Called Cam a top 5 QB.

Thinks he can avoid the slump easily. That he's grasped the game as fast as anyone. Said he's a 'throw first' QB. That he proved a lot of people wrong.


Although he says he's ready and the other year he was getting his legs under him. He said also that the team he goes to has to be the right fit. He believes that the Panthers would be the best fit. Saying that you can't get a better situation that there is in Carolina. Steve smith, Olsen, who are they going to double?

[b]Mac Attack 6/18/12:[/b] Free agent WR Plaxico Burress stops by and tells the guys he would love to sign with the Panthers and has a lot of respect for Cam Newton and Steve Smith.
Plaxico Burress on Mac Attack June 19
Burress had no problem telling us what an awesome fit the Carolina Panthers would be for him. From a personal standpoint and a professional standpoint, he made it obvious that Carolina was his number one pick.
“There’s no doubt about it. I’m a Virginia Beach guy, born and raised. My brothers live there in Charlotte, my cousins live there in Charlotte…and all my family is down in Columbia, SC, so that would just be a great situation all the way around…Not just that, but playing with Cam who I think is one of the top five quarterbacks in all of football. And I’ve been saying for as long as I can remember that Steve Smith has been one of my favorite receivers as long as I can remember. I just think it’s a great situation.”
Since Burress has so much respect for Cam, we asked him what he would say to those who speculate a sophomore slump for Newton.
“He grasped the game just as fast as anybody that I’ve seen come in and play the quarterback position in the NFL and do it at such a high level… For him to come in as a rookie and just light it up and have some of those grown men looking like children, I just think it says a lot about him as a player and as a quarterback.”
We asked Burress why he hadn’t seen interest from other teams. According to him, it’s simply because he is being very particular about the type of environment he wants to play in.
“I just want to put myself in a position to go out and have success and to make the guys around me better and obviously play with a quarterback who can really play the position. It’s just about me picking my spots and seeing where I’m a good fit. You just look at a situation like Carolina. You can’t come across a better situation than that. “
Some Carolina fans have expressed fears that bringing Burress in as a receiver could throw off the chemistry that seemed to come along last season. Burress assured us that wouldn’t be an issue for a guy like him.
“You can ask any of the guys that I’ve ever played with about being a guy in the locker room that everyone likes and treating everybody the same. That’s who I am. But, for the people who say those things, maybe they don’t know me.”

The guy has a point. I don't know though.

Actually I think he would be a great fit, if he would take an incentive laden contract, I think he could offer a real red zone attack and cause match-up problems for a lot of corners in the division.

He knows the position and is ready to come in and block for the RB's and run routes on day one. He's a proven Veteran people. "Are we here to win a SB or win a beauty contest?" (pie to the person who can name who that quote came from" (hint, he's on our team)

To anybody that doesn't want him... Cam had a tendency to sail balls last year. I can't think of a better target to catch those balls. I think that the FO has to look at this from a football standpoint. What are this teams goals? What can we afford to pay him? Can he legitimately help this team reach our goal?

Once they do that, (and maybe they already have) then we'll know how serious we are to winning it all this year, which I think is possible.

I'll tell you this... I'd rather have him than get Shockey back! And I'm a huge "U" homer

I'm sure our FO is considering all options........

would be nice to bring in a WR of his caliber ( with his head screwed on straight)

I'm on the fence, I think he could bring a lot to the table, but also take away from the development of Gettis and Lafell. If he comes great, I will cheer for him, if not than I don't care.

I'm willing to bet that if Cam said to Hurney and Rivera, "Give him a shot guys." They'd get him.

Hell yah. How many more weapons can we add to this exciting offense of ours. We brought in Tolbert and if we could get Burress, wow!

We need to add a sure guy like him who we can depend on other than Smitty. Lafell and Gettis are so so. Especially with the other three teams in our division having great depth at CBs, a guy like Burress should help our wrs and Cam.

There's no downfall signing Plax.
For all the people who afraid of Lafell and Gettis losing snaps, if both of them can't beat out Plax, then they shouldn't be the no.2 WR.

If Plax do end up here, he wil only help Lafell and Gettis. If Lafell and Gettis can't beat out one on one coverage against the third or fourth cb, it would be sad.

We have too much faith in LaFell, and we have another guy in Gettis that has proven he's able to stretch the field.

If we didn't have Smith then yeah, maybe. But I like where we're at with our offensive targets.


I really like this Lamont Bryant kid too. 6'5 220, 4.4 40 yard dash.
