Cam's performance

wonder if Redskins would trade RG3 for Cam?

In a heartbeat I would say.

Honestly I think 30 other franchises would sign up for Cam.

Dude threw for over 300 yards and looks leagues better as a thrower of the football than where he was at. He made some bad decisions trying to make stuff happen when it wasn't there, but it ain't something that bothers me at this stage in his career.

Nah just a couple bad choices that wasnt helped by the line. Got a few lolz in the chat though when raleigh-panther said he wasnt sure cam was a QB....

I'm not sure.

He is a great athlete, no question.

Great QBs are not always great athletes.

Frankly, I"m not sure. If you are, and others are, well, great.

I was really in his camp when he was drafted, in his camp last year, heard a lot of things about him that i felt were ridiculous and still do.

However, today, I saw a guy that seemed to regress, stared down receivers, didn't do his check downs, hesitant and indecisive, threw the ball into not double but triple coverage, losing yardage

when he could've just thrown the ball away.

And stil more interceptions. This team is not good enough to overcome that.

Was this one game in the season, we'll see.

I thought he looked really good overall. The forced throws leading to interceptions are a concern. I feel bad that he has to put up with the lack of talent around him.

His ball placement today was elite on 90% of his throws.

23 for 33 for 303 yards passing. 1 TD and 2 INT's. One was a tipped ball the other was Forced.

Overall his performance was ok. Not his best but not his worst. The offensive line was no help at all this time around, he had almost no room, he was rattled and had a defender on him every other play. He also wasn't on the field very long. 22 minutes to be exact, the ball was kept from him by the Bucs O running so much and winding down the clock. That was the same strategy the Skins used on Drew but as you can see Brees still scored, a lot. Basic principle and formula. Keep Newton off the field, and make him turn over the ball in the limited amount of time he has will equal a win for the other team.

Josh freeman wasn't stellar, he was below pedastrian but he had no turnovers. Played perfectly. Lack of pass rush really helped him as well. His Running game actually got off to a good start. These aren't excuses. They are facts.

I wouldn't pin this loss on Newton at all.

Well, he had very little protection due to the poor O-line performance. But, I was concerned that he often did not step into his throws....leaning on his backfoot. Of course, he had Bucs hanging all over him which did not help. The pass protection is bad. The Panthers gave up to quickly on the run game, and this hurt Cam.

That throw that Barron swatted away we a beautiful pass with a near perfect defensive play

The INTs didn't bother me that bad because he was trying to make a play on 3rd and long. He could have thrown it away and we could have had a blocked punt and been worse off. His passing was right around 60% which is respectable under the circumstances. There was a few times I would have liked to see him take off with conviction when things broke down. He really struggled in the run and read option game which is very un-Cam-like.

Thats what I thought.

My wife deleted my DVR version of the game.... so I can't re-watch all his throws. I need the guy who made the youtube of all his throws last year to do it again for this game

You can thank a college and pro scouting department that gets it wrong way, way, way too often.

ETA: I don't mean they got it wrong with Cam--I mean they got it wrong by failing to pick guys who can really help him.
