Do you mean the football people who drafted him in the first round or the football people who benched a decent QB in Orton in favor of him? Maybe you mean the football people for the Steelers who dared him to beat them with his arm. The only football people who have had him on the roster and not used him are the football people on the Jets. I am not sure I would call the Jets or anyone associated with the current clusterf*ck they have going on up there a football person.

No you're right. You, someone who simply posts on a forum sees something that all 32 teams in the nfl didn't see. He cleared waivers because they're all too dense to see he's a winner. Stupid scouts, GM's and owners. You know better. Good on you bro.

If he was brought in, the positives would be that he could run some semblance of the same playbook that we run with Cam. I also think the "media circus" would be a good change for Charlotte. We've never had that kind of coverage before. He wouldn't eat much cap space because the J E T S are paying him.

The negatives are even though he is of high moral fiber, he may prove to be a negative in the locker room due to all the undeserved attention he receives. I also don't know how Cam would like having him here. He may like the fact that he is starting ahead of the guy that he played behind in college or he may hate the attention that The Golden Calf of Bristol gets. The Golden Calf of Bristol would be a solid character/teammate influence on him if he'd allow it.

IF The Golden Calf of Bristol came to Carolina, I'd buy his Jersey. Would you?

The only debate surrounding The Golden Calf of Bristol playing QB in the NFL is among soccer moms and church groups. Football people knew he was an NFL fail and he did not disappoint.

Not quite correct.

Josh McDaniels thought enough of him to use a first round pick. But even if he hadn't, I fell pretty sure someone would eventually have drafted him. Likewise, down the road, the Jets believed enough to trade for him.

It is true that the vast majority of football people have given up on him now, but ya never know. All it takes is one GM with a wild hair and/or a coach with a big enough ego to think "maybe no one else can fix him, but I can."

Won't be us though. Pretty sure Gettleman doesn't get wild hairs.

The Golden Calf of Bristol would be better than Jimmy imo. At least he has the balls to throw it, even if it is wildly inaccurate.

 

Plus he'd bring in more Panthers fans (hopefully?) and he could fit right in with the option stuff...

 

But he'd still be 3rd string.

If he were signed here, I'd cheer for him.

I'd question the decision, and I'd doubt his chances of success, but I'd cheer for him.

Hell to the no!  A media circus like that is never a good thing for a team.  It would cause nothing but distractions in what is already a pretty crucial year for our 3rd-year HC/QB.  Seriously, think about it for a second... say Cam has a string of back-to-back sub-par/bad games or something and then take into account the national perception of Cam already due to the media lynching he took last season (and his college drama if you want to go that far back).

 

A lot of people, outside of people who follow the Panthers pretty closely, don't think too highly of Cam Newton.  Hell, I even know quite a few casual Panthers fans who don't really care much for him.  That primetime showing against the Giants and the "lol Cam sucks, sophomore slump, pouty, immature, bad teammate, wears towel on his head" campaign by the media is still pretty much endeared into the public's perception of him.  You bring in The Golden Calf of Bristol and his "fans" on top of that and you've got a pretty lethal combination.  Teams don't want that kind of unnecessary attention, especially when he's not even a good QB to begin with.

 

I think Carolina is probably one of the worst possible places for The Golden Calf of Bristol to come to just because of Cam Newton.  I love me some Cam, but given his persona/brand, do you really think he would like being the 2nd most popular QB on his own team?  That just has trouble written all over it man.

He just cleared waivers.  Some team might still pick him up.  Even if they do not he was thought of highly by the Broncos at one time and by the Jets when they traded for him.  The NFL brain trust does get it wrong sometimes, especially with quarterbacks.  Kurt Warner is one of the best ever and they whiffed on him.  Tom Brady went in the sixth round.....

some day we're going to have a conversation about a crappy quarterback without somebody bringing up tom brady and kurt warner as if those situations occur with any level of frequency or predictability.

Some things just can't be fixed. He throws like an eight year old kid at a backyard game. Not his arm, his actual mechanics. Can he elude a tackler or two once he's moving? Sure, but that in no way makes him a quarterback.

Warner and Brady didn't get a chance in the league, show the world they weren't nfl qb material, and then suddenly Proved everyone wrong. The Golden Calf of Bristol had his shot and showed everyone he doesn't have what it takes.

Yes, his TEAM won games with him at qb, but the first chance Denver had he was benched. Because he sucks. Jets wouldn't even play him over mark friggin Sanchez. You don't think they played him in practice?? You think he literally sat on the bench every minute of every hour of every day? They didn't like what they saw so much he was third string behind that other nobody qb when Sanchez was benched.

Yet espn hypes him up as some awesome type of human being, America's icon and people can't accept reality because they want him to succeed so bad.

Ugh. Logic, reasoning and common sense are void in this thread, so I have no further place in this discussion.

Can you name another quarter back who won the heisman, was drafted in the first round, won more games than he lost his first season as a starter, won a playoff game as a starter and then never had a chance to start again and was told he is not good enough to play QB in the NFL? 
 
I think that is why this topic stays hot.  If someone would give him a chance then he would either prove that he sucks or he would prove he can get it done and then the issue would go away.


he's already proven that he sucks.
