It bothers me that the guy has been handed this job since day one and hasn't had to fight for a spot just like everyone else on the roster. This guy needs to know he can lose his job if he doesn't perform. This organization up to this point hasn't been serious about challenging him in that way.

I know what his supporters say....it's the play calling, he hasn't had time in the pocket, there's no one opposite Steve Smith...but I digress.

Cam hasn't helped this offensive line at all. He takes to long progressing through his reads, he doesn't hot route on the blitz well, his footwork and indecisiveness in the pocket causes the passing lanes to close. Sometimes it looks like he doesn't know whether to run or pass and by the time he decides he's too late. His ball security in the clutch is atrocious. If he protects the ball better we win the last three games.

I really want the new FO to fix this, whether that's grabbing an established vet in the offseason or drafting a guy early. He needs to feel the pressure to reach his potential and you do that in any business through the realm of competition.

lol....

Cam just needs a team and coaching staff around him. Nothing more. Carolina has implemented the textbook blueprint for what you don't do to a young QB.

Cam surprisingly has had us in almost every game of his career despite it.

We should cut him. He'd learn then.

He needs a lot more than that.

I didn't say cut the guy, I said bring in someone who can play and let them duke it out in training camp next year.....let the best man win.

One... screw the read option unless you're playing my Gamecocks then it works. Derek Anderson and Clausen aren't even here to provide competition. Bring in some guys that can play, and put him on the hot seat. What so unreasonable about that?

That makes sense.

hey let's invest and bring in competition to compete against the best player on our team. As young and inexperienced as Cam is....and as much as he has to learn....he IS the best player.

What we need is better lineman, WRs, TEs, S, DTs, etc. Not a better backup QB.

Isn't ESPN the network that fabricated the pay for play scandal while Cam was at Auburn?

Am I the only one who finds it interesting that their entire network, and mainly their network alone, is absolutely hellbent on trying to force the bust label on Cam?

Trying to get some dignity back?


Sorry. Didn't think that was threadworthy and needed to put it somewhere, and since his thread isn't going anywhere, it seemed like a nice spot.
