Breaking news: Coach Ron Rivera has named QB Cam Newton the starter for Thursday night but not the season opener yet.

Also Hardy is back at practice.

Cam will play 3 quarters.

So Rivera is going to wait 1 more preaseason game before announcing? That'll be cool since that's what I had been calling for.

Cam will play around 3 quarters. Again, he hasn't been named regular season starter. But it's there for him.

Gonna have 3 quarters. Him playing that much makes it seem like they really want Cam to start.

wow rivera, wow

"so uh, guys... we really wanted Cam to look good, but damn, he just isn't stepping up like we hoped, so we're gonna give him three quarters this time and hope he does :)"

just name him the starter, jesus. it's obvious that is what you want to do.

Maybe he decided to ditch the whole idea of having at least 1 preseason game treated as a regular season game and give Clausen 3 quarters in game 4 too and then make a decision?

Well giving someone play time does not give them an advantage to start. If Newton comes out and throws 3 or 4 interceptions, it seemingly would almost force them not to start him.
