What are Cam and Smitty's yardage totals by the end of the season?

22 posts in this topic

On a whim I just checked stats on NFL.com.

Cam Newton: 2,701 yards

Steve Smith: 770 yards

With five games left to go, Cam needs 1,299 yards to reach the 4,000 mark on the season... that's 260 passing yards per game. To beat his own rookie record of 4,051 yards he'll need 270 passing yards per game. To beat his rushing yardage total from last season he'd need just over 52 rushing yards per game, and to beat rushing touchdowns he'd need 9 more over five games.

With five games left to go, Steve needs 230 yards to eclipse the thousand yard mark for the seventh time in his career... that's an average of 46 yards per game. If he can manage 80 yards receiving per game for the rest of the year it'll put him at 1170 on the year, good for the fourth highest total of his career.

My analysis: Cam has averaged 246 yards per game over the season so far. Bumping it up to 260 per game isn't unreasonable given the trending improvement of the offense as a unit, and we are facing some pretty terrible teams down the stretch, but still it's a tall order.

Steve's average over the season thus far is 70 YPG, fairly pedestrian compared to years past but still a solid year. He's faced the toughest cornerback competition he'll see this year (with the possible exception of upcoming Kansas City) so 46 YPG is hardly a stretch. I think he picks up another thousand-yard season receiving and a pair of touchdowns to end his season with three total.

So be of good cheer. However it shakes out, in spite of this year's ineptitude rushing the football, we have one hell of a quarterback and one hell of a talented wide receiver who's still potent in spite of his age and size.

I think Smitty gets there. They seem like they're making a conscious effort to get him involved early and often.

Cam simply won't have a chance. They're going to dial him back these last several games and limit chances for turnovers. Hence, Rivera saying "more with less" with Cam. Cam won't get to 4000 yards passing. He will be around 180-200 yards passing per game average. I just hope he finishes with around 20 passing TD's and only throws one or two more picks...

Dial him back? He has to be a one man monster show in order for us to beat a horrible team. They can't dial him back.

They need to win 4 more games to improve their record from last year and that is all that is important.

I disagree. It's been the opposite. Rivera puts everything on Cam's plate...that's part of why we are 3-8...

Cam has to play perfect football in order for us to win...which is sad

i was expecting the offense to build on last year, just like most were. and 40 TDs from cam is only a 5 TD increase over last year's so it wasn't like i was getting greedy or anything. i thought it was pretty reasonable that he have a little increase in TDs.

i was expecting progress from one of the best offenses in the league last year with a rookie QB. not total regression in their ability to get into the end zone. there's no reason why this offense shouldn't be able to put up at least 25 points a game.

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
