I’m not saying it’s not difficult. I get that. It’s a hard stretch. Losing sucks. 

I just think this will all end a little better than it started.

I'm optimistic, and Will Brinson had a nice point on Twitter the other night that Cam looked similar coming back from surgery at the start of 2017.  His lines the first few weeks...

Cam had some rough games that year, with plenty of great ones too. If Funchess could catch and time a jump, we beat the Saints in the Dome in the playoffs that year. Numbers at the end above show his (lack of) rushing as well (14 attempts in 3 games, 46 yards).  Seems every time Cam comes back from injury, there's an adjustment period.  Hoping this is the same.

That’s what I ve been saying since yesterday.  We lost to the Rams and probably they will sweep our division, so no big deal.   

I expect us to win this division given that Saints lost Brees, Falcons fail and Bucs have a QB who plays badly every second game.

We were fuging terrible in 2014 but luckily so was the rest of the division.

Sorry, but that's not really reason for optimism.

The first four games of 2014 is also a pretty good standard. Had the injury in New England week 3 of the preseason. Didn’t really unleash the rushing game until the Cincinnati tie. Ended up with almost 600 yards on the season. 

It could still go south, but I’m optimistic that things will get better.

Person doesn't sound like he is, for what it's worth; at least not when it comes to Newton.

Well, that’s definitely something worth considering. We’ll see what happens.

I've never been one to try and be Miss Cleo.

All I can definitively say is I don't like what I've seen so far, but anything can happen.

Yeah, I mean it’s not pretty right now. My feeling is the foot will continue to get better, and they’re waiting for the right moment to cut him loose in the run game. 

If Joe thinks it’s getting worse, or doesn’t have the potential to get better, then that’s a problem. Like I said, that’s why I said we’ll see what happens. I like Joe and I think his reporting is good.
