I love how no one here is capable of having a conversation without flaming. I'm asking a serious question.

What makes you so sure Cam wouldn't be willing to take a little less money to be in a much better situation with a better chance of winning.

Because he knows if we suck it will be at least partly due to him. We have receivers and running backs to help him and our defense was top 10. Truth is he was as much the reason we struggled as anyone else. He knows it as well. Besides where is he going to go?? Most teams who are clearly better than us already have their franchise guy on board.

Ok really!! Why are people bringing up this crap. Cam was drafted by us and he will get paid. End of story. Do you think that the Panthers will just draft him at number 1 overall and let him walk that quick. LOL No. Unless Cam all of a sudden starts playing like Pickles. Then he is going to be here for years to come and will get a nice contract. Depending on how well he plays and how far he gets team in the playoffs in the next few years. Bottomline stop bringing up this crap about leaving when his rookie contract is up. He will not be going any where unless we franchise him trade him for a few number 1 overalls pick. If Cam wants to go to another team in 2 years. We will tender him and we will get some very nice picks for him.

Honestly, I'd say just things play out a little. We have a new FO regime going into their first offseason, so give 'em a chance to leave their mark.

Also, I doubt we'd just let Cam walk that easily. There are ways to keep players in place i.e. Franchise tag and QBs rarely just up and leave their teams unless traded. How many big name QBs have you seen hit FA in recent memory?

because we thought enough about him to draft him #1 overall. Because the fans adore him here. Because JR will make sure he is paid ridiculous money to stay here for his career. Because by the time that time comes, we will have a great young defense, young talented O-line, and young talented play-makers. He will stay a Panther. No way a team ever lets a franchise QB just leave like that.



I stopped reading here. Well done, sir.

That's why JR fired Hurney and hired Gettleman. To take care of problems like this.

I'm not sure... Having said that, there is evidence that he won't leave the second his contract is up.
1) Franchise tag. That pretty much seals it right there, but let's continue...
2) JR will pay him well for his efforts.
3) Which teams do you see as missing the proverbial "final piece of the puzzle in 2 years?
4) Of those teams, which ones' "final piece" is OB?

As a side note, the reason people are flaming you is that we don't have "just two years to get the pieces around him" as evidenced by point one.

Why did Steve Smith want to stay here all these years?

People really underestimate the emotional attachment players begin to have with teams.

Now, I'm not saying Newton wouldn't leave us, though I certainly hope not. He very well could. But just because we aren't a good team doesn't make it a guarantee or even close. Maybe Cam stays because he feels we're on the upside (which I don't see why it is so crazy for some of you to fathom - we're better than a lot of people on this site make us out to be; not some top flight team by any means but certainly a lot more competitive than we're talked about here) and likes the city? He's built his own foundation here. He bought a home here.
