#1800970 Cam Newton Preparing for Encore to Epic Rookie Season

Posted by fieryprophet on 13 June 2012 - 07:54 PM


Cam Newton remembers all of the criticisms.

He couldn't read defenses. He threw off his back foot. He wasn't accurate enough.

The Carolina Panthers second-year quarterback laughs them off these days with a knowing, confident smile.

"If I base my career off things people have said that I couldn't do I would have quit this game a long time ago," Newton told the Associated Press on Wednesday. "You can't listen to what the naysayers say about you because their opinion is just that -- their opinion."

#1798298 NFL.com: Cam's Leadership Crucial to Panthers Development

Posted by fieryprophet on 11 June 2012 - 12:35 PM


He towered above fellow flyers as he waited in the security line at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport on Thursday, rocking a neon yellow Under Armour jacket with a purple hat and a pair of shades.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton cannot hide here, which perhaps is why he doesn't seem to try. The people around him are gawking, mostly in silence, as they wind together like a snake through a maze of nylon ropes. It is slightly awkward -- all of these looks amid the silence -- but only until Newton, traveling by himself, calls out a young, onlooking female loud enough for most of the line to hear.

"How do I look?" he says before throwing his arm around the shorter shoulders of a man who appeared to be a total stranger next to him.
Jeremiah: Where does Cam rank?
Is Cam Newton already among the top 10 QBs? Daniel Jeremiah polled 10 front office executives to find out. More ...

Everyone laughed and everyone smiled, but nobody smiled quite like Newton. This, after all, is his city. This was his security line. And, oh by the way, yes, he did look good.

After just one year as Carolina's quarterback -- although the term "just" doesn't seem so fitting, given all the records that have fallen since he arrived -- Newton has transformed this sports scene into his own. The question, of course, is whether his rise will continue. It is a question, though, that no longer deserves any of our doubts. We can still wonder what remains ahead for Newton, but not in terms of his own ability and potential. Instead, the focus now shifts toward his team's overall success -- whether his Panthers are capable of accomplishing what needs to be done for them to become a top-tier organization in the second year of a major makeover.

#1797501 Great Article, From A Texans Beat Writer, On Cam

Posted by fieryprophet on 10 June 2012 - 11:53 AM


Entering the NFL, Newton had a lot of skeptics attached to him. On top of the character issues that plagued Newton, he also had to battle the dreaded “he came from a spread offense” label that can ruin most NFL careers before they ever take off. He was a running quarterback, and he didn’t take snaps under center; this, to many, meant that he was another bust waiting to happen. To make matters worse, race became a subject attached to Newton before the draft by way of his mentor, Hall of Famer Warren Moon. Carolina looked past all of it and, despite picking Jimmy Clausen the previous season, took Newton first overall.

What followed would silence critics all over.

Cam Newton responded to his critics by pulling off the greatest rookie season of any quarterback ever. Think about that.

Widen your gaze and let that sink in. Cam Newton had a better first season than Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, John Elway, Dan Marino, Johnny Unitas, everyone. He beats out every other rookie season by every other quarterback ever.

#1795977 Griffin vs Newton

Posted by fieryprophet on 08 June 2012 - 10:23 AM

Said it before, will say it again: if the Redskins run Griffin a lot then they are trying to kill him.

He is fast, and that's it. He doesnt have good running vision, is an upright runner with surprisingly poor elusiveness, and often runs into contact rather than away from it.

Let him be a passer only.

#1791312 Just curious. Have some balls & tell the truth. Cam Bandwagoner, Panthers...

Posted by fieryprophet on 03 June 2012 - 02:13 PM

You don't get extra cred for being a Panthers fan before Cam. You think the Colts mattered nationally before Peyton?

We have a franchise QB, and hopefully the Cam fans will become Panthers fans because Cam will be a Panther his whole career and convert them.

I'm a Panthers fan from the beginning but I think it's great to get any fans we can.

#1790810 would you pay chud more than rivera?

Posted by fieryprophet on 02 June 2012 - 05:06 PM

Who picked Chud?

Who picked Cam?

Who got Steve Smith to buy in and stay?

Who sets the tone of the entire team, where excuses aren't tolerated and nothing short of a title is the goal every year?

Who has players showing up early and staying late to voluntary workouts in droves?

Who decided that defying conventional wisdom about a rookie quarterback and how to develop one was the best plan of action, and unleashed the best rookie QB the league has ever seen?

Who was a key cog on one of the greatest championship teams of all time?

Who has had outstanding success and good working relationships in his entire coaching career with the barest of drama?

Ron. Mother. Fugging. Rivera.

If Chud ever leaves Ron will find someone with the same philosophy and we'll keep rolling, because our current scheme is the one he advocated for.
