Are you fuggn kidding me?
If you're a Panthers fan since the Jake Era, you know he earns one.
I can't believe you just wrote that.
No way dude. As great as Jake was he was an overacheiving talent. Remember, we lost the super bowl. It was our greatest moment of our franchise in one of the best super bowls in NFL history but we still lost. Jake only had a couple of good seasons.
He single handily lost the playoff game in Arizona and pivotal to our collapse in 2009. I love Jake for what he did in his prime but the fact is he doesn't have the numbers or the longevity to earn a statue.
Cam is going to blow Jake away and unless he earns a Superbowl or breaks at least breaks a bunch of records he may not get a statue either. This franchise has only really experienced 3-4 QB's that were worth their name on the back of the jersey, Steve B, Jake D. Matt Moore(barely), and Cam Newton. None of them are HOF material(cam yet to be decided obviously).
Steve Smith is only one that deserves a statue when its all said in done. Consistently the hardest worker on the team, one of the most explosive playmakers to ever play the game, numbers that are approaching HOF status, spent his whole career in CAR. His story is one of the consummate underdog.
