Sports Blog By Panther Fan...

I use the term FAN loosely, because after reading this I sincerely have my doubts. Even if he did try to soften that by saying he's a PSL owner and all that. While it was very well written, I get the vibe that this person is nit-picking at any little thing. Almost grasping for straws so to speak..

I don't know who wrote this [url="http://notanothercollegesportsblog.blogspot.mx/2012/05/cam-newton.html"]article[/url] but I stumbled upon it today.


[quote]My biggest concern right now is our starting quarterback, Cam Newton. Newton has only played in the NFL for one season but he has had a huge impact. He has set numerous records including: most passing yards for a rookie, most total touchdowns for a rookie, most passing yards in one game for a rookie, most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season, along with many other records. So was the rookie season a success for Mr. Newton? Yes. Was the rookie season a success for the Panthers? Not quite. The team went 6-10 and looked bad for most of the season. The team won 4 of the last 6 games but none of the games were competitive. The best win of the season was in week 15 when the Panthers beat the Texans (a team who had already clinched a playoff spot and rested most of their starters). The other 3 wins came against the Colts (1-15) and the Buccaneers (4-12). At the end of the season I was not satisfied with the results. My team had a "strong" finish to a mediocre season.[/quote]


Perspective is a wonderful thing right? I was satisfied that they turned it around and didn't end up with a top 3 pick..

[quote] In the Pro Bowl I think Cam Newton embarrassed himself. In a game where the corners can't press the receivers, blitzes can't be called, and there is no intentional grounding, Cam Newton managed to throw 3 interceptions and get sacked twice. Now I know the Pro Bowl is meant to be fun but his performance was dreadful. As a rookie, you need to pay your dues to the league. You need to work hard to show your peers that you are serious about being a Pro Bowl player. Andy Dalton, also a rookie, took his role seriously. He went 7-9 with 2 touchdowns. Eric Weddle, another first-time Pro Bowler, played his heart out. He didn't go out and treat the Pro Bowl as a joke; he went out to prove himself to his peers. Newton, on the other hand, seemed content to play for fun and take this experience for granted. Newton should have made the most out of this experience especially under the circumstances. He was a replacement for Eli Manning who couldn't participate since his team was playing in the Superbowl. Cam Newton was lucky to escape with only 3 interceptions. Many of his passes were not accurate and the defense had their hands on the ball before the receivers did. Newton was not prepared for the Pro Bowl. He was hoping to use this as a platform to prove how great he was but instead he made a fool of himself. If Newton makes it to the Pro Bowl again, I certainly hope he takes it seriously (and tucks in his shirt). I have come to two conclusions based off his Pro Bowl play. Either Cam Newton thinks he has already "made it" in the NFL and has nothing to prove [i]or[/i] Cam Newton isn't good enough to play with the best players in the NFL. (I find [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nhv9uXMUEec"]this[/url] unacceptable. Where is the intensity or your competitive side?)[/quote]


...wow. The pro bowl is the be all end all of your career apparently.


[quote]Right now, I am not sold that Cam Newton is a great quarterback. His passing yardage and rushing numbers were good during his rookie season so maybe he should be used as a running back who can throw or even a tight-end. I am concerned that the fans in Carolina are willing to sit through 6-10 seasons as long as they have an exciting quarterback to watch. I am concerned that Newton will not respond well if things do not go his way. I am concerned about the future of my team. I know this is not the popular opinion right now but there is an argument to be made. You can't only look at the good in a player and refuse to see their faults. Good stats aren't the only thing that matter (Look at Lebron James. ZING!). [b] I think there is a spot for Cam Newton on this team but I do not think it is at quarterback.[/b][/quote]


That last sentence baffles me. Who else would you want to play QB? I'm trying to understand his logic, but I just cannot. Clausen? Anderson? Armanti? lol wut?!

No body takes the pro-bowl seriously and this jackass just made it the meat of his argument. He makes absolutely no sense throughout that entire article, it was absolutely horrible.

I got through the 1st paragraph thinking okay he is on to something making until he started discrediting our last 6 games, but Texans were still playing for a high seed, and that same TJ Yates had won them some games before we beat them, and they didn't rest their starters for that game, Colts started playing harder (especially the DEF) around the time we played them, even thought their offense reminder me of ours in 2010, only team that really just got rolled on was the Bucs, and we went in limping vs the Saints*.

The Pro Bowl was food to feed the trolls, Cam played horrible, but he had a couple of Saints* Olinr blocking half ass for him, while the AFC team was trying to go full team, Cam watched Rodgers and Brees with 5 minutes to throw the ball, but then when he stepped in he had pressure before he even received the snap,

Cam not being our QB, we should shot this man.

I can't say that I disagree. I would have said a very concerned fan, but after reading it. Nope. I can't say that.

Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!

He's willing to blame Cam for the 6-10 record, but no mention of the defense that was bad unfortunately. Injury plagued and all. No mention.


