A WHOLE PIE!

Treating Cam like an idiot and not progressing him into a pro style offense is going to ruin his career.

1) He is capable of grasping a pro offense. Its obvious he is a bright guy. Not taking away his security blanket of this college scheme will not force him to grow. Lets face it, he is already taking his lumps as a pro QB, the bad news is he isn't learning how to be an NFL QB in the process. If he is going to struggle, I would prefer he struggle and learn while in a pro system.

2) He is going to get hurt. Those shots he is taking every week are no joke. They don't just go away either. Week after week they add up and increase the chance for a serious injury. They wear you down.

At this point where the entire NFL has figured out how to stop the gimmick college offense that was successful last season, what is the point in sticking to it?

Can't agree more. The whole read option takes too long to develop and against fast defenses, their on you before you know it!

It's as if long-term planning for his success and maturation to a pro style was sacrificed for the "must win now" instant gratification of trickery and scheme that took the NFL by surprise last season but has already passed it's expiration date.

You're dead on.

he might be capable of it, but there has to be an issue with newton running a full time pro style offense...it would be the only legitimate reason for sticking with the madden attack offense.

Cam sealed his fate when we drafted him. We are the new Cleveland, a place players want to avoid at all costs.

I agree. I just wonder why(hindsight is 20/20 I realize) we didnt re-sign Shockey or go after another good TE. Olsen and Shockey were the security blankets last year, and Olsen is having a decent season, but I dont recall having this college offense much at all last season. Several things are going wrong this season, but I agree with Zod. Chud needs to take this bye week and do some adjusting. Teams know what we are trying to do now.

Its Hurney's fault we didn't bring Shockey back right?
