Cam Newton admits he couldn't throw 30 yards

And Ron sent him out there anyway.

I also think Cam should have done what's best for his career and told them he needed a break.  But yes, this is a very bad look for Ron and shows he doesn't really care about Cam's overall career.  We've known that since he let him play the 2016 season after he tore his shoulder.

This! I mean why do we have back-up QBs. Sure Cam might have been mad but once his arm became like a noodle Ron should have sat Cam and began resting him seeing if the back up cod get us to playoffs or just starting the procedure early. I just don't know how Ron felt playing him would help.

Well did he ever admit that to the coaching stuff during the season at any time after they were 6-2?

If so, and that coach decided he was still the best chance to win after losing game after game that coach should be fired on the spot...........Rivera?............If I was Tepper and found this out I'd be looking to chop heads.

He skipped 90 because Peppers is no longer on the team.

 

 

...yeah, let's go with that.

Seriously, anyone ever been in that state of sedation  is likely to forget their own name.  I give him a pass for skipping a number here or there.

Of course Ron knew.  Everybody did.  But all we heard was how there was no structural damage and it was just general soreness.  I can't blame Ron for sending him out there.  If Cam wanted to play and the doctors were saying there was no structural damage what was Ron supposed to do?  If we'd have had a viable backup then maybe I could see sending them in but I'm sorry Heinicke and/or Allen weren't viable backups.  IMO this is where Hurney effed up by not having someone capable of running the offense (with some degree of productivity) were Cam to get injured.  Maybe that's on Turner too because he seems to have been the one that wanted to bring Heinicke in.

Maybe recognize that his QB was shot-putting his throws barely 10 yards on his throws and start believing his lying eyes like a normal human being?

"Bu... bu... bu... they said he was OK!"

That's weak-sauce, man.

Cam didn't even know what was wrong. How was Ron supposed to know? Cam played well through half the season.

weird thing is, if we had rested cam at, say, 6-5, we would have been checking back with testaverde or someone else off the street when we were 6-6.  another reason rivera and hdog need to go.  how many qb's would have ended up injured? 4, 5, 6?

That tells me more about what Ron thought of Heinicke or Allen.

If a player can't injure themselves anymore by playing and they want to play and doctors sign off, what is the big deal?  Only dig I see against Ron is he thought his back up was better than what he actually was.  This place lobbied for years to cut Anderson under the idea that he was awful and if Cam got hurt our season was pretty much over anyway . . . well Ron listened and the Huddle still complains.

I’m almost kind of jealous of you. Riding at 5:30AM in a Lambo with Cam. You know who you are. 

To all you haters out there. This shows who a man is.
