With Carr's win and Mannings loss, should I hope for a loss next Sunday? Na, I cant do it.

If only Newton's inexperience were the only problem on this team.

One thing, #1 draft picks or teams starting rookie QBs usually aren't very good or they would not have that high of a draft pick.

Statistics can be misleading meaning a QB is just a piece part to a whole, not the whole.

If the Panthers don't find DT and CB help quick and something to plug RG, it won't matter what Newton or any other QB on the roster does.

Yeah it wont matter what Cam does if Fitz is able to setup a lawn chair out there. Is Hightower still with Arizona? Seems like I heard he went somewhere? Not that it matters, if we dont fix DT Christopher Reeves could be out there and we would give up 200 on the ground.


*Hightower went to the Redskins....damn, sucks to be him.

Leave it to ESPN to spin anything with Cam into something negative even when it's not.

Those stats are very encouraging because the pressure is off to believe u need to go out and win ur first game or else ur a failure. But winning the first game after a dismal season is good feeling.

Didn't Leaf win his first two games too?

Doesn't mean a thing for the future player he can become if he wins or losses his first game... he isn't playing every position on the field... but I am interested to see his growth.

Haters no matter what come next Sunday:

If Cam loses: "HE'S TERRIBLE I TOLD YOU GUIZE THAT HE WAS A BUST"
If Cam wins: "HE'S NOW DESTINED TO TURN INTO DAVID CARR"

You got any history on their opponents at the time? AZ isn't in much better shape than we are.

Yeah I kinda thought of the ludacrisy of that statement but then I thought about Clinton Portis and typed it anyway.

I imagine things wouldn't look good for us in this game no matter who the QB is.
