Maybe Cam should be like some of the other QBs, like Brew Brees, and pad his QBR stats by throwing no matter what. But folks would be labeling him as "selfish and me first." Funny how that works....
Rivera will never allow Cam to do that.
That's another thing with Cam: All/Most of his stats are EARNED. That's more than what you can say, about so many of other QB's, especially the "Young Guns".
The Panthers have been in the overwhelming majority of their games (many will say, because of Cam's presence), despite their losing record. And we all know, since Cam's first year (when the team was involved in high scoring games, and had no expectations) Rivera will always slow down the offense in the second half with the scantest of leads. Too many times, Cam will have 150 yds in the first half (OAK 2012, for ex), to end the second half with 70 or so, cause Rivera wants to take the air out the ball, cause he feels a 7-13 pt lead is enough to start the half. SMH
And the few blow outs that the Panthers experienced (either way), Rivera will take Cam out.
Imagine how many more yards, wins and TDs (even), if Cam had an offensive minded coach??
