Ahhh it's the Monday after a Panther loss, something Panther fans know all to well. Today has become known as Blame Cam Mondays.

If your like me you probably try to stay away from any sports related show that you can following a loss. You try, but you just can't help being pulled in by the force of curiosity. You turn on the tv and you tune in for Blame Cam Mondays.

It's everywhere even if you try to avoid it you can't escape it. You hear on the way back to your car after the game, "He ain't getting a new contract playing like that," one fan screams. You hear it on the radio, on espn, NFL network, and even your local supermarket.

You asks yourself why? What did Cam do to deserve so much ridicule. Is it because he was drafted #1 overall. Is it because we witnessed the fab 4 provide the NFL with fools gold. Don't get me wrong all of those guys are great but none were placed in the situation that Cam Newton was. Andrew Luck was some might argue but besides the season prior to his arrival that team had been to the playoffs for 9 straight years. The other three relied heavily on a strong run game.

Let's dig deeper. Is it because of the "stolen" laptop at Florida? Maybe it was because his father had been accused of taking money for his son to play. How about him walking in to Auburn after and in the midst of all that and walking out a heisman trophy winner and a national champion?

Is it because many labeled him a bust before he ever took an NFL snap and were proven wrong?

Now lets get to the real question. Why hasn't Ron Rivera stepped up and accepted blame or taken some off of his young quarterback.

Why can't Ron Rivera stand up and say don't attack Cam don't blame Cam we lose as a team and I'm responsible for this team.

On Blame Cam Mondays you never hear any talk about Ron Rivera, Mike Shula or even Chud.

I'm convinced most people don't even know who our head coach is. Do you think Jim Harbaugh would stand by while the media trashed Colin on a regular basis. Pete? Shanahan? I don't think so.

So I ask you huddle why can't Ron Rivera stand up and take some of the bullets being shot at Cam?

He really should do that more often, but babying him will bring even more hate.

You really just have to laugh at anyone saying anything negative about the guy.

What the fug are you talking about? Like, sometimes I wonder if people are only fans of Cam, and not the Panthers. Rivera hasn't blamed Cam not once, hell, he put the blame on Shula.

Never said he blamed Cam. I was a fan long before Cam ever got here. I actually wasn't a fan of Cam's until he joined this team. I never said he blamed Cam. But the reason why Cam gets so much blame is because Rivera never accepts it. The coach should be the face of this team. He's not.

It has nothing to do with the huddle it has to do with the thrashing Cam takes from everyone outside of Panther land and let's be honest our own fan base. Rivera deflects blame and that allows open season on Cam

I wonder if we made the patriots or the 9er's squrim out a win would the conversation be the same.



I honestly don't think half of the huddle understands that we opened against a team that has the potential to represent the NFC in the Superbowl.

Also, I honestly believe half the huddle dosent have pubic hair.
