The Charlotte Observer pokes fun at Cam Newton?

Charlotte Observer picks on the pro bowl QB; instead of directing anything at Rivera or Chud, etc. Mcdermott.

B/c no one outside of Charlotte knows who those guys are. Thing is, they want to sell papers. SO it was a smart move. But the newspaper business is a slimy one as a whole. This is brutal

Remember that time the Tampa-Tribune start bashing Freeman profusely last year? Yeah, me neither.

Are you going to cry yourself to sleep over this?

It's a shame our fan base has to be associated with the decision makers that let this happen.

Bucs Q&A: Is Josh Freeman still a franchise quarterback?

Have a question about the Bucs? Tribune reporters Roy Cummings and Ira Kaufman will answer it. Submit your question now.

Q: Anybody still think Josh Freeman is a franchise/elite quarterback? I think he's just more flotsam left in the wake of the Raheem Morris regime. And to think we traded up in the first round for RaheemMorris's Kansas State "homeboy." Even Vincent Jackson and Dallas Clark seemed disgusted with him during the game. What do you think?

A. Freeman turns out to be mediocre, the Bucs could be in serious trouble for years. He's still young, and he showed tremendous potential in 2010 before regressing last year. He definitely played poorly at Dallas, but Freeman's protection was suspect and I didn't see much separation for his targets. Still, he's got to do a lot better to prompt a long-term contract offer.

Nobody buys newspapers at all much less because of a satirical cartoon.

Yea but adding to the fire like that after all the criticizim cam has already been receiving this week is pretty weak. If anyone deserved that it should have been one if not all of the coaches.

Totally agree. I'll never visit their site again and I unfollowed their twitter and all their reporters. F them.

You guys want this team, city, and fanbase to grow, but you can't handle the first taste of big bully media?

Grow a sack, guys.
