Everyone should take note of who is saying what. As someone already pointed out, the same folks claiming that we don't need a #1 WR, passing game isn't important, attempting to have an explosive offensive should be secondary are the exact same people in December/January complaining that Cam did not throw for 300 yards, and the offense is only putting up 10 points.
They will be the first to throw Newton under the bus and question whether he the long term solution at QB.
How do I know this? Go back to last off season. All throughout the the summer when folks were complaining about the lack of talent on offense, that Cam needed more help, they said we had the personnel to have a top 10 offense. Of course, once September hit, "Newton is a bum."
Come September, if Newton is not throwing for 300 yards and putting up 30 points, these same people now talking about having a run first, control the clock offense, will be screaming: how come can't Newton be like Rodgers? And suggesting it is time to trade Newton for picks.
