I know the way the business works, and I know Hurney deserves to be under the gun, [b]and I know Cam Newton now is not a sure long-term thing in Carolina, and Hurney wanted Newton as his franchise quarterback.[/b] I'm just saying nothing is ever totally black and white in this game, and Hurney's record should include it all: the questionable free agent spending, the unlikely Super Bowl run in 2003, the three playoff berths in 10 seasons, the inability to get Carolina out of a losing funk over the past four seasons.

Can't believe no one is talking about this. How does Peter King (who knows a ton of people around football and close to many situations) 'know' that Cam Newton is not a sure long-term thing? Is Cam on his way out? I hate how King teases this and then offers nothing as to what he's heard

Mainly because Peter King rarely knows what he's talking about.

Thats simply not true I would argue that he "hears" more than any writer or reporter in the business and it's always got some truth behind it. He has numerous NUMEROUS people he talks to surrounding every NFL franchise he's been doing this for 20+ years.

He's also a borderline retarded journalist who writes articles and blogs vying for the attention of football enthusiasts worldwide. Of course he's going to add some flair to his opinions to desperate himself from the rest of the jackoff sports media machine.

But I thought our owner said something to the effect of: 'Cam Newton is the only QB I want in Charlotte for the rest of my lifetime' or something like that?

You know how King knows? He doesn't. You know why he said he does? Because this thread and your link.

That statement is 100% opinion and in no way based on any statements or secret whispers coming from our organization. He's saying that he's not a 100% sure long term solution based on his own personal assessment of his play this year.
