I am just going to make a forum for insecure butt hurt fans that piss themselves when someone doesn't say cam is the greatest of all time.

You already did.

Yes, he brings up the sideline poo AGAIN.

I guess Gil didn't get the memo on the Early Season Chud-Offense Fiasco, huh? LOL

I respect him on many things NFL, and even Cam. However, he doesn't appear to have followed the team and is just winging it for this piece (that's why he left it open, regarding Cam's "unlimited potential", as if Kaepernick and Luck aren't any more raw than Cam right now), with his comments. LOL. Cam has always been active on the sidelines, especially lately, regardless of what and when the media said it. That was a manufactured issue. I'm surprised so many Panther fans--even fall for that.

Now if he's limiting Cam from what he didn't do during the second half of the 2012 season (and totally ignoring what he did during his first season), then how the hell does he have Kaepernick (a guy that's only started 9 games), and even Luck--a rookie ranked higher!? Such a small sample size. I'm sure this list is very fluid and subject to change, but still. Come on Gil.

Makes no sense. But it's all good. I guess, the better way to look at it is: Cam would have been higher on the list, if he didn't have such a poor start (thanks Chud), and if the media started showing him talking to his teammates and coaches more, which he does. SMH/LOL. To each is own.

gil brandt has been one of cam's biggest supporters, esp. prior to the draft.

i don't like the list and don't think it matters, but there's been some things that cam needed to change about the way he handles himself that hopefully was later in the season.

he had his issues last year for sure, not the whole season but definitely the first half.

if the team starts winning, he'll climb up those lists that people apparently put so much stock in. until the team can figure out how to do it consistently and find their way into the playoffs, he'll stay right about where he is.

I've pretty much given up on the media. The bottom line is they don't have the time or desire to dig into film and fully evaluate the players so they look at stats and winning percentage and maybe one or two games. You can't possibly expect them to know as much about Cam as we do. If Cam can keep improving and start winning he will get his credit. Some of those QBs will have "Sophmore slumps" and be tossed out with the trash, this is how the media works.

I love those polls.
1. pocket passer
2. pocket passer
3. pocket passer
32. lump all hybrid QBs here. They're lucky to make my 'special' list.

And of course, Luck is the greatest because if this were his 5th year he'd be great right now. Did I mention he's gonna be great.

Meh, we know how the media is by now.

I did lol at the part about Matt Ryan's INT not being his fault and downplaying his fumble in the NFCG.

Joe Flacco being ranked lower than Matt Ryan with his lone playoff victory is downright criminal.

Biggest problem I have with the list is Luck.

Yes he was asked to do more than the other rookie QBs, but he still didn't do it as well as they did!

Kaepernick also too high based on one amazing game against an unprepared team and a falcons choke.

Nothing wrong with people offering their opinion--agreeing, disagreeing with writers and/or standing up for Cam. That's what this website is about.

Fan's SHOULD BE passionate about Cam. He's a great young QB who plays for the Panthers.

The bigger issue and more embarrassing part, would be if Cam sucked, didn't play so well and didn't have such a bright future, but Huddler's would blindly and passionately defend him anyway. That would be the problem. And until proven otherwise, that is currently [happily] not the case. LOL

Ryan over Flacco is criminal. All of the rest of them over Cam is ridiculous. Matt Ryan is just a slightly better version of Chad Pennington.
