Didn't hear that. Must be a different instance.

It doesnt hurt me a bit.

Cam's ego is starting to go out of control.

Its time Smitty put him on a reality check.

Smitty will never win a Super Bowl bc of poor decision on JR part.

For a change I agree with you....

The play were he tried to yank the ball back from Dwill was ridiculous, if we are ever gonna be truly great he needs to stop with the "Me First" attitude... this is a team sport.

You're obviously not very familiar with the read option. The entire point is to stick it in the RB's gut, read the defensive end, and then either pull the ball back or continue with the handoff. Tuck (or Osi, not sure which) played it perfectly so Cam couldn't get a read on him until it was too late. Deangelo made a good cut to get around the DE, but Cam actually should have kept it. That's what he was trying to do.

I'm very familiar with it, maybe you are bind but last I checked his actions would have been to little to late, all he did was increase the chances of both of them losing the ball, we need to bring back the damn I formation any good defense will have no problem stopping the read option it is a college level scheme that will not work in the NFL long term.

Don't credit that to a "me me me" attitude though. The man was trying to make a play. I will agree that it was too late and was probably a bad decision. The DE just held containment perfectly on both of them until the last second. I think it can work, but just not as the primary running formation. Mixed in, with a QB like Cam, it can be deadly.

Smitty deserves a better team. HOF talent and he'll be forgotten in 8 years.

We haven't forgotten Moose, why would we forget Smith. Smith is the best WR the Panthers has ever had, he won't be forgotten but he is HOF bound...

Not by us, by NFL fans. He's also not HOF bound, sadly.

Mixed in yes it can work, as our primary running play being used 10-15 times per game it will fail, especially when you are playing a defensive line like the Giants.

Also it sure didn't help starting Gary Williams at RT he was over matched all day long... mental lapses or not we should have had Campbell playing RT last night he could have at least matched up athletically with them, am I the only one who noticed Williams arms are far to short to play tackle.

He's not HOF bound by you sadly, but he is by me. I guess we'll find out in time.
