A sprinkle here or there is fine.

If it is the mainstay of our offense.... its going to be a long season.

It was only sprinkled in during most of Cam's 32 games here in Carolina. Shula knows it works and knows Cam likes it

If any of you have had a rotator cuff tear, you know how painful it is. Its hard to imaging a guy playing defensive line like that. Its also a degenerative injury and will get worse as the season progresses and it tears more.

 

You can barely raise your arms above your head for the pain.  No batted down passes from him this year, bank on it.

Wagner most not be paying attention that no QB in NFL history has more passing yards than Newton to start off his career.....he isn't your standard "running QB". Sure he is inconsistent at times but few runners have ever had the passing ability Newton does at this level

Yes, and after a while of movement it just stays sore all over. I wonder how much pain meds he will be on.

Seattle won't be able to get much pass rush (they'll get some because, you know, Byron Bell), so I suspect Cam will be able to put the ball on target. The question in my eyes is how much separation our Non-Smith pass catchers can get.

It'd be especially wonderful if the ball catching versions of Ted Ginn and Brandon LeFell show up.

If Shula has complety ditched the read option, then he's truly as bad as I have feared.

it has to be just enough that the other team is forced to expect it and keep a spy on him. this takes one player out of play, essentially. i think it was a fine strategy for someone like vick who wasn't a total package Qb who could throw the ball. for someone like cam who can really stretch the field and who has smitty commanding double coverage, olsen who is just flat dangerous to them, lafell who is just plain respectable, and a guy like ginn going long...yeah i'll take that. their defense is going to be spread thin.

 

it really sounds like, tho, that they are more concentrated on him running and are more focused on stopping it. this only opens things up for other options. i love that they don't trust his arm.

If I were Cam, Wagner's comment would piss me off. Bulletin board material for sure.

We simply need LaFell, Olsen or one of the mix of guys at #3 to have a coming out party IMO to win.

RBs and Smitty can't win this one IMO. It will be won elsewhere

Spot on.

Couldn't agree more. It needs to be used to keep the D off balance and guessing, not as our bread and butter.
