Jake Delhomme had a better team around him. Cam is better than Jake at this point. QB isn't our problem at all. I'd get Godfrey some very good help back there and upgrade the Oline and DT depth and talent. There is nothing that is all of a sudden wrong with #34 or #28. I do think that #69 isn't living up to the hype, far from a pro bowl year. I think he would agree.

I'm happy with #24 and #22 at the moment but a certain weakness in our secondary is being dialed up at crunch time and exploited. I really like how this defense is playing aside from the obvious weakness in the secondary.

I'm a Kuechly fan. This defense plays much better with him on the field. The D line is a big surprise.

maybe...but the biggest difference between this team and anything jake delhomme played with is delhomme's ability to lead and motivate the guys around him.

not taking anything away from newton's athleticism, but i don't believe this team would be 2-8 with delhomme's leadership (pre meltdown skillset of course).

can't believe that we are comparing Jake to Cam. There's no contest. How much read option was Jake forced to run? Honestly - no coach Jake had was ever as bottom of the barrel as Rivera.

The coach should be the leader. The coaches should be putting their players in position to win. Cam has played well enough to win most games. Some people will never like Cam, I get it, but I'd take Cam over Jake all day. When your team can't run block or pass protect you can't win.

He'll be great when he gets good coaches.

This. If anything I'm worried about his confidence right now.

His footwork still sucks, he's not turning his shoulders and stepping into throws and that's part of why he's so inaccurate this season. I hope he looks up George Whitfield again this offseason.

his mechanics can still be a mess, i agree.

he seems like he's receptive to coaching though. problem is we don't have a lot of that going on in carolina unfortunately.
