I don't have a huge problem with it. I've used the exact same analogy countless times reference MJ and the jumper=Cam's passing. And I do feel MJ=Cam, GOAT=GOAT. To whom much is given, much is expected.
My question is will they have the fields heated or no? That was the problem last time they had at at the University of Minnesota. The field wasn't heated and it was frozen so they said the field felt like playing on solid rock.
Our schedule is tough due to opponents, but I was screaming for joy the day our schedule came out and still am.
The Seahawks @1 PM EST the week after the @Rams DL wears them down is fantastic.
Staying home for those four days while the Saints have to travel is fantastic.
Not have to go to Green Bay or Cincy in the bitter cold is fantastic.
Playing @Minnesota makes no difference. We are simply a much better football team, our front 7 can handle Peterson, and their young weapons (Paterson, Rudolph, and vets Jennings and Simpson) will have Cassel or the physically weak rookie Bridgewater throwing to them in the cold in Mike Zimmers new passing offense. We should win that football game on paper. Easily.
The ONLY thing that sucks, IMHO, is opening and closing on the road.
I hope it gets attention, FC. I do think a lot of people dont like Cam because he is prideful. I hear it mentioned often specifically from fair weather football fans, the same ones who never liked Steve Smith.
Remember the Deion Sanders interview?
Deion, "Do you smell the cologne I'm wearing?"
Deion, "It's called confidence. I wear it every day. You got that same scent."
Cam, "It smell good don't it?"
We are so lucky to not only have the GOAT, but a fun personality as well. Embrace the jealousy/hate.
Thanks. I said it yesterday and often that he is (will be) the GOAT. I'm country music and scruffy as well by the way, but I have a set of eyeballs and can look objectively at numbers. I also just got a black Newton jersey for my birthday nearly a decade after thinking I would never wear a jersey again.
My momma didn't raise no dummy, and I routinely speak of Cam as the GOAT, because it's what I believe with all my heart. Simple really. The greatest statistically after three years as a pro, the greatest skillset, and simply a total resume as a 25 year old athlete on par or greater than anyone in the history of team sports.
Charlotte and the Carolinas have the GREATEST OF ALL TIME who hasn't even hit his peak yet in the most popular sport in this country.
The Jell-O located in the supposed brain of these supposed homo sapiens is a cosmic waste of protoplasmic space.
I hope WE are healthy when we play them, which is a long time from now in a football sense. Regardless, I want GTFO my field boy's head on a silver platter, reattach it with dental floss, rinse, repeat. Never, EVER forget GTFO our field. We are 3-0 since then. The enemy deserves NO mercy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Talk to me after these next two preseason games. I don't know what we really have yet.

The GOAT, the best MLB of a generation, a bonafide OROY candidate and future Pro Bowler at WR, and the best front 7 in football. Enough to give us a chance in every game vs a tough schedule despite our weaknesses.
We all remember Cam throwing it into the dirt to a wide open target two years ago, perhaps his mind being on the most maddening loss in franchise history in his hometown of the ATL one week prior.
Here is a reminder of how much we physically dominated them last year, in Star and KK's first game no less http://m.youtube.com...h?v=DBEZvxpXqMg. Not to mention Olsen's drops, DeAngelo's fumble, and Beason (who wasn't even on the team weeks later)'s missed tackle. If that wasn't enough, the miracle prayer throw from Wilson to Baldwin shown in the video says it all, that it was their year.
On October 26, 2014 at 1 PM EST, I want and expect a bloodbath, a massacre, a crime scene, and a W on the scoreboard in a big way. Fug those guys.
So how did KB fall into our laps? I know this was a strong WR class and many teams needed to address the position but none more than us. Ricky worked out tons of prospects and Gettleman seemed to hint that they were always most impressed with his workout. Is it as simple as having an ex NFL receiver knowing what to look for more so than other scouts during workouts? Kelvin had problems with drops in college but it's obvious to those watching that they were primarily concentration related. I guess I'm just asking how was he available at 28? Definitely curious to see where he would have gone next year had he dominated with Winston for another season. Both could have been potentially top 10 picks.
Don't underestimate the strong WR class working huge in our favor, many teams thinking they could nab a quality WR later in the draft. Like you said, no one needed more than us however, and right now, if there was a redraft, and the Panthers had the #1 overall pick, I'd take KB. I think many would agree. Certainly GMan's lightning speed turning in the card spoke volumes.
