Since Charlotte will never have a MLB team I don't have a problem with it.
I do. Nearly 15 million people in two states and approximately 7 million within a 100 mile radius of CLT. CLT is the 16th biggest city and 23rd biggest metro with an economy, weather and baseball culture far superior to a majority of current MLB cities. CLT is nearly double the size the ATL was when they got the Braves in the 60s. MLB in CLT is far less absurd than the NBA, NFL, or NHL were when they came, and CLT is still one of the fastest growing cities. Baseball may not be what it once was, but to settle for less than the best and/or pull for the ENEMY that is the ATL (while unfortunately common) is misguided and sick.
I think Cam is going to grow A LOT as a QB the next two seasons. His first offseason the was a lockout and he literally only had a play book to study, the second he went back to school, and the third he was off the field with his ankle. this offseason and next he will be progressing.
And still only had one year of big time college football, in a spread system at that. So, so scary for the other 31.
No disrespect man but...lmao. Come on. MJ is an undisputed worldwide icon and undisputed best to ever play his sport and is worth billions. I'm sorry but there's just no way. Are you a Panthers fan or a Cam fan? Serious question.
Panthers fan, season ticket holder since day 1. I even straddled the fence on drafting Cam. I was optimistic and hopeful, I saw the greatest single season in college football history but I thought it was a small sample size for the #1 overall pick and he would be coming to a terrible team that didn't have a first round pick the year prior, and took a QB with their 2nd round picks in both 2010 and 2011 (Clausen and Armanti). I was immediately told by reliable sources he was nothing but pure gold during a kid's event at Ardrey Kell High School during the lockout and my hope and fandom became stronger. Since then, nearly everything he's said and done for a young man of his age and talent has been GOAT worthy. The best is yet to come.
Yes. I said in the history of football after the Cardinals game last year. It could probably even be found with effort that I don't feel like using at the moment. He was 24 at the time and is now 25 with back to back division titles after whitewashing his health, WR corps, and protection. Most QBs that play 4 years of college football peak from age 28-31. Our man is going to take over this league in the next 5 years.
They are neighbors and quite frankly there could be no better analogy. I've said it dozens if not hundreds of times, our head coach said it comparing Cam's passing to MJ's jumper, and now others are saying it. I also believe Cam knows it too although only he knows that. Football is clearly more of a team game and the playing field and structure for 32 teams and 53 man rosters are clearly more even than the 1990s NBA, and I'm also not saying he'll have to wait 7 years to win his first and will win 6 and play baseball two years in between, but other clear similarities to include overcoming doubters/obstacles (Pistons/Seahawks), multiple rings, jaw dropping talent, advertiser's wet dream, overall GOAT....absofreakinlutely.
Luck's rating last night was a 23, and he also had 4 rushes for 18 yards. Cam's worst EVER was a 39.4 here against the Saints this year, with injuries galore and French Canadian rookie at LT that didn't even play American football until this year. And he still had 7 rushes for 43 and a TD.
