Not bad points, but I dunno about the "no one wanted to draft him but Carolina" part. The Bills were supposedly very interested and going to take him if we didn't. I'm sure there's a few other teams that would have taken him in the first if he were available. And I don't think "him being from the South so he's more likely to sell tickets" had anything to do with it either.

I can't wait for the season. The Panthers face so many doubters it drives me up a wall. While I do think we are a season away from being a perennial power in the NFC, this season will still be one to remember.

uhh, Gabbert has far more to prove... Cam has already shown he can play in this league, Gabbert has a hell of a long ways to go.

I think he has the most to lose, but Gabbert and Ponder have MUCH more to prove.

They did not draft Cam to sell tickets. They drafted him to win games. That's what GM's and coaches care about. Winning.
What sells tickets? Winning.

Amazing, that Jamie Dukes somehow waddled pass security and didn't start blabbering into every conversation in our building where our front office was looking at Cam from every anlge. I didn't know he was in the interviews where Chud and Shula both came out saying the kid could run a pro style offense. I didn't know Jamie took notes on Rivera's opening press conference in stating the importance of a franchise quarterback.

Our franchise took Cam Newton to selll tickets by winning games. They knew it was a risk, but a calculated one and it payed off. Maybe the Falcons homer should do his research before blabbering his mouth and give credit where it is due.
