First off; Happy Holidays Guys.
Our Buddy, favorite Panthers Lover, I meant Hater, Adam Schein is at it again.
In his NFL.com's weekly "stars" article, he first mentions how he once loudly proclaimed, "Panthers were going nowhere with Cam Newton and Ron Rivera".
Then, after nearly patting himself on the back for that embarrassingly premature prediction, Schein digs deeper, stating at the end of the article:
Some people just can't let go, and admit when they're wrong. Come Back Player Of The Year Schein???
I know we got some Cam doubters and haters in the National media. But I didn't know some could stoop this low.
The last that I remember, Cam was voted one of the top 50 players in the NFL last year by his own peers that he plays against. So how does that make him "on the short list for [his] come back player of the year"?? That means, he would have had to suck miserably, or be MIA. If you wanna say 'he wasn't as good as his Rookie season (and that's debatable); okay/maybe? But CBPOY??......SMH. Come on Schein.
You can't make this stuff up. Here's the link:
Well, in Psychology that is what you call "Belief Perseverance:" Clinging to one's initial concepts even after the basis on which they were formed have been discredited. They were the ones who set out to create a false narrative of Cam and everytime he proves them wrong, they simply find ways of acknowledging his feat, while still pushing the narrative.
Still can't figure out how a QB could have been in a "sophmore slump" when his second season looks slightly better than his first and his third, most successful for his team since 2008, is almost identical to that of the so called "sophmore slump" season. Evenmore was the Panthers won one more game than his first season, with the same really bad defense. How could that be a sophmore slump?
But I do fault many of the Panthers fans because you refused to admit that your team lack of play last season wasn't as much Cam's fault as it was your defense. If the Defense was playing 1/2 as good as they are play now, the Panthers could have at least made the first round of the play-offs. Remember the team went 7-9 last season with a shitty defense and a rookie QB most teams had enough film on by the that season.
Yep!!! it seems many of you enjoyed those in the media obsessive desire to tear down Cam by any means. It helped fuel your own denial over this team's real issues. Some of you still do it even to this day.
