If you look around the league today you will see plenty of big names with multiple picks.

I think we may have a long season ahead of us...I see a sophomore slump before cam gets better.

Cam played very well considering the defense knew we had given up on the run. Those interceptions are expected when you're asked to pass the ball that many times. The defense was already expecting a pass for the entire second half and its amazing that he still went 23/33, passed for 300+ yards and got 10 points out of it. Blaming a player for throwing a couple of picks while being the only dimension of this one-dimensional offense is just silly. Not only should Cam be given a break, but he should be praised for having to go to work without a running game and still showing up. Blame Chud for the couple of mistakes Cam made because he's the one who gave up on the running game even though we were only at a 6 point deficit. We abandoned the run because of the 13 point lead, but not bringing back the run when only down 6 points is just ridiculous. It was not a well-called game, and I hope Chud can learn from this.

Am I the only one who didn't think the 1st INT was bad? Maybe I have shades on (but considering I've constantly argued against Cam this offseason for people who overhype him, which I can acknowledge even with as much as I love him) but the ball hit the receivers chest. It was not triple coverage like people keep saying. DB just made a great play on the ball, led to a tipped ball, and Barber picks it off. It only looked like triple coverage because DBs broke on the ball quickly as soon as it was tipped. Just one of those things that happen.

I thought Newton looked terrific. 2nd interception was terrible but all in all, he is FAR from one of our worries. Or at least he should be.

Cams first pick hit lafell in the hands.

His second was a combination of him and the oline. It was not a great read, but the throw would have at least given smith a chance if cam had adequate room to step up.

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.

Pretty much this

    • No doubt, He had an amazing game against a pretty crappy O-Line.  Give him his props for that.  I would have loved to see him get MVP.   Have you ever heard of Timmy Smith?  Super Bowl MVP running back for the Washington Redskins.   He played the game of his life in the game of his life.  And was out of football a year or two later.  Ealy, rookie year all performance was a rookie expectations.  2nd year expect some improvement and outside the Super Bowl he was consistently inconsistent.  3rd year proof in the making he had hit his ceiling.  "The roof is the ceiling" or "the ceiling is the roof" or something like that. Sporadic player at best.   I am not in belief that Billicheat is some great guru that turns mortals into gods.  He'll be about the same as he was with us.   Mediocre at best with one or two games to think he is about to breakout.
    • Put up or shut up Zimmerman boy
    • McCaffery is significantly quicker in the other agility drills plus edges him out in vertical and broad jumps. He's more explosive and been more productive. The analysis on NFL prospect page says Samuel is stiff and that is made evident by not being as quick in the drills that matter.
