You keep starting Cam because he's your starter. He's not as soft as Clausen and Cam won't learn a damn thing watching from the sideline.

At the moment, I'm worried as much or more about his brain than his body.

Playing behind a poor OL is reinforcing bad habits and messing with his head.

Let's say you're the Panthers head coach right now.

(insert joke here)

You see what everyone else sees. Specifically, that your star quarterback is getting killed behind a terrible offensive line right now. You remember what happened to David Carr in a similar situation, and you don't want to see your quarterback ruined like he was. It occurs to you that maybe the best thing you can do for him is to bench him, save him from the beating he's taking, let him learn from the sidelines for the remainder of this season and start fresh next year.

But then, reality sets in. Your job is on the line. In order to keep it, you need to win games. That means putting the guy who gives you the best chance to win on the field, and that's your starter.

What do you do?

there is only one solution I know of and its quite simple. . .

You inspire men to be the men they're supposed to be and become the leader that this team needs right now.

Harping on missed calls like that illegal block to the back (on Senn?) on the Holiday return will only invoke fear in your team that now the refs are against you too. Pick your head up, put foot to ass and motivate our men. Crossed arms and soft spoken words of encouragement doesnt get it done against the best of the best.

I was thinking something like this, except with a more passionate tone.


edit: any of you military guys want to comment? When youre facing an L shaped ambush and you think you might be fugged, there is one course of action. . . . Lock n load and attack straight up the gut as hard and fast as you can.

You can't forget Cam may be playing for his job too. Tell him to quit that gay @ss superman poo and grow up.

i wouldn't bench my QB.

i would however run the living poo out of my 100x1000x gazillion dollar backfield.
