1. You are afraid to admit you were wrong: Hey. Come on man. It doesn’t hurt that bad. I wanted Dareus myself, thought Cam was too much of a risk. I was even a little pouty about right after the draft. For like 10 seconds as I was in Costa Rica and that place is awesome.
Get over it and enjoy the magic.
2. You cannot accept a black QB: “First they took over the skill positions and the defensive backfield. Then they took over the defensive front seven. YOU CANNOT TAKE THIS FROM ME, DARKIES! LEAVE ME THIS AND THE O-LINE!“
Though no one will ever publically admit to this being the case, you’ll notice that the only QB’s they seem to like all seem to be awfully pale. Oh and somehow a 6 ft 5 Pocket QB who has an insane work ethic is always compared to either Mike Vick or Jamarcus Russell.
We go from one of the worst offenses in modern history to top 5 in one season and all anyone wants to do is bitch about the coaching staff and FO for not accounting for 3 defensive starters going down in the beginning of the year.

Things ramped up on Carolina’s second drive, after two DeAngelo Williams runs and a timeout. On third-and-7 from his own 23, Newton lined up in shotgun with a three-wide set and Shockey in the right flex. Arizona played nickel to counter, but a blitz put Smith one-one-one outside with safety Kerry Rhodes, and Smith just fired past Rhodes on a sideline go. Newton’s offensive line (especially tackle Jordan Gross) worked quickly to the left to pick up the blitz, and cornerback Patrick Peterson’s delayed blitz off that edge took him out of zone look potential -- not a good thing when you’re leaving your free safety alone and deep with Smith. If you don’t get home on a blitz like that ... well, let’s just say that the biggest challenge Arizona’s defense put up on that play was when Adrian Wilson tried to play “keep-away” with the ball in the end zone when Smith was trying to celebrate.
