The 2012 season has been a trying one for Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. A 6-10 season in 2011 showed signs of promise for Panthers fans, who expected their team to be in playoff contention this year. That has not happened, and much of the blame has fallen on Newton’s shoulders.
Last season, Newton lit up the stat sheet and set a number of NFL rookie quarterback records — both with his arm and legs. His numbers have fallen this season and it has shown in the wins and losses columns. The losses are something Cam says he cares about. The stats? Not so much.
“As far as statistically I could really care less as far as how it’s been going,” Newton told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution when discussing this weekend’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. “We play this game for one reason.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has been in the headlines quite a bit during his sophomore season, and unfortunately for him, none of it has been good news.During last year’s Pro Bowl, Newton was knocked around a bit by a pass rush that usually doesn’t happen, he was sacked (which hardly ever happens), and he threw three interceptions.

We played a game Juan?
Last season Cam Newton went to the Pro Bowl and pretty much acted a fool with his fellow NFL brethren. His maturity or lack thereof really rubbed a lot of the players the wrong way.
Pete Prisco: “The reason: Newton dissed some of his brethren at the Pro Bowl,” Prisco wrote. “According to several players in the game, some from both teams, Newton’s...
The Carolina Panthers may be out of the playoff hunt, but they have plenty to motivate them against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend. The Falcons are a far superior team, but they needed a miraculous comeback to beat the Panthers in Week 4. After leading the improbable come-from-behind victory, Matt Ryan apparently was not friendly to his division rival.
Several Carolina players...
