What happens to Cam Newton now that Chud is gone?

39 posts in this topic

Cam's ability to adapt is the least of my worries. We just need to be sure we get a competent OC. The rest will take care of itself.

I've always felt the best scheme for Cam is one like Ben Roethlisberger ran in Pittsburgh early in his career. Hopefully we bring that scheme in. Ben's O.C. at the time? None other than Ken Whizenhunt.

we need more than competent. we've got to play in the NFC and against atlanta and new orleans twice a year. we've got to score early and often. competent won't dominate.

Chaos. RR dosent know jack poo about O so I hope he QUALITY OC that knows how to use Cam. The loss of Chud was my main concern when RR was in danger of being fired. Chud is a great OC for a QB like Cam when he dosent have his head up his ass...

For context, I meant competent as in someone who is good at their job, as opposed to the Chudster.

I imagine our offense will be better. I don't know what I base that off of, but I just think that with Cam being in his 3rd year, and probably getting a good receiver in the draft, I just think we'll be good.

Can't believe you guys really think we're going to change offenses.

Why wouldn't it change?

The guy who used to call the plays is gone. You must think Rivera was secretly calling the plays or something.

Well for one thing I think he will hand the ball to Williams more often.

    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
