Newton can pick a new number let, he is our franchise QB and for that he can pick first of all the rookies drafted. How is that?

In reality, I wouldn't advocate cutting Baker to get his number or forcing him to give it up - I was being sarcastic, but I did think it was odd that Baker followed up his comment about not understanding why a number was so important with a declaration that he wasn't giving his up (if it's not important, than why not give it up?)

If Cam is smart, he wouldn't want the team to take a # from a vet and give it to him - that would be the wrong way to get things started with his teammates. Can't wait until he actually picks a number so this discussion can end.

Baker is my new least favorite Panther.

"The # shouldn't matter, yet I'm gonna bitch like a douche about someone wanting mine". Just go out and punt. you're hardly even an athlete.

[quote name='Joscott']Jimmy probably should have had the 7 last year and I'm sure something was said to Baker. Doesn't sound like a Clausen thing to not ask for it.

He sounds a little too defensive for it not to be and it doesn't help that he was 7 in college too. He just dosen't want the pressure to give his number up.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='CatMan72']I just find it ironic that Baker says he doesn't understand why it should be a big deal to Cam what number he wears, but Baker won't give up his number... hypocrisy at it's finest.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='CatMan72']...obviously Jason Baker does, won't give his up but doesn't understand why anyone else cares about the number they wear.[/QUOTE]

*AHEM*
“I have no intent to change jerseys and [B]haven’t been approached to do so[/B],” Baker said.

God I miss Football!! I would rather hear about the new schemes the coaching staff is going to use and who is going to be traded/picked up....so on and so on. I HATE this LOCKOUT CRAP!! Leads to dumb Crap like this..... "No, I want this Jersey # b/c I had it in College" ***NEWSFLASH!!*** You are in the NFL NOW!!!! Get a new # and make history with it! If you want your College # either go back to school (if you graduated you can wear it at home games in the stands saying "Look at me, I played here") or GTFO of the NFL!!!!

BTW - FUG Punters!!!!

FUG!!!! (yes I feel better now)

Cam desont deserve a damn thing.

He doest even deserve the rookie contract he'll end up signing.
Like a few others have said, he can have his pick of the numbers that are available.

Glad to see that the lack of common sense and rational thinking still hasn't gone away since cam being drafted. The collective iq of the huddle took a major hit from the panthers drafting cam.

Honestly, unless Carolina decides to retire #17 for Jake as the most prestigious QB we've had since inception I think Jimmy should take that number and give Cam the #2. Just sayin'.

I guess I missed it when Baker came in demanding a # that was another players.

I think it's pretty clear that baker doesn't understand why other players should have to give up their # just another player wants it. Two different things.

Baker is a pretty straight up guy, and you are calling him out over a lack of understanding on your part.

That's priceless.

Cam didn't DEMAND ANYTHING, he asked if he can have the number and I'm pretty sure he offered him money for the rights to it. And also we don't know if Cam has picked a number or not yet, since Teams aren't allowed to sell rookies jersey's until the lockout is over.

I wouldn't give up my number either....and I would heckle those who coming into the league made a big deal about their number.

I don't see how it's contradicting at all....Baker is saying to pick a number that's available and get to work....stop asking or hinting that you want someone else's.
