Cam's performance

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).

you guys need a few weeks worth of watching Cleveland Browns football... and have your cam taken away from you like a water supply... then you tell me what you think of him.

Browns fans I live around are ready to kill themselves

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.

    • I like the use of props like in that old MTV allstar game where there was like 2 additional baskets above the main hoop. Could be interesting.

    • It seems like every year around draft time, huddle math kicks into full effect.  Somehow by puck 8 the top 20 prospects will magically be gone. Always amazes me.  Unless you are trading up to 1 draft a Peppers or Cam franchise can't miss prospect I don't see why this team would trade up with a pick in the top 10.  Use last years slump to your advantage and build your core.  Get 2-3 starting caliber (not necessary starters on this team but starting caliber) NFL players and some depth guys.  I like Fournette but there are other guys that can fill a role on this team who will be available.  No need to throw the draft away. Just my opinion. 
    • Oh hell, make it 28 points. Boy, the failcons could have used that.
