Just for clarification i never said the quotes were from PFW, just the feature itself.. I still think who ever said that about cam was probably an intern scout for another team or something who never was actually in a Locker room with him or met him in real life lol


Oh, I have no problem with your post or quote anyway; cause the spirit is correct.

It's quite possible that these were BS--low level scouts; ones' who haven't actually watched Cam and stated that (but PFW didn't give that disclaimer), or one of their writers, who used to scout, therefore the title. Who knows?

I can tell you, I knew the hit piece they did on Cam before the draft was total BS, as soon as I heard it. Cause the Miami Herald, and the draft people they work with, did an excellent, UBER extensive draft piece (just like NFL teams would, and the Panthers did on Cam), and they confirmed that all Cam's coaches and teammates from Highschool, Junior College, and Auburn, loved him and said he was a strong, positive natural leader, who was well liked, admired, and stayed out of trouble.

Most of the media didn't talk about the actual research on Cam (which was actually spotless, outside of his Univ Of Florida travails). And instead they just played into media stereotypes that were unfounded or untrue.

It was really a total hit job from so many sources. That's why Warren Moon, and others, were so mad at the poo he took, but nonetheless confident he would succeed and prove them wrong. And he did, of course.

They don't need to make anything up.

Plenty of NFL guys are very free with their words when they know they don't have to attach their name to it.

They've had this feature for years, long before Newton ever came along. Occasionally guys admit to being the ones who said such and such or someone figures it out.


And you can find just about any opinion you go looking for. Ask league guys about the Ryan brothers after a few beers, or about Cutler or Newton. They print the ones that will generate the most mentions or hits.

Newton is the cowboy in black right now for many in the media. He has been cast as a bad guy and it is an opinion shared by many non-Panther fans. So yeah, this stuff will continue until we win. It used to piss me off, because he is, after all, our guy. Now it barely even bothers me.

i wouldn't be a bit surprised if it was from a legit NFL exec. and i expect it was.

not all of them feel the same way about players. some execs like newton, others don't...but that's not a big deal because the same is said for most QBs in the league. aside from maybe brady, rodgers, and brees i'm sure they all have their detractors.

doesn't really matter though. no reason for panties to be all wadded up.

Every great "leader" at the QB position has had a strong leader of a coach standing behind him.

1st paragraph.

This isn't "the media" or "PFW" hatin' on Cam


No, it's just the same old sources that PFW went to pre-draft 2011 where they got the old "fake smile" "bad leader" BS.

Anytime they want to take a shot at Cam, all they have to do is go back to that well.

You think the media who got it wrong dislike Cam? What do you think SCOUTS whose job it (supposedly) is to evaluate players who got it completely and utterly wrong feel? Forgiving?

The only problem is the ones who talk the most likely know the least.

Also what does NFL scout mean?? I watch games pretty closely and try to form opinions on players and teams. Does that make me an NFL scout?

I bet you $100 these are not all guys that are employed by NFL teams and he is talking to draftniks that are technically NFL scouts.


Bet away, but you may wanna read the article heading again...

The following quotes are from NFL scouts, coaches and front-office personnel, speaking on the condition of anonymity.


The notion that there's some ongoing conspiracy by media guys to make him look bad is silly.

There are people in the league who don't like Newton.

So what?

if the coaching staff can ever get this team respectable and winning again then the opinion others have of cam will change.

i expect, tho, that there will always be detractors and that's fine with me. the more the better. i want him hated but i also want him to be so good that his haters are always having to make excuses why he's so good...kind of like pffl did with him and fieryprophet is doing with jim harbaugh and what i did with belichick and brady for so long.

Cam needs to prove he's a leader...win big games and people will think you're a leader. Fail to do it and you'll be Mike Vick.

how can someone who watched cam play his way out of a terrible funk this season say that he's a front runner who only makes bad situations worse? shouldn't we have gone 0-16 then?

except vick "won big games" plenty of times in his career.

the falcon teams he quarterbacked were nowhere near as stacked as atlanta's right now yet vick's teams won a lot more in the playoffs.

No guarantee it's someone who watched every Panther game.

LOL, Cam is a front runner?

He finished the season as one of the best QB's in the league coming off a losing record.
