Cam Newton needs real competition.

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.

So let me see if I am understanding you correctly. We just fired a GM for questionable contracts and tying up too much money in positions we already had quality players at. And now you want to spend the type of money it would take to bring in a plausible QB to over take Cam as a starter just so he has "competition".

To bring in someone who could plausibly over take Cam, would take a fortune at the QB position. I would rather spend that money on the cheaper positions of safety and DT where we actually need the help.

Once again a thread that makes me laugh when people overly criticize GMs.

We have scored 14 points or less in 4 of 6 games this year. The defense has had us in the game...Cam and the offense have not gotten it done.

Fact remains....in 4 of 6 games....not a single RB has rushed for more yards than Newton.

That is a staff putting it all on one very young man. That happens and teams typically get blown the f out. We have been in all but 1 game. I agree the D is playing well....but realsitcally we shouldn't be in games at all.

I'm not talking about shelling out big contracts. Second to fourth round draft picks don't make established starter money.

I can see that but if you take the read option out of our offense, I think that D Anderson would do a very good job at runing our O.

I agree with that as well.

Tell me how.

Similar height and stature. Both have the ability to run. Vince Young just won more games his first two years.

No, the Titans won more games than Carolina.

Cam is better. Much better thrower and runner. Vince had a D and a run game. Cam can't play that kind of QB.....coaches don't allow it.

Cam is the least of our worries.

I think we need to bring in another OC for competition.

Of all the things this team desperately needs, competition for Cam is not even on the menu. Fail :thumbsd:

Your delusional if you think he doesn't need competition. He's pissed away the last 3 games. When we keep losing we'll see what everyone says then.

He had a better run game because he could actually take a snap under center.

Question. Does Dalton, Bradford, or Stafford need competition?
