"We know he's a great dual-threat quarterback, but once we bottle it up and frustrate him, we know he's going to tank a little bit," Seahawks safety Earl Thomas told the Associated Press about Newton. "We were able to do that today."

That headline irritated me when I read it... they're trying to make it a bigger story than it is. When you read the entire quote, the guy is talking more about the Seahawks causing Cam to tank rather than Cam causing Cam to tank, like the headline wants you to believe.

Saw that earlier on ESPN. It wasn't an insult, it's the same with any QB. Why does Brady have such a hard time against the Giants? Because they get in his face.

Thomas said he's a great QB both running and passing, but if they got to him, he'd start getting down and it would affect his performance. That's what they did. Thank Chud for not making any adjustments and not using a REAL running game and getting him quick passes to set up a rhythm and get the offense moving.

It's all true. Cam gets frustrated quick, and gets right off of his game.

What would you guys say to this.. Cam to the Bills for Dareus, Stevie Johnson and their 1st and 2nd rounder? Yay or nay? Their QB is garbage and they liked Cam going into the draft. Id make that trade. Lets see. They will probably have a top 7 pick and we would have a top 5 pick. We would get Dareus, Johnson plus we could draft Eric Reid and Star Lotulelei in the 1st round and a QB in the 2nd round.

Why would you EVER trade your franchise QB once you find one?

That is unless you're an idiot and don't believe we have a franchise QB.

I'd probably say:

Cam still needs to improve his mentality and decision making but he is one of many reasons from top to bottom within this organization we are losing and the people we have around him are clearly not helping him the right way right now.

Why exactly? Where is the logic that says having Eric Reid, Star Lotu, Stevie Johnson and Marcel Dareus would not make us a netter team? I know this is near impossible and wont happen but id take that trade in a heartbeat. This isnt the NBA where one superstar player is required to be a contender

How about we trade you to Cleveland for one of the dog pound fans. They would support the team thru think and thin. Plus won't ask stupid question like "what if we could trade Cam".

I would love Chud to open up this offense. I would love to see Stewart and Williams in the backfield half the game. We are paying them big money and they need to be on the field.
