I have never once said anything negative about Cam Newton, but...

He scrambled on every single sack, I'm pretty sure. You should reformulate your little bullet list.

 

Usually when Cam does scramble this season, he does it after holding on to the ball forever and then FINALLY taking off, often being caught behind the line for a sack.

SMF, you'll never change the minds of the Cam groupies so stop trying. They use him for their avatar or even make their user name after him. They'll never, ever, be able to see that he MAY not be the answer.

 

That is all you're saying. He MAY not be. They'll always think he is the answer.

 

Don't waste your time.

How many of those sacks are avoided by a better QB that gets rid of the ball faster? Like 4 right?

 

Maybe, assuming you even see or sense them coming, and/or someone is open.  If I were Cam, I'd assume there's a high probability of getting blindsided on every play.  But, I am not disagreeing with you in principle - just saying a crappy performance on the part of the O line isn't helping.  I've been clamoring for more short passes and two TE sets since early last year.  Slice 'em and dice 'em.

Don't agree. We're not letting him play to his strengths and that is coaching.

Did he make mistakes? Yes.

But the only questions i really have about him right now is how much autonomy the coaches are giving him... I don't think he's allowed to audible at all and I don't think they prefer him to make multiple reads. That leads me to question whether it is because he can't do it well or they just won't let him.

Announcers said today he audibles a lot. He has more control than ever.

3 options when pressured:

 

- Hold on to the ball longer: Sack, negative yardage

- Throw ball away: 0 yards lost

- Scramble: Mixed bag, usually positive yardage

 

With a bad offensive line, Cam needs to go to Options 2 and 3 way more often. So tired of him holding on to the ball forever and taking a big sack which kills all momentum from a great drive.

You sir don't know football they were spying him. Which means nowhere to scramble. You have to stand in the pocket and trust your wrs to get open and believe your line will hold up. Not his fault neither happened.

For what it's worth, Rodney Harrison just said we should change qbs too.

Then throw the ball away. That's what every great QB does. No shame in it. 2nd and 10 way better than 2nd and 17.

To be fair even with a spy Cam can juke and stiff arm and not to mention run over many LB's for atleast a few years.

Yeah you're right he was really bad today getting blitzed every down and having his WRs drop balls thrown right at them and being literally the only bright spot n our offense.

Stop making excuses for his poor play. He was terrible today, he was terrible against buffalo and was terrible for long stretches of the Seattle game. He wasn't very good for 2/3 of last season either. Time is running out and so are the excuses.

Yes, let's blame Can - one of the few bright spots in this debacle.
