Welcome to Prime Time. Charlotte has a superstar so the rest of the world pays attention. They'll all jump on the bandwagon when he wins and hate him like someone who takes their skills to southbeach.

." This comes on the heels of Newton sulking on the Panthers bench to end last week's game, but this cartoon seems as out of touch as the existence of newspaper cartoons in general. Would we see an Indianapolis paper take on Peyton Manning in his second year or even a New York paper take on Eli Manning like this? Did the St. Louis Post-Dispatch mock Sam Bradford last year? All of those No. 1 picks did less than Newton as rookies. Newton's rookie season is the one that all rookies are now be measured by . Just three games into an up-and-down year, it's clear the locals expect a lot more out of him in 2012.

Hi, I'm here to check in on all the cry babies who see Cam as their son and like to protect him from people picking on him.


When the people "picking" on him are the ones that are supposed to be supporting him then yes there is a problem with that. I don't care if the Observer were the ones that came up with the cartoon or not they still allowed it to be published that's bullshit.

Is it against some unspoken code to criticize your QB as a fan?

Our fanbase sure got used to it with Collins and Delhomme so I don't see why people view all of the Cam criticism as such an odd thing unless they became fans when we got Cam. Learn to be a fan of a franchise with an aspiring icon and entertainer and by that I mean expect this type of sh*t on a near daily basis

I don't expect the Charlotte media to throw him under the bus especially when he isn't the problem. Like a few posts above yours have you heard about the St. Louis media throwing bradford under the bus? What about Peyton in Indy? Brady in NE? There are some things you don't do the media needs to let this "sulking" bs go and quit beating a dead horse.

And btw that isn't criticizing that is just childish BS.

Again, like the article I posted from NFL.com, we didn't see this from Bradford or Eli in their second years.
