Cam Newton: Risk vs Reward.

Reward: A potential Super Star QB that would attract attention to this cit for the first time since.....well ever. There would not be an empty seat in Bank of America, people would finally be talking about the Carolina Panthers, and thats before he steps on the field. Then, once the CBA is settled, and Cam finally plays, he has the potential to become the next Mike Vick. Excitement, fun, and a winner most importantly. He would be here for the next 10 years, getting this team on the map, hopefully winning championships along the way.

Risk:He bust out and after 2 or 3 years we release him and look for another QB.

Why do people give an airborne rodent's rectum whether people are talking about us or not?

might as well take a chance for that reward. Naysayers dont want a QB for 2-3 anyway, what 's to lose

Because media attention and mattering draw other Free Agents.

You guys think missing on a quarterback you used a number one pick on is no big deal, eh?

NFL coaches and GMs would tell you otherwise.

If you want people to talk about you how about by winning games? I'm not so sure Newton's even the best guy to do that. Pick the best player, not who will give you the most buzz, that's just dumb

Winning draws free agents, not media attention.

Smart GMs go for the best players. Any GM who factors hype and media attention into who he drafts is a moron.

It sure set the Raiders back a decade, no wait they cut his ass and brought in help and kept it moving...no big deal especially with a rookie wage scale. What if it's not a miss?

You want to argue that you don't think he'll be a bust, that makes sense.

Arguing that busting on a number one pick at QB is no big deal is pretty well divorced from reality.

The Panthers dont win consistently and our owner is frugal. Its gonna take a Cam Newton to get people caring about us again. Cam is the safest pick and quickest fix for our franchise.

yeah hey the Raiders moved on from Russell, what are three lost seasons building around a guy while you still pay him after cutting him anyway?

seriously. are people really arguing that the Raiders weren't set back by Russell?

It's a big deal financially and it's a big deal if you miss out on better talent. You're right, but it's a risk all teams take every year with every pick so it's not that big of a deal. Not like trading away picks for no reason that's a big deal. I think he's gonna work to be a good if not great QB.
