Panthers nation has been in a constant panic this week. First, it was another disconcerting press conference for their franchise quarterback, Cam Newton, after the Panthers suffered their fourth consecutive loss against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. Then, Monday, things became even more hectic when Marty Hurney was abruptly fired less than halfway through his 11th season as general manager. Before we all begin to hyperventilate, let's think back two years to the 2-14 season where the team finished dead last in almost every offensive category. At that point, every Panthers fan knew that the transformation from a doormat into a perennial playoff contender would not happen overnight. This became abundantly clear when the team used the first overall pick in the 2011 draft on Newton, who was labeled by most as a raw project with tremendous upside.

  • There is no doubt that Cam Newton posseses all th ephysical talent to be a real force for the Panthers. What he lacks is maturity and Humility (of at least he shopuld fein Humility) Hiding under a towel is something you see in High school. Looking at a receiver who did not catch the pass that was difficult at best is tantamount to yelling at him after the play. He has not earned that right. He needs a sports shrink or at least a word from former greats like Barry Sanders who calmly placed the ball on the ground after a TD When asked why he did not spike the ball as any of his contemporaries did, Barry replied-- "I get paid to gain yards and score touchdowns." "Why celbrate what I expected to do?" Cam-Let you skills and leadership sing your praises. One fortunate and actually outstanding season does not make a Superstar..

  • Time will tell. Franchise QB? I don't think so!
  • Cam certainly has the potential, but that's all it is right now. He has a long way to go to prove he is an NFL quarterback. He needs to get over himself and grow up. He is letting his teammates down and disappointing the Panther fans. It is doubtful he'll ever be an MVP.
