It will be the Cam Newton Show....

 

Bad matchup for New Orleans ....

 

Also talks about how the crowd will quiet right down when the Saints aren't able to stay on top.

 

He's putting out there in the media a lot of the things we've been saying, sounding like he's actually watched some games and did some studying.

 

I can't wait for Sunday night!!

Yes, that's what Aints fans do, quit supporting their team when they struggle. Hopeless fan base.

One thing you have to understand is Sean is as much a Cam Newton homer as Heath Evans is a Saints homer. Sean had Cam for MVP before the season started and has picked us to make the playoffs the past 2, maybe 3 seasons. He picked Cam for Rookie of the Year before any games were played. Sean absolutely loves Cam. I think he feels a connection to him being a black QB in the NFC South.

 

edit: And he may damn well be right....but there is definitely a bias there.

I was watching NFL show on Showtime tonight and they were showing Taints fans in Seattle. Talk about bandwagon.

The only thing worse than racism is people that want to pretend race doesn't exist. How dare someone suggest two men would share a bond based on shared experiences. Just don't bring up race. That's a nono.

We are the trendy pick right now for the talking heads, we are no longer that team that one guy has to go way out on a limb to pick the Panthers to win.  There are more than just a few "believers" out there in the media.  Screw them though, we've known all along.

Can't really make that call based solely on video. If Carolina played in KC this year I'd probably be accused of being a bandwagon fan even though I've been on board since 95.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
