A lot of praise for Newton, I hope his crystal ball is right.

Holy crap, that is the most unreserved praise for Cam and the Panthers I've ever heard from the media.

He'll be getting some hate mail from the haters pronto.

I am rolling with the Panthers as a 10-win type team and an outfit very much capable of derailing the playoff power structure.

entirely possible.

can you think of any player in the history of football who has accomplished as much as newton has in his 1 year at blinn, 1 year at auburn and 1 year in the nfl? the pace this kid is on is unreal, and at every level he enters we see him make tremendous strides in different aspects of his game.

the issues will arise when we are perennial playoff contenders. then we find out if Newton is a Michael Jordan or a LeBron James (although he'll probably have his ring very soon).

No, its just crazy, like saying Newton will be greatest rookie quarterback of all time at the 2011 NFL Draft.

Everyone here would loved it, but not one of us would have even came close to sticking our reputation to that prediction, much like saying we're going to be a Dynasty in 2012. Yeah, I want it to happen but like i said, it would be crazy, even for me, to say that without us at least winning a SB.

Here's the Cam Newton part:

Cam Newton: Icon
Cam Newton is a football god, and the Panthers are for real. Newton's meteoric rise was the most underreported phenomenon of the entire NFL in 2011. This cat runs like a receiver (or running back when required to run through someone), throws like John Elway, is built like a linebacker and is, pure and simple, one of the greatest athletes we have ever seen at any time playing any position. He also happens to play quarterback, the single most important position of any team sport in the history of modern athletics.


In the process of awakening the Panthers offense and beginning to reverse the fortunes of the franchise, Newton became the greatest scoring threat as a rusher we have ever seen under center, threw a ridiculous deep ball and revitalized Steve Smith's career, and all the while displayed unflappable confidence and maturity. Cam's transformational skills, and instant, well-ahead-of-schedule development into a complete quarterback are the qualities that have Panthers fans dreaming of dynasties.


Because he is that dominant, and the Panthers will have that kind of a franchise-changer on their books, for a fixed, cheap cost, for years to come, I don't fear to throw that 'dynasty' word around, despite how early in his career Newton is.


He will be a once-in-a-generation figure. He will change the way we think about what's possible from the quarterback position. Newton should be celebrated for what I promise you he'll become: a football savior. He will transcend this sport, and Carolina will learn from its youthful mistakes from 2011, when they easily could have won nine games or more. They gave away some games as kids then; that won't be the case much longer.

I am rolling with the Panthers as a 10-win type team and an outfit very much capable of derailing the playoff power structure.

Don't like to read this type of nut-hugging stuff from the media before the season starts, it usually ends up jinxing us....
