Cam hasn't taken a step back

Opponents can study his strengths
Opponents can study his weaknesses
Opponents can study his tendencies
So lets stop this "cam is regressing" horse dung. Cam is not regressing. Despite defensive coordinators now game planning for him (by the way, who was the last Panthers QB a defense had to completely game plan around....I'll wait), Cam continues to put up the cheese and do more than enough to win games in this league (provided a Panthers defense that is actual NFL quality).
So the next time you hear about "Cam is regressing, Cam is losing it, etc" Just slap that idiot in the face and hope Pavlovian conditioning takes hold.

Only if you don't have much of a clue.
Twas a joke
Cam is experiencing a rookie speed bump. Most people won't admit this because he exceeded expectations so much that it was easy to forget he's still a rookie
And edit: you're pretty much right. I'll be concerned if we're still having problems countering a team's game plan for him a little more down the road this season.

He hasn't regressed. We're just playing better defenses than we have played all year. And yesterday we played the best pass defense we played all year long. We lucky we got 3 turnovers and Stafford stunk it up too early in the game or it would have been a lot worse.
But unfortunately he hasn't gotten any better either. Still can't win a close 4th quarter game under pressure. 1-8 and it just keeps on counting. Maybe against Indy next week.

"how can you regress if you are not a very good QB? I mean really? He has 2 wins...so what he has thrown for 2900 yds, 12 TD, and an NFL record 9 rushing TD's! Andy Dalton is so much better because he has won 6 games. I mean in the NFL, its all about W's, and this game comes down to the play of only man, the QB!, derppa derp derp..."

I think the real issue affecting Cam AND why he was so successful early on wasn't about Cam.. it was about Steve Smith.
Teams are controlling Smith which is showing where Cam really is. Without Smith carrying him at this point he's nothing special.

Defensive coordinators game plan for all quarterbacks. Not all throw 4 interceptions in a game.
Name an elite QB that hasn't thrown 4 picks at some point.
Name an elite QB that would not throw a pick against a loaded zone backfield and having to throw the ball 20+ yards because all hope is lost.
Honestly, I sometimes feel you try to come up with the worst posts possible.
