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.

Sort of like Shaq shooting a free throw, but not nearly as terrible.

still funny that people think he should quit running and be just a pocket passer....

Part of this is also a function of the offensive philosophy. So long as RR is here, we're running an Air Coryell system, which is fine by me because it matches Newton's natural strengths.

some here think he should only run if forced to and referenced how Eli Manning plays the game. That he should play like Eli. They pretty much of implied that since Gettlemen is a dinosaur used to traditional play (his preference) that Gettlemen will be our HC and OC this year and have Cam follow Eli Manning's style.

I say Cam will keep on being Cam. They think a comment by old man Gettlemen suddenly means everything we know about Cam and his history of success if irrelevent when discussing his play going forward.

Actually, it has more to do with the fact that he typically is late getting to his checkdowns because he likes to look downfield as long as possible. When you're late on the underneath throws you have a hard time completing them. This will improve with experience.
