Don't credit that to a "me me me" attitude though. The man was trying to make a play. I will agree that it was too late and was probably a bad decision. The DE just held containment perfectly on both of them until the last second. I think it can work, but just not as the primary running formation. Mixed in, with a QB like Cam, it can be deadly.


Mixed in yes it can work, as our primary running play being used 10-15 times per game it will fail, especially when you are playing a defensive line like the Giants.

Also it sure didn't help starting Gary Williams at RT he was over matched all day long... mental lapses or not we should have had Campbell playing RT last night he could have at least matched up athletically with them, am I the only one who noticed Williams arms are far to short to play tackle.

Not by us, by NFL fans. He's also not HOF bound, sadly.

He's not HOF bound by you sadly, but he is by me. I guess we'll find out in time.

I love me some Smitty, but all he's managed to do here by not keeping it between himself and Cam is elevate his OWN status and reputation and give the national press all the fuel it needs to continue to trash his quarterback's.

So if that was his goal, mission accomplished.

If his goal was something other than that, then he did it wrong, period, end-of-story.

The haters are having the time of their lives now. I bet Nolan Nawrocki and his ilk are grinning from ear to ear. "See... toldja. Thanks Steve Smith!"

This whole situation is so jacked up... I didn't see this anywhere else and just now found it in the ESPN article. I searched to see if it was already in this thread and didn't see it, so here it is:
http://espn.go.com/n...back-cam-newton

Gross, a longtime teammate of Smith's at Utah and with the Panthers, said he doesn't have a problem with Newton's demeanor. And he didn't think anything needed to be said about Newton outside of the locker room.

"Cam wears his heart on his sleeve and you know how he's feeling based on his actions," Gross said. "He wants to win as much as anybody, and when we don't, he takes it to heart. I would like any of my teammates, if they're upset about things, to talk it out with us in the locker room, and know that we're all in it together."


Smith knows he might take some criticism for calling out Newton, but doesn't care. Smith said he hopes the lesson will pay off for Newton down the road when he's retired and the quarterback is setting NFL records.

"If this is something wrong for saying that, well, I'd rather be wrong and one day during his long career he goes, 'Ah, I hated to hear that, but maybe that's what Smitty was talking about,' " Smith said.


I don't blame Smitty, but Smitty is a different kind of guy. But, I also understand where Gross is coming from. Either way, our locker room is fractured right now.

Smitty made a poor decision running to the media throwing his QB under the bus like that. I have no problem with how he feels or what he said, but airing Cam out like that aint cool.

I would expect nothing less from Smith... he knows his time in the NFL is winding down, and he knows that possibly barring a trade that him getting a SB ring lies squarely with Cam Newton....

I agree with Smith. His window is running down and needs to get things in control.

You're not gonna win a superbowl when you're QB freaks out and starts crying after a pick.

I'm shocked that you would take this position. Shocked.

It doesnt hurt me a bit.
Cam's ego is starting to go out of control.

Its time Smitty put him on a reality check.
Smitty will never win a Super Bowl bc of poor decision on JR part.



Amazing how the kid who was ripped by the media has a camera in his face where every pout or move he makes is recorded and scrutinized. I guess the media is very much hell-bent to continue pushing their mindset that Cam is another VY. I guess we all are in the eyes of some. UNLESS, they say otherwise.

Where's the camera when all these VETS sulk when they don't play well? Oh yes, it's the usual smearing that is always being done by the our media against a QB they don't care for.

YES, CAM IT'S YOUR FAULT THE PANTHERS LOST. EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS YOUR FAULT BECAUSE IT'S SIMPLY EASY TO MAKE YOU THE SCAPE-GOAT CAUSE YOUR NOT A MEDIA DARLING.
