It's funny how this forum responds to any negative criticism of Cam. All of OP's thoughts are reasonable.
Reasonable? Based on what? Is Cam perfect? No. Does he throw off his back foot at times? Yes. Does he make bad decisions at times? Yes.
But so what? Anyone who's actually watched quarterback play will see that every quarterback alive does these things to varying degrees. Nobody's remotely close to perfect, even the QBs OP thinks Cam has to be compared to. Brady's deep ball has abandoned him, Peyton can't throw a deep out to save his life, Rodgers uses his mobility just as much as Cam does to extend plays, Brees is mortal outside of a dome, Andrew Luck makes even dumber decisions than Cam but has a horseshoe lodged in his rectum, etc. etc.
Is Cam a franchise quarterback? Yes, by a factor of a billion.
The fact that someone even asks the question shows their obvious ignorance on what a franchise quarterback looks like.
So, if I come off as judgmental and anal about the topic; well, it's because I am a raging asshole and DGAF. And I'm right.
I am just looking at some old games ( 2012 and 2013). Looking at him, his is still making and struggling with the same issues. I know I shouldn't, but I always compare every QB to Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, they hardly get sacked. This is not because their O-lines are that great, but because they feel when pressure is near. Cam is still getting sacked when sometimes he can avoid. It is still frustrating to see him as a thrower. He is an extremely inconsistent and streaky. His mechanics are poor with him throwing off his back foot and unbalanced causing the ball to sail high. I guess is this why they drafted the 6'5'' Kelvin B. I tend to wonder if the front office is sold on him as the future , because Im not. This has to be his make or break year. Love Cam as a person, the best thing that could happen to the Charlotte area, but not my choice for the future. I really like Blake Bortles , I see the Jags going somewhere with him. Thanks for your views and replies.
Georgia's offense is less spread than traditional pro style. Bobo ran a facade of a spread offense while Murray was there. Anyway...
Hill has been a bust of epic proportions, much like Greg Little. King hasn't had that opportunity. Why do people think that the Jets acquired Decker and drafted OBJ and Jace Amaro? Jeremy Kurley outplayed Hill for goodness sakes.

you hit the nail. totally didn't think of ray lewis, but yeah kuechly reminds me of ray lewis. kuechly is the next great QB of the defense from my eyes. i don't know kuechly in detail. is he a leader of man? does he live football like how singletary or ray lewis lived football? i don't really know much about him outside of what i see on the football field(which is greatness), but IMO, this kid will be one of the top 5-6 face of the nfl.
He's obsessed with football. Every indication from coaches and teammates is that he basically has no life away from the field.
Don't let the stories surrounding Cam fool you, he's just as fanatical. Every offseason he comes to the stadium and continues his routine of watching film and preparing for teams even if his season is over all the way through Super Bowl week. He says he does it because as long as football is being played his season is not over.
I know this is tough for Carolina fans to believe, but the truth is, Bill really does not give a poo about the Panthers vs. other teams in the preseason.
This was not the Patriots getting all amped up, it was the Patriots executing. The Patriots defense is not the Panthers, but they were quite solid before losing 6 starters. They are now healthy and should be in the top 10, not the best, but if Gronk is back healthy, the Patriots will have an top 5 offense once again. Its preseason but its ok to give credit where credit is due, Patriots were the far superior team....not because the Panthers beat themselves.
Carolina had a nice season last year, now try doing that more than 1 year. By the way, Lafell is going to be the #4 receiver at best and #5 target overall. Carolina has no real receivers, only a good TE in Olsen. Make the playoffs a few years, have a winning season more than 1 year in a row before crowing about how great the team is.
Are you actually reading what people here actually post or do you assume because we don't all fall down and immediately fellate your shittastic team that we're trying to pretend the game never happened? Get a clue, get the f*ck off our board, and shut the hell up.
I had a bad feeling all week when I read how the Patriots were treating the game and knowing we were not treating it the same way. I steeled myself for a poor performance and wasn't surprised to see it. If anything, I was pleasantly surprised with KB and the defense until Kuechly left.
I'm over it now, though. We could have won 30-7 and it still would be meaningless overall.
