DAMN YOU CAM NEWTON!! (for allowing the lions to score 7 TDs)

174 posts in this topic

Honestly, if u an avid football watcher, u would know that this is the time where the defense NEED to step up their game if they haven't already. This time last year, it was GB defense that took the team all the way to the SuperBowl not their offense because no one knew how Rodgers was going to play after his return from his injury. Two defensively strong teams played in the SB this year.

Noticed the Bills have started to regress? The offense was kicking butt in the beginning of the season.

Do you think our defensive talent could step up in comparison to the Packers d talent of last year ? Good God, give me a call. I need some of the peyote you are ingesting.

Most of us who wanted to start Matt Moore weren't thinking to do it to tank to get andrew luck at all. I can only speak for the handful of people who didn't want to go QB first but wanted to go D instead... I was hoping our defense would be good enough with good drafting and FA pickups, and with a new system, Moore could win us some games. I was thinking if we still needed a QB next year, and if we ended up in position to draft one, we could get a guy next year (didn't expect it'd be Luck tho), but that was because I didn't think Cam was anywhere close to as good as he actually is. I readily admit I was wrong.

I'm glad we drafted Cam. I have no idea how it would have turned out had we gone "with my plan" or whatever, but I'm very happy with what he's done and what he can bring to this team in the future. I still wish we'd done more to help this defense than what we did, but they couldn't have predicted the injuries to our LBs.

I'm frustrated at losses this year because I expected our problem to be offense, not defense, if we started a rookie QB. But it's been defense... and that's frustrating after having gone so many seasons with at least an average D here.

The defense looked better because we were playing Foxball.

It wasn't just that. The defense was playing better... possibly because it wasn't injured, sure, but it was playing better.

Cam threw 4 picks today and missed open receiver time after time after time. Didn't exactly do his part.

He has regressed, and I'm very, very concerned.

1-He's a rookie

2-Teams adjust and game plan

3-He would benefit from a consistent running game to take pressure off him

Lets not freak out here. How about his ability to escape and make plays with his feet. He needs a full off season to develop his passing. It will come.

Like Will Ferrell in Old School said..

"We gotta keep our composure!!!"

11td and 14ints? newton should flash that #1 less in the endzone and stop turning the ball over.

So what QB on our roster last year (or this year) or what QB available in the draft do you think would have us winning games...or even being competitive....

It would be easier if people just pretended the defense wasn't on the field, that way they wouldn't be let down when the other team scores and gets endless amounts of first downs.

That's what I do now anyway.

Sure, they helped...

but keep in mind that only 1 TD came after an interception, and that Cam tied the game at 35 when he'd thrown a total of two interceptions. The defense gave that tie up, then his next 2 INTs came.

Cam did not play well, Cam was part of our loss, but defense really let us down today.

People who listen to Mav (except pre-draft ;)) will be wiser people.

Truth is that at least 3/4's of Cam's INTs weren't his fault. And even with the INTs he did enough to win the game. We shouldn't even be talking about Newton right now. The defense got their ass handed to them and Rivera and McDermott aren't cutting it. Chud also didn't help out with some of the calls he made today.
