Rivera has flat out said he plans to run Cam this year...just like he did last season. Cam should get around 7 runs per game....a little more or less will be dictated by how the games unfold.
6 rushes was the smallest number of attempts Cam had in a game in 2011.
You don't have Cam Newton and not run him. It is part of his game. Against NYG you don't won't game sitting in a pocket trying to let a lot develop downfield. DL is too good. They will read option them and try to slow the rush.....and I think his QB scrambles could be higher than his called runs this week. Should be IMO. He needs to take yards given if his throw isn't there.....not hold the ball. Can get away with that against some DLs
I was looking for stats like this....thanks for finding. My question now is how many of those were by design or did the play break down? I think we could or at least should all agree that Sunday was by far the most designed running plays Newton performed and I dont mean the read option which there was also more of that than usual. I dont want him running that much until the playoffs then he can run as much as he wants
