Lol, no he hasn't, but I'm sure you will prove it.
I am certain he has the most combined yards for their first 3 years of any QB in NFL history, and I'm also certain he had the most passing yards through his first 2 years of any QB in NFL history. Perhaps someone here knows if that still holds through his first 3 years.
Any way you measure it, his performance has been spectacular.
Every preseason it's the same thing. Cam looks kind of mediocre, and the skeptics come out of the woodwork to suggest we'd do better to start Anderson or Webb or whoever. Then the real bullets start flying and they all have to crawl back into their hiding places.
Some people never learn.
As to the original question, I too prefer Anderson over Webb.
I have a confession to make. I was happy about him getting cut. Apparently, I have a prejudice against people with really tall hair.
I watched him play last year at Tampa and thought he would be a good pickup. Deep down though, I was never comfortable with the hair. Then I found out he actually bought a round trip airfare weekly to get it shaped up, so that brought his decision making into question. And to make matters worse, the hair didn't even look good on him. It wasn't possible for me to evaluate him as a player, because all I could think about was the hair thing.
Just had to get that off my chest. And I apologize to any and all Huddlers with hair that extends more than 12" above their skull.
Cam changed for the better. He was too emotional, just not on the field to the opponent.
Huge difference in circumstances though, and I'm sure you realize that.
Cam was our best player on the field from his first start onward. Norman's production on the field has never been anything beyond mediocre, and that's probably being kind.
If and when Josh "figures it out mentally", my expectations are that he becomes an average CB at best, although with above average ball skills. Some speak of his talent as if he is going to grow into a Revis or Sherman. Personally, I don't see it.
FACT : The Panthers have what probably is the deepest group of Defensive Ends in the entire NFL.
When NFL teams look for valuable trades, they first look to teams that have talent to spare in the position of need. We all know this, it is obvious. The Panthers have 3rd string defensive ends that would be definite second string or possibly even situational first string players around the NFL.
Here are the locks to make the team, in order of skill level:
Frank Alexander (after 4 game suspension)
Listed are 6 defensive ends that belong on NFL rosters. However, there is probably only room for 5 on the 53 man roster.
I smell a trade.
Consider this as well...
They don't have to do anything now (before roster cut downs) due to Alexander's suspension. They can wait until the season has started when the demand may be higher due to injuries.
If they can't work a deal prior to week 5, then what do they do? Assuming all our guys are healthy, who goes?
...but honestly he just doesn't look like an NFL player.
Some guys just look out of their element once they hit the NFL, and to me, Barner is one of those guys. Can't see him sticking in the league much beyond this year. Someone will give him a chance after we cut him, but unless he turns it around big time, he needs to start thinking about a second career.
