The Panthers are playing bad as a team: dropped passess, interceptions, bad protection, blown coverages, etc. Cant really blame the offense for allowing a 79 yd punt return, nor the special teams unit for allowing sacks. It is a team-wide problem that only seems to be getting worse. Fire Ron Rivera? who knows, Ive always felt that a great coach is only great because of the players that go out on the field and do their job and put forth great effort. Sunday after Sunday the only effort I see consistanly on the field is Kuechly. He has the drive and determination that rookies bring to the table. Its the same fire Cam had last year but obviously lost during the off-season.

Wait...I was going to say something critical of Cam Newton...Skip Bayless said he is overated?? Never mind the criticism I was going to make if Skip Bayless says he is a lost cause then he will be in the pro-bowl next year for sure!!! ( Skip Bayless= biggest (offensive word) analyst on tv)

Like most I am disappointed with the Panthers. They do not have a decent back-up QB either.

Its easy to point the finger at one player that you don't like, but the Panther's losses have been a team effort. You can blame him for the losses, but I don't see any credit when he does good. Look at the Atlanta game, he brought the team back, they scored the go ahead score just for the defense to allow Atlanta to drive down the field from their own 1 yard line with a minute left and kick the winning field goal, I guess that was Cam's fault. He has made some mistakes, but if you look at their losses most of them are not his fault, you can blame the defense and coaching for 90% of the Panther's losses over the last couple of years.

Cam is not playing good thats for sure, but its not all on him. People seem to forget that he is still very young. After last season the defenses have adjusted to him, now he has to adjust to the defenses, but thats a hard thing to do when you are getting absolutely no support. The o-line was suppose to be good this year but ever game I have seen Cam is getting pressure almost ever play he drops back to pass. He is not being given any time to read the coverage, every play he has 1 or 2 defenders in his face. All the defenses have to do is play to stop him from running because they know the pass rush is not going to give him any time to set up and look for the open man. It doesn't matter if you have receivers wide open if the qb is scrambling for his life.
Second, where is the running game. Without a running game it doesn't matter who the qb is, if the defense doesn't have to worry about the run, then the qb does not stand a chance, they can have 11 guys playing against the pass.
Finally, most of this goes back directly to the coaching. I was wondering about Riveria when they hired him. He might have been a very good defensive coach, but he is no head coach. His decisions are terrible at times and he does not get his team prepared for the games. For the most part the whole coaching staff is terrible, the play calling is terrible most of the time. They should have went with a head coach with some experience.
So no, all the blame doesn't go on Cam. Sure he needs an attitude adjustment, thats for sure, but he is still very young and immature. People expect too mush from him and he can't do it without the supporting cast around him. Look at some of the great qbs and how long it took them to win a sb. Everybody considers Manning the best qb, maybe the best ever, look how long it took him to win a sb. Manning had a great head coach, a very good running game and a very good defense, Cam doesn't have any of these things this year.

You Panthers fans have blinders on. If you watch their games, do you ever see Cam looking at the coverage photos on the sideline? Do you ever see him huddled with the other QB's trying to figure the defense out? No you don't. Do you know why? Cam is a college QB trying to make it in the NFL. He cannot read defenses or make adjustments. Lots of talent, but his mind isn't strong enough. He will be out of football by 2015. I told all of you this would happen last year. His coach and OC aren't helping either.
