His running ability is beyond average, yet this isn't college. Everyone is faster and smarter. In college, Cam broke off 50+ yard touchdowns with ease. Yet in the pros, that is not the case. (He only had one of those last year against the Bucs) Cam shouldn't depend on his running at all as a main weapon. He should consider it as a trump card. This offense we are currently running, considers Cam's ability to run as a main weapon. So it's no wonder that there will be times where we get straight smack down. If you ask me was I surprised by the Giants beatdown, I would tell you I wasn't shocked. (Just really mad)
The day Newton learns to run the full pro offense, that is the day he will be really dangerous.
It's all about keeping the defense on their heels, did Cam just not have a 40 yard run against the saints? No one expects him to go 50 yards plus, if team wanted a non-athletic pocket passer, that can't evade pressure then they would have stayed with Clausen.
