This is Cam's best season so far, maybe not statistically, but in a lot of other ways I see a young QB really, really improving.  Remember how raw he was when we drafted him, and remember how little time he had in college.  He has improved so much, and I'm so glad I was so very wrong about drafting him. 
 
For all of you crowing about how he isn't improving, watch his progressions, his ball placement, the way he adjusts the velocity of his throws.  He's making smart decisions with the ball and with his legs on most plays, and though he still seems to sometimes get caught by delayed blitzes, he's playing grown by leaps and bounds.  His footwork has improved substantially since he entered the league and you can see it in where the ball is being delivered.  I'm glad he's learning to take what the defense is giving him, too.
 
Props go out to our receivers and coaches for both stepping up as well, which I think they have overall, I'm not trying to take away from them, but Cam has DEFINITELY improved. He may not put up the same kind of raw yardage totals he did his rookie campaign but this offense is built to win differently now.
 
I'm so excited to see him continue to grow this season and for years to come.  Go Panthers!

Not a bad game for Cam at all.  Only issue today is he needs to throw the ball away if he has nothing down field.

Yes, he has been limiting his mistakes. I have noticed improvement every season, as expected. Some seasons just took a few games to get going.

It's not just about this game, but this season.  He did have a bad game earlier this season, but honestly, he's been pretty damn good overall this season, and he's really coming on.  Most of the question marks I had for him early in his career are disappearing.

 

I'm glad he's silencing critics and showing people he can answer and win.  Really pumped for the rest of this season - never thought being .500 would feel so good =P

he was awesome as a rookie, but he was raw.  doesn't change the fact he was a special talent that year and had a bright future.

I thought he played one of his best games ever. It was a tough and ugly game and he played his best when it started getting really chippy in the second half. The Rams sold out to stop the run, and Cam made them pay for it.

It's amazing how a QB can look good when his receivers actually catch passes (minus the drop from Smith; The other was a hail Mary to end the half), with decent play calling to make up for the OL deficiencies. . 

 

Cam can/could always  make the plays, reads and the throws. He just needs help, from somebody!!

Cam was very good today both through the air and on the ground. I was impressed with his passes.

15/17 for 204 yards, 12 YPA , 1 touchdown, and 26 on the ground. He took what the defense gave him. Smart football.
