Nice little write up, with this fun little passage:

"If Kuechly resumes the rate of development he showed as a rookie, he will supplant Patrick Willis as the best inside linebacker in footballPosted Image sometime around the second or third quarter of Week 1. Seriously. He’s absolutely sensational in all facets."

They seem to paint a hopeful picture overall, which is nice because they tend to be more intelligent that other sites.

I didn't even notice that.

I agree with mostly everything, but the Cam segment was kind of misleading.

Cam can throw for 4,400+ yards and 26 touchdowns and he'll still be blamed for the team's issues.

I didn't think that segment blamed it on him. What I actually thought they meant is that they put too much on his shoulders.

Perhaps, but the media is committed in placing the Panthers' struggles solely on Cam. This article may not be blaming Newton per se but it still highlights him for Carolina's regression. Nevermind that our secondary and special teams were atrocious in 2012. Of course, it only makes matters worse with Luck, Wilson, RG3 and Kaep taking their teams to the playoffs.

I don't think it's really them against Cam. QB's receive most of the blame/glory regardless.

I don't get how they grade Cam as good and not a star, while calling Andrew Luck and in all likelihood Captian Checkdown Bob Griffin III stars...

Wouldn't the worst secondary title belong to the team with the worst defense in NFL history?.....

It's based on conjecture. I'm willing to bet Cam was a 'star' last year.
