"Unlike quarterbacks such as Denver’s Peyton Manning or New Orleans’ Drew Brees, Newton doesn’t have much freedom to audible at the line of scrimmage if he reads a blitz." Rivera said the team has double calls in the huddle, but few changes of the play call at the line.
- Cam made audibles last year beginning with his first TD pass to SS on the audible/check against the Cardinals.
“It’s not necessarily limiting what he can do at the line of scrimmage,” offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski said. “Some of the things you want to get in rhythm as an offense and are just ‘go’ plays, and you’re going to run them no matter what you see. There’s other things where he does need to check and has the ability to check.
- That is exactly what they are doing (limiting Cam). That go play nonsense means that many plays are doomed no matter what. How can you be an OC and be that bull-headed.
“There are different style offenses. Some people go up there and check every single play. That’s not what we’re doing right now. “I don’t see doing that anytime soon.”
- This is like JR making fun of Peyton Manning and asking who is Jim Harbaugh. That is insane that Chud is acting like his way of calling the offense is so much better. I am still failing to realize why they are treating Cam like a rookie this year having had a full off-season of coaching in stark contrast to last year when they had virtually no time to put in offense. Things were wide open last year and very balanced compared to this year. We will have to get rid of Chud and Rivera because with this dudes ego, we will never see any adaptation and the constant mishandling of our young QB.
