Cam Newton is looking ahead.
Forget that this is another lost season. The dynamic quarterback believes the Panthers can build on the success of having won four of their last five games.
''It's just something for the team's psyche,'' Newton said after a 17-6 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. ''People ask, what are we playing for this year? It's a respect thing. It's pride. Every single person that's on this roster can say I'm not a quitter. I'm finishing and I'm setting up for something.
''We know what kind of team we are overall, as a whole and we're playing for hope,'' he added. ''Is it too late? Some may say that, but I'm a part of a lot of teammates that aren't quitters and I'm proud to say that.''
Of course, the Panthers won four of their last six last season and stumbled out of the gates this year amid high expectations in his second season at the helm.
