Raiders admit they were trying to take Cam out

23 December 2012 - 07:21 PM

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly says the Raiders were gunning for Cam Newton after the Panthers took out quarterback Carson Palmer.

Kelly says, “You take our guy out, we’re going to go and try to take your guy out. We’re not out to hurt someone, but when that happens ...”

The Raiders lost the game 17-6, although they did get several shots in on Newton, including one that prompted Carolina’s second-year quarterback to bounce up from the ground and chastise and bump an official for not throwing a flag for a late hit.

Palmer left late in the first quarter when Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy slammed into him from behind as Palmer was setting up to throw. Officials penalized Hardy for leading with his helmet.


Cam's post game parody

It's pretty funny.

Steve and Rivera on Cam

A couple of interesting quotes from the article

“This team doesn’t have leaders,” veteran wide receiver Steve Smith said flatly when asked about Newton’s leadership.

Rivera said quarterbacks must stay a step ahead of defenses. Athletic quarterbacks can succeed, but only those who become proficient passers emerge as the game’s best. Aaron Rodgers evolved, but Michael Vick has never become an elite passer. Whose career arc will Newton’s more closely resemble?

Not long afterward, he returned to the locker room. Someone tapped him on the shoulder and asked if he truly dislikes some parts of his job as much as it appears. He shrugged. “Depends on how you look at it,” he said before looking away.

Rivera said he believes in Newton’s ability to adapt physically but that Newton doesn’t realize how many people are reading into the way he carries himself.

“Being a quarterback is like getting a loan on a car. There’s fine print,” said Smith, the Panthers’ best wide receiver. “. . . There’s a responsibility, which isn’t fair, but it’s there.”

“I know the mistakes I’ve made,” Smith, 33, said, “and so I’m trying to help a guy not go down the same path.”

Smith said it would be easy to allow a young player to simply wallow in his own disappointments and learn the right way on his own. But Smith said that’s not in his personality.
“You can’t allow passive people to be passive,” Smith said.

“At some points and some times in an athlete’s career,” Newton said, “you feel sometimes that you’re in a lose-lose situation. When you pour your heart out and you tell it how it is, then you get condemned.”

Smith said there’s nothing in it for him; he’s nearing the end of his career. But the only team he has played for has plenty at stake.
“I would love to see, when I’m done playing, when I’m sitting on the couch, when I’m an official fan, when I’m watching them with my boys — look at Cam,” Smith said. “Look at that man. Not the football player. The man. That’s what’s important to me.”

Non-Panther Players not liking Cam

23 October 2012 - 06:36 AM

I was watching (Jim) Rome and one of the analysis was saying a lot players including
some Panthers don't like Cam. I'm clueless have say yall read anything regarding this? Did something happen at the Pro Bowl? I remember in the Giant game Cam towel was on the ground and one of the giant players said something to the effect " number 1 come get your towel " and then threw it at him and that was only the third game of the season. Everything was all good last year and I realize that was last year but now everybody acting like wha Rg3 is doing now Cam didn't do last year. In spite of what critics are saying Cam is not having that bad of a year so fans vote for him for the pro bowl. http://www.nfl.com/p...ot_thank_button
