Cam's run wasn't spectacular, he jogged 19 yards.. by all means, a pass to Smitty would have been the best..

however, there wasn't a pocket for him to sit in before he ran. if so, it occurred right at the time he ran. the OLine hasn't proven he should have sat there. he saw 2 gaping holes open and ran, and had Stew not picked up a block we wouldn't even be having this conversation..

just my 2cents on both sides of the argument..

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.


So was Vick for his ATL days, and they went to the NFC Championship game before he could throw it in the ocean.

Newton is going to have to develop into a quality passer to be an elite QB, but he doesn't have to be Payton Manning. Vick still doesn't make the most accurate throws all the time or the best decisions, but his passing ability combined with his dynamic running ability still put him in the MVP discussion.

Vick is a top 1 runner and a top 20 (maybe) passer. At this point in his career. Net is he is considered a top 10 (maybe top 5 QB).

@ Bleys, But pockets "develop" they don't just show up. He didn't give it any time to develop, which goes back to him being run first. The front 5 held up and Stew came over perfectly.

The pocket was there, Cam rushed it.

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


You might not even be alive in 10-15 years. There is no such thing as the future there is only now.

But I still agree with the sentiment you are expressing.

You have to agree, it's right.

If there is only now, then we should protest that the FO gave us another shitty product to pay for, but we don't because we wait for the future.

Like I said in another thread, I don't care about results this year, I want him to improve things that's going to make him a sustainable NFL success, not a flash in the pan.

For a guy "jogging" 19 yards, he sure gets up the field in a hurry. Who else does that besides Vick? The percentage of 15+ yard runs for QB's is ver low.

And I mean that seriously without sacasm. Most QB's that can get 5-10 yards, it's considered a great run (like Aaron Rodgers) compared to the guys that are pretty much immobile.

Now, obviously, Cam Newton is nowhere in Rodgers league right now, and a QB can not be 100% effective strictly looking to run, but Cam's running ability does add an element to his game that shouldn't be trivialized.

Now, I certainly would agree that a 10 yard run vs a 25 yard pass is not equal, but a 19 yard run vs a 19 yard catch, especially given Cam's size, is equal if not better.

Cam is going to get more comfortable in the pocket over time, but since he's being thrown to the wolves, in the interim, it's much better to take the 19 yards when it's there vs. waiting in the pocker to long risking a sack or wasted play

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

Worth it?


without a lead blocker, probably 5 yards less.

I care about results myself and that drive resulted in a TD. I don't care if Cam ran, passed, or moonwalked it was a great drive and Cam deserves credit for that.

He made the play on 3rd and long. Who gives a fug how he did it?

If his main problem is he is breaking off 20 yard runs to the delight of Steve Smith instead of throwing it he is going to be a great QB.

TRD just imagine how good he will be when he does get better with experience. You just made me feel even better about Cam and his potential to be great.

So thanks buddy :thumbsup:

No it isn't.

It's a perspective and while a seemingly valid one it is not something that can either be right or wrong.

Also there is no debating that there is only the now. Also, I'm pissed that I'm probably not going to watch the quality of football I'd like to see this next season. That anger is tempered by hope for the future but it doesn't override it because the future may never exist.

So that's nice that you feel so right and everything but there is no right and wrong and your big picture view may be the wrong choice in the end. Of course we have to wait until we can employ hindsight to validate that.

All that bullpoo aside I agree with the 10-15 year plan but I also believe in winning continuously throughout that range of time. Probably shouldn't ever feed your ego with agreement but meh that's like throwing another straw in a barn.

I aim to please.

So should I expect these great results every drive now and be upset if he doesn't deliver?

The FO disagrees.

I've been told they are always right.

Winning doesn't matter right now.

Well you just said you care about results and not how he gets them, so you don't care if he improves as long as we get points I'm guessing.

So I'm taking your approach and saying fug the future, fug improvement, give me exciting runs noooooooooooooooooow!

I only want results this season, not improvement.

Give me results or give me death.
