Cam Newton isn't a pure pocket passer....his wheels a part of his game. It also is what makes him a mismatch the league has NEVER seen. He may be the greatest goaline threat in NFL history when all is said and done....
I would agree. Unless Newton has no other option accept to scramble for his life. The panthers should not risk him on doing stupid option plays. Cam goes down. Then our who season goes bye bye. We got more then enough firepower in the backfield now with Dwill, Stewart, and Tolbert. Use them this year. It would ok to use Cam in an option play once again. But beyond that it is risky his career every time. They need to use the RBs alot more this year.
Carolina should use the RBs more this year but that doesn't mean you remove Cam from the ground attack. He was one of the most efficient runners in all the NFL and easily the best in Carolina.
Take away Newton's legs this early in his career and you sabatoge his career. That doesn't mean you can't be smart with him....but his legs also help him in the pass game. Not just extending plays but setting up the deep stuff. He will never be a Peyton Manning type.
