MMQB Cam should be more like Brees

Read this earlier. While I completely agree that Newton definitely needs to be more consistent with his footwork (which affects his accuracy and always leads to 3-4 WTF throws per game), I think his pocket awareness is pretty good and I disagree with Benoit in that it seems like he thinks Newton isn't good at reading the field. I thought it was a bit disingenuous for him to pick an example from Week 1 about his ability to read the field (against a great D and with a new OC and QB coach's system to implement). 
 
Newton's gotten progressively better at reading the field as the season has gone on and as he's gotten more comfortable with Shula's playcalling and his own ability to audible and directly contribute to the offensive gameplan (I'm reminded of this great article by FO comparing Kap and Cam and their ability to go through their progressions: http://www.footballoutsiders.com/film-room/2013/film-room-kaepernick-newton). 
 
The breakdown between static and hybrid defenses was really interesting though. Definitely the next step in Newton's growth is being able to decipher disguised pre-snap coverages as those definitely give him the most trouble. But I would think in general those types of coverages are the ones that give most QBs in the league the most trouble.

 

 

Cam's pocket awareness is pretty damn good! Isn't Brees like 10 years older than Cam?

Yeah, I responded in the comments. It's readily apparent he didn't pay much attention to the schematic demands of the Carolina offense or the circumstances surrounding some of our games.

 

Nice response, hit on some things I left out such as how the O-Line was more overwhelmed than Cam with the pressure in these "hybrid" games

A somehwat reasonable article that seems to fail to consider the significant strides he's made during the course of this season... e.g. he used an interception thrown during the Seattle game as an example.  No one here would deny that Cam can improve his accuracy and consistency (both things that he's made big improvements on this year), but saying that he needs to be like Drew Brees is inaccurate.  Saying that he needs to continue the same skills that Brees has developed is a much better way of putting it. 

 

Cam didn't throw an interception against Seattle. That pass he used as an example of a bad throw hit Olsen in the chest, he just dropped it. It was actually a mind-boggling throw.

Gotta Love The Media, and their various takes. 

 

When Andrew Luck's Teammates Deliver, "they finally stepped up and helped him". It's never Luck (or other QB's) issue. They're isolated from it.

 

However, when Cam's teammates finally step up, "Cam is now maturing and realizing he doesn't have to do everything by himself".  Huh? Notice the difference/viewpoints? They put it on Cam; alluding to the fact, that HE WAS HOLDING HIS TEAMMATES BACK, and not vice versa. 

 

You'll know what I mean, if you saw First Take This morning, and seeing the "Cam's maturing", and realizing he doesn't have to do it all by himself card" card being repeatedly played. None of these guys really watch or research/understand the Panthers, based off their discussions. SMH

 

It's always something.

I honestly only skimmed that part here at work due to the giant pics, but I remember the throw now.  Edited the BS out of my post.
