Last year, everybody was loving Cam. Fans of teams not in Charlotte liked him, media liked him, he got endorsements. Now everybody is quick to break him down and hate on him. We got so used to him being a media darling that now that everybody hates on him we get offended. My question is, do you think Cam will be like Steve Smith has been for the last decade? A dominant player that we as panthers fans love to death, but the outside NFL world thinks he's a punk and constantly brings up his past and rags on the guy?

I'm over people liking him. I hope he dominates like Smitty has, takes us to a Superbowl, and everyone on the outside can get bent.

As we transition back to a pro offense we will see Cam get back to the level we saw him at last season.

He did great last season when we ran effectively and when we called real plays. It will take some time getting back to that though

I dont think the outside world sees him as a punk, immature sure, but no punk.... Had a Bears fan calling Cam a bitch cause "he doesnt take ownership of the losses & throws his teammates under the bus". Little ironic a Bears fan calling another QB a bitch...

Id like to see Cam & Keuchly follow Smittys footsteps & not wear another jersey for the duration of their careers...God willing, knock on wood, keep pounding.....

No, Cam will never act like Steve Smith. Cam is too far out there with positive vibes in the real world not dominated by illegitimate sports writers and talkers who are searching so hard for a Cam story that they're making stuff up. "Did you see Cam Newton just quietly walk back to the bench?" WTF I also don't see Cam ever losing his temper as Smitty does and that's a good thing.

Besides, Smitty never had Katy Perry hanging all over him.

Makes you wonder, because in 3-4 years when Cam is no longer under contract or is being tagged, other teams with franchise QB's like Mannings, Brady, Brees, Rogers...they will be getting up there in age, if not retired already. In 3-4 years Cam might be the hottest QB in free agency, esp. if he demands a trade.

It could end up costing carolina too much to keep him. Just have to wait and see how this team builds during Cam's contract years.

You mean hall of fame talent continuously held back by incompetent management? Maybe.

Newton will be the best player to ever wear a Panther uniform while in his prime.

WHO CARES. You guys need to leave this board and read TMZ or Parez Hilton if you care so strongly about how people view the players.

People will love him again if he wins, it's that fickle and that simple.

Your whole shtick has gotten really old. Contrary to what you may have learned in your first year of grad school, it doesn't make you cool to hang around a group of people that all have similar interests and constantly spit your antithetic one-liners.

There are some similarities, but they are two very different players.

89 will be loved forever and no receiver will replace him rightfully for a long time. But Cam has the ability to do something Smith couldn't do all on his own, and that's win a championship. When that happens, Cam will be loved by the Carolina's like no athlete has ever been loved in the Carolina's before.
