I don't understand why we can't put the plays on his arm like last year

like others said, he didn't wear one last year.

that doesn't really have much to do with him not calling audibles.

chud's head is big and he trusts no one but himself. he thinks he's smart enough to win games, despite the fact that it isn't happening.

cam may need to know more to be trusted more with calling audibles, but if he's not prepared and equipped to do that, it falls squarely on the coaching staff for not developing him.

imo, the coaching staff dropped the ball in a lot of areas this year. they've not only stalled newton's growth, but they've also stunted the growth of the offense by paring down the giant playbook chud had created to just a few pages and not putting them in positions to win like they did last year.

LaFell said on mac attack this morning that Cam CAN audible, but it is very limited. There are only two other plays for him to go to apparently.

thats normal... one run and one pass

but for us its probably more like read option.... and read option

The responses in this thread expose some of the shitbird, fake ass fans who would rather hate on a single player, than be a fan of the team (yous two know exactly who you are). Cam doesn't wear a QB wristband, because Chud made him study/memorize the entire Playbook, last year. Chud gave and interview in the CO about this very thing.

one of the things that is crucial in the next regime is not just proper development of newton, but allowing and trusting him to make adjustments to the play and call audibles when needed or even have plays that are intended to be audibles.

fwiw, there is one potential HC who does this as part of his system. hopefully they all do.
