Schiano and the Bucs will try to 'limit' Cam Newton.

Recommended Posts



Is he serious when he said he is used to seeing this coming from college? Sure there have been some athletic QBs in college that can run around. But NOTHING he has ever seen has been any where near what Cam is. Cam is on a whole different planet. There has never been another QB like Cam. He is impossible to prepare for because he can do it all. Can't wait to see Cam bowl over Mark Barron.

I wish we still had Hoov back there to block.

EDIT: as well as create advantageous schemes in the backfield to confuse defenses.

I think Tolbert is as good of blocker as Hoover and he definitely gives us the ability to be more creative and confuse the defense more so than Hoover could...

He provides a lot more than Hoover.

Panther's fans really need to learn how to let go of players. God they get too emotionally attached to players that they are still wanted them after 3 years of them not being on the team. Even when what we have currently is better. Move on people.

Spying Cam is pointless.

Smart teams IMO will play coverage. Ask him to make safe and smart throws over and over.

Bring heat? Playground Cam comes out...

I expect the Bucs to deal with the spread option stuff better than a lot of teams. College coach. Use to dealing with it most Saturdays

I'm sure Chud will have a field day calling run plays that match Cam, Stew, DWill, and Tolbert up against Buc LBs. We've all seen what happens when Buc LBs try to take down our guys, they get fuging trucked or burned. We should be able to get the matchups we want in the running game, and force the Bucs to move a safety down to try and stop the bleeding. No more pre-season "don't put Cam in danger" plays. Get ready to see Cam with the ball in his hands on options flanked by guys like DWill. When it's Cam versus a Buc LB, the result is pretty easy to predict. I've never seen a team run the option as well as the Panthers, and it starts with Cam.

If I'm the Bucs DC, I'm looking at Silatolu and Kalil as the pass blocking weak spot on our O-line. Kalil is not a good pass blocker, and he needs to rely on the OGs next to him for help in pass blocking. Silatolu is still learing the position and makes rookie mistakes. Attack the center of the O-line with blitzes on passing downs, and that should result in a breakdown of our passing offense to a certain degree. But as far as our running game is concerned, it comes down to tackling, and I like our odds against their run defense.

I know I jumped in on this to respond. But dude, if you actually bleive this, ...

Hoov was great at what he did, but Tolbert adds so much more to the position.

You're right. I have been weeping and sobbing over the disconnection between some guy I don't know and the football team I root for.

I was just saying: the more mismatch the better.

I know I'm no football genius or anything, but honestly, I try to think like a DC and figure out how to stop the Panthers offense and it gives me a headache. If you focus on one aspect, you're gonna get gashed by another. Then there's Cam, whose proven capabilities act as a force multiplier that you absolutely MUST account for. I really think the best anyone can hope to do is limit the damage as much as possible, and rely on their own offense to pace us in points. But the trouble is that this should be a much better defense than the one they saw last year. If it's even moderately better, then I don't see that happening very often.

Cam adds another dimension to the offense, but I love hearing about teams that are only trying to stop him, like we don't have the best RB tandem to beat them into the ground, or a nice trio of WR and TE to tear them up with. It's not like when we used TD to specifically spy Vick, because Cam can actually throw it too.
