Panthers punter is not amused by jersey number talk

109 posts in this topic

I think Jason's point was taken out of context a little. I think his point was that the only people who really care about numbergate are the media.

But honestly.... punters and kickers should not be allowed to express their opinions. Just because you couldn't cut it in futbol doesn't mean anyone gives a fug about your opinion in football.

Much in the same way that Canada isn't a real country; kickers/punters are not football players

I think asking people to change their number is ridiculous. Cam needs to pick a new number. He is the villain here. Baker and Clausen were here first. Cam needs to stop acting like he's royalty. He's gonna get paid like he's royalty, so he can at least show some humility to his new teammates.

Baker is one of the most overworked players in the league. Every time he tries to take a break the Panthers offense goes 3 and out. Then the defense likes to create turnovers. God knows what for, soon as Jimmy C touches the rock 3 times, Baker is out of his comfortable bench again.

You guys would be angry, too.

Baker has made more of an impact on this team than either clausen or newton. He's keepin his friggin number. Anyone who thinks he should be cut bc of this is an embarrassment to our fan base.

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.

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.

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.

...obviously Jason Baker does, won't give his up but doesn't understand why anyone else cares about the number they wear.

Baker is my new least favorite Panther.

*AHEM*

“I have no intent to change jerseys and haven’t been approached to do so,” Baker said.
