Can't believe people blame cam for not having game winning drives

73 posts in this topic

I'm starting to question the true motivations of those who continually bash Cam, and I doubt it has much to do with football.

To be certain, Cam needs to work on his footwork which will improve his accuracy. But he was more a reason why were close to winning this game than a reason we lost it.

Exactly... I am one of the most objective persons I know. I even critique myself as if I was someone else observing with no agenda. Cam Newton makes a couple of mistakes during the course of every game. But so does every other QB in the league.

To those bashing Cam, who would you have replace him - realistically? Peyton and Eli, Brees, Brady, Roethlisberger aren't realistic options. And if you say Clausen or Anderson, then I give up.

Good lord. If you see that gif and think "bad playcalling", then you are riding Cam too hard. Cam is the one that sh*t the bed on that play. Watch it again if you have to. He missed a wide open player and you think it was the coaches fault? Some people will continue blaming the coaching staff regardless of what they see in front of them. Cam overthrew Smith in the final drive today. We had to settle for the field goal. The defensive play-calling sure did lose us this game, but a TD in the final drive would have put us in a better position.

LOL! WTF?! man i have heard it all now

MadHatter are you really this slow?

In no way did he lay this loss on the defense. And in no way does him saying he has confidence in our D indicate he was blaming this for loss. He said the offense needed more scores in the red zone and gave credit to the D for putting them in good spots.

Now IMO, the defense played well yesterday, but they still cant be trusted with the game on the line, and that has been an major issue for 2 seasons. Chicago's D in the 4th quarter made plays and scored points. Might be why they're the #1 D, they step up big when the game counts.

i could have taken it if it was just the bears wrs making a spectacular play to win the game. but when it is the SAME PLAY over and over agian that beats them and gets them into field position i cant fathom that.

the offenses job is to score points. period. be it field goals or tds. sometimes you are going to face a team with a stout d and tds may be hard to dome by.

the defense's job is to stop the opponent from scoring. sometimes you may go agianst a team that is more talented offensively than you are defensively.

in either case both sides may have to pick up the other.

it also makes no sense to play the what if game.

He said that he had confidence that the D could stop them, but they didn't. If you can't see that he was blaming the defense for that loss, you are only marginally functioning. But then again, I guess I expect too much from someone with an IQ of about 65.

Our offense could NOT score TD's all day. The defense repeatedly put them in good positions and they could not respond.

The funny thing is, this is the first game of the season we had kicked a lot of FGs. I believe we had 3 all season before this game? Our kicker did an OUTSTANDING job yesterday, he deserved the gameball had we pulled it off.

If yesterday's offensive performance was led by Derek Anderson, Jake Delhomme, or Jimmy Clausen...we all know that you would be praising the D and blaming the O. Everyone here knows your agenda and it is pathetic.

You have your agenda, and hear what you wanna hear. Cam did nothing but praise the D in his press conference. In no way did he say "they didnt get it done", he hung the loss on the O and himself. I'm not surprised you cant see the leadership qualities in a QB like Cam Newton.

The only way you can see leadership qualities in Cam is with a microscope....they are almost non existent.

And this has NOTHING to do with race....I say the same thing about Jay Cutler. They guy is selfish and has never been able to lead when things are rocky....just like Cam.

Guy is a hell of an athlete. But his leadership skills are severely lacking....and it is showing.

Cam is the biggest leader in that locker room. Our team captains are invisible. If Cam didnt play here, nobody would know Carolina had a team. The fact you cant see intangibles in a person like Cam Newton is not a shock. The fact you're not willing to follow our leader, is not shocking. That'd be like being shocked the sun comes up in the morning.

I too think Cam has far to go to be a great leader on the field. Good news is he is young and will mature into it.
