Cam has already changed the NFL

126 posts in this topic

The great thing about Cam is, he always made it exciting. Even when we lost, I was still excited about the potential we have. In previous years, we would lose and it got to the point where I wasn't as pumped to watch the next game. I have watched every single game the last 6 years, and now you can expect some great plays every game. That is the Cam Effect, he always gives you the confidence that you can win every single game. RG3 will be the same for the Skins games, even though his has not taken a snap.

Oh i agree 100% but lets not pretend both aren't near the bottom. Hopefully having two franchise quarterbacks will change that.

If you look at all 32 teams in that span.....Skins are at the bottom. Panthers are more middle of the road.

But unless you at the top I don't guess it really matters too much

No i do not. Once camp is in full swing and RG3 has a poor practice or two i expect a few negitive headlines and on-air rants.

This is why drafting Kirk Cousins in the 4th round was the worst selection in the draft.

One or two bad games in a row, and the whispers will start.

Instead of using the pick to build around RG3, they waste it on another rookie QB, except this one has NO PRESSURE on him.

I got a feeling Cousins starts a game or two this year.

That would be a negative ghost rider,

Cam brought some of the bad press on himself but the comparisons of him to other "black QB's" was hog wash, now that a "black QB" has taken over the league, and yes it only takes one year now for someone to have "arrived", QB's who fit that mold will have a perceptibly easier time convincing the talking heads that they are the next big thing. RG3 has absolutely earned a lot of his praise but he would have gone through what Cam did if Cam hadn't set the league on fire last year.

See thats the problem right there. Cam, hasn't taken over the league. He put up some amazing numbers sure but he is nowhere near the "Super hero" Panther fans claim him to be. I didn't see his name in the MVP hunt so "taking over the league" is a little far fetched IMO.

Honestly though, It is not just Panthers fans. Cam is all over the place. Look at his jersey sales.

And RG3 led all jersey sales for May.

Hey troll his name was no where near the Heisman list two years ago. He didn't start getting hype until week5 of his amazing year at Auburn.

I haven't looked at which one of the, ya know, thousands of "MVP Hunt" lists out there. In fact, I haven't even seen one. But I bet I could make a list right now that would be pretty damn close to what every one else is saying:

1. Tom Brady

2. Drew Brees

3. Aaron Rodgers

4. Peyton Manning

5. Eli Manning

Sound about right?

You idiot redskins fans better pray RG3 is half the player Cam was LY or it's back to the NFCEast cellar in which you've lived the past 6 years. Get a clue, or better yet, get a name/PW to a redskins forum.

If RG3 is worried about some 4th round 3 string quarterback than he isn't the man everyone thinks he is. Here's the thing, he's not worried.

Now those are 5 guys who HAVE taken over the league. Good job.

No doubt. Cam is the face of Under Armor, the fastest growing/hottest selling sports gear out there right now, has high jersey sales, and is one of 2-3 NFL players to be endorsed by Gatorade.

Not to mention it's damn near impossible to not click on a sports website and see some article on Cam & the panthers.

PS: Do you think Florio and his NBC affiliated ProFootBallTalk, who basically have their pick of any sports writer available, chose Darin Gantt because they want to know how Thomas Davis' knee is rehabbing? No, Cam is one of the hottest players and a true phenom.

    • Was the reason I originally started watching the NFL and the Panthers and got me as obsessed as I am today.  Will forever be my favorite player. Wasn't always a role model but he's grown up a lot. He's a great father, family man, and I'd put his heart and will up against anyone's. 
    • I know the ACA only tenders subsidies up to 400% above the poverty level.  If you are on the border line you might want to consider,  am I doing better by working more hours or not ?
    • I'm glad peppers is back, but I really feel like we are going to be doing something special this year and i want smitty to be a part of it. he needs to at least finish his career here, but i think he's got a toughness and a fire that we need to get back. no more mr. nice guy. we tried that. this team, for whatever, isn't liked around the league, esp. among fans and the media and there's no amount of good things we can do to change that perception. we need to own it and be the next team that everyone hates, but can't deny the power of. We have the potential to be the next dynasty. I'm not sold that rivera is the one to lead that unless he goes 100% back to being riverboat and never regresses (which i am not counting on). I don't want us to cheat, but I do want us to be that team that will punch you in the face if you dare get in our way and then dance over you when we've gotten to our goal.   btw, the change in celebration rules kind of sets the stage nicely for a smitty return. he can show these young ones how it's done.
