Not a glaring endorsement. For either prospect.


Didn't McNair win an MVP award??? That would be nice.

it's odd how people say you don't draft a DB #1 because the other team can just throw to the other side all game. like that's a bad thing?


Yeah seriously. I'd love to have a guy that shuts down half of the field for opposing QBs, especially in our division.

PS: Wonder if it's been long enough to where I can neg rep Dpantherman again.

ok so because a CB has NEVER been selected #1 means it still wont happen? I just dont want to grasp that logic. What corner has ever been this highly touted?

It's funny, some mocks have dropped Newton down, others moved him up. I personally think that the amount of good things Rivera said about him helped him more than anything else.

The thing to note though is many of these mocks really have no idea how Newton, Gabbert, etc did in interviews with us, which is going to be the deciding factor.

At this point, the only player who has recently been pegged to us that I would not be happy with is Bowers, and that's because of his recent injury taking longer to recover from.

Surely those people are idiots, since they haven't been 100% right on every draft pick over the years.
Beat you to it, haters.


Stop calling us haters because we don't think Cam should be the #1 pick.

"Derp My Daddy says I have to finish college before I play in the NFL Derp"

Yeah, Luck shown great restraint when he was given such a choice.


or he wanted to get his degree because:
a) there will be a rookie wage scale whether he enters the draft now or after
B) he wants to finish his degree because he realizes he won't play football forever
c) college is already an awesome experience, can you imagine what it's like for a star athlete?
d) he will be drafted #1 overall next year too even if he sat out the entire season, so it's not like he's losing anything.

...I can keep naming reasons. All of you folks yelling at us Cam "HATERS" seem to hate on just about every other prospect not named Cam...

jeez, can you guys just relax and realize not everyone agrees with you? I've said many times that if the Panthers took Cam, I'd support it and wish for the best the same way for Clausen. I was mad when they drafted him but I supported it and hoped for the best.

i think it's odd, nor has any other team had to face 3 outstanding quarterbacks 6 times every year.

Not to mention, which draft has looked this bad for a #1 overall pick?

And look at last year, DTs are rarely taken top 5 but two went in the top 3. That had never happened before but it was the right move for both of the teams taking them.

Teams go after the top talents so long as it makes sense for them. Who cares what teams did in previous years with different needs and completely different players available.

Mark May thinks Cam will struggle next year but will eventually be "super star"

Can I answer?

a) I have no idea what you're talking about
B) Whats a degree? I have a diploma, does that count?
c) eh, I went to cpcc for 3 years before I dropped out, it wasnt that great
d) I only care about now, now NOW!!!

about the only thing people agree on is that he's going to have a learning curve...

which is why many people don't peg him at #1.
