Cam Newton poised for breakout year - ESPN

92 posts in this topic

But, there are still those on here who think Cam should be a RB disguised as a QB.

 

Who thinks that? Let's find out who they are so we can all laugh at them. 

 

I've seen Cam make many throws that a lot of other QBs can't make.

I'm pretty sure Cam's breakout year was 2011.

this.

 

but.....it could be said that the best is yet to come and 2011 and the end of last year was only a glimpse of what is to come.

 

if he hasn't yet actually broken out....hold on to your hats.

That being said, Cam must have built in run plays to keep the defense honest with their pass rush.

 

Agree that he needs "some" running plays to keep the defense honest and exploit them.

 

But, Chud DID run him way too much early on last year.

true and they don't need to be scarce, either. they need to happen enough that defenses always have to be expecting it.

 

i don't think they should cut way back on his goal line carries, either. he's just too good at that. cutting back some would be wise, but just like everything else...the more he does it, the more defenses will be anticipating it and that only opens things up for other options (which should be used more than cam himself carrying the ball).

Actually, just the threat of Cam running accomplishes the same thing.

While the threat is equally as efficient at keep d-lineman and blitzers at bay, if Cam doesn't scramble some or run an option type play a few times a game we are missing on some serious home run opportunities.

Read option a couple times a game and scrambling when the pass protection breaks down is EXACTLY the amount that I would like to see next season.
