I noticed last week when Cam escaped pressure and got outside the pocket he made a throw downfield that was no where close to it's intended target.  I also remember during the preseason he rolled out and threw down field to an open Smith and damn near threw a pick over Smith's head.  It got me thinking, is throwing on the run just not a strength of Cam's?

 

You would think the Panthers would try to utilize bootlegs and movement to help negate the poor blocking at times as well as slowing down the rush.  But we rarely do this.  I know Cam has made great passes on the run at times but I just don't think it's his forte.  Watching Wilson tonight made me realize how ineffective Cam is at making these throws.  Other QB's who are good at this include Aaron Rodgers, Big Ben, and Steve Young was probably one of the best, it just adds a different dynamic to their games.

 

So to review, not bashing Cam, just wondering if anyone else noticed this and if you had clips from games that could disprove it and make me feel differently.

I distinctly remember a perfectly placed touchdown throw he made to Steve Smith on the run against Oakland last year.

He's made some pretty nice throws while on the run / escaping defenders as well.

Your memory is selective.

It isn't his best attribute, he is better in the pocket, but he has made lots of plays throwing outside the pocket on the move.

That was a pretty pass.

 

Cam throwing on the run is not a strength like it is for Wilson (all the baseball helped that) but I wouldn't call it a glaring weakness. 

 

Panthers win the next three ball games and Cam will be the best <fill in the blank> in the league and your nitpicking (along with mine) will go the way of the dinosaur.

I've never seen Wilson effortlessly sling a 60-yard bomb with the flick of a wrist either.  Oh well.

He's not bad, not great/amazing.

 

Wilson can make some insane throws on the run. A lot of people say they are just miracle throws but when he's been doing it consistently you can't deny the kid has a knack for it.

 

I'll keep saying it if we didn't have Cam I would want RW.

Yeah I can't pull up the highlight on my phone, but I remembered it because at the time I said "wow, that was a hell of a pass". Overall I think Cam can make any kind of throw you ask him to, he's just had to work on doing it consistently, but he's definitely learning.
