Clark Judge Finally Admits Panthers Made Right Choice With Cam

The Carolina Panthers did a smart thing Tuesday by locking down wide receiver Steve Smith for another three years. But they did a smarter thing a year ago when they stuck to their convictions and chose Auburn quarterback Cam Newton with the first pick of the NFL Draft.

Basically, the Panthers followed one of the draft's most important tenets, which is to be true to yourself -- even if it means making an unpopular or controversial decision. The Panthers were, and look where it has them now.

On the road to recovery.

While Newton's choice was popular with Carolina fans, it wasn't the safest one out there. Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus or LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson were less risky, but you don't put people in seats with a defensive tackle or a cornerback. You put them there with a quarterback who is talented, who is creative and who can win.

The article also goes into great detail on why Hurney should get way more credit on this board: when everyone around Marty was telling him to stay away from Cam he doubled down on his homework and trusted his own intuition instead.

I plan to write a 5000 word rebuttal to this post later.

The comments on this article by the delusional Denver fan are just classic slap-stick comedy gold.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
