"Probably the biggest thing for him is maintaining that balance," Shula said. "Because everything around you during the football season is going to be up and down."

 

 

I looked for this topic on the Huddle and did not see where it had been addressed.  Sorry if there is a thread that died on this topic, but I think it is significant. Nothing is more important to this team than Cam Newton's development.  So, if Shula goes public and says that Cam needs emotional balance, then it is significant.  I am thankful that Shula recognizes that the final piece to the Cam puzzle can be found between his ears.  I think Cam realizes it too. 

 

There is a difference between a leader and a front runner.  Shula wants Cam to lead. I get it, but I also know there will be those here who do not.

so is shula planning to do this from the box or the sidelines?

 

btw, i think yas spun that comment to make cam sound like some guy with emotional problems who needs someone standing there beside him holding his hand. without context contexti think yas is pulling a peter king.

i do have this wish that shula had just stayed cam's QB coach. nothing against dorsey, but i think that's where shula is best suited.

 

let someone else call the plays and let shula stay down on the sidelines with cam. this would make me very happy...i mean of course if the guy calling the plays doesn't suck.

I actually think Dorsey might be able to help Cam out with this aspect. He's been in those shoes as far as being a successful Championship QB and then struggling at the next level and dealing with those emotions

?? i think shula is best as cam's QB coach. i think he's great at that. i'd rather he concentrated on that on game days and someone else called the plays. how is that a bad thing? i'm not saying he shouldn't be OC here. i'm saying let him be doing what he's great at....working with cam on the sidelines.

I would be lying if i said i wasn't worried about Shula being the new OC.  I want to think we will be OK but even supreme talent can't overcome a badly called game.  Hopefully he is great and these are just baseless worries.

Being OC and QB coach is a bit much. I like Dorsey. Cam and Shula are still going to have plenty of communication.
