WHY CAM WILL BE OUT OF FOOTBALL BY 2015

DukeBLue you are nothing more than a HATER! i dont' think Cam's arm strength, physical strength, or running ability will deteriorate any time soon. And as for your argument about Defense's learning how to play Cam, how about Cam learning how to read defenses? This kid has been nothing but great in the locker room, film study, etc. He will be a top-5 NFL QB within 2 years.

While I disagree with the OP, he failed to mention the best argument to support his case: Daunte Culpepper.
Pro-bowler his first year as starter, two more pro bowls in the next 4 years, then got hurt and sucked it up for the next five years fading out of the league. QBs who rely on their athleticism often don't develop the other skills necessary to succeed in the league, and so once they get hurt and their athleticism doesn't come back to 100%, then can't make the same plays.

So how many professional football games have you started on let alone played in. have you coached anything but your mouth! I bet you you are a continued failure withthe ladies also.

I was listening to Dilfer talking about Cam the other day on Colin Cowherd, and man, Dilfer loves him. Says he was born to throw a football and is redefining the QB position at a basic level (7th&8th grade). Said in the Washington game he made about 6 throws that only Brees/Rogers types can make. In the future Dilfer thinks the bigger guys who get put at wideout or tightend or LB may now be looked at as a QB because of Cam. I'm on the CAMWAGON!
Here is the upside too, how many great players out there who are young and looking to get to a future condender, will now look at the Panthers in free agency, hooking up to the CAMWAGON.

I want Cam instead of luck. Big strong fast and has a touch on the ball. Luck will have a career that mirrors Carson Palmer and that is a good career.
Cragsdale Oct 31, 8:48 a.m.
Because he can't understand what Cam has done thus far. Yes Cam has natural talent, Rivera has done an exceptional job with what he's got on the field. The Panthers need a secondary that can stop the pass. Our Safeties suck. point blank. We have great LBs, an OK D-line (definitely could use some upgrades), but Overall, the Panthers are an inch away from figuring it all out. Cam is learning every day and he's getting better every day at reading the D.
The OP is hating because he's probably a colts fan.

If you watch Cam play you will see that he doesn't rely on his athleticism to make plays unless he has to. I thought drafting Cam was a horrible decision, but I can see I was totally wrong about the kid. Stays in the pocket, makes some pin-point accurate throws (see last weeks toss to Steve Smith at the goal line) and most of all has the right work ethic and attitude. Keep in mind to that he came from a spread offense and missed a significant amount of the offseason due to the lock out and is doing this well. While Cam does need to work on his accuracy and decision making a bit, I'm more than impressed with him thus far. On a side note, why, why, why did they let John Kasey go?

Kasey was let go only because he couldn't produce the booming kickoffs that are coveted today with the shortened return end. Cam is the real deal - nabbing him now gives the Panthers much flexibility in the draft, and they will be able to acquire some real talent at d-line and o-line, which they really need. Expect them to finish above .500 in the second half though looking at a possible 7-9, 8-8 or maybe even 9-7 finish. They might not make the top 5 for draft pick status - but their draft position will still be formidable with a major piece of their team already done.
