- Hard to know what to expect from Cam bc of the lockout. But what hes done is unbelievable. Great work ethic, preparation, leadership ability. For a young guy he's really amazing

-Coach Chud/Rivera did a great job tweaking the system for the players. Great oline & continuity, blitz protection has been good. Lots of good pieces around.

-Great relationship w/ Shockey, loves working with him and they work very well together.

-No hard feelings left from being traded. Didn't really sit well at first, but knew he had a fresh start here. Great energy in Carolina and in the locker room. He's excited to be part of the team

we all knew cam's physical attributes, we were all impressed by mental approach - preparation, ability to see the whole field, leadership qualities

chud has done a good job tweaking philosophy based on our personnel

o-line has been great for a long time in carolina and has obviously helped cam

lots of good pieces and this alleviates some pressure

said it's been a great relationship with shockey especially because they play the same snaps most of the time with two TEs and going five wide, great to have each other around to learn from and be able to pick him brain

bruschi said "i'm trying to wrap my mind around why a team would let you go." olsen said he's beyond that, thought he put in four good years, and while it doesn't sit well getting released he was excited about the fresh start in carolina

great atmosphere in carolina and great atmosphere in the locker room. it's exciting to be here.

and that's it. good note to end on.

Swag and pi for u as well. I always try to recognize people who actually post news and articles. It's not always reciprocated, but it won't stop me from rewarding those who use this site as it was intended.

I really think the future captains for this team on offense are Newton and Olsen. As soon as Smith and Gross move on those will be the two guys that will be chosen for the offense.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
