The Charlotte Observer pokes fun at Cam Newton?

Oh word?

Remember my thread about how Charlotte media won't call out Hurney/JR

Exactly.

I don't have an issue with public personalities being criticized for their behavior but Cam's behavior was not the important story.

The important story, the one a real "big city" newspaper would tell, is how this team has consistently grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory for almost two decades with their poor management decisions.

If the best the Observer can do is editorial cartoons, here is an idea for one:

Jerry Richardson as the king with no clothes, Marty Hurney as the king's tailor, throwing away the king's money like a madman on invisible cloth and thread. Both of them parading around Trade and Tryon naked, waving to the masses with a starving panther by their side, totally oblivious to how ridiculous they appear.

A good coach could take the talent on this team and win...but that's really not the issue...the issue is teams come out and play their game plan against Rivera and he does nothing to adjust and even when the Panthers are in the game poor play calls, clock management and bend not break defense mentality kill our chances of winning close games.

Rivera is not a good coach. That's obvious. Why should we have to wait 2 or 3 years to achieve 500? One year is enough and in my opinion too much in the NFL. The only break I'll give Rivera was the lockout...that's over....there are no excuses for the poor coaching I've seen.

1-2 in first three games of a 16 game season...fire him. it's obvious that he sucks from that small sample.

gotcha. you're not over-reacting at all.

Oh, the famous You Can't Have Fun At The Expense Of Your QB In Their Second Year Rule! Someone needs to tell the Observer that ASAP.

MY GOD, I have never seen so many spineless, hillbilly, mama's boys in my life. Give me one good reason why the Observer should suck the teat of every single Panthers player? Right, there is none. They are in the business of putting news online, and in their print edition. They are not affiliated with the Panthers in any way. Just as we like to vent over piss poor games by our team here on the Huddle, the paper's writers have every right to do the same. GUESS WHAT... they do. Why don't you get all upset when they give Cam a bad grade or talk poorly of him in an article? Hell, even Zod would give Cam less than As or Bs in his little game grade post if he played like ass. This just happens to be a cartoon... a "poor performance article" depicted in a drawing. Get a grip. This is what papers do. Forget that thing I wrote at the start, as whomever did their research surely didn't look at every St. Louis and Indianapolis newspaper from years ago. I bet my damn life NY papers thrashed Eli's play when he was a youngin'.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you have NO connection to Cam. Why do you get so butthurt when someone speaks poorly of him? Is your life that pathetic that you have to latch on to him and this team like he's your own child and the team means the world to you? Do you walk around town with Panthers colors on like some sort of gang member feeling you have to protect your turf? It's sad guys. And you've made me act like you and rant and moan. I won't let it happen again.

This. It's a cartoon. I know it's tough but really try and put everything in perspective. The reactions on here remind me of a little kid saying "mommy they're making fun of me".

What is the saying paraphrased:

'One loss can happen. Two is an issue. Three is a trend'

We will see a lot about Rivera and his coaching staff this weekend.

i repeatedly ask myself why 'lesser' teams can rise up on occasional and beat the favorite.

Not the Panthers.

Perhaps they will stop the trend this weekend.

Betting money says 'no'.

I would like to hope otherwise.

I don't even have the words to express how stupid this statement is.

Wow that is ridiculous I mean if the city of Charlotte doesn't appreciate Cam Newton and everything he has done for us so far then maybe he should leave at the end of his rookie contract that's pathetic.

Cam has done a lot for Cam. Which means he is a lightning rod for criticism.

Doing the Superman when your QBR is around 15 and you are getting spanked on prime-time in one of the worst losses in franchise history...I don't owe him poo.

Still waiting for this team to deliver a winning season.

Are you serious? Elite quarterbacks like peyton, eli manning, Drew Brees were poo in their first couple of seasons, Aaron Rodgers was able to sit behind favre for years and learn from him without putting his feet to the fire, he may have very well been poo just like the other elite quarterbacks his first few years.

It takes time to develop quarterbacks there is no proof otherwise that it doesn't.

It's a sad day when a Saints fan has one of the more reasonable posts in a thread...

Very well done. It is a bit more extreme than I think is warranted, but there is at least as much truth in this than dumping all our problems on the 23 year old QB.

I called Rivera from day one. He is a serviceable coach maybe. He is not a Superbowl coach no matter what the talent.

I don't like being right on these things but it's a cross to bear.

I went to see my ex coworker and he from N.C, and he asked did I see this about Cam. We both called it bullshit and he said it just added more fuel to the fire
