I think Cam will be fine (but still a rookie). Our OL is supposed to be 1 of the best in the league & they have looked terrible. Sadly, I am using the word terrible a lot lately...the worst part is that I am correct in saying so.

Kalil just signs a huge extension then gets pushed around by a non-elite DT during the Bengals game.

They have the talent to become a very good lone, but I think Rivera needs to use the run game more. If team stop teeing off on the QB, the OL can gel. I know it's pre-season, but if you wnat to get QB-WR timing down, don't do it to the detriment of the element of suprise to the defenses, it make the DLs just bull rush.

Its a shame that we can't bring in a veteran to come in for Cam to watch and learn

While I acknowledge that a veteran would have a lot to learn from Cam, we have more important positions to worry about than the back-up QB.

Cam is ready to start, take his lumps, and learn on the field.

Is he ready to be playing at the caliber a team needs out of there starter? No, no rookie is......some teams just hide it better when there OL and running game is doing what it should. Carolina has the talent when healthy for them to do what is needed.

Go Cam. If you can't be excited for a kid with his potential to start the learning process.......how can you be football fan. You can't just expect to watch a playoff team year in and year out. All teams go through periods of taking lumps. This is what we signed up for when we drafted him.....gotta go through the process.

I will 'try' to give Rivera the benefit of the doubt, but...with him being pass happy & going away from an effective run game (effective at times), he allows the defenses to tee-off & has to try to beat them with precise throws; at this time he is not that accurate, but think he will be fine.

I am concerned about Rivera's understanding of how important it is to get the D on their heals before putting Cam in that position. If it trial by fire, then Rivera has not seen the usu. outcome of doing that to rookie QBs.
