Over the last three games

45 posts in this topic

I don't really believe all of Cam's slumping was just due to poor coaching. When you think about it, he took the league by storm last season and teams didn't know how to defend him. Toward the end of the season they started to figure him out minus the Tampa game. This season he struggled still with how teams were defending the offense, and it seems, where most young QBs turn the corner in their third year, Cam has done it half way through his second. I don't expect 10 tds and 0 ints to continue, but I do expect this is the Cam Newton we will see for the rest of this season, and going forward. He has adjusted to the league adjusting to him. Now they are f#*%'d.

You cats ain't seen nothing yet! Just wait until we can get some coaching that will teach Cam to throw with anticipation. He will really set the league on fire once that happens. So far, Cam has been depending on raw arm strength.

Quote from an NFL article on how Cam is turning it around:

The coaches spent much of the summer trying to diversify their option package, in an effort to stay a step ahead. However, after that rough start, they decided to revert to what they'd done well in 2011 in those looks, which helped Newton play faster. By taking some things off of Newton's plate, offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula could focus on quickening Newton's decision-making and refining his footwork.
They took things off of Cams plate to let him play faster.

Some nfl qbs over the past three games.

Cam: 10 tds, 0 ints, 1,071 yards

Brees: 4 tds, 9 ints, 962 yards

Brady: 9 tds, 1 ints, 857 yards

Rodgers: 2 tds, 2 ints, 678 yards

Ryan: 4 tds, 2 ints, 860 yards

RGIII: 7 tds, 1 ints, 945 yards

No one has even been that close to Cam except Brady, he has been easily the most dominant qb in the game the last three games. It is kind of crazy how he turns out when he is hot.

Wow thats crazy when you look at it that way. Cam also has more games with a QB rating of 100 or better than Rodgers does this year btw

Im excited to see what he does the rest of the season. If he continues to trend upward and play at his current level I will feel comfortable thinking that it has finally clicked and things have slowed down for him.

I think incredible things are ahead for Cam and for the Panthers. This season has been really rough, but this season may end up being a blessing in disguise. It could end up galvanizing the team for the future...toughening everyone up and building a talented young core with a fuging attitude.

Proof that w.o Sean payton, Moleface is Doug Flutie 2.0

I'd say it's proof that all good qbs have bad games/slumps.

I thought that was BS when Ron said it, and I'm even more sure now. They didn't "take anything off his plate". They dialed back the read option crap and started running a more balanced attack. If anything, they have added to what they're asking him to do by giving him the freedom to audible.

This is one of the reasons I really don't like Ron. Rather than admit that he and Chud fugged up the playcalling, they made it sound like they had to dumb it down so Cam could experience some success. I don't know how the players feel about Ron, but had I been in Cam's shoes when hearing that quote, I would have been seriously pissed off.

I felt the same way. Ron is a master at passive-aggressively deflecting blame. Must come from his experience in a military family.

i see no one left on the schedule that would keep him from playing just as well.
