Carolina Panthers ‏@Panthers

Gettleman on Cam: "He's had the best first two seasons of any QB...the elephant in the room is the win-loss record...now it's time win."

 

 

Jonathan Jones ‏@jjones9

RT @josephperson: Asked Dave Gettleman whether Cam is QB to build future on. After a long pause, he said "Yes, but now it's time to win."

 

 

Joe Person ‏@josephperson

But said the elephant in the room is Cam W-L record. 13-19.

I agree with him. This has been obvious to everyone.

 

The issue is having a complete team surrounding the quarterback. Which is the job of the GM.

Straight to the point. It's about his record now and not his individual accomplishments.

Wins and losses are all that matters. Cam is the QB of the future, we just need a decent O-line to help protect him.

Obvious statement is obvious.

 

Sounds like Gettleman is pushing Cam.  Doubt he would say the same thing about Rivera to the media

People are gonna overreact to this. Yes he needs to start winning obviously but lets remember he inherited one of the worst teams in NFL history. I still don't think he can realistically be expected to win more than 8 games with the team this year. O-Line has all kinds of concerns and our receiving core is average at best

Sure. But I hardly believe he's foolish enough to pin our losing record from the last two years on Cam.

I dont know how much there is to discuss on this. 

 

 

He is right, we know he is right.  

 

Cam is never going to appreciate til this TEAM wins.  Fair or unfair, just the way it is.

Interesting that he said yes after a long pause. Probably meaningless, but I hope we take a giant leap forward this year in terms if wins, so I don't have to spend an offseason listening to a bunch of "rabble rabble derp is Gettleman gonna draft his own franchise QB derp rabble". I really, really don't want to listen to that poo for an entire offseason.

No problem with his statement- needed to be said.  But the message applies to the whole team (players & coaches), and they know it.

yeah this too. And coaches. If Ron lets Cam get those inches in ATL on 4th last yr is it a different season?

Winning is a team stat....not a QB stat.

Gettlemen loses points on this one with me. You gonna talk about wins and losses as the front office....you don't just put your QB out there in the talk. Not one who has had the team on back making is competitive

Cam needs to produce wins one way or the other if he wants a big pay day -

Its not the sentiment that bothers me per se as much as its an NFL GM is perpetuating the very flawed idea that a QB is the only reason for a W-L record.
