Kinda reinforces what we've seen so far.

Agree the formatting needs work.

Need good slot WR... We do have one, Smitty, but we use him on deep throws. We either need to draft slot WR or move Smitty to slot. Gotta stop ignore position of need year after year.

Never understood why Newton has such a hard time with short passes and why his passes always get tip. I mean he is is 6'6.....weird.

Smitty should be our #2 not slot.

I'm completely speculating, but it could be because of just how big and strong he is.

Sort of like Shaq shooting a free throw, but not nearly as terrible. Cam has gigantic hands and a rocket arm, so when he needs to just loft a pass or put a little bit of touch on a throw he ends up throwing a laser dart that our RB or WR is unable to handle. That or it sails 10 feet over his head.
