Brooks on Panthers: "I know a lot of people that think their defense is a playoff-caliber defense. Luke Kuechly and them are playing well."

 

Brooks on Panthers: "Their offense is at it's best when they can run the ball early and Cam Newton can use play-action to throw down field."

 

Brooks says the Panthers defense has been really good and this season it's almost been like "what can the offense do to help them out some".

 

Brooks says this weekend for St. Louis is a "big game" for the Panthers' playoff chances and head coach Ron Rivera.

 

Brooks: "I think the perception of Cam in Charlotte is skewed...He is still young enough to develop into an elite quarterback."

 

Brooks asks if the Panthers have done all they can to get the best out of Cam. He says they haven't, he says Panthers need more talent on O.

 

Brooks on Cam Newton and critics saying we should look to replace him: "There's not a lot of guys out there that are as talented as him."

 

Brooks picks the Panthers over the Rams this weekend because the Panthers defense is "just a little bit tougher".

 

Brooks: "We talk about Cam Newton but it's like we're giving Sam Bradford a hall pass. He hasn't done anything to think he's a franchise QB"

It was agreat interview and he is a definite must follow on Teitter.

He has a good podcast as well. I think Bucky Brooks will be a regular from here on out.

I hope his speculation about a possible faction that only sees QB as a traditional pocket passer position to be wrong...but I feel it is not.

also some comments about eric ebron (thought it was interesting considering the thread from last night).

 

Brooks on Eric Ebron: "He's one of the most athletic TEs in college football today." Compares him to Jimmy Graham.

 

Brooks on Eric Ebron: "He finally had that breakout game we were all waiting for, now it's whether or not he can sustain it."

 

Brooks on Eric Ebron: "If he keeps this up, he's got star written all over him at the next level."

Bradford has a 90+ qb rating on the year, he's no slouch.

 

His numbers are on par with Cam's.

Numbers do not tell the entire story for Bradford, if you've ACTUALLY watched him play, you can see he's nothing special imo.

Matt Cassel had a 137 QB rating a couple weeks ago against Pittsburgh.. Then we came by and paid him a visit on Sunday.

I didn't say Cam sucked, just that they were roughly on par.

Saying anyone is on par with Bradford is like the same thing as saying he sucks.
