I like this story/quote, and I'm still reading (though I don't like this whole bull with unequivocally marrying wins solely to a QB's performance, and listing Andy Dalton's as one of the QB's they said were better than Cam, just cause they were winning). It's not even true. Matthew Stafford has missed out on the probowl the two years Cam went. And Andy Dalton, was rarely thought of as a better QB than Cam; mostly a game manager with great receivers. Nonetheless, here's the quote:
Two weeks later, the Panthers were playing in their biggest game yet, against the Patriots on “Monday Night Football.” Newton had orchestrated an 11-play drive from the Carolina 17 and had the Panthers in the red zone with 1 minute, 17 seconds left in the game when Bell was flagged for a false start.
Bell went back to the huddle upset with himself for costing the team 5 yards on a must-score drive.
“Most people would get mad or flustered,” Bell said. “He looked at me and smiled and said, ‘Here we go. We’re about to get it.’ He turned around and threw a touchdown to Ted (Ginn Jr.) two plays later.”

Now if Tom Brady or Andrew Luck did that, they'd be calling them legends akin to Babe Ruths alleged call of a home run to a sick little kid in the stands on his next pitch (which many don't believe actually happened that way).
On another note: Where's the articles on how Ron Rivera grew up as coach (in many facets)? And that's probably the main reason why the Panthers have such a good record today. It's Ron Rivera's development, as much, if not more so than Cam's. I guess that's not sexy enough??
