Matt Moore had a winning record 2 out of 3 years his number was called

Clausen isn't a NFL QB

still think Marino had the better 2 first seasons overall, even if purely based on stats one can make an argument for Cam... there is more to the game than just stats. That's not to say that Cam hasn't had one of the best first two seasons ever, he has - but I don't think his two seasons are as good as those Marino had.

Have to disagree. With no running game and an o-line playing like crap? We would have been seeing a lot of bad Jake. Like maybe 25 interceptions and a half dozen sack/fumbles is what I would envision.



Jake had an old Stephen Davis and Deshaun "my acl hurts" foster. The running game from those days was so overrated. The line...well...I wont argue that..

One note about Marino: he was drafted by a Dolphins team coming off a Super Bowl trip. Cam went to the 2-14 Panthers.

Jake was a better leader, emotional sparkplug and "professional".

Cam is by far the better QB and once he irons out a few things he still struggles with he could be legen...wait for it....dary.

I would take 2003-07 Jake over rookie and soph Cam in the 4th Q. Call him lucky, but he got in done. So will Cam with time, but we are in the playoffs thia year with Jake.


:lol:

Games we won with Cam this year we would have LOST with Jake.

It may be sad that a good QB cannot make a bad team better. But, Cam is the reason we have a future. If you cannot see that. Wait for it... you are a bad weather fan.

Cam is our future. And the future is very bright.

Any Jake Delhomme is a better qb when planets align and its a home game played on an even numberd day of the month is laughable. Cam is better and more talented than any QB we have ever had and its not close.

The fact we have pretty much traded punches with the best teams in the NFL each week speaks voulmes on this and Delhomme would have imploded with his bowl cut of Cajun anger...and Im a Delhomme fan and my original Huddle name was Jambalayah!

I loved having Jake as our QB, and that was a special season from start to finish. It's just that we had a better team then, and Jake wasn't asked to be our whole offense.

I know where and when Marino was drafted. That doesn't detract at all from what he was able to do, particularly in his second year. I'm sorry, but it's not like Marino was coasting by on a good team.

Cam is a great player and has had an amazing first two years, but I just can't ignore that second year by Marino in this comparison, and all the accolades that came with it.

Cam may be the better quarterback in the long run, and hopefully he will actually win a title, but I don't think it is any slight against Cam to think Marino had a better first 2 years.

there's two and a half minutes left in the fourth and the panthers are nursing a 2 point lead. they drove to midfield before stalling out. the punt is downed at the opponents' 15.

if you're watching the 2005 panthers, you know a big stop or turnover is coming. if you're watching the 2012 panthers...

Actually I mentioned that to help point out why Cam isn't winning like Marino did his first two years. Marino had a more competent team around him.
