Did You Actually Want Cam Drafted?

No I wanted us to draft Dareus and give Matt Moore another chance as the starter.

Didn't pan out the way I wanted but I can deal with it, move on, and support Cam Newton. And it looks like Irvin and McClain might just make up for Dareus.

Fixed. Sorry, that makes a little more sense. :)

Nope, all my friends said the Panthers are taking Cam Newton, and I denied it right down to the second it was announced by Goodell. Wanted Dareus or Peterson, but I'm a Defense guy.

Much more comfortable with the pick now than I was then, based on the things I've seen Cam do and say. He's the franchise now, like him or not, gotta support him.

My thoughts exactly.

I was absolutely against anything to do with Cam Newton.

We drafted him and at first it was "he is our guy, he has my support".

But now I really like the guy now and I am glad we drafted him over any player available in 2011.

I also think he will be a lot more entertaining, charasmatic, fun to watch play, and generally more interesting than Andrew Luck.

I see great things to come from him.

I wanted AJ Green and then Patrick Peterson, but I am glad that we drafted him and I am very excited about the future!!

I think that a lot of our fans didn't understand what it meant to draft Cam Newton. Being last in passing offense was our biggest hole. The previous year, we had 2 running backs run for over 1000 yds. Steve Smith was seriously contemplating leaving... D-Will became a free agent, and I can imagine a number of players wanting to jump the sinking ship.

You can check back on some of my past posts and you'll see that I predicted that we would draft Cam Newton and I also predicted that signing Cam would cause D-will and Steve Smith to stay. Not only has drafting Cam energized the fan base, but Cam has helped bring in some serious weapons for our offense.

Sure Marcel Dareus is probably going to be a solid player, but he's not gonna have the same impact that Cam will have. I'm ELATED that Ron Rivera, JR and Marty Hurney, didn't drink the Kool-aid about Cams work ethic, character issues, and all the stupid comparisons to J. Russell.

I liked Andrew Luck, but felt like if he didn't come out, Cam Newton would be just as good of a pick. And it makes it even more of a steal that the CBA won't handicap a franchise by having us spending big bucks.

Some think that there was no need to draft a qb with the 1st pick... But Cam has proven to be more than just a qb. This dude, whether we want to believe it or not, is our Lebron James.

God i hope not!!

So the panthers were dead last in passing and they draft a QB known more for his running ability??

I wanted Gabbert, and I still think he will be the better qb. Regardless of how good Cam actually is (and he looks really good).

I've been lobbying for cam since Luck took his name out of the hat. I even predicted we would draft him before the combine(see earlier posts). Its funny how perception of Cam has changed from then til now. When i brought it up then everyone wrote it off as stupid and would never happen. not worthy...now everyone loves cam.
