Didn't Legedu throw a pass to Cam that was nearly a TD last year?

I think it isn't something we should throw away, but our coaches use it at the wrong times.

Speaking of which, look at that

It would be nice to say what we know Rivera is thinking. Mike Wallace most likely will be available, it sure would be nice to have him on our team

If you look at the entire league in a 20 game window....

Carolina has 2 things thanks to their infant QB

1. Best rushing attack
2. Most explosive offense

Yet we need to be more traditional?

What we need to do is not worry about Cam. We need to worry about not giving him a D/ST NOW.

Newton's most dangerous years will be while is still a monster on the ground. The delay in giving him help will be costly. A 5 yr vet version I think will be more dangerous than a 10 yr version

I'd love to have him, but with the money he would command we could do a lot of good for our ailing defense.

Rivera is going to live and die with Cam.
Too bad he'll be gone soon while Cam still have a job.

The main problem is this college offense we run 50% of the time. Cam's a running threat whether you have those plays in there or not. So if the only reason we got them in there is to provide the threat of Cam running the ball, these plays are a major waste of time. They hurt more than they help.

I'm puzzled, Andrew Luck is pretty much a dual threat QB. He's not Cam, but he is close. I seen this guy lay out a couple of cats in college, and even forced a fumble while knocking a guy out. Yet I don't see the Colts running the bogus wildcat/read option plays. Why is that? You see this brings up an interesting question altogether. If Cam was white, would we be seeing these packages for 50% of our offensive playcalling? Or would we be running the full pro style offense, with these packages every blue moon to mix things up?

So...in the 20 games of the Newton era you deem the college offense that has given us the best ground attack and most explosive offense during that 20 game stretch.....is the problem.

I'll disagree and go defense and ST is the issue.

We didn't run this style of offense until late last year. Cam and the guys were playing fine and running fine in the pro style offense for the most part of last year. Yet you see what defenses do to this attack. At times we are shut down. We never were shut down at any point last year. The common denominator as to why we were shut down this year is the read option.

Only gets shut down when we play without a zone read RB.

I keep saying it and the games support it. Rivera supports it. Stewart is the key....if he isn't suited up the defensive lines have a different gameplan.

Read option isn't the issue, bc we are explosive and dominant with it. Issue is only running it as a core without Stewart. Nothing opens up bc defenses just pass rush every down. Stewart presents a different threat inside that makes teams actually read and react

35 pts while averaging 5 yards per carry? What did they shut down.

D and ST were utter poo against the Lions.....they have been the problem during the Newton era

Wait who am I thinking about then?

Ok, I got the Lions and Titans games mixed up.

We were shut down against the Titans last year.
