Cam Newton played one full year of college football. Then 5 weeks of NFL practice. And now he breaks records.
They decided to use him and let him throw the ball, that was a DECISION. Just like us running into a 10 man box was a decision, just like running on 3rd and long was a decision.
Now, if we see the same sort of playcalling next week vs Dallas, who is looking very good right now, then we can start being concerned.
-- I agree with this. We'll give it another week, but boy is this place going ape-s**t if we do the same thing next week and lose.
Smith will never have the moxie that Newton has. he just wont.
Ok, fine. But he doesn't need moxie, he needs passing plays. The line pass blocked great for Smith. We could have done a lot more with our passing game, but coaches were horrified of using Smith. I thought we would surprise people. I thought Harbaugh might actually let Smith make some plays, I was wrong. Harbaugh is even MORE terrified of letting Alex throw the ball then Nolantary was.
