Cam can't read defenses- Cam Newton Presser

please more stories of this guy. this is hilarious

 

his all time favorite player was matt moore and a few people have speculated that they actually might be pals IRL which is why he was so vehemently defensive of him.

 

one of his honest-to-god opinions was that moore is a more productive, efficient quarterback than cam and is more fit to be a long term NFL starter.  of course cam has long since left him in the dust but this was 2011 when he could sort of make the numbers work.

 

oh yeah and he was similar to bwood in the sense that he was a california panthers fan and that was seemingly the only thing he liked about the region or the east coast for that matter.

I always find it humorous, when I hear "Cam can't read defenses", when it's clear that "celebrated" guys like Griffin and Kaepernick, are much worse, and therefore protected in their offensive schemes because of it. Luck is not that great either. But at least he, Cam and Tannenhill have earned what ever they got (and therefore don't put up the efficient numbers of a RG3, Kaepernick or Wilson did last year). I've always liked those three and Wilson, more than I've liked RG3 and Kaepernick. 

 

It's amusing to view Huddler's carp on and on about Cam's short and intermediate throws (which he can certainly improve on) as well. Do Huddler's realize, guys like Eli Manning are so bad at it, the Giants don't even throw screens and similar passes for the past several years. It's a rarity/curse word with them. Lol. That's how bad Eli Manning is with screens, being a Gun Slinger type. Are some here even aware of this (along with Eli's inconsistent play, even during his Supe Bowl winning years)?

 

And of course, all QB's make mistakes, start of slow; have good and bad patches, etc.. That's the nature of the game. But Cam seems to be the only one many Huddler's think is like that. Of course Ron Rivera doesn't help any, by not giving his QB chances to win/close out games (like last week against Buffalo), leaving bitter memories while the Panthers lose, instead of erasing them with sweet victory. 

 

For example: Luck didn't do much on Sunday, in the Colts victory (is was mostly the defense and run game). He did his job basically. Nothing special. However, he'll get all the credit, accolades and spoils that come with the victory. So his performance (or 167 or so yds) won't be scrutinized in the least (along with being the "chosen one" in many media's eyes). Good for him! I'm not hating. 

 

The point is: Cam can certainly improve. No argument there. But I think many Huddler's need perspective, and are way out of line on their expectations and criticisms of Cam. This is especially true, if they actually watched other teams and QB's (IMHO) as they say they do. The games have an ebb and flow (Peyton Manning not withstanding). Lol And even Manning, will have bad throws, games or stretches--as he has. No one is ever perfect through out, especially a Gun Slinger type, with Mediocre receivers who usually don't fight for, come back to the ball, or make incredible catches to save him/make Cam look good, as others appear to do routinely for their QB's. And od course, coaching means a great deal as well. However, I've always/already beaten that dead horse. 

 

Sometimes I wonder if many Huddler's have ever watched other QB's/Games  in the NFL besides Cam and The Panthers??

Speaking of "erractic mechanics,' did you see Luck's imitation of The Golden Calf of Bristol this past Sunday? Oh I forgot, the media isn't making much of Luck's mechanics so no one is really focused like you are with everything Cam. SMDH

By the way, he practically threw the ball into the dirt but, as usual, the receiver was blamed because Luck is the 'choosen' QB. SMDH


Oh please, I'm a Newton fanatic but even I know he's got to improve his mechanics in order to be more consistent in the pocket. A QB shouldn't be throwing off his back foot -- likely a reason why Cam tends to overthrow.

I don't care what Luck does quite honestly. He's not my QB. Ima let Colt fans worry about Andrew living up to Peyton's legacy (which he won't).

This is all I was saying- that and the TD wasn't a "great" read.

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.


Didn't take long for the Cam haters to build the ol' "Well YOU think Cam is perfect!" strawman in this thread.

I thought for sure it would be Squirrel to do it first, but it wasn't. So congrats go out to JOAT for his quick and efficient strawman building skills! He knocks that dirty strawman RIGHT DOWN with the quickness too!

A guy I have passionately supported since his name was called in Radio City Music Hall. A guy I've continuously defended on here and other boards.

A guy, who despite his greatness, still has things that he needs to improve upon.

Wipe his jiz off your chin and accept he isn't perfect and isn't as good as he's going to get, yet.


Aren't you a little old to be making jizz jokes on the internet JOAT? Funny a mod gave you pie for that.

You've been back on this since the Buffalo loss. Back tracking now doesn't change that.

Truth hurts- my age has nothing to do with it,.

 

I've been back on what? Cam's fallibility? I've been on that since we drafted him, just like every other player we have. I'm not a nut hugger so it's not an issue for me to point out that a player isn't perfect. I'm not too jaded by fandom to realize that he makes mistakes, has room for improvement and is simply lacking in some areas. It's not that I support him any less, it's just the realization that he's still growing.

 

If you, or the rest of the fanboys can't see it that's not my problem.

Low hanging fruit. God forbid you point out deficiency...

So first it was sexual references, now it's nut huggers and fanboys. What's next on the cliche insult list?

 

There is a difference between popping into a thread and offering legitimate insight into our quarterback or any other player, versus entering like Squirrel and dropping what you perceive to be witty one liners and leaving.

i didn't give him pie for the jizz comment.

 

i gave him pie because i remember very well arguing with him and several others prior to cam getting drafted and at at one point either JOAT or i made some silly little bet (maybe an avy or sig bet) whether or not we would draft him. i was sure we would and wanted it. i forgot about it until he reminded me after the draft and said i won. i laughed a bit because i really didn't remember anything about it and since i didn't remember and didn't care, i let him off the hook, but the reason i did so wasn't because he was saying it was a mistake that we drafted him, because he didn't say that. the reason i let him off the hook was because he said that even tho he didn't like the pick, cam was now his QB so he was now going to respect the pick and support his QB and i've seen nothing since that point that says any different.

 

pointing out a flaw doesn't show a lack of respect or support for a player.

 

i believe that people can change their minds about things and i don't have a problem with it. we all do it. it's called growth and progress. if you don't ever change your mind about something then you've got issues.

 

most people who argued about the cam newton pick have got on board with it. i don't have a problem with them doing it and i don't have a problem with them pointing out deficiencies.

 

i just think it's funny that people hang on like a pit bull to people's past when those people have moved on. seems like everyone should be able to because more than likely they have moved on from something before themselves.
