Cam Newton a product of his system?

That year CLE ran the ball much more with Jamal Lewis, there were no QB Powers O's, Options, etc. This is a new offense with a carry over in philosophy regarding the vertical stretch. Cam is what makes this offense go because it's built around his skill set.
If Anderson were to start I do not think we'd see the same production, Kurt Warner was very successful in the ARi offense, insert Anderson under the same OC...and he lost his job to the rookie Skelton.

Lets not forget Derek Anderson had a pro bowl year under chud...So unlike Indy, I feel if Cam went down we would have little to no drop off in the passing game... (rushing would obviously take a hit) I feel the coaching staff feels the same and that is why Anderson got a 5 year deal...The offense is built solely around a strong arm. Yes it does require accuracy but for the most part it's about stretching the field. Cam Newton is amazing don't get me wrong, but I feel if he went any where else we wouldn't be comparing him to the MJ of the NFL. Chud deserves a deal for the ages for the way he turned this O around. It's plug and play for years to come Panther's fans enjoy!
This same argument was made about jeff davidson in 08 after he turned our offense around. The problem is it was for one season. Let him prove himself for more than a year.
