#3024938 Pete Prisco Sings Cam's Praises

Posted by fieryprophet on 17 October 2014 - 01:01 PM

All these Cam accolades make me feel weird. . .

When I sat down to talk with Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last summer, I noticed a real change in him, a maturing man who seemed light years away from the Newton of his first two seasons.

Then again, as some of the recent NFL happenings have reminded us -- like Adrian Peterson -- the small glimpse into the players' football lives only gives us a chance to make snap decisions about who we think they are as people. But when I left the interview with Newton that day, I thought he came off as a more reflective quarterback, one more willing to take on the responsibilities of playing the marquee position in sports.

The notion that he was a player who didn't care, a quarterback who could only succeed in some gimmicked-up offense to take advantage of his legs, with a look-at-me attitude of a player who would never lead a team the right way seemed something he wanted to disprove -- and would disprove.

Fourteen months later, I think we're seeing just that, which is why we are watching a different Newton play quarterback. His numbers aren't outrageously gaudy, but Newton is playing one of heck of a brand of quarterback for the Panthers right now.

Cool yall go there and talk smack behind my back, i would never figure that out.


There's interesting things in All-Pro but stuff just as good for free too.


#3019203 Trent Dilfer audio for those who wanted to here it.

Posted by fieryprophet on 13 October 2014 - 03:08 PM

Why so sensitive?

What is it that Dilfer said that was so wrong? He never knocks Cam or his ability at all and if you hear that it is because that is what you wanted to hear. He discusses the use of Cam and questions if it is sustainable. He mentions that he played for Shula and talks about his coaching tendencies. He even says that if you have a QB that is 6' 5", 240 lbs, and can run like Cam then maybe running him in those situations is what you should do. He said it is different, and he is right.

Look at this stat line and tell me it's not "different" :

Newton 17 Rushes, 107 yds, 1 TD

Whittaker 9 Rushes, 25 yds, 0 TD's

Reaves 8 rushed, 15 yds, 0 TDS.

That's entirely ignoring the real meat of his comments, in that he believed the coaching staff didn't believe in Cam as a passer to win with the game on the line. Which is not remotely true to anyone who watched the game. Did Cam run too much? Sure. Did the coaches not trust his arm? Hell no.


#3017938 If it weren't for that Bengal injury with 6 seconds left in the 4th quart...

Only because of the delay dude, we were nowhere near lined up at 6 secs before they stopped the clock


Watch the effing film. We were lined up before they even blew the whistle.

See, threads like this is why it's impossible to take the Huddle seriously. So much overreaction and focusing on irrelevant issues when the actual problems get completely overlooked because they'd require having more than rudimentary understanding of football.




#3017803 Who played FB today?

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 09:38 PM

Brandon Williams and Ed Dickson. Mostly Dickson.




#3017601 Us sucking D on Defense, is it the coaches or the talent?

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 08:33 PM

Talent. We were designed to be a pass rushing team. We have no pass rush. It's as simple as that.




#3016473 "Ron Rivera and the Panthers wasted a brilliant performance by Cam" -...

There is so much IQ in this thread. If you take mine out at least 4 points of IQ.


#3016361 All of this outrage over a tie. This is what you should be outraged over.

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 04:42 PM

Dirty play? Color me shocked /s


#3016165 Graham Gano Discussion

That kickoff is the coverage team's fault. Nobody kicks them all out.


#3016139 You Don't Go For It?

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 04:26 PM

But a tie is as good as a loss. We just had a coach play for the tie over a win.


A tie is better than a loss. A tie is what got the Packers to the playoffs.


#3016094 Really? Fire rivera?

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 04:23 PM

I honestly wonder if some of you should be allowed to live alone.


#3015981 No confidence against GB

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 04:16 PM

How did our team do a 360? We seriously turned back into the 2011 Panthers


360 puts you back where you started.


#3015974 No confidence against GB

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 04:16 PM

You all are not watching these games. Green Bay has played great in stretches and awful in others.


#3015944 You Don't Go For It?

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 October 2014 - 04:14 PM

Why put yourself into a chance to lose when you have a chance to tie. . .which happened?
