Procton, maybe if you put the effort in supporting players on the team you claim to root for instead of popping up and kicking them when they are down, this town and it's "fans" would be a better place. You are no where to be found anytime the teams are winning. Where were you when they beat Washington? Such a worthless troll.

Any idea why was wearing the opposing teams colors in the conference?

News Flash - The Broncos are a good football team. Amazing when the GM and Coach work together. After Everette Brown and Eric Shelton, we fired John Fox?? HELLO!!! Anyone home Jerry Richardson?

Hey Procton, I'm not sure you're the one that should be talking about putting effort and energy toward improving. Careful throwing those stones, glass house.

Newton is the problem. I would say, bring in Derek Anderson, classic drop back passer, and will hand the ball off, throw screen passes and draw plays. Newton is another Vince Young. All about himself, no team concept. Inaccurate passer, not utilizing the running game, or doesn;t scan the field looking for secondary receivers. Sulks at the end of the bench with a towel. Anyone notice Payton Manning never does that

I agree with Joe. It's time to give Anderson a chance. He should have played the 4th quarter yesterday.
Superman needs a wake up call.

All you folks who still drool over what "Superman" can be every weekend, check out what the Bengals picked up the same year Cam was drafted. Tell the truth, don't you wish the Panthers would have brought Andy Dalton and A.J. Green to town instead of SuperCam?

oh! Cam just got sacked Again!!

I have been a pretty harsh critic of Cam, but watching the game yesterday, our O-line is horrible! Cam got sacked a lot, but he had no time to throw and the pocket broke down on what seemed like half of his drop backs.
it isn't sexy, but we have to draft O-line next year, maybe 1st and 3rd round with 2nd round going towards a corner

Do yah think Rootin' Tootin' Newton got the message ???
I hope Elvis is okay - he has a monster-year going for the Broncos.

No he is not the problem. It's the piss poor coaching and lack of player development. Seems like alot of people are still hung up on their team getting beat by Auburn instead of supporting this young man who came off the best rookie campaign of any Qb in history. Fire the coaching staff, draft and develop the talent, and watch this young man flourish.

Derek Anderson-haaaaaaaa. The Oline sucks. The Rbs have been caught in the Twilight zone. Special Teams is horrendous. Coaching is laughable. I have better game plans on Madden. You can't put an entire team on a 2nd year QB and expect him to just find his way!!!! Idiots.
Posted by: George Jones | Nov 12, 2012 2:05:31 PM
I don;t believe in going with whats not working. You need an experienced QB, that can read defenses! I think thats what Derek brings to the table, he can hand off, throw screens, scan open receivers and throw short passes. Newton can;t do any of that, he panics and is on the run. Derek not the answer long term, but Newton is not learning or developing as drop back passer.

Everyone need to chill out and give Newton the time he needs. With the o-line blocking the way they are it would be hard for Peyton Manning to be productive. At least give the guy some decent blocking

the lack of patience for this kid is incredible. this coaching staff is entirely to blame for the debacle that has been this year.
anybody who WOULDn't take john fox back in a heartbeat doesn't want to win. newton's numbers aren't great but they also aren't horrible and given the circumstances they have put him in, they are above what you could possibly expect from a second year guy of any caliber.
i'm not at all worried with any of the players we have at any position except MAYBE free safety and left tackle. when you run down this roster......there's talent at every single position and we're about to have extremely high draft picks AGAIN to go along with that talent. a good coaching change and this team isn't just in the playoffs but they are contending.
the right offensive coordinator would be making cam look better than he actually is as opposed to worse than he actually is. chud lost whatever brain for this sport he had last year.

People-People-People, blame it all on Cam why don't you. It can't possibly be that the O-LINE is atrocious at best or the O=Coordinators predictable play calling. Our biggest problem is not on the field, it's Jerry and the front offices Loyalty to the players. A few teams called to inquire about Steve Smiths availability before the trade deadline. With two years left on his contract, the team up against the salary cap with all the big money signings, out of the playoffs for this year, what could possibly be the reason we didn't take the best deal. Any pick is better than nothing at all.(ala Peppers)Oh,we were waiting for him to score his first td and add on to his franchise receiving record. Jerry, call New England or Pittsburg and ask if they can give you a little advice on how to operate your team. Loyalty doesn't have a place on those teams....

I'm with te Panthers and believe in what Rivera is doing 100 percent!!!!!! All you other fake fans take a hike and go to another team if you don't have the patience.
Posted by: ryan | Nov 12, 2012 3:24:55 PM
Did someone really say put DA in and we will hand the ball off, throw screen passes? Am I the only one that thinks it would be crazy to do that WITH Cam as the starter? If you told me that 28 & 34 would be getting a COMBINED 15 touches a game, I'd tell you to go ahead and admit yourself. Chud needs to go back and look at tape from the last 10 games from last year.

Rivera is not a head coach
You can't just stand with your arms crossed and get the job done. Unmotivated team , poor talent, poor staff. Get a head coach who can teach Cam, and get an 'O' line. This staff is s joke should be on the comedy channel.
Posted by: roberto | Nov 12, 2012 10:08:17 PM
I agree coaching staff is horrible. Maybe Rivera is learning but its at his team expense. He has waited too late ro try to make changes. When they dropped losses early in the season he said it was no time ro panic. When your team isnt producing any tards on offense and scoring less than 14 points its time ro panic unless you are the bears or ravens whose defense normally carries the team. Now with season over and trying to save his job he wants to cast crew members from the ship who help put the ship in the storm. Cam needs a coach that knows how to coach .. hes no peyton he cant coach the team for you. Give Cam a Coach that knows how to do just that Cam and the team will be better
