More like, "Will our next 7 games make Cam a bunch of money?"

 

If we win the Lombardi and Cam is the MVP of the SB, then yes, the next 7 games will make Cam a bunch of money.

There are lots of reasons to do it this off season.

1). We lock him up
2). He will improve so his value may be lower than next off season
3). Waiting until next year will give Luck and Wilson an opportunity to balloon the market even more with their extensions due.

This off season we can get the extension done for likely cheaper than next year.

Cam will be the top paid qb regardless when he signs.

Maybe if we win the Super Bowl.

Otherwise that is doubtful. But Luck and Wilson both will have mega deals next off season. Especially Wilson as the Seahawks will likely have the cap.space to inflate the entire QB market.

The cap issues will be the only thing thatmay prevent us from locking him up long term this off season. I think we would rather get it done sooner rather than later.

Cam holds a bunch of cards here when it comes to the amount of Money, the Panthers need to keep him. They have to keep him and he knows that. Everyone knows that, with out him they would have won around 7 games the last three seasons.

 

They can give him the 5th year option and tag him twice over the 2015-2017 seasons which would pay him around 51 million and all of it would be guaranteed. Any contract he gets is going to be above the 17 million average that he can get from that. 

 

Also on Cam's side is that he's one of the most prolific QB's in NFL history over his first 3 seasons stat wise. Were talking a QB that's got 12663 total yards and 88 total touchdowns in 45 games played. He's going to get paid and his contract is going to be massive, he's going to be a top 5 QB pay wise. 

 

 

That puts his contract in the range of around 100 million dollars over 5-6 seasons with around 35-40 million guaranteed.

Random thought. There's been a lot of Cam doubters the past couple years due to The Panthers not winning. I (and others) have basically given him a free pass believing he didn't have the talent around him to win. Obviously the team has shown over the past month that they can win. I think these last three games is Cam's opportunity to show that he can be the leader and franchise QB the team needs to get to that next level. Can he rally the troops and close out the season strong? I believe he can and will. However, my question is this... If the team drops some bad games, loses winnable games, or doesn't put them in a position to be successful in the playoffs, does this impact Cam's next contract? Is the blame placed on him? Or is Cam already set as our future QB regardless of the end to this season. Here's to a 3-0 finish and a playoff run, but just wanted to get some thoughts.

If you're still doubting Cam as a franchise QB then you have something wrong with you medulla oblongata. If Cam is not a franchise QB then list us you think are then we might be able to have a better response to your crappy thread.

Plus, it's not only how much you're willing to give a guy like Cam because you're also competing with teams who might want to up the ante.

Cam knows what losing feels like....ie the first two seasons with us....he wants to win....He won't take a huge contract.  He had plenty of money coming in from other avenues...he'll take around 12-15 mil so we can bring in other players to make him better.  He's young and despite W-L record, he's done really well.  Think if any other QB had this OL.....Cam has done a lot with what he has to this point.  things are starting to turn and Cam does not want to spur that growth.  KEEP POUNDING!!!!!!

 

 

I just love how people want to see Cam get a record setting contract, yet they want the team to spend big money to put more weapons around him.

 

Something has to give.

They didn't put more weapons around him when he was getting paid only 5mil. I think Cam is following the NFL even more than us and he sees what talents other teams have that the panthers straight up ignore and while relying mostly on him. You think if Cam had the opportunity to go to a team like the Texans with 2 top WR, great RB, a very good OL and good defense he wouldn't bolt next year. You also have the Titans with a good group of WR and a great OL, Cleveland with Gordon, the Vikings with AP, Patterson and Jennings. You get the point.

 

You guys need to realize that the Panthers are one of the most limited team talent-wise. You ever wonder why the media never take us seriously even on our winning streak. We're an over-performing ragtag bunch. We need to stop fooling ourselves. The OL is not there, the RBs are hit or miss(and cost us a bunch), the WRs are abysmal, the secondary is, well, secondary. The only bright spot on this team is the Front 7 and Cam(who leads this team in rushing against every good team we play). In fact, we're mirror image to the Jets. Only difference is we have Cam and they don't.  We better lock Cam in before he gets big eyed and someone else does offer him. You guys act like you have some great team that can beat anybody without Cam. Lmao

 

Plus, with our salary cap issues we have barely any talents to show for it. The Jets doesn't have much talent other than their front 7 but they're like 40 mil below the cap.

Cam doesn't need to win the Superbowl to be the highest paid qb.

I believe his unique skill set is what will make him the highest paid qb, whether he gets extended now, or two years from now. He's already proven to be a very good qb that has grown as a player, and his potential is still higher than any qb in the league.

You will have to pay if ya want it.

I believe the Panthers will pay....but it won't be in 2014.

When Cam gets his record breaking contract.........    I wonder if fans will complain about him "screwing the team" and "leaving them with little money to get talent around him".              Despite the fact that he was making pennies compared to most of the other qbs,  over the last three years,  and all we've really given him was f'n Ginn and Olsen.     Olsen is good... but, a good TE in an aging or talentless offense,  doesn't really elevate the offense.

I'm sorry. Was that English? No one ever said anything about doubting Cam. I was just discussing money.
