Props to JR, Hurney, Rivera, and FO.

They could have easily made the "safe" choice and drafted Dareus or Patrick Peterson, and would not have received nearly as much criticism, but no, they took a risk to be great. Its not a guarantee that Cam will be great, but it looks like he is well on his way. Can't wait to see what we have in a couple of years.
Fortune favors the brave.

But I will say, the fact that Cam was treated that way speaks volumes of how far we really haven't come as a society. Here's hoping all the other athletes were as scrutinized but I doubt it cause they weren't made to look and sound like they belong in jail instead of a football field..I really thought the over-the-top behavior by the media towards Vick and Tiger was bad but DAMN....
It's really hard to believe that this is the same kid to top Andrew Luck in every area as a QB while he was in college. Yet he's constantly told he's not good enough to play on the elite level in the NFL and everything he does gets disected like a farm animal. But the NFL red carpet is awaiting the arrival of the "King and future QB" Andrew Luck..All I will say is WOW....

At least that's my hope.

"Yes, he's a bad ass and he's our bad ass Panther fans"
Made me smile.

Props to the fans who believed in and endorsed Cam Newton as a viable option LAST YEAR when everybody was on the Luck train or the "anybody but Cam" train. It took a lot of guts to stand up for Newt back then on this board. I was called a racist for saying Cam was the better QB. Now hes OUR QB. Gotta love it!
Yeah, I'll admit, I did not think Newton was even near to Luck's ability. I was flat out 100% wrong.
I was never on the anybody but Cam train. But I was on the Luck train, and I am honestly happy Luck didn't come out. Luck didn't want to be a Panther, and Cam did.
Nobody can say, "well no one knew Cam was gonna be this good".
Bullshit, JR, Hurney, and Rivera did

Remember this thread?
the guy who started it was such a tool.
for serial though, Cam has gone above and beyond my expectations and I have never been so glad that I was so wrong in my entire life.
look at all the tools who pied him..
