Greg Cosell: Cam Played Well But Early Drops Cost The Panthers
Mac Attack: 10/11/13: Greg Cosell, the executive producer for NFL Films and the NFL match up show joined the guys as he does each Friday at 805am.
Greg thinks the conversation about the Panthers would be totally different right now if Steve Smith didn’t drop two passes last night. Two touchdowns on the first two drives have changed the narrative.The Panthers opening drive was outstanding. Newton was sharp. This was a case where the Cardinals defense had a great mix of schemes and elements but its a different game if Smitty catches those passes
Greg thinks Cam played pretty well against Arizona. The Cards did a great job of using a spy scheme called a green dog concept with Darryl Washington and that caused problems for the offense. Cam was not the individual problem Sunday.
Greg discussed his take on the ripping of play calling. He has a hard time doing that because we don’t know what goes into each play and the play callers mindset.
