Cam Newton Underrated, Double Trouble Overrated according to everyone's favorite CBS Sportswriter

I have no problem with Pete Priscoe. 

 

Yeah, he didn't expect much from the Panthers last year, infuriating many a Panther fan.

 

However, he had his reasons ('Panthers would take a step back in 2012, before they take a step forward in 2013'), and seems to follow/be aware of the team way more than many national writers and broadcasters. 

 

Double trouble, may very well be overrated in certain respects. However, that doesn't mean that they can't be effective or a valuable tool in the Panthers offense of 2013. 

 

Considering what they both get paid, and what's expected of them (along with who the team/offensive leader is), they are/would be overrated by most standards!!

Overrated doesn't mean 'no talent' in this case. Its more about how much they're paid vs how much they're used/production.


But to me that's more "overpayed" than "overrated"

Panther fan frustrations with Prisco's coverage of the team date back to way before 2012.

A QB that throws into the ground when he has an open receiver, and can not win in the 4th quarter is not " under rated "  ..Doubletrouble is in serious decline ...Not looking real good for the Pantys in 2013 ...

Our RB's are underused not overrated. Stewart is a top 10 back on any other team. They are still by far the most talented back field in the game. The struggle is balancing their carries with the passing game and Cam's running threat as well.


This is 100% accurate.

They are a nasty RB duo. They are just overpaid and under used for the scheme that we are likely to run. This is not their fault, but is Hurney's fault.

I believe we will run much more this season and they will prove to be very valuable. You could justify one if them at their cap hit...just not both.

I have a feeling that Barner is gonna have a breakout year and somebody is going to be seeing some serious time on the bench. Nothing against Double Trouble, but I feel there time has passed. Barner my have an Arian Foster type year.

Our O-line is over-rated. Cam faced constant pressure and our talented backs were mauled in the backfield way too much. What does it say when we are relying on a late draft pick in Kugbilla to save the day?

 

Additionally, our entire defense is under-rated. Yes, they sucked at the beginning of the year, but they played much better once Kueckly took over the MLB spot and the coaches stopped being overly passive. Best of all, we used two early draft picks and some impressive free agency depth to make our defense even better.

 

I suspect the offense will struggle more than most expect while the D shines.

Cam got sacked the same percentage of times as luck. Both around 6.5%. It isn't because of their lack of mobility. If our oline can stay healthy we will be fine tho.

I hope you are right when you say our o-line "will be fine", but you seem to acknowledge the need for them to stay healthy because of a lack of depth along the o-line. Our defense on the other hand, has lots of depth and can withstand injuries. Having Hangman on the field with Kugbilla as his backup says it all for me. Expecting Kalil to return as the same force as before is suspect and Gross is definitely going downhill fast.
