What's the difference in Panthers QB accuracy vs Cleveland's QB's

58 posts in this topic

We're talking about this because Cam is in his 3rd yr as a pro and through training camp and preseason so far Cam's throwing is poo. Meanwhile I'm watching highlights of guys like Brees and Brady carve up offenses with a surgical knife. That's why.

 

Yes, we should compare Cam to 10 year vets. What's Paytons stats while we are at it.

because it's our franchise quarterback.  all eyes should be on him; fua to a lesser extent.  3 years in the league shouldn't guarantee you a spot, nor should it prohibit coaching scrutiny.

 

i just think the OP makes a valid point, is all.

 

 

So what you're saying is that due to his preseason passing accuracy in meaningless games, cam's spot shouldn't be guaranteed? Really? Are you serious?

So after two preseason games with very vanilla play calling and no game planning, Cam's spot isn't guaranteed and he sucks? Sounds legit guys to me guys. We better go ahead and trade him now while he still has value.

Shrug I hear ya buuuuuuut its preseason.

 

No look I think the problem is this, Cam has got new targets and I think he is being urged to look for them more than Smitty. I think you can do things like that in preseason, feel things out, but when it comes to week1 theres not going to be any of that. He's going to go straight to who he trusts instinctively. He has to build those instincts somewhere. There's gonna be timing mishaps and errors while he's learning to play with other guys. . . and he's not Drew Brees, he's Cam Newton.

If he didn't have a history of sucking in the preseason then turning around and averaging 4k yards when it matters, I'd worry more.

 

Cam is never going to be a surgeon. He has, however, been one of the better chunk/deep ball passers in the league since being drafted.

simple reading comprehension would reveal that your interpretation wasn't the point of my post.  stop intentionally trying to misread it.  plain and simple:  cam hasn't been accurate, and it is cause for concern.

First I have not narrowed this down to Cam, it seems like every box score i read for the nfl has a starter or backup with 60-70% accuracy.

Brady was damn near perfect, so was Vick, and EJ Manuel was 10-12. This seems to indicate that a system has been implemented that works for the player.

Alex Smith had the highest qb rating of his career under Harbaugh, but he sucked under other coaches.

I feel what your saying but the person he trust the most is who he is overthrowing the most. He our QB and he not going anywhere but it does make your head scratch he doesn't miss by a little but by a lot when he misses see below). And no I am not a hater. I love this team and my QB

How is it a cause for concern? Cam has always played bad in the preseason. It's not as if he doesn't have a history for it. His regular season accuracy ratings are 60.0 and 57.7 for his first two seasons. How the fug do you look at his regular season stats and say that what he is doing in the preseason is a cause for concern. Jesus people on this forum are dumb as poo.
