Panthers QB and former OC were always butting heads over playbook
Marty Hurney the Carolina Panthers General Manager has his own radio show on ESPN 730 and his guest Cam Newton really let him know the truth about his former offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski.
“It kind of was a learning curve, especially when you was here, with having coach Chudzinski,” Newton told Hurney, via Black and Blue Review. “He opened the floodgates with material right from the jump. I didn’t like it then because coming from a hand signal philosophy from Auburn, it was kind of force-feeding a kid with carrots. I didn’t want to learn it, and I was always trying to complain about the workload. It was too much. ‘Y’all putting in too many plays. We only can run one play!’” Newton recalled saying then. “Me and coach Chudzinski were always butting heads with the workload because I came from a system that was look to the sideline and play — fast. Make plays.”
It is crazy to think that Cam Newton was the reason that Chudzinski was able to land the Cleveland Browns head coaching gig, but I had heard from several people that Chudz playbook was huge. It had thousands of plays in it, which is great, but Cam is right you can only use one play at a time.
