Everyone wants to talk about Cam’s shoulder / zip / velocity
What about Cam’s ability to shake defenders? In years past he’d scramble in the pocket to get that extra couple of seconds to get a pass off. I’m just not seeing that anymore, any hint of pressure in the backfield and he’s down.
That ability and his scrambling ability made him a legitimate dual threat, it was what made Cam the QB the world knew
look at the gif here, he looked bigger/stronger where now he looks a bit leaner
Many times I've felt the tug of conspiracy watching NFL. It can all be so easily manipulated with just a couple of flags at the right time. The way Denver was allowed to murder Cam in the Superbowl and subsequent season opener really had me questioning was it even worth watching. If manipulation is occurring then I submit it's on a smaller scale, targeting a specific team like the Panthers, or even specific players like Cam. I don't believe it's happening on a league narrative level. If it were the Cowboys would have won something by now. (Unless the league has been trying hard to give it to Dallas and they still somehow fug it up?)
I would not.
Not many teams in the league have the coaching capacities to make him successful, to say nothing of the personnel. It's just not fair to assume the panthers could get the same out of him when the panthers, just like every other non new england team in the league, are not new england.
This is made worse because the Panthers have a glaring need at QB and haven't gotten to see Jaycee Horn. Even assuming the QB situation is still ass, if Horn was out there balling out we wouldn't be so upset about it. And just so we're clear, Horn was absolutely passing the eyeball test.
