Good write up bro. Offense sounds like it be super dangerous this year with Tolbert in the mix now. Replacement refs!! Smh!! 11 men on the field and called for 12 on the field. WTF!!. Screw these replacement refs. NFL needs to strike a deal with the real refs soon or alot of players will end up getting hurt because of this during the regular season. This makes no sense what so ever.

I know it sounds like over the top hyperbole, but if Cam Newton takes care of the football we will be virtually unstoppable on offense. My fear is that it is going to be a lot like Brett Favre these first few years where we are going to have to live with some turnovers but also be full of explosive scoring plays. That isn't the worst thing in the world and in 2 or 3 seasons he will be absolutely ridiculous at QB and in my opinion one of the 5 best in the NFL.

I am just afraid that people are expecting too big a leap from year 1 to year 2 when in reality it may be more of the same as last year (which, by the way, was a Pro-Bowl season so.... I'll take it.)

The one thing I can say about that is they had him work on checking down in 7 on 7. The one thing I fear may be uncorrectable is his overthrown passes.

I'm only going on what i saw the first two days of practice and last season, but in my opinion a lot of the overthrown passes are a result of him still not understanding when he need to put some touch on the ball in certain situations. He tries to throw darts 35 yards down field and put too much mustard on it and over shoots the receivers.

He may never be perfect on those throws but he will learn eventually when to take those chances and when not to, and he will also learn when to zip it and when to take a little off and be more accurate.

In the long term it doesn't worry me very much, but in the short term it could lead to another middle to high teen INT season.

But no matter what happens this season he is going to be even more amazing 3 seasons from now.

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
