Cool breakdowns. We also seem to hardly ever run 'no huddle', despite Cam's comfort level with it.
You sir, have hit the nail on the head!
The Panthers are still forcing Cam to work within the offense regardless of comfort level. While this is great during offseason and preseason you play to your quarterbacks strengths in the season. They make him go through all his reads still behind an OL that can not block for more than 2 seconds.
When they let Cam be Cam late in games when the coaches give up you see instant offensive production. If Cam manages to get the game back, they reel him back in and it goes back to Rivera/Shula ball.
Let Cam play the game and make decisions on the field during the game. Stop turning him into a game manager. John Fox let Delhomme have more freedom in the offense than Shula allows Cam. If you want a game manager, go sign Kyle Orton or Ryan Fitzpatrick. Come game time you let the players react in the game. Micro managing star players always leads to losses.
