How long does Cam Newton get a pass?

68 posts in this topic

if he wants cam to stay he's gonna have to 1)pay the man more than any QB out there and 2) put a team and coaching staff around him that will win and make him want to stay (which should be happening right nw anyway).

why? what has cam done to deserve a big paycheck?

By that time the Pats will be looking for a replacement for Brady. Think the Pats would spend a bunch of money on Cam?

I think the biggest problem here along with the O-line being horrible is Chud's play calling. I mean why the hell do we keep trying to throw the ball downfield so much? Our O-line was getting destroyed and Chud is still calling plays that take way too long to develop. We need to take what the defense is giving us and stop trying to force what is not there. Our first touchdown drive of the day was the perfect formula for that defense, use their aggressiveness against them with swing passes and screens and make them change. I want Chud gone now!

I don't even understand what Cam would need a pass for. He shouldn't even be in the discussion on how to fix the team at this point.

When you look at the things that have changed from our top 5 offense of last year vs. this year, the top thing is the scheme and the plays. Not the QB.

Nobody thinks that Stewart and Williams suddenly started sucking because they only get 68 yards. That would be a silly thing to think, when it's so obvious it's the result of the playcalling. And it's equally silly to blame it on Cam.

I definitely blame coaching for our losing, but something is troubling me when it comes to Cam. Why doesn't he tell the coaches about the problems on offense? How the schemes suck and so forth? I guarantee if Luck was our QB, and Rivera tried to spring these read option plays on him, he would use that playbook for toilet paper. He would tell him the ink in the playbook, was not worth the paper it was printed on. So why is Cam taking it all on his shoulders? That's why he's so frustrated, taking in all the blame when most of the blame should lie on coaching.

I'm cheering for mutiny in the locker room, because it's obvious this coaching staff doesn't care.

He gets the time left on his rookie deal IMO.

This. If Alex Smith teaches us one thing, it is that coaching can make a tremendous difference. This staff is doing Newton no favors this year.

That said, Newton has plenty to work on himself. Coaching/scheme/poor line play aside, he's made plenty of mistakes this year that lie squarely on him.

By the way, if they can bench a young Joe Adams, who definitely gives us our best chance at having good returns, why can't they bench Cam Newton who's struggling as well? I feel Derek Anderson gives us the best chance to win.

Prob should bench Stewart and Dwill too and put Newton at RB cause he has more yard than both of them Running.

Or why are we benching a young Taurn Poole?

Or what about Tolbert? He's good right? right?

EDIT: Oh wait, I didn't see this...

With Anderson being a mature QB, we can let him run the full offense.

LOL, yes when I think of Derek Anderson, mature really comes to mind. Imagine the backlash if Cam either A - laughed on the sidelines on a night game, or B - responded like this when asked about it.

I think DA does indeed give us the best chance to win, but not because of DA or Cam. It's because the coaches would actually be forced to re-evaluate their scheme and go back to the air coryell style that worked so well last year.

That doesn't actually mean bench Cam, it means the coaches are idiots.

Actually, Cam has been our main running back in this scheme. Yet with all that aside, Cam have shown he still needs work on his mechanics. Major work. He can learn that while backing up a guy who is further along in that area. I like to see Cam in a humbling situation, see how he responds.

If Alex Smith got what 5 seasons before he actually put out a somewhat respectible season then Cam will get just as long. It's actually funny to me that a lot of people around here believe Cam is the problem you can tell the guy has "it" yet people still ridicule him it isn't his fault he isn't being coached properly. Like people have mentioned Cam goes to the sideline and recieves almost no coaching take a look around the league and show me a team that does that, there isn't one except the Carolina Panthers we need new coaches preferablly sooner rather than later but it won't happen until the offseason more than likely.
