What do you attribute to Cams shaky start today...

You could tell after the last game Cam was real upset. I think he was over thinking today.

Jacksonville dared us to run and we still didn't have a ton of success with it. They were dropping a ton into coverage, including two guys on smith the whole game.

I'm a huge Cam fan, I'll just say it, and be honest about it.

He was just off today. He will fix it.

The only two things that bug me so far is it seems like when it's a designed run play for him it's pretty obvious and always up the middle and that's on Chud. The other thing is when Cam runs, he should just run. This isn't the SEC, if you are going to run, then put the ball away and turn on the jets...you aren't going to stutter step too many people in the NFL.

He is an amazing athelete and I'm glad he's here.

Look at the thread title genious. It's asking what you think made Cam not look good. EVERYONE here is speculating. You don't know if he was having just a rookie moment or if his foot was really bothering him either.

Irony- insulting someone while misspeliing the word genius.

I don't know if the ankle was bothering him or not, but something seemed abnormally off. Hopefully he corrects it by next week :cam:

a rookie qb planting his foot with a recent minor ankle tweak on a slip and slide football field in torrential downpour

Stop making excuses for him.

It had nothing to do with his foot....it had nothing to do with the play calling...it had to do with the fact that he is a ROOKIE.

He had one of those days that a rookie has. He was throwing high and pressing too much in the game. It is going to happen.

Not really anything to worry about.

However, I am NOT HAPPY with the play calling.

It seems that Chud is getting too pass happy and completely abandoning the run game. We are NOT a balanced team and that puts way too much pressure on Cam's shoulders.

This WAS the game to work on the run game....and he was slinging the ball around in a damn monsoon.

It was like watching the Anti-Fox out there today. Problem is that abondoning the run game is nearly as bad and dangerous as Fox's abandoning of the passing game.

More Irony - calling someone out on misspelling while misspelling the word misspelling.

LOL did some Panthers fans bet on Jacksonville?

Even after a win all there is, is bickering back and forth.

I think Cam Newtons play today was attributed from the 4 interceptions he thrown last week. I think he was overthinking..Throwing the ball late of his back foot. just a little shell shocked. Things didn't work early for him...I thought he handle it well.. but i still saw that he wanted to make a big play just torn between taking the risk or being conservative.
