Does Brady have better receivers than Newton? No. I wonder how he seems to make everyone around him better but Cam needs better players to make him look better. Doesn't Brees seem to take guys you never heard of as receivers and suddenly they are great guys only to disappear when they go elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, Cam is going to be a great quarterback but the whole notion he doesn't have any weapons or that we built the team on the defensive side while ignoring the offense is ignorant. Look at our trades and free agent pickups the past couple of year, if not to account for injuries, the majority have been on the offensive end.
However, Cam needs time (i.e., a good line, OC, and play calling).
Brady is generally awful, when he has no time to throw, with defenders in his face. However (as we all know), he's brilliant, when he has time, or gets rid of the ball quickly, on a planned timing route or dump off.
I agree. The Panthers receivers are a better than we think. But there's also not that great as well (unless people like Williams, Ginn, etc., step up). They're not going to be successful if several things don't click well. They're not AUTOMATIC good. No! Nonetheless, a great QB, like Cam during his rookie season, can make the entire offense look good, which we hope is the case in 2013. But he needs help.
We have to remember: Even after their slow start, the Panthers had excellent advanced statistics on offense in 2012. They just didn't get the ball enough. That was their problem. So I applaud the offense, for trying to score quicker (or at least adding it to the offense) for 2013.
Let's hope the defense, does their part as well.
