National Cam haters haven't watch Panthers

Did you not see the pocket he was in? If he can't complete that 5 yard pass with no pressure on him and no defenders near the WR, he doesn't deserve to put on an NFL uniform.

You want him to be a runner because you know he's not an NFL passer.

He's a true run first QB no matter how much people argue it and it's not a recipe for success. That's all.

TRD is a Dolphins fan, why are people arguing with him about our QB?

I'm a Jets and Gaints fan, but u don't seem me trying to spin everything ur top QBs do into something negative to make me feel better about them. I happen to love Mark Sanchez but I also love Cam, Vick, Aaron Rodgers and a few other QBs and root on them and their team. As long as the Jets are playing them, thou...:D

What TRD is showing is that you can put a negative spin on anything in order to cause a discussion. It seems more about TRD and Cam is just the vessel he uses to get the attention.

So he got 19 running and we would have gotten at least 19 throwing, considering Cam didn't' do anything special with his run yet he had to take an extra hit doing it.

What was the upside to him running?

how would we have gotten 19 when smith was lead blocking?

Smith's block MAAAAYBE got him an extra yard, if that.

Worth it?

Smith was happy, Cam was happy, why can't you be happy?

I agree with this.

Anybody that has watched Newton run and not been impressed has a much higher benchmark than any Defensive Coordinator in the NFL...

Not that I didn't know he could run, but wow. Imagine when they actually design plays for him to run. If he can develop into a decent passer, then he is totally worth the #1 pick.

I am not being a total homer. He is going to take at least a year to develop into a quality pocket passer, maybe more. But his dynamic running ability gives him a higher long-term ceiling than almost any QB in the league.

Teams will respect his running ability or suffer. And that will make his transition as a passer easier. Cam is not going to get knocked-out after one hit a la Vick. He is going to have to learn to slide some, but we are talking a 6'5" 250 lb guy who can run like a gazelle.

Why did the Eagles take a chance on Vick after his incarceration? It certainly wasn't b/c he was a proven pocket passer. He has certainly gotten better since his ATL days, but Vick's ability to run still scares Defensive Coordinators the most, b/c the defense can cover well and still get gashed for 20+ yards. It's demoralizing.

We've been there in the past against Vick. Hopefully Newton will bring that same ability. Newton, as Rivera has pointed out, is not a savior, but he does represent an opportunity for the Panthers to have a dynamic presence at QB and a formidible offense for years to come once he develops.

TheRealDeal obviously knows more about football than you, me, or anyone in the Panthers organization.

lol...you are only acknowledging the impact of what Smith did at the point of contact. Smith's role as a blocker and impact started much sooner than when he made impact with a Steeler.

I have a big picture view and want what's best for the Panthers for 10-15 years.

I'm not blinded by short term "excitement"

I want a proven winner that will compete year in and year out, not one drive here and there that give me false hope.

That to me is a simple play, simple read, etc and he chose to run. I don't know how hard it is or if it's even possible to break that habit but it needs to be done.
