Honestly, no matter what Newton says about it being his fault...I look at it has him saying the politically correct thing. Yeah I'm sure he really does feel the need to take some blame, but he's been amazing in basically EVERY game thus far (in my opinion). But watching him SO distraught about losing...as good as it made me feel to have a true dedicated QB, it can bite us in the ass if we don't start putting the pieces around him. That's with ANY superstar.

This. But I'm going to stop worrying. I have faith in my team

If you are worried about Cam leaving 7 games into his rookie year, you have some serious abandonment issues.

Ehhh it's more things linking to one another...I'll think to myself " Cam is great. Imagine him 5 yrs. fom now. By then his contract will be up. OH NO, what if we can't re-sign him. etc."

I need to go to sleep. :Yawn:

A team's national perception and even "market" is rarely determined by the size of the city. Pittsburgh is a relatively small market, about the same size as Charlotte, but it's pretty much the 2nd most popular team in the country behind the Cowboys. Meanwhile, San Diego is the 8th largest city in the US and it's considered a "small market" football team.

Holy Jesus I was just stating the inevitable, at some point he will have to make a decision to stay or leave. If the Panthers stay in the doldrums of the league it would be extremely tempting for any player to go to a winning franchise.

You know the reason Lebron left? Because the front office panicked and tried to surround him with anything they could, every chance they got and ruined their cap and their ability to compete. This is a completely different game with completely different rules and we've already surrounded him with good talent on offense. I trust that we can do that on defense with Hurney and Rivera.

How would you say Charlotte is perceived as a market and a franchise?

What makes this even more special is the fact that people said he couldn't do it.

A lot of people thought that J.R. was stupid for asking Cam "Do you want to be great?", but I think that was the smartest move made in the entire process. I have always been a Auburn/Cam fan because of a close friend that I have but I would be lying if I said I wasn't worried after all the hype I personally gave him when he decided to leave Auburn for the NFL. Anyway back to main point... I feel like if you can take guys like Steve Smith and Cam Newton who were told that they won't or even can't succeed at the next level and light a fire under them; then they tend to turn out as some of the best and most exciting football players because they leave it out on the field every single week.

Right now? Small.

But who knows how we will be percieved at the end of Cam's rookie contract. New England was percieved as a small market before 2001.

Yeah, I would just enjoy the now and not worry about anything that far away that we can't have any idea of knowing. Sleep is awesome.

Also, just because we are a small market doesn't mean we don't have any pull. It only takes one guy...to influence others. See Jesus and now hopefully Cam Newton.
