Happy Panther

Cam Newton contract extension?

Cam has played good enough to be 2-0 people are acting like these losses are all on him

I wouldn't go that far. Cam should have his fair share of the blame.

He does and he doesn't.

 

 

Yep. When is the last time a QB decided to wait a couple of years under a rookie contract instead of signing a better one? It just doesn't happen. Too much chance of injury or production decline.

 

Cam is not going to ride out his contract unless we dictate it.

 

The last elite QB to leave a team was Drew Brees and that was because the Chargers had committed so much to Rivers

Cam Newton is a one of a kind player. We should be lucky if he wants to stay in Carolina. If he was all about himself and winning, he'd probably want to go to an NFC East team like the Eagles. Which he totally will if you play hardball with him!

No one lets a franchise quarterback just walk away. It would set us back years... maybe decades.

Unless Newton starts playing much better football he will not be in a position to dictate anything to anyone. His stats are average to poor and he fails the eye test miserably. Big trades are pretty unusual in the NFL, but I am not sure the Panthers would even get a high first rounder for Newton at this point. I don't think many people outside of Carolina believe Cam Newton is a franchise type QB anymore.

^^^^^ correct..  We already know this from the various articles we've read from around the league.  He ranks last out of the newer QBs in the league.  In most cases he's not even in the same conversation as RGIII, Kaepernic, Wilson etc...

Yeah because the media is always right about players when they evaluate them, lol.

 

I suppose you missed Griffin's first two games, and Kaepernick's recent game against Seattle?

Thankfully we have several more years before we must address the situation.  I love Cam, and I'd love to have him be a career Panther IF he can put Ws in the column.  If he can't, then good luck bud.  I think a coach would love to have him as his QB because he can do it all.  He does somethings better than others, but he can do it all.  Its hard to find that.

 

Sidebar, I mentioned this in another post, but I do hope that Cam is able to find his mythical "swag" again.  Honestly, that needs to be the number one priority.  Wins will help this greatly, but to have a confident Cam who believes he can win...oh to dream!

I think they should wait for his rookie deal to run out. Use that money to get pieces around him. Trade Greg Hardy or let him walk. I think Cam will take less money to stay on a team that will compete for a Super Bowl year to year.

 

uuummmm...
