For those of you who have been waiting, today is the day the Panthers are one of the teams featured on the NFL channel inside training camp special.
Talking about going 5-1 down the stretch and saving Rivera's job, thanks to the offense scoring just under 30 points per game in that stretch.
Cam Newton will have a lot of input on the offense, just as Breesus, Manning, Brady etc.
The question is no longer how, but how many. Cam needs to get at least 9 wins or someone else will be coaching the Panthers next year.
Shula transitioning from QB coach to offensive coordinator will help the offense. Under Chud they threw too much in Cams first year, and in his second year they ran the spread way to much, both resulting in 2-8 starts. They should play a lot better early under Shula's offensive scheme.
People forget about Cam because of the other rookie quarterbacks. Cam was a victim of the sophomore slump. But still racked up over 7,000 yards. Steve Smith caught all of them.
The success of the Panthers will not be with Steve Smith or LaFell, but with the 3rd receiver next to Greg Olsen. Sharp thinks Armanti Edwards can be that guy. A good 3/4th WR makes your offense even more dynamic. That position is a concern with the Panthers.
The Panthers running backs did not have success with the zone. Cam was the leading running back. Hunting and pecking, trying to find the right thing has hurt the offense. The traditional offense should immensely help. The Panthers will traditionally run the football. Shula is going to create an identity of running and play action passing. Should be explosive.
One on One chat with Cam newton coming up.
Cam speech Recap via CarolinaPanthers8789:
Cam addressed the towel thing echoing what we already knew... he got it from MJ.
Cam said his next goal is to trust his teammates, mentioned Smitty, D-Will, and Stew.
Cam said there is no certain number... "Just Win". Cam said on e they find their identity they will be rolling.
NFLN are saying that ability wise Cam Newton is a top five quarterback and has a chance to be the best, but he needs help.
All NFLN analysts (except for that troll David Jeremiah) said that they believe Carolina is a playoff team.
