This is simply amusing to read now, especially in hindsight, to realize how wrong people can really be. I never saw this article before the draft, but after reading it I literally lol'ed.

I think we should hold this guy to it:

Cam Newton is a sure-fire bust. I am so certain of this that if he is the Panthers' starting quarterback in 2016, I will buy a Cam Newton jersey and stand in the stadium parking lot in my underwear when the Panthers come to Tampa Bay and hold a sign proclaiming that Auburn rules over Florida and Carolina rules over Tampa Bay.


Also, this was my favorite line:

In five years, when The Golden Calf of Bristol is leading Denver into the playoffs and Cam Newton is riding someone's bench, remember this article.

I was making the point on how idiotic these people can really be, but I forget you all knew this

Bleacher Report might as well let a mentally retarded turtle write articles for them.

Note to self: Avoid Tampa Stadium parking lot when they host the Panthers in 2016 :eek:

Worth noting that the writer lists himself as a Jags fan.

lol thats funny.

I skipped reading most of the draft stuff this year because I've learned most people are full of poo and have no clue who is going to be good, bad or great.

Okay....

He's only led his team to 2 wins so how has he not proven to be a bust? Get this dreadful team to 0.500 then we can talk.

There's a linked article that compares every NFL team to Halloween candy.

I kid you not (link)

The Panthers are compared to Jolly Ranchers, with this explanation:

Colorful. Endearing. Usually enjoyed by folks with tooth damage.

I'm prepared to switch my allegiance to whatever team most resembles Reeses Cups.

Besides his very first game as a pro, the combined records of the team's Cam Newton and the Panthers lost to:

20-8.

Of those teams, two have won the Superbowl in the past two years, one was in the NFC Championship last year, and the other was 13-3 and won their division. Dreadful team??? The schedule has been BRUTAL...A bunch of close losses to playoff experienced, veteran teams. What else could you ask of a rookie? He gave the extremely young Panthers a chance to win every game but in the end, experience won.

Have you watched a single game this year?

Congrats. You are now a Raiders fan :eek:

Cowboys had baby Ruth with this tagline.

Like the Cowboys’ fanbase, it serves classic tastes, but it’s mostly made up of nuts.


Jets were Jawbreakers with this...

You get a lock of mouth crackling for not a lot of payoff.
