I think this more motivation than anything.

 

Gettleman is not stupid to think it is all on Cam. If he thought that he would have drafted wide receivers early.

Sounds like he (Gettleman) is talking about the whole team, including his job as GM, to me. Shrugs.

If we don't win, then Rivera will be replaced, not Cam.  If the next coach can't win with Cam, then maybe Gettleman will start looking for a new QB.  Assuming he's still around if that happens, that is.

If you read the full article i think some folks are not getting the context of the conversation. DG said Cam has the best stats of any QB in his 1st two years ever and everyone else is talking about the other young QB's, then DG said Cam has to win more games to get that stink off of him.

 

Paraphrased....

Winning is a team stat....not a QB stat.

Gettlemen loses points on this one with me. You gonna talk about wins and losses as the front office....you don't just put your QB out there in the talk. Not one who has had the team on back making is competitive

 

Couldn't have said it better.  I may have missed the context with which G-Man made the statement, but it appeared as if he was indicating that Cam is solely responsible for the teams Wins & Losses.

 

In basketball, there are only 5 players on the court playing both sides (offense & defense), where one person can actually make a significant difference impacting the game.  In football you have 11 guys only playing one way (either offense or defense or special teams) who can impact the game in various ways.  To place the responsibility of wins and losses solely on the QB is irresponsible and irrational.

 

I hope I misunderstood the context with which he said this and it was an organizational reference and not directed at Cam.

Gettleman was hired in January to replace Marty Hurney, who drafted Newton with the first overall pick in 2011. Newton has thrown for more yards than any quarterback in his first two NFL seasons, but has yet to lead the Panthers to a winning season.

“Cam has had the best two years of any rookie quarterback in NFL history. And everybody talks about the other young (quarterbacks),” Gettleman said Tuesday. “What he's done has been completely lost in the sauce because of the elephant in the room – the 13-19 record.”

Gettleman was asked whether Newton was the quarterback to build around.

After a pregnant, seven-second pause, Gettleman said; “Yes, he is. But now it's time to win.”

Do you have a link to the article? That could clear up quite a bit in this thread.

 

Edit: Nevermind, lol.

At the end of the day, it is all about wins. Listening to the players so far, they understand the sense of urgency. It is going to take all of the plays being accountable about their actions on the field. Stats really don't mean that much if we are not getting the wins. All the greats had to learn that. This is still a team game. We lose as a team and win as a team. Nothing more, nothing less. I think we can all share the same thoughts that we are tired of saying, "wait until next year". The time to win is now. Not the future. That being said, I'm excited about this time this year.
