...Cam needs to be Captain Crunchtime. Meaning, he performs his best in the 4th quarter with the game on the line. There were situations in 2011 where Cam had the ball in his hands at the end of the game with a chance to win or tie, and came up short.

Will someone please make me a picture of Cam Newton with Captain Crunch's uniform on him, in the spirit that he will be Captain Crunchtime in 2012?

Cam was a rookie last year trying to overcome one of the worst defenses in the league.

We led late in plenty of our losses, and would have looked a lot better in the later stages of games if the D did anything at all.

He'll be fine.

The last thing i'm worried about is his ability to close. He's got a few trophy's that addresses thise concerns.

Not worried about Cam in this regard... see the Iron Bowl.

He does need to evolve some @ the NFL level (just as any second year player does) but I also think our play calling needs to evolve to put him in better position as a second year player to close out games.

No need to worry he can handle the pressure!

lol this isn't college and the OP is right. He needs to step up in the 4th quarter. John Elway isn't a legend because he throw for a million yards no he's a legend because he won ball games. Many in the clutch.

even when he did it.....the refs would call a phantom holding call and Mare would miss an easy chip shot.

I think if we are going to win....the D and ST simply have to not be HUGE liabilities. Offense can score. That will make us a postseason team. But yeah, to be a good postseason team Cam will need to play big in big moments (but that is Cam what has always been known for....playing better the bigger the stage).
