Compare Cam to other QBs picked by bad teams. He has a worse win % than fuging Sam Bradford and Vince Young, and they didn't have the offensive arsenal that you all love to claim everyone else has and Cam Needs. Still better than Gabbert though, who has a donut.
The Panthers have won through defense, not through Cam. The only times I can really say that we've won through Cam is the New England game in 2013.
So youre gonna casually ignore the two years cam was here our defense was bottom 16?
Dalton, Kaep, and Cutler all suck balls though. And their teams are going nowhere fast. The QB bubble will pop when Seattle tells Wilson to fug off next year, in my opinion.
Dalton, Kaep and Cutler are all average QBs, they're enough to win you games and get you in the playoffs (Or Cutler was. He's past that point now.) but you could also upgrade those guys.
Without Cam we're a 3-4 win team. He was our offense for 3 years and now we're finally building around hi as of last year, where he played hurt a LOT. He's above average, and has all the tools to be great. Is he elite? No. Does he have flaws and make plays that make you cringe? Of course. Can he get better? Hell yeah.But to say he's average and we shouldn't pay him franchise QB money is
Funchess has an inch on him (6'4 to 6'3) and 16 pounds (232 to 216) but they are very similar athletic players. Same broad jump, andf Funchess' vert is two inches higher.
Both are big bodied WRs that aren't burners, but can be deep threats, they outsize DBs and know how to fight their way open and use their size and long arms to snag balls others can't. They both make WOW catches and have amazing body. Both can also pick up YAC and even take screens and slants and pick up chunk yards.
The fact that he's football smart is wonderful. I can imagine Proehl is just as eager to get a chance to mold this kid as he was with Benji last year. He already runs solid routes and uses his hands to fight off DBs really well. Can't wait to see what this kid can do.
That being said--don't be surprised if we watch the FA to see if we can nab a playmaker/gadget type WR, especially during TC cuts.
