Cam's performance

Recommended Posts

Honestly though it was pretty good all things considered. He can throw on any defense he wants to. Protection was not good. Pretty efficient day, the two picks were bad.

Is anyone REALLY worried about Cam Newton? I'm not. Now that the dust has settled a few hours... any really truly worried?

Wasnt impressed though the o line didnt help

yeah to be honest at this point Im concerned we might have a non franchise type franchise qb - we might be stuck in this gear for awhile and Im getting old.

He ignored his checkdowns at some bad points. He has to recognize that taking small chunks of yards can soften defenses up too.

I'm not worried but he needs to stop forcing things when plays go south and learn to not make a bad play worse. Beyond the olines poor play, he still seemed very hesitant at times and indecisive

DeAngelo could have gotten a first down when he had that first int

I was more dissapointed in the line than I was him.

He held the ball a couple times way too long, and there were also times when he left the pocket, when he didn't need too.

It's so easy to forget that he's only in the start of his 2nd year. The expectations are so high for him. He is going to be a good one, but like all QB's, he needs time in the pocket. He made a couple throws that were great. The two deep balls to Murphy (including the one that was broken up on a great play by barron, were great throws).

To play devil's advocate: Cam has struggled for a while now. Played poorly the 2nd half of the last regular season game last year. Played poorly in the Pro Bowl. Played poorly at worst and mediocre at best all preseason. And now played poorly to mediocre today.

Good news? That's just a game and a half of bad football when it matters. I'm just going to pull Week 4 out of my ass and say let's wait until Week 4 before we start saying he was overrated last year or is in a sophomore slump. He'll bounce back though of that I'm very confident.

Considering he threw for 300, his running back didnt pick up a first down all game, and his OL was non-existent...not bad.

Dude still needs to learn how to win tho...and that starts with feeling some urgency in the 4th instead of continuing to be lax.

Well which is it gonna be? Folks are yelling for wins, and we finished 4-2 in the last 6 of last season, yet Cam played poorly? He didn't have the crazy stats, but I would say he was more efficient.

What I find so troubling is, other teams are doing everything to protect their QB and give him time to get his job done but not this team. It's the attitude of We got Cam that seems to be the attitude. He can do it all. Why bother do our job and protect him so he can get good reads. Let's let every defender get to him and let's have the pocket break easily break down around so he won't have a chance to and have to throw on the first read or run for his life.

Considering the "performance" of the OL, I thought he played decent. The first INT should've been a pass interference, but it was a bad decision to throw into triple coverage. The second INT was another bad decision, but didn't really hurt us too bad since it was already 3rd and long and that INT basically equaled a 30 yard punt.

When the OL is struggling like they were today, Chud has to stop trying to be cute and call some quick hitter plays or some max protect plays to get us cranking. He called way too much slow developing bullshit today and the Bucs just kept pinning their ears back and bringing the heat.
