i knew it was going to happen so i just sat back and watched and said in a sarcastic voice, shocker. the only time i got surprised was when the Titans picked. As for the pick, i am taking the wait and see approach.

Wanted to get violently angry but was too full of dread. I was remarkably silent at the announcement, and sarcastically clapped for the Bills getting Dareus, who was what I wanted all along.

I said, "yup," took the last slug of my coffee, and then went to poop.

Seriously.

I didn't and still don't know how to react this pick of Cam Newton...

On one side, he is a player with tremendous upside and swagger and could really benefit both as a solid player and QB but also as a media icon here in the Carolinas which would allow more publicity then we have ever seen before.

On the other hand, being married to a Georgia fan, I get the horrors that my wife keeps telling me. She informed me of the story of last season when Georgia and Auburn were playing and how dirty Auburn players were playing. At one point, Aaron Murray, the QB for Georgia got hurt and when Cam came out on offense, mocked Murray by pretending to be injured and got up smiling and then he went back to his teammates and they started to joke about it.

Fact is, a lot of people close to me believe his is too cocky and makes it too much about himself.

For me, it is a wait and see matter.

Like many other fans, I felt like we made the wrong pick. We had a great CB or DT sitting there but we took a project QB. Unlike most fans I do trust our new coaches and the front office so I accept the pick and look forward to him competing for the QB job.

my reaction was strictly physical. I think the word would be boner?

I wept with joy that the draft was finally over. Then I realized Newton/Clausen/(insert QB) threads would soon begin and it killed my buzz.

The man won two consecutive national championships for different teams. Having a player like that on our roster is EXCITING, regardless of the position.

That is a different question though than how it felt to see him taken first overall, knowing that if he fails we will fail for the next 3 or 4 years. To that point, I am nervous and anxious. I don't know whether to anticipate he'll be a bust, or to let my optimism grow to ridiculous proportions(Superbowl).

I would feel better about the pick, if I already had faith in the Panthers organization with regards to the task of developing QBs. But since I am as ignorant about that as I am about Newton's work ethic, I will remain anxious and skeptical.

We jumped off a cliff. If we land safely, we'll be the heros that everyone wants to high-5. If not, we'll go splat. There is not much if any middle ground.
