The difference between Cam 2011 and Cam 2012...

Cam Newton was what everyone dreamed he would be last season. He was accurate, showed poise in the pocket, read defenses, and had every skill set a QB needed to succeed in the NFL. So what's the difference from last year to this year. It's not like Cam decided "Oh well hmm Im going to play like poo because I just don't feel it this year."

There are many reasons why Cam has regressed this season. The biggest reason is Chud our OC. He threw out everything that worked last year in favor of the read option AS A BASE OFFENSE. No more professional NFL base offense in Carolina anymore. The read option slows down everything, not allowing Cam to read the defense after the snap, allows defenders extra time to get into the backfield which kills our run game. Which leads me to my next point.

Chud also decided it was a good time not to use our 90 million dollar backfield anymore. We have 2 runningbacks with 1,000 yard a year potential and added another RB that was supposed to boost our running game potential to extreme heights. But no, Chud decided screw that. His philosophy is better than anyone else in the league. Chud's ego is so big he believes anything he calls is unstoppable. How is a 2nd year QB supposed to succeed with no running game what so ever? Cam should've been able to lean on our running game this season to help him succeed, but our OC went full retard.

The third reason is of course Rivera, Hurney, and the coaching staff. How does Cam regress so much as far as mechanics? Why hasn't Cam been allowed to call audibles? The coaching staff is the only reason why. Cam improved throughout the year last season with his mechanics. It's the only conclusion. We also didn't strengthen our line this offseason. Our biggest plan was a rookie and a backup lineman to start at guard for us. Not to mention Gross is wildly inconsistent. As a result, Cam has been forced to run for his life and make 1-2 second decisions because our line can't block.

Yes Cam isn't playing well this season. Part of it is his fault, but very little. Out of 100%, I would say 5% at the most is his fault. He was not given any help at all this season. The front office and coaching staff should've done all they could to help out our second year QB, but they failed. Cam now has to start all over from scratch. Right now what you are seeing is the ending result of all of the reasons I listed above. We won't see the real Cam again until we get a competent coaching staff and can surround him with the players we need in order for him to succeed. Until then, get off Cam's back and stop blaming him for our offensive woes. He is the last person you should bash.

Cam was inaccurate last year.......often.

Biggest difference is he played off a consistent rush attack.....opened up his passing attack. Line play and play calling is what is hurting Cam and imploded Double Trouble.

Loads of fail in this post but I've bolded a complete factual error. On average Cam has 3.52 seconds in the pocket before he is sacked. That is the 11th longest in the league.

I agree there are a lot of reasons our offense is bad but no way any QB is only 5% responsible for his play

I find it hard to put much blame on a 2nd year QB that was left out to dry with no help

He has 10 interceptions. Giving him 5% of the blame means only half of an interception was on him. Yeah he could get a lot more help. But to give him almost no responsibilty for exectution is insane.
