Then line him up at RB. Because lately he has sucked at QB.

Cameron is fine as our QB. He needs REAL lineman, not turnstiles. He needs receivers who get open and fight for balls. He needs a defense that doesnt rely on him every week. He needs a competent coaching staff.

Without Newton we have no running game, so that makes sense.

If we're shifting positions based on performance Smith and Olsen are the only two hanging tight. Maybe we can see if Gross can run a slant, since he's bad at blocking people now.

you have a serious issue of Cam Newton colored glasses bro, if you can't tell the pick 6 was all on him, then there is nothing I'm going to be able to say to change that. Because that wasn't even iffy, it was blatant.

imo the pick 6 was more on cam, and little on lafell.. but you gotta give carter credit for making the play

they should fire chud, move shula up to OC(since he has some experience there), and hire weinke as a QB coach to finish the season out... i'm sure business is some what slower for weinke during the season.

Disagree....

Young QB should factor in.....7 more games going in this direction won't be good for Cam big picture. Offensively, a new direction and mindset could be a good thing.

I think a change in OC should be made. No point firing Rivera though, agree there.

It takes months to install an offensive scheme. Unless you are going to run the exact same scheme with someone else calling plays you don't make a change mid season. And then you have no one who knows the offense better than Chud. Yes we suck on offense this year but firing the OC mid year is just plain stupid. Special teams perhaps, even defense if you have someone else to run it, but not offense. How often has that happened in the past 2 years to any team???

sigh...... (Looses faith in the human race and walks away into the sunset)

Real note, fist explain to me why the panthers play calling was what it was and what you would do different?

The difference here is I know and you don't, I just don't feel like giving a lesson in football 101 so I'm asking you to figure this out on your own.

Allow me to answer for him with some stats I posted late last night...

From the 1st half of yesterday's game...

Ratio of under center to shotgun plays: 33% vs 67%

Ratio of run plays to pass plays: 29% vs 71%

Under center run average yards per play: 4.2

Shotgun run average yards per play: 2.0

Under center pass average yards per play: 11.5

Shotgun pass average per play: 4.4

Sink in yet? Okay, let's look at our touchdown drive. During that drive, we ran 5 under center plays. We ran 1 play out of the shotgun.

So that's 1 possession with 5 under center plays resulting in a touchdown.

We had 6 other possessions in the 1st half that did not result in scores. In those 6 possessions, we ran a total of 4 plays from under center. Four.

The game started off with quick short throws, with a couple of intermediates thrown in. Cam completed his first 6 passes.

Does that answer your question Doc?

your stats are telling the truth, but you are missing it, and its starring you right in the face. Think hard and tell me what you see.

You are looking at one thing the stats are saying but not the other. It's so blatant I'm finding it very funny.

Remember the truth is in your stats, and if you figure out what I mean you just may take a step closer to actually understanding the game.

Here let me phrase it too you in a different way that maybe you would understand better what it is I'm getting at.

1) why would you play out of the shotgun if you were having more success early on under center?

2) why would you go deep, when early on you had success in short passing routes

3) why would you do multiple pass/hand off fakes?

See it now?

Ok, I get it, his data/stats indicate, although a small sample, that Cam (and the running game) was more successful with Cam under center. Even from an anecdoctal position, JStew and DeAngelo are much more productive out of the pro set.

Enough with the childish riddles. You're no Bill Walsh or Joe Gibbs, so save the "football genious" BS for some of your clown friends who might buy into it.

Remember, the truth is in the stats, not in a make-believe-I-know-the-game-better-than-you world...lol

This is the best example of how dysfunctional this organization is/was, our GM sinks a ton of money into a backfield our OC doesn't plan to use very much.

Hopefully our next GM and coaching staff will be on the same page, Hurney should have gone out the door with Fox.
