Cam Newton is the unquestioned leader of the Carolina Panthers, and with that leadership comes an occasional bold prediction. Newton and the Panthers are finally feeling confident about themselves, and according to Pro Football Talk, Newton “feels the Panthers are a playoff contender.” “I really do believe it,” Newton said. ”I’m not just saying anything [...]
