They discussed what it would take for him to be MVP. The thought is get into the playoffs and win at least one game and put up stats kind of like last year and he has a great shot. We get to the NFC championship (win or lose) he should be a shoe in.

Other thoughts, I love the fact we have 3 RB's tied up to good money. The NFL Is Cyclical. For the last few years it has been spread it out and sling it, but Baltimore and moreso San Fran is getting back to going bigger, run the ball and play action while playing great Defense. That is what I see us doing and I hope so.

Cam will always be a HUGE threat to run, then you combine that with our FB/RB this team could be looking at several division titles and a couple superbowl runs if we can finish shoring up the D under Rivera and I think that will happen.

It is great to have Panthers football back!

if we had a D last year, he would have been in the MVP talks last season.

also, I don't get after a record setting season, 2 breaking Marino's record, Cam breaking Peyton's, more 5k and 4k passers than anyt ime in NFL history......yet people are convinced teams are going to start lining up and going back to 2 yards and a cloud of dust type football.

Except we averaged 5.4 yards per carry. You take that all day if you can get it. There's a difference.

We also but an emphasis on the deep ball/pass.....and Newton distorts rushing numbers. We weren't playing smash mouth football last season when we were the most efficient running attack in franchise history. We were running our of passing formations a heavy percentage of time.

Cam, DeAngelo and Jonathan all averaged over 5 YPC. And I think people are overthinking this: the front office didn't drag 15 receivers to camp just to run the football all day, they're going to continue running the same vertical threat system we had last year. However, we want to have a running game that teams have to worry about in order to make our passing game even more lethal.

All Cam should be able to do to get MVP is pray his team win more than lose and make it into the paly offs. I don't recall anyone saying that in order for Peyton to be MVP he would have to do better than his rookie season's personal best. Why are we doing it to Cam. He been there done that. It's time to conquer other mountains.

Too early to talk MVP. Pro Bowl, yes.
Though, if Cam can win a couple games early and fast, his name should be up there. But if we start out losing, it doesn't matter how many 400 yds gms, and rushing tds Cam have, his name won't be in the talk.

Yes everything IS Cyclical in the NFL and San Fran was two stupid fumbles away from the superbowl by doing just that.

I don't give a damn about 'boring'. We can rush 800x per year and just toss it 50 if it gets the Lombardi in our hands.

You have to throw it a lot when the D gives up a lot. If the D shores up you can bet we will run much more than pass.

No matter what decade, that is winning football

i doubt the panthers become a run heavy team anytime soon. something that gets lost in all these rb's contract talks is that they will also factor in the passing game
