Cam can't read defenses- Cam Newton Presser

Recommended Posts



As much as I would love to jump on the they hate him because he's black man mantra...In truthfulness ESPN and those in the sports media, endless attack on Cam's character had more to do with Urban Meyer and less to do with his skin color. .

 

Remember it was Meyer's Assistance Coach from UF, who was the Cordinator for the MSU football team during that time and wanted Cam to attend MSU. The Agent who enticed Cam's father with money, was an MSU Alumni and was scouting Cam not long after he left UF and while he was attending the smaller college.

 

It was well documented that Cam's father knew Meyer and the Assistance coach quite well from Cam days at UF. Also, the same Agent was in the news during the whole ESPN created pay-for-play scandal because he was in trouble with the NFL and had a reputation for trying to lurer potentonal young football players to the schools of his choice either by pressuring them or enticing them but ESPN completely ignored that side of the Agent because they were more going after Cam and his father.

 

It was always suspected that Meyer was the one who sold out Cam and many felt those at ESPN used their power in the media to soil Cam and Auburn because Meyer and Saban were very close to the ESPN family. Those close to the story said that it was Meyer who directed a Sport Writer and well known Auburn hater, to the lap-top story when the writer went looking for dirt on Cam at UF. Meyer quickly denied it when asked by, u guessed it, one of the ESPN Host.

 

If anyone paid attention to Cam's stat during the 2011 draft, they would have seen that he was/ is a very bright young man who simply lacked throwing experience. Out of all of the QBs from his class, he had the least amount of throwing in experience but he was extremely talented and hardworking.  He achieved quite a bit in a very short period of time after leaving UF. His so call accuracy issues was manufactured and in reality pushed as a way to cover up for the QB who actually did have serious accuracy issues and problems reading defense, Blaine Gabbert.  Those in the sports media who were attacking Cam, knew that but Blaine was their chosen QB of that class after Luck decided not to join the draft that year. So, those at ESPN and NFLN simply played down Blaine's QB issues, while magnifying everything Cam did and turned it into him not being "good enough."

Keekly is better at reading offenses than Newton is at reading defenses.

Dude shut the fug up and get out of here.

So if ESPN hates Cam because he's black how do you explain Kaep, Wilson and RG3's constant spotlight?

I don't like ESPN, but that argument just doesn't hold water.

Speaking of Cam's so called footwork issues that some of you love to harp on endlessly. I was watching NFLN recap of all the games last night and they were recapping the Pathers/Giants game. One of the Analyst simply marveled at Cam's brute strength. He stated that the ball Cam throw to LaFell in the endzone for a TD was off his backfoot. So, there u go.

Because he's capable of making an occasional nice throw off his back foot it means he doesn't have footwork issues?

Which throw, by the way?

Cam's footwork remains an issue at times, but that doesn't mean he isn't a very good quarterback in this league already.  That being said, he stepped into and drove some balls down field really nicely yesterday.

 

Dude isn't perfect, big fuging deal.  Nobody is.

A player of the caliber of Newton doesn't deserve a thread topic like that next to his name. Even if used in a positive way. So disrespectful. If Cam and his family are smart they'd get him out of this market at the end of his contract. The south can stick with their clausens and andersons.

Now if he can fix his problem with staring receivers down. 

 

 

 

Amazingly enough, NFL defensive coordinators and NFL defensive backs have yet to notice and take advantage of Cam's secret weakness that you confidently continue to proclaim.

 

So, for the good of the Panthers, bro, eep-kay it on the own-low-day.

How shocking to see Squirrel trolling up a Cam thread. Looks like JOAT is back to his old ways from 2011 too.

If by "old ways" you mean I'm not so blinded by love for ANY one player as to completely ignore their faults then you're right.

Wide open WR = great read.

Right because if you actually watch the video, the safety SHOULD have dropped back to cover Ginn. Cam READ the safety coming up and he hit Ginn in stride.

Which resulted in a wide open Ginn.

It was a read you'd hope any QB could make. Pre-snap you see your really fast guy in single coverage with a single high safety. You know AE had a deep in cut, the safety has to play one or the other.

Cam did a good job. He made the correct read and delivered a perfect pass. But I think calling it a "great" read is overkill. It was a very basic play.
