Cam Newton up for 4 ESPYs

Recommended Posts

From Pat Y. @ ESPN

I’ve heard from several Carolina fans who think the Panthers have become the butt of too many jokes following last year’s 2-14 season.

Well, the good news is things generally don’t stay the same way for long in the NFL. In fact, maybe the tide already is starting to turn and the Panthers might be headed for some positive attention.

I just took a look at the ballot for The ESPY awards and there’s basically only one NFC South representative on there (unless you want to count the Saints’ playoff loss to Seattle, which is on there for Best Upset, but the honor in that goes to the Seahawks).

It’s Carolina’s new quarterback, Cam Newton. He’s on the ballot repeatedly.

Rest: http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcsouth/post/_/id/21914/cam-newton-up-for-four-espys

The link to the ballot is in article as well, so go vote for him.

Pretty cool for the kid. Seems like well-deserved recognition.

And it makes me want the season to be here sooner so we can see him in a Panthers uniform.

I really underestimated the value that the excitement Cam Newton would bring to the franchise. Patrick Peterson and Marcel Dareus just look boring now haha.

Yep... Who cares!? What the fug Clausen is doing... I stand by it too... It doesn't matter what he does... He'll be behind Cam all year.

Maybe you should stop trolling me... Go find a new hobby... Let it include not following me around improperly quoting me. What a loser!

Who cares what our backup QB is doing? Pretty much everyone except you considering he is an injury away from being a starter.

Explain to me how I improperly quoted you. And I'm the loser? Coming from a guy who takes swag and pi on an internet forum seriously, that doesn't mean much.

I'm voting auburn-bama as best game because I don't give two poos about college football, and I was flipping through the channels and i came across the game, the #1 team in the country (or 2 at the time, i don't remember, but they were undefeated) watching auburn getting their asses STOMPED by bama at the beginning of the 3rd. then came a newton TD pass. then another. Then nick fairley strapped the D on his back and beat teh crap out of macelroy and the o-line.

great, great game.

Best Game (AU v. Bama)

Best team (against Packers, Mavs, Bruins, Giants, Tex A&M women's bball)

Except Alabama had already lost to South Carolina and LSU at that point. But I guess I don't blame ya, since you don't care about CFB.

1st off... You got into something that didn't concern you. You came to the rescue for someone that didn't even know what an ESPY was... Next time you might want to consider what you're going to bat for.

2nd... NOBODY cares what JC is doing in the offseason! If Cam gets hurt, then we'll have Matt Moore or another vet to back him up. If it does happen to be JC, then guess what? We're screwed and will have a too 5 pick next year. There is absolutely nothing that guy can do to improve based on what we saw last year... Some people say give him a pass... He was thrown to the wolves.. I say, he had his chance... Royally fudged it up, and we had to pick a QB with our pick because he's not good enough. He had the WORST completion percentage of ANY rookie QB in the history of the NFL... How can you argue for ANY player with stats like those????

3rd... Maybe you didn't miss quote me... In fact u did not.

4th... You are a loser because you believe it is important to know what JC is doing this offseason. If you follow a loser; which he is... Then it makes you a loser...

5th... For you to boldly state that I care so much about swag and pie is just being ignorant. You do NOT know me at all. Getting on here is fun for me and it's entertaining. 90% of posts here are opinions. Either u agree or disagree. It's not my fault that people don't agree with the stuff you say... Also not my fault that you dint get enoug pie. And you're right... You never complained outright that you wanted more pie or swag... You just implied that you're hating on me because I have over double your swag with way less posts than you do. Maybe if you were a little more mature in handling yourself you'd get a lil more respect. You're 18 now... No longer a boy... Carry yourself like a man, and you'll get treated like a man!

I really had no beef with you until you came at me on a personal level... If you want to come at me with somin legit, I can take it.. You may want to think about who you try and punk out in the future... That way you don't end up being the one getting punked!
