And after watching him go down again today you SHOULDNT be okay with this. This team needs to get back to running ball with RBs and a line that can block and not put Cams body at risk so much. Its not a philosophy you want to depend on just nice to have in your back pocket. Read option either pays off big or back fires HORRIBLY. You should know that. Regardless of whether we keep D Will or get rid of him we are still paying RBs a lot of money to do much of nothing.
He hurt his leg passing.
We need to invest in our OL. Protect Cam, aid the pass and whoever runs the ball.
What we did paying all these RBs was dumb. Would be dumb if you were building around any franchise QB. Dumber one who naturally produces on the ground.
We can pay big money to a RB when Cam isn't a young man.
Newton is what he is. Embrace it. His legs are part if the deal. Strip that away and the unique mismatch he gives....he wouldn't be special. Give him help where he needs it. D, OL, WR....try to win as much while he is in his window of being a freak. He will never be Peyton.....no point in limiting what he is.
None of that means don't run RBs. None of that means make Cam the primary runner.
