Do you want Newton to win, or do you believe in the curse and you'd prefer to see Richard Sherman's career take a nose dive?

Good exposure for him and the team, but let's not forget he lost in the finals last year as well.

I'm surprised Russel Wilson didn't make the final somehow.

If Cam gets on the cover, (stupid) people are going to blame the "Madden Curse" if:

 

A. Panthers win less than 12 games. If Newton puts up 5000 total yards and 40 total TDs, but the Panthers go 9-7? MADDEN CURSE!!

 

or

 

B. Cam doesn't match his stats from last year. 3000 yards passing, 20 TDs and the Panthers go 15-1? MADDEN CURSE!!!!11

 

Basically, if he gets on, and the team's wins or his stats regress any...Madden Curse will be blamed. (I would be happy with either one of the above scenarios, so long as the Panthers make the playoffs in scenario A.)

I'll vote for him... Curse or not.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
