Feel free to go to my team's website and download our game. It was a student based project with 15 developers and a sound engineer. I would highly recommend plugging in an Xbox 360 controller to play the game.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated, especially on the Green Northern Residences level. That was the one I designed and I'm hoping to learn as much as possible from this experience.
Just go to the download section of our website if you're interested. We also have a trailer that may come in handy if you're wondering if Voodudes is something you would like.
Cam Newton came out of the gate on fire, passing for 854 yards in his first two games and he would win his first game of the year in week 3 vs. The Jacksonville Jaguars. Newton would go on to complete the first half of the season as the lead passer in 6 of the 8 games. Newton set the tone early in the season that he is for real. While The Panthers would finish the first half 2-6, Cam Newton would have higher game totals in passing yards than opponents Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan and Jay Cutler. However, Newton would have no victories over their teams and his week 8 match up vs. The Minnesota Vikings would be the last time he was a game’s passing leader.
Newton’s led Panthers would finish the second half of the season going 4-4 but only one season win over a team with a winning record. The Panthers beat The Houston Texans in week 14 minus key offensive players including Texans starting quarterback Matt Schaub. That’s right; T.J. Yates had more passing yards than Cam Newton in their match up. While The Panthers were winning, defending Cam Newton was becoming a challenge more easily accomplished than in the first half of the season.
In the second half of his rookie season, Newton’s passing yards per game totals would leave him runner up to the leader in all eight games. Matt Hasselbeck, Chris Painter, T.J. Yates and both Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ quarterbacks, Josh Freeman and Josh Johnson would out pass Cam Newton. Of Cam Newton’s 4051 passing yards, 34% would be achieved in games 1-4. In games 5-8, Cam would amass another 25% of his season total, followed by 22% in games 9-12, and finishing the final four games with only 19% of his rookie season’s total passing yards.
Maybe it was the mental game wearing down on Newton but when we see his best games coming in September following an off season with a lock out, Cam Newton’s sophomore slump seems highly possible. In Week 1 Newton matched up against Kevin Kolb and The Arizona Cardinals, followed by The Green Bay Packers’ high powered offense and then The Bears’ week 4 match up, going toe to toe with what was still a Mike Martz ran offense at full strength. If we take out those three games, Cam Newton’s record improves to a .461 win percentage as opposed to .375 but he would only have an average of 217 passing yards per game. Newton’s touchdown to interception ratio and total rushing touchdowns were identical in both halves of the season. However, in addition to his victory over T.J. Yates and The Texans, Newton’s wins came against extremely inferior opposition as his passing yards per game declined throughout the season.
That article kind of makes good points but the writer did not watch us last year. The reason the yards went down for Cam the second half of the season is due to the improved running game as the season progressed.
We were a more balanced offense and were scary as fug. Cam can throw for 350 if he wants to. Chud found ways to utilize our badass backfield as the season progressed and it showed in our efficiency and Cams drop in pass yards per game.
They did not draft Cam to sell tickets. They drafted him to win games. That's what GM's and coaches care about. Winning.
What sells tickets? Winning.
Amazing, that Jamie Dukes somehow waddled pass security and didn't start blabbering into every conversation in our building where our front office was looking at Cam from every anlge. I didn't know he was in the interviews where Chud and Shula both came out saying the kid could run a pro style offense. I didn't know Jamie took notes on Rivera's opening press conference in stating the importance of a franchise quarterback.
Our franchise took Cam Newton to selll tickets by winning games. They knew it was a risk, but a calculated one and it payed off. Maybe the Falcons homer should do his research before blabbering his mouth and give credit where it is due.
Yeah he was praising him and how good he is in our offense. It wasn't a bad thing at all. It would more like he was great and wanted him around for a long time.
Oh okay well that's cool. My guess is 3 years for him to still be a legit #1 receiver. I think once you hit your 30s it all comes down to how commited the player is/ genetics.
Seeing him put up these numbers is a double edged sword. Because he probably would be on his way to 2nd in Rec yards all time and a place in Canton had he had this offense earlier in his career.
But seeing him put up these numbers is so gratifying because I think the majority of fans and journalist(especially with small market teams) do not look at the whole picture when it comes to where a player is at in their career. Most sports journalist saw Steve's numbers for the past two years and just wrote him off as not a #1 receiver instead of looking at the inept offense he was on. Then they probably went and ate a donut and wrote something about Favre or what's wrong with the Cowboys this time?
I hope it's a long time because he's my favorite player, even ahead of Barry.
And sorry, Peppers has had the best career of a Panther, but Smith is a close second.
With Steve Smith discounting his rookie year where he was not allowed to practice with the Wr's and 2004 where he went out first game you have a player that has averaged 1159 Ypg a season. (If my memory serves correctly there is only one or two WRs that have a higher avg for this time frame with a much better QB play). While Jake couldn't muster a QB rating over 88 on a run first team w/o a second receiver for the most part.
With Pep you had an average of 11 sacks per season, while playing on what was regarded for a while as the best defensive line in football for a while, and later on in his career was still pretty solid. Although in his defense Trgo was a poo coordinator but so was Dan Henning. Also 2007 was inexcusable.
They both were solid on special teams. Pep blocked FGs and Smitty returned TDs and made it to the pro bowl on this merit.
I feel based on comparisons between there reg season play slight edge is to Smitty. But in playoffs it is not even close
Smitty 97rec ypg and a td.
Pep 2 sacks and an int over his entire post season career. Both played 8 post season games.
Thank him for being the greatest Panther ever. For being the best receiver in the NFL for around 3 years.
Apologize for the front office not capitalizing on having the best offensive weapon fall in their lap from the 3rd round. A flawed coaching philosophy that didn't properly utilize his talents that is finally coming to an end. Or just fuging up a potential HOF career in general.
Then give him a hug from all of us ungrateful sons of b1tches who may never really fully appreciate what we have with #89 or see what could have been.