[quote]Newton has received an unprecedented amount of hype through his rookie season. In my opinion, it is not warranted. Let's do a blind test. Quarterback #1 threw for 3,398 yards, completed 58% of their passes, threw 20 touchdowns, 13 interceptions, was sacked 24 times, led their team to a 9-7 record and made the playoffs. Quarterback #2 threw for 4,051 yards, completed 60% of their passes, threw 21 touchdowns, 17 interceptions, was sacked 35 times, led their team to a 6-10 record and did not make the playoffs. Which quarterback would you rather have on your team? Quarterback #1 is rookie Andy Dalton and quarterback #2 is Cam Newton.[/quote]

Another example of not fully researching or mentioning all the variables. The Bengals Defense was amazing. What would our Record look like if it had a defense like the Bengals last year?


@SetfreexX, GTFO if you don't want to read this. No one forced you to.

This is PFFL's blog. For anyone new, he was the scourge of this board last year. After his 30th alt was banned, he went to the Broncos' board to try to sell the idea that Tebow was a much better QB than Cam.

I think most of us here came to the conclusion that the guy has some "issues".

Why even give idiots like that hits? Not everything with the word "Panthers" in it has to be linked here.

Lock this crap.

And the "which would you rather" question is laughable... Because I would pick QB2, easily.

Yeah, we really should find another position for that Cam Newton guy, I mean he only put up 4k yards and 21 passing TD's as a rookie.

That makes perfect sense if this were PFFL's blog. How did you figure that out Marguide?? I kept thinking as I read it that this was clearly a Newton hater and a pretty poor writer, both hallmarks of PFFL's posts. Well they went for the not your typical sports blog and they surely got it. I am sorry I wasted the time it took to read it.... It was clearly a piece of crap not even worthy of a Saints** fan.

Cam is just a lightening rod.

There is no inbetween on this kid.

There is no doubt he is a great athelete.

There is no doubt based on statistics that he had an incredible rookie season.

The bench marks for success this year will be much much higher. Can he avoid turn-overs? Can he keep his chin up when things are difficult? Can he lead this team on a game winning drive in the 4th quarter against quality competition.

That's how great QBs are judged. I hope he can.

Conversely, the defense for once needs to make a stop when it needs to and the special teams need to be special (stop someone, make the tough punt, for the love of God, Mare make a meaningful field goal).

Point being yes, there are other parts but with the QB position they are forgotten.ccc

For p55, all I had to do was read about 1 paragraph and I knew it was him.

Unfortunately, his "logic" and writing style is burned into my memory.

Guess he dropped his Tebow love when he was traded, and went back to his 1st beau, Andy Dalton.

this is torture. i have to commend any of you who made it through that shitburger.

seriously i'll just pick a random sentence and we'll talk about how it's wrong:

[i]Newton needs to take a lesson from fellow NFC South quarterback Josh Freeman. Freeman had comparable rookie season and at the end of the season there was talk about him being a star. In his sophomore season he did not produce.[/i]

yeah except freeman's rookie season was horrible and what he's actually thinking of is his sophomore campaign where the bucs went 10-6 and missed the playoffs by a hair.

i'm not necessarily sure that this is PFFL on second thought. no mention of YPP, no dr. phil quality psychoanalysis, and no tebow references or his various other hallmarks. what got lost in his awful posting here was that he also fancies himself a "writer" and while it's true that he tried to get people to read terrible articles he wrote and post on some forum he created that i assume still has tumbleweeds rolling across it, that's not what was posted here iirc.

i can't keep my eyes off this article. it's just a hypnotically awful piece of work. trying to make sense of it is like peeling a befouled onion where every subsequent layer unleashes a water balloon full of piss at your face.

[quote] I don't think it is fair to pad your stats when your team is down 15 points with 3 minutes to go in the 4th quarter (GB game). While his stats were impressive, the manner that he picked up the stats were not as impressive. (This is impressive).[/quote]

so what were we supposed to do down two scores late-kneel it out? or maybe just punt it away so cam wouldn't be "padding his stats" desperately bombing it downfield trying to put up points? what a tool.

this person is not a PSL holder. his daddy bought PSLs back when he was a five year old playing with dinosaur toys so he goes to the games.

I'm still convinced it is one of his vanity blogs. He doesn't talk about YPP anymore because by the end of the season, the data didn't fit his argument. Tebow got traded, so he is soiled now. It's better to talk about Dalton.

Whoever it is, it is apparent they watch a different game than the rest of us.

LOL, totally missed that. Which makes it even worse.. It's mind numbing for sure though. I know I kept thinking to myself as I read this, "Is this guy for real?".

I just thought of a lot of posters in the huddle when I read this blog. There's a lot of people that think this way. It's really a sad way of looking at things. It's pessimistic and debbie downer-ish. One thing is to criticize but to nit pick every little thing? Good god man..
