Would you trade Cam Newton for Cleveland's 2 Number 1 picks?

I'd like to see Cam with a competent coaching staff. If we hire one and he's still struggling I'll help pack his bags.

Throw in a drunk Bernie Kosar and we will think about it.

He has to be the mascot

Why don't you guys go after Johnny Football? He seems like he would fit in with what Chud likes to do.

send those two firsts over.  We've got a guy waiting in the wings that's better than cam.  His name is Armanti Edwards, maybe you've heard of him.

i would need at least 5 first rounds for cam.

 

this isn't a matter of cam being worth 5 first rounders, it's a matter of that's what we would need to improve with a new qb. if you think a rookie qb (bridgewater, for example, as he is a stud and best qb in the class) could come in and ball out with our supporting cast you are out of your mind.

 

point is no QB outside of the big 3 (brady, manning, rodgers) would be successful in our offense. that is a result of our lack of talent and terrible scheme.

Honestly, NO. Never. The Panthers self-destructing has nothing to do with Newton. He's a once-in-a-generational talent. He needs weapons, protection and a competent coaching staff.

Nope, Cam isn't the problem... in fact he's one of the few players worth keeping.

I would consider it greatly, especially, if the Browns end up top 10 pick

If that was a serious offer the Panthers would consider it. With their own pick likely being top 5 it would be huge for a rebuilding effort.

Let's be real, rebuilding is not this team's issue. I gues it will take some of u a few more pathetic seasons to realize that QBs are not hired to be work horses.

He's not a one-in-a-generational talent.  Peyton Manning fits that description.  He's a perennial winner.  Went to the playoffs in his second year despite a questionable coaching staff.  You can blame Rivera for his conservative play calling all you want but he's not the one out on the field with the ball in his hands with the game on the line.  A once-in-a-generation QB would win despite crappy coaching.  Hell, look who Peyton Manning's head coach coach is now...

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
