Our fanbase doesn't deserve a franchise qb, whether it be Cam or whoever.

Just a mob of women on their menstrual cycles.


Women on their menstrual cycles are pretty tough.

One... screw the read option unless you're playing my Gamecocks


You can always spot the guys whose college team's asses Cam administered a beating.

Everyone wants to blame the media for an egotistical bias and that's simply not the case. Cam and only him put himself in position through his comments and that god awful jacket. He's not a leader. A leader doesn't sulk on the sidelines and put a towel over his head. The leader doesn't say to bring in a suggestion box.

We can all agree that Cam is more an athlete then Jake Delhomme ever was. But Delhomme was more a leader then Cam will ever be. Less then two years into his starting tenure this team is divided like it's never been. The QB IS the leader of the team and right now this team is reflecting his attitude.


Your post says way more about you than it does Cam.

And along with the other SHALLOW problems you have with Cam, you also dislike his jacket. Got it.

WTF??? he has the towel on his head and sits on the sidelines win or lose? get off the media nuts bro. How do you know what kind of leader he is? only the players and coaches know. Cam doesnt call the plays and I think it took a LEADER to tell the media that he isnt buying into the play calling of 10 runs a game. eat a fat greasy D!!!!!!!!!!

The jacket line was a joke bro. My problems with him pertain to what's on the field. It's annoying though to see how he hands his problems that were on the field off the field.

I don't know what kind of Leader he is.....but Smitty does and that's why he chewed him out. I trust Smitty over Cam.

He did administer a beating too us. Which is why when we drafted I was really excited because I thought he'd be doing that for one of my teams now. I didn't hate drafting him because he beat us, actually the reverse.

It is one thing to be frustrated with Cam's play so far this year. It is yet another to actually want to waste valuable resources on "Competition".

This team needs upgrades at multiple positions. Wasting resources needed to fill these holes on competition for a second year talent is just silly.

Think before you post. That way your arguement may not seem so lame.


Why the quotation marks around the word competition? We didn't waste any time provide Clausen with some competition did we? Why does this apply to Cam and not to him?

Why waste a draft pick on a qb? I would love to have Geno in here but its not going to happen. Cam does need to grow up DA should be giving Cam all support and wisedom he has. If he isn't then bring in a veteran to show Cam how to lead. Cam needs to man up and start being a leader. That doesn't mean having press conferences. It showing it on the field and sideline.

LOL at a franchise QB needing competition. If winning is not enough to push him then he will be out of the league in a few years, but Cam does not need competition. You give him 4 years minimum then determine if you need to go another direction at that time or bring someone else in.

I'm in no way advocating Clausen here. I don't think he's the guy. But he didn't get that benefit that you're speaking about. So why does Cam and not him?

Cam was drafted as the #1 pick because he has the tools to be the franchise QB with a high ceiling... Jimmy was a 2nd round pick and a project/potential franchise Qb.... Jimmy does not get the same benefit because he does not have the same upside... when you are the #1 pick at QB you are the day 1 franchise QB period... for better or worst.

Just my opinion.

And he has been....and he's getting two years to be the unquestioned guy. But let's say the Panthers don't win another game.....or finish 3-13.....you don't seriously think about bringing in a guy to compete? Not replace...not cut CN.......compete with him at the very least?

I haven't read a single post in this thread, but I will say this.


I don't think Cam needs "competition". He needs a coach that is going to challenge him every single day. A coach that is going to tell him "this is your goal for today's practice. Improve on this. If you fail, you do extra conditioning" or something along those lines. He fails to reach too many goals, then you start giving a few extra snaps to the backup. Cam is never going to lose the job unless he just implodes. He's not playing that bad this season. Last week, he did a LOT better about not sitting in the pocket all day. He reverted back to last season: 3-4 seconds, nobody there, get what I can with my legs. Pocket collapsing? Try to escape and just run. That being said, there were a couple of times where he had NO time for the play to develop. That isn't on him.

Cam is fine. He has some things he can iron out, like any young QB. He still has bad tendencies, like not setting his feet when he does indeed have time. Or not looking off defenders. But those issues are minor compared to the OL issues and the playcalling.
