The new GM and new coach in 2013 need to sit Cam behind a vet QB

Okay, what actual reason do you have to believe that he WILL indeed get that "poo" together? Just blind faith.

The man isn't playing like the 2009 Jake Delhomme or the 2010 Jimmy Clausen. No, he hasn't been as good as he was last year but he hasn't been horrible either. He's 23 years old and he has a history of leading his team to championships. If you surround the kid, yes kid, with some more talent, then there is absolutely no reason to believe that he will not succeed.

I love your posts SMF....but, cam played great today. Minus his goal line fumble, those two ints were a result of a slip, and Olsen not running to the ball/great defensive play..

Was he able to throw inside the 10? Pick up first downs or touchdowns when he needed to through the air? Pretty sure that final drive we had was him using his legs along with the running backs unless I'm mistaken which was a good strategy because there was no way in hell Cam was picking up the downs he needed that late in the game.

I'm not crazy right? Cam Newton is the worst quarterback in football with 5 minutes left in games and inside the 10 yard line at any point in the game. Right? In those instances, he becomes worse than Clausen when throwing. His runs have saved him at times, but he can't pick up what he has to in those important scenarios to save his life right now.

I respectfully disagree with the OP.

The first time this "vet QB" throws a pick at home, how long does it take for the "We Want Cam" chants to start? You drafted Cam as a high-risk, high-reward prospect and showed faith by starting him from day one. You don't go back now.

Valid concerns on his footwork and short field passing. I also think he's not in a good place mentally right now. Disagree on benching him, which wouldn't help anyone. You couldn't get a good starter in knowing Newton was breathing down his neck from the beginning and anyone else we brought in Newton would beat for the job outright. Plus you'd probably do more to hurt his confidence in doing so.

He did drive us down the field to take the lead, getting several first downs and making several completions along the way. You'd need to bench the coaching and defense for giving up the lead.

Lets bench Cam

Not get him a top WR prospect

Guys are open time and time again late in games and inside the 10 and Cam is just missing them in those spots about as badly as one can miss. Seriously Clausen-esque.

sam mills fan has been posting here for years and was right about a bunch of stuff re: john fox, marty hurney, jimmy clausen, jake delhomme, dwayne jarrett, etc.

maulclaw doesn't like our quarterback and that's the one thing he posts about.

Did this happen with Kurt Warner and Eli? It might have, I honestly don't remember.
