Stephen A. and Herm Edwards take Cam, Skip Bayless of course takes Freeman.

Stephen A. and Herm both basically say Cam is failing because Rivera (and Chud) are failing him.

I would say that is an accurate analysis. I'm not sure if Cam will be better than Free but the fact is his situation sucks.

As I've said before, no young QB is pro ready. They all need guidance to become a successful NFL QB. Rivera is a defensive guy that seems to be somewhat hands off overall as a head coach. I stead of teaching Cam how to be an NFL QB, Chud is basing the offense off of college schemes stalling any progression in Cams game. Shula's record as a QB coach is not that prestigious working with the likes of Gerrard and Fielder. Add in the fact that Cam doesn't really have that veteran guy at the position giving him tips and sharing some veteran knowledge. He's got Andersn and Clausen sitting behind him, neither of which has had any consistent success in the league. And ignoring the receiver position as Carolina has makes passing difficult no matter who is behind center.

Now I'm there should definitely be blame placed on Cam but is situation isn't conducive to a young QB or a veteran QB for that matter.

You can make fun of Freeman all you want but he is having a great year.

Freeman has always looked the part IMO but the Bucs quit last year and have traditionally sucked ass.(much like we are now)

Is there a division with stronger QB play than the NFC South? Hard to win here.

I think that we could get better production out of our backs if the oline wasn't so banged up.

Good ground game and good WRs.....middle of the road coaching tends to work out.

Week 1 - 0 rushing yards from our RBs. Line at 100%

I have a lot of respect for Freeman and I especially like how he handles himself. For leadership help I wouldn't mind him looking to Freeman. However, I'd take Cam just because I think his ceiling is a lot higher than Freeman's.

Surprised two of three took Newton.

The usual MO for analysts is to go with whomever's team is winning more games (i.e. lazy analysis).
