This Coaching Staff is Babying Newton

87 posts in this topic

Somebody has to tell it like it is. They need to let this guy run a full pro offense. Let him take his lumps and grow as a QB. Let running be his last option, not one of the first. All these option plays and designed runs makes me sick. Does it work sometimes, yeah. However you see what happens when we go against a real defense. We get shut down. I'm okay with using them every blue moon, but if I want to see them as our main offense, I'll look at college football. If I want to see a wishbone offense, I'll go look at Georgia Tech. This is the NFL, where every play is dissected a billion times over by grown men.

Let this guy run the full offense, let him run it like Anderson would run it. Let him identify coverage and call plays. Let him do the whole bit. Or else he will be like Vick, taking 10+ years learning how to be a QB. And by then, he will be playing for another team.

What's crazy is I don't remember it being like this last year

How did we take a step back?

Edit - far as the read option is concerned. Maybe lack of Shockey?

They been babying him last year .

Let him do everything.

Never told him to quit with the towel over the head. Never try to get him to look over plays at the sideline. That's why when he goes over to a press conference with the creepy eyes thingy, this place goes crazy.

Ok, I've now seen posts supporting Cam saying the staff is making things too complicated for him and now too simple for him. Folks need to decide how the coaches are failing Newton so we can properly blame them.

I agree the teams we have beaten we would have beaten with out all this gimicky stuff.The teams we have been beaten by we would have stood a much better chance in running a more traditional O that still utilizes Cam size and athletisism without the "zone read" every run and all that..... on a semi unrelated note i think if we are going to run this stuff if d-will is in he is much better suited for the run option pitch and the zone read.

Until we fix our OL, I have a different idea than most. Right now we are getting overpowered up front, I have talked about it before, but our OL is not where we need it to be yet to run a Coryell style O. On top of that Newton is not experienced enough to pick apart coverages, and audible at the line with good results.

Line them up in pro set and stop with the read option.

For a few plays early in the game have Cam look at his first option, and either fire or look to dump off. If dump is covered, tuck the ball and run.

Don't wait for it to open up, don't wait for 2nd or 3rd option, just 1st, dump off, take off.

Not every play just a few in the first quarter to back the D down a bit and then make him stay in the pocket.

Right now the only players that I trust in pass pro for blocking are Gross, Kalil, Stew, and Tolbert. Not sure yet that the rest can handle waiting 2.5 seconds for our WR's to break free.

if the OL isn't doing it's job well, the last place cam needs to be is under center.

dude needs to be running most everything out of the shotgun or pistol.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
