Cam has always missed a few wide open receivers in the regular season. 

 

Cam isnt known to be a precision passer.....

Every QB in the NFL has missed open receivers, and will continue to do so.

 

Maybe, 3-4 NFL QB's are what you could call "Precision passers".

My point is that two of the last three years Cotchery has produced like a fourth or fifth string receiver. And we are going to try him as a three with no fallback option. It could go badly.

Sorry, "thumping your chest" is such a trigger phrase for you.

 

Cotchery, was coming off a career threatening neck injury. So for several seasons after he wasn't that great.

 

Last year, he had a banner year, and you can argue, it was after he became healthy again.
 


In Topic: Rivera on Cam: "He's got to develop as a passer."

It only matter when you have any concern whatsoever with what ESPN says.  I'd rather my coach speak honestly than worry about how a news agency everyone says they don't pay any attention to makes up headlines.

 

Well, you can't worry about ESPN bashing their own article, when the title and article was nothing like how the OP presented.

 

The title actually said "Rivera: Surgery made Newton better QB". And the quote in the OP's title actually was ""Cam's the same way. He knows he's got to develop as a passer.", after Rivera was speaking about Michael Jordan. 

 

The OP just left out the, "Cam's the same way" portion of his out of context quote. SMH

 

The OP was disingenuous in their presentation, and only wanted a negative reaction (knowing many Huddler's would click on the links, and/or read the whole articles) from Rivera's innocuous comment. And I think he got it.

 

Gotta love the Huddle


In Topic: Philly Brown says he is "Absolutely" Carolina's fastest player

To extend the topic a bit, the job Gettlemen has done signing undrafted free agents is phenomenal. 

 

Last year:

 

White-Starting CB

Lester-probably starting SS this year, key contributor last year

Horton--played well last season, off to great start this year

 

Most teams don't get this out of their top 3 draft picks, and these players were a big part of the #2 defense.

 

I realize that not all were undrafted free agents or rookies, but this year, several unknowns that Gettlemen found and signed stand a good chance of making the roster:

 

Brandon Williams

Fozzy

Reaves

Bersin

King

Philly

 

Building from the bottom up. 

 

I think Brandon Williams, and Bersin were there before Gettleman arrived.

 

Nonetheless, point well taken. I do believe it was Gettleman's presence that communicated to Rivera the importance of getting of developing these guys and getting them on the field, if they're good enough in a Salary Cap strapped NFL.


In Topic: What do you guys make of the Cam haters still out there today?

And why did feel that way, honestly?

 

I am not saying u share that perception, But I honestly feel that there is a very false built in perception towards black players, especially when they want to play the QB position. 

 

Cam was automatically painted into someone like Manziel, despite the reality. His on and off the field actions were speculated and scrutinized to the point where folks were turning everything he did into a concern. LOL

 

It was the MEDIA, and his own ignorance, belief of them. It's that simple.

 

Any fans that followed Cam in Junior College, at Auburn, and/or did their own cursory research, would have known that Cam had been an upstanding citizen and teammate with those teams, while most of the negative PreDraft questions about Cam were totally untrue, and by non NFL people who couldn't care less.
