We know he has the skills to be one of the best QB in the league. He's a solid passer but not elite due to accuracy issues, however he's probably the best running QB in the NFL which makes up for it.

One LARGE question remains: does he have that killer instinct? As good as hewn lately he's still 11-19 for his career and is yet to lead a game winning drive. Is he a winner? When he gets the ball with 2:43 left and 80 yards to go will we have confidence he's gonna deliver or will we find ourselves saying "here we go again"?

He needs to have us in the playoffs next year. I don't care who the coach, especially if the defense plays well again next year.

Look at his past. He has killer instincts. The team calling a lot of run plays with the lead is not Cam's fault. I think that he pretty much is starting to figure it all out and everything is slowing down for him. The main thing I think he needs to work on in the off season is his foot work. Sometimes it is pretty ad causing him to be inaccurate

He led a game-winning drive to beat the Jaguars last year. He's had multiple game-leading drives blown by the defense.

The only question for Newton is can he develop elite ball location?

1: Give him a future no.1 wideout or a true no.2 WR to go with Smitty.
2: Upgrade the DT, FS, and CB spot.

Cam will get us to the Playoffs.

Exactly. He would have had a game winning against Minn last year had Mare not blown the FG...what about Chicago this year?

And why are we even focusing on Newton? Why are we not focusing on getting a better team around the guy?

Cam's accuracy isnt that bad. He is still in the 58-60% completion range, 55% or below completion rate is considered poor in my book. Yes Cam misses some headscratchers from time to time, but what QB doesnt?

He's shown it in spurts. He needs to continue to work on his fundamentals. When his footwork gets sloppy, that's when the ball tends to start sailing.

Get Greg Roman here to work with Cam like how SF utilizes Kaepernick and Cam will get us in the playoffs.
