First off let me express how I feel here with a photo
I’ll agree with anybody that Cam Newton is having a shitty season. His team is 1-5, The talent on offense should have MUCH better results and that points back to Cam, fairly or unfairly.
But it he now all of a sudden Vince Young?
Let’s not be so quick to write off this talented QB like he’s old news. I think RG3’s success is making Cam look even worse, because they’re running similar styles of offense and Cam, with more talent on his team allegedly, SHOULD be better.
But there are so many factors at play here that it can’t be whittled down to one singular point of Cam being washed up in his sophomore season in the league. The talent has gone NOWHERE and the talent on offense is present and accounted for. Yes, the CAR defense is a bit lackluster and prone to giving up major runs here and there but they are competing.
I say we look @ two other factors here: One: The GM (who got the boot) for loading on extensions to people who are good but injury prone and redundant….AND the offensive co-ordinator Rob Chudzinski. His offense is supposed to revolve around tight end play? THEN REVOLVE IT AROUND THE TIGHT ENDS YOU GOT, PAL! You’ve got a decent set on the team, so utilize them! ALSO RUN THE BALL WITH THE 32 RUNNING BACKS YOU GOT ON YOUR TEAM!!! Help Cam develop a rhythm of handing off and maybe you can get some play action off of that! How about we don’t force the ball to Steve Smith all the time? and so on and so on……..
Let me reiterate: Cam is no washout. He’ll be here for a while. Will he be all world? Time will tell. But he won’t be a Vince Young/JaMarcus Russell washout… I just don’t see it.
