Why are there so many threads on Cam and the offense when our Defense is playing so bad?

28 September 2014 - 04:55 PM

I don't get it. Our defense is playing as bad as it has played in about two years for two straight games yet people can't stop talking about benching Cam. News flash but we won't be winning many games even if we could keep Cam up right if the defense keeps being teared apart like a tissue. 

Surgeon describes how Cam Newton's injury affects athletes

01 September 2014 - 12:18 AM






"I imagine in that first game, he'll have some issues to deal with," said Dr. James Fleischli.

Fleischli is an orthopedic surgeon and while he isn't treating Cam's injury, he's dealt with plenty of athletes suffering from the same thing in the past.

"It hurts a lot," Fleischli said. "Pain is the main thing that you're fighting, but they heal on their own."

Fleischli says in the first week, just basic things like coughing, sneezing, even taking a deep breath are going to hurt. On the field, he'll feel sharp pain when he bends over to take a snap, when he drops back and when he twists to make a throw.

That's probably why he's sitting out Thursday night's preseason finale against the Steelers, but in 10 days in Tampa it's almost a guarantee that he won't be pain-free, which could impact his performance.

"It may affect his throwing motion in terms of pain, particularly with longer passes," Fleischli said.


Sorry if this is a repost. I saw this and thought it was a good insight on Cam's injury. 


The good news seems to be that this injury will heal on it's own but the bad news is that it will take time before it does and Cam's throwing motion may be affected by this injury. Hopefully Cam can work through the injury on gameday though. 


Cam not worried about his next contract.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says he is not "terrified'' that the contract San Francisco 49ers counterpart Colin Kaepernick received will impact his next one.

"I'm not terrified of anything,'' Newton said Wednesday.


Kaepernick signed a six-year deal worth $110 million earlier this month with the 49ers. The contract reportedly included a record $61 million in injury guarantees.The Panthers have the rights to Newton through the 2015 season, but they've expressed an interest in signing their franchise quarterback to a long-term deal. Negotiations have not begun.

On Tuesday, the NFL Network reported that people close to Newton are terrified that Kaepernick's deal might set a standard for the Panthers to use in their dealings with the QB. Specifically, the report said Newton would want much more than the $13 million in guaranteed money Kaepernick received up front.

"For me, that's the last thing on my mind,'' Newton said. "The first thing is trying to get little anky right. I'm not worried about no money. I'm not worried about things I can't control.''

Newton underwent surgery to tighten the ligaments in his left ankle in March. He was expected to be out until training camp, but he hasn't ruled out participating in next week's mandatory minicamp.





I thought I should post this since the other thread about Cam's next deal is pure speculation by some reporter.
