The Panthers are going to be good. Maybe sooner than later, and Newton is the key to how soon they succeed. But to call one loss more devastating than another in the brief career of a 23-year old is pure folly.
The media was very critical of Newton’s late game and post-game performance after the Giants game. Count me as one of them. But I don’t believe in beating a dead horse, either. The Panthers are still a team trying to find its way after a long stretch of mediocrity or worse having just four winning seasons in their first 17 years of existence.
Newton cannot pick up a newspaper without seeing a story slamming him nine ways to Sunday or his head coach second-guessed to the point where he now seems more culpable in the loss to the Falcons than Newton was in the Giants embarrassment. The constant barrage has to have an effect on the team. It might eventually become an “us against them” mentality in the clubhouse, and it won’t be about the next opponent.

I cant remember the last First pick overall QB being scrutinized this much for not winning early in his career. Crazy.
i don't think even jamarcus russell had hellfire rained on him quite like this until he had just become a complete joke.

The national media bashing Cam has brought some of us together with getting his back. I think we need to continue to have baby boys back.
He's ours guys, and we have to take care of our own.
I agree. Bears fans defend Cutler tooth and nail. Cowgirls will tell you Romo can get it done no matter how many 5 INT games he has. There's nothing wrong with believing in and getting behind our guy even when he struggles.
