I wouldn't say many of us were moaning and groaning about getting Cam. Just 2 or 3 people.

So, out of curiosity, how did you start following Cam?
I was reading a sports-site, don't remember which one and I saw a story about another major "heisman Trophy scandal. I didn't initially pay the story any mind until around late november/December when NCAA reinstated Cam and every sports writer was trying to over-analyze the interpretation of the NCAA by-laws. I just thought the whole thing was weird and felt like the media wanted to create another Reggie Bush Heisman Trophy scandal but in real time. The way the media handled the story, plus the viciousness of many of the postings that followed, peek my interest so much that I decided to take a closer look at the story. And as they say, the rest was history.
I went and did my research on the actually story. In the end, I really felt and still feel that this whole media attack on Cam and his family was more fueled by blind speculations and bitter school rivalry, than actual facts and truthfulness. Especially, after it came to light how many of those who were driving the story, both in and out of the media, had very close ties to Auburn's arch rival Bama's Crimson Tides. I don't believe Cam used the recruiter to secure money for his son. I believe the MSU incident was totally isolated and initiated by the recruiter who was an MSU Alumnus.
I will be honest, I was very concerned about Cam coming to Panthers. Especially, seeing that many in the sports media had him on a very short leash to fail and knowing that teams who pick first tend to have more issues with the team than just needing a first draft pick. But, after seeing the schools Cam ended up attending after UF and how far he brought them in just one year, I felt Cam and this team was a perfect fit. The Panthers needed more than just a first round draft pick, they needed someone who would excite the fanbase while serving notice to the rest of NFL that this team wants to be taken seriously.

Just think about it, this time last year many of you were moaning and groaning about Cam being your QB and you were still schaffing from your season ending 2-14 record. Fast forward, you are still complaining but it's with optimism and you are basking in the glow of your QB bringing some postitive energy back to the Panthers. Plus, he's winning awards and making many of you smile as fans.
As an outsider who have been following your ride with Cam, it only put a smile on my face to hear him thank you guys for your support when he collected both his awards tonight. It's like he's really listening, guys. So, stop worrying.
This is a really unsettling post, I don't know what it is about it exactly.
Maybe it's an admitted outsider who has come in and told the rest of us who have been fans since the beginning how we should be feeling.
I mean I'm glad you have entheusiasm and all, but come on.

Damn a "hall," they are going to need a new "Wing/floor" of the building at this rate.
