Cam walked into a better much situation than Sam and panthers did a better job of building around him and provided a more stable environment. He also had better coaching and they kind of built the offense around Cam's skillet.
Now that doesn't mean that it was great or even really good here with Cam, but it was better by far than what Sam had at NYJ.
Sam walked into a dysfunctional situation that stayed dysfunctional. He walked into a team with very little talent that had done no rebuilding prior to him arriving and they did very little to try and build. He was told to play in a situation that wasn't at all built around what he could do, but, with Gase, a system that fit exclusively what Gase had going on in his narrow mind regardless of who was on the team and if they fit what he was trying to do.
And Sam now has the benefit of working with a team with a lot of talent (better than what Cam had) and some of the best talent developing coaches in the game(again, better than what Cam had).
Now I am confident that Sam will do well here...and that's just an opinion that could be wrong (wouldn't be the first or the last).
One thing I am most sure of and probably something most would agree with, he has no excuses after this year.
It's as about an ideal situation for a reclamation project and if he doesn't pan out...it's on him and we move on.
