Cam is the talk bc he broke records as a rookie and he made the Pro Bowl as a rookie for a previous 2 win team. Add to that, he was a national title winner, Heisman, and #1 pick. Add to that his swag and superman gestures and making it look easy last year.
Bottom line is Cam is going to be all the talk. The QB usually is. I work with a ton of Steelers fans, and usually I dont pay any mind to them but they have made some good points about cam and the panthers this year.
1- We put a target on our backs by guaranteeing a Super Bowl win. No team in the NFL likes to hear that and we put the pressure on ourselves and a big target on our backs for other teams to prove us wrong, and they have.
2- Cam put too much pressure on himself. Last season was going to be tough to follow up, but he was going to try, and hes trying TOO hard. Typical sophomore slump where the league adjusts to you, but they think next season he will adjust to the league again and be dominant again.
3- Read option. They said that has destroyed us. Weve talked about this already many times.
4- New Coach - They think we need a coach that came will learn from and respect.
Its just Steeler fans, but they DO know football and to hear them say that Cam Newton will dominate the league in a few years was still music to my ears. He DOES need to grow up, but he will and he will def learn from this season. Just get used to Cam being all the talk from the media when it comes to the Panthers.
