Anyone here concerned with Cam's future (next year)?

Oh I agree, and I have no doubt that once a coach reaches the NFL ranks they are insufferable assholes who are tough nuts to crack in terms of adopting change. They're always right. I mean how hard headed is Chud and Rivera at this point? No one knows better than them!

that said...it doesn't really bother me if he can or can't.

the offense needs to be tailored to his strengths. the offense needs to be molded around him rather than trying to mold him to some offensive scheme that may not fit his skill set.

newton is incredibly talented. yes, he has areas that he needs coached up on and needs to improve upon, but there is more than enough there to have an elite offense. it doesn't have to be any traditional "pro-style" offense or whatever.

it just has to work. it worked last year. we know it can be done. they just have to do it.

imo, you get a coaching staff that can build around newton rather than try to make themselves look like geniuses and you've got an offense that can, once again, be among the best.

Exactly. Not only Cam, we have players like CJ, Beason, Kuechly on Defense and Gross, Olsen, Stewart/Dwill, 89 on Offense.

Anyone think Fisher wouldn't be drooling all over us this offseason over his Rams?

the offense was a top 5 offense last year.

this defense as-is is turning into a top 15, pushing top 10 D this year.

you put last year's offense with this years defense and you've got a dominant team.

the talent is here. a coaching staff that is able to bring it all together isn't. that's been the problem for years.

Interviewing for a GM job and coaching job isn't the same as interviewing for an inside sales rep job.

We aren't going to ask questions like "What are your greatest strengths and greatest weakness?"

When the GM candidate interviews he will give his vision for how to take the franchise to the next level and become a perennial playoff team.

If whoever is interviewing for the GM comes in to JR's office and says "Well the first thing we are going to do is trade or cut Cam Newton..." Unless there is some riff between Cam and JR that no one knows about, JR is going to get up out of his chair, shake the dude's hand, and simply say "Well, we will let you know" and move on to the next candidate.

Actually, some of my detractors here have gotten mad because after Cam has played poorly; I've gotten all over Cam. Although Cam Newton is my favorite athlete, and favorite Panther, I am always objective about his performance. Yes, I do hope he's a career Panther or close to it. If that's a hard-on then that's okay I suppose.

But thanks for adding so much to the football discussion here, Gabeking. Give yourself a pat on the back.

about half or more of your threads are about your fears of him leaving or speculation and hopes that we give him a lifetime contract and about ALL your threads are about him one way or another. and you think gene chizik would be a viable option as our HC. im sure im not the only who's getting sick of it.

Can't see this happening.

We have no further to look than Tampa Bay 2011 as a blueprint for 2nd year QB struggles and the success that can follow when a QB is given an offseason under a new staff.

You don't toss away a talent like Cam. You surround him with a capable offensive line and a coaching staff that will invest the time to develop him and will put him on a path to become a very good QB in this league, by catering the offense to his skill set.

Watching GOATCam post about Cam is like watching an abusive relationship. One minute Cam sucks, Cam's terrible, Cam needs to go, the very next minute Cam's junk is deep down his throat once again. For him to call himself "objective" is laughable at best. Objectivity is not going from one extreme to the other, every other day.

He'll most definitely be here but I'm just so uneasy about his future in general because of this damn organization it's beyond him but at the same time all about him since he's the face of it all. We gave him the keys to a car sucked in a twister without Helen Hunt or Bill Paxton.

You guys keep talking about last year. everyone's offensive numbers were up last year. and I have also heard it repeated by many that cam just can't run a pro style o, and, he has done nothing this season to prove them wrong. given his immaturity. and all of the basic coaching he needs, hell have you paid attention to his footwork. the superstar u guys are praying for is just not there and I for one hope the new gm sees it and does something about it before we waste to much time in something that's not gonna work.

That douche Marc Taylor on the drive said an inside "source" told him its a possibility the Panthers will look to draft the QB from NCstate and if Cam doesn't turn it around they will make a change.....

Haaaaaa but for what that's worth, not much. I hate the Drive
