't read to much into his practices.

Peter North once told me... "You practice like you play"

If that was the case, David Carr should have been an allstar.

Ryan leaf looked good in practice. So did david carr and alex smith. Practice is what it is practice. You learn from your mistake and move on.

My #1 concern, re: Clausen in live action:

Too "synthetic"--not instinctive enough to make big plays in key spots. Arm not strong enough to capitalize on our speed at WR/TE.

and for Newton:

Footwook, footwork, footwork. Shula/Chud MUST get him to step into his throws with authority. In his prime, I never say anyone do this any better than Kurt Warner. Go back and look at some of his games in 1999, 2001, 2008. Cam needs to zone in on this, and make it better.

I like what Jimmy showed tonight, but remember, he had the luxury of the entire #1 crew with him, including a rejuvinated 89.
