I don't want Cam to be treated like Alex Smith. Cam is a young kid growing into a roll that requires more the just playing well. You don't gain experience from sitting back. Look at Eli now because he went through the same thing Cam is going through. Playing ok but with the pressure that you should be elite every game.

Or we could surround him with a great coaching staff to develop him

Newton needs to work on his touch passing and footwork in the worst fuging way. He throws flat footed or off his back foot all the time, which doesn't help him. He has zero velocity control, it looks like he's either throwing 400 MPH or not at all. Subsequently, he's really good at the long ball and pretty poor with a short field.

I really hope whomever we bring in this off-season focuses on his fundamentals.

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.


Of course he's flashed this year (although not nearly as much as last). Point is: What difference does it make how well you play the rest of the game if you can't throw inside the 10 at all or inside 5 minutes left in games? You better hope you're blowing teams out to hold on for a win with Cam. And actually, we WERE blowing the Bears out today and STILL lost partly because Cam couldn't deliver late in the 4th again. Yes I know he drove for the field goal, but there was the pick 6 before that and the 3 and out before that and I'm not sure Cam had to throw a single money throw on that final drive.

wtf?

How about we sit Cam behind an awesome offensive coordinator, that way he will actually be able to run a normal, pro-style offense, and he'll be able to advance in a true fashion.

The sky is the limit for Cam, even in his current state. But being stuck behind this nowhere offense, he's not going to get any better.

Mentally, Cam Newton is about as weak right now as I've ever seen any quarterback ever. He's in mental shambles. I think the one chance to save his career in Carolina is to sign or trade for a veteran QB in 2013 that Cam can sit behind. I think this would have been best for him all along, get some of these crushingly high expectations off of him for a second and just let the guy regain his composure so he can FINALLY learn proper footwork, FINALLY learn how to pass inside the 10, FINALLY learn how to pick up a key first down or touchdown through the air late in the 4th quarter. Every time he has to go out there and learn on the fly, it's stacking up even more pressure on him when he fails time and time again.

I'll probably get flamed for this, but whatever. Thoughts?

Don't be a fuging idiot man. That is a terrible idea. It's not Cam that is the issue atm, he is just taking the brunt of media abuse.

I REALLY disagree with this... I don't see any "Vet" Qb giving this team a better chance to win over Cam, and I also don't think Cam being on the bench will be better for his development than being on the field... this is not the 90's... young QB's are playing and learning... See Bradford, Stafford, Ryan, Flacco, Big Ben, ect.

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.


Doesn't make any sense to me...if the topics are the same.

Ok, whom? Remember they have to fit under the cap, be worth a roster spot, & be able to help Cam learn.

Why bring up the pick 6 and insinuate that was Cam's fault or a veteran QB would not have the same outcome? That was the right throw, and in that situation I will ask him to throw it again... it's a timing route, the WR slipping is just unfortunate.

Did the Giants do this to Eli when he was struggling in his young career?



Eli sat behind Warner. Just sayin
