The "circus" excuse is so stupid. Hardly anyone outside of the Carolinas care about the Panthers. And there wouldn't be any "QB controversy" because we know what Cam can do. Mark Sanchez was terrible and deserved to be replaced, but he never was.
Say Cam got a concussion, and was forced to sit out one game. I'd want The Golden Calf of Bristol under center for that one game
people absolutely would care if The Golden Calf of Bristol landed here. it has nothing to do with the size of the market.
there are a fugton of florida fans in the carolinas of whom at least a considerable number worship the ground The Golden Calf of Bristol walks on. he also has a holdover nationwide bandwagon from tebowmania in 2011 that strongly feels that he's a starting caliber NFL quarterback because he "just wins games".
imagine what would have gone down during the first half of last season if he was cam's backup. we did have a healthy contingent here yelling for derek anderson in case you don't remember.
