Perspective on Cam: Numbers compared to last year

56 posts in this topic

Nosuchthingasapanther is clearly not a fan of our QB. Whatever floats your boat.

what i'm not a fan of is people making statements that are not true because they don't want to get all butt hurt about their favorite player.

all i did was correct someone who said all of cam's numbers outside of passing yards were improving. that's the only reason why i mentioned interceptions.

We can argue about INT's all day. My question is are the coaches each game putting Cam and the offense in a position to win. We have an OC who sits up in the booth eating cheetohs and has no faith in our RB's when it counts. Why do we pay them all this money?

so now that it's obvious he is pacing to have more interceptions than last season...it's not his fault?

despite what position he is put in, he is ultimately responsible for what happens to that football when it is in his hands.

those intereptions can easily be incompletes if he simply throws them away.

if his name was jake delhomme, he'd be tied to a stake and set on fire.

what does this have to do with anything?

cam newton is tracking to produce more interceptions this season than he did last. period.

i'm sorry some of you find that hard to swallow, but find some way to choke it down.

Yeah everyone knows good QB's never throw any interceptions. Drew Brees and Eli Manning are right there in the running with Cam Newton. Michael Vick has 6 INT's and his team is 3-1. These QB's sure are terrible.

You know this isn't really a good thing, right?

Depends. Last year we played Arizona, Green Bay, Saints, and Jacksonville for our first 4 games. This year we played an improved Tampa Bay, Saints, Giants, and Falcons. 3 out of the 4 are playing better defense than what Cam faced last season.

typical huddle reaction of overacting and exaggerating when someone points out something that doesn't flow with the mindless masses.

i've never said anything about cam newton being a terrible qb. not in this thread or any thread...ever.

i couldn't care less about the amount of interceptions every other qb in the league has thrown. i hope they keep throwing them.

You don't have to get all defensive and throw out generalizations when someone disagrees with you.

That is incorrect. It would be correct if he was tracking to throw the same amount of attempts as last year but he is not. Currently he is tracking to throw the same amount of Int as last year. Period.

I know I am treading on thin ice for saying this but I am disappointed in his lack of improvement from last year..not so much with numbers but from a technical perspective. He still has trouble on short routes,throwing off the back of his foot...really basic fundamental stuff.

He's only in his second season.

Some seem to expect him to walk on water after last year. What about the rest of this team, where is the improvement there? Coaching has been lackluster in the basics, and it translates to the football field.

    • Funny, but the thing I noticed was that he considered himself a fullback---(The Panthers are one of the few teams that used a FB...) when he had never played.  I am sure the Panthers told him that, but I wondered if that was HIS intent. I think this is another "Swiss Army knife" player.  He is a FB with TE experience.  Can he catch?  Can he slide out to a wing or even line up as a TE?  Throw him into an offense that has McCaffrey (who can catch passes) and Samuel (who can run the ball) and these three players are capable of lining up as TE/RB/WR, FB/WR/WR, TE/RB/RB, etc. I am not suggesting that he is going to line up as a TE as Olsen does, but Brockel or even Dickson Hbacking could be in the cards for him.
    • He has fumbled one single time. I don't think he's a lock. However if Fozzie is expendable then of the current guys I suppose he makes it.
