His comment about the franchise and them having to pay isn't about the Panthers per se. He's saying that people doubted him. He proved them (the NFL, the Media) that they were wrong. All those teams that passed on him. The media saying he wasn't a franchise player. Now, he's being tagged which proves he's elite. He won. He's officially made it. Look, Mom, I did it. That's all he's saying.
I was impressed with his interview. There's a lot more intelligence there then the insanity of the Kracken. I really liked the "Cam is better than sliced bread" and the comment about he was glad he was drafted late. If he'd had gotten all the money right away he'd have blown it all and maybe not be the person he became. Very impressed. Seems like a guy with the ability and desire to keep getting better.
A notch below Peppers as far as being a pure athlete but 10x the desire. Hope we get a long deal done.
The future is Cam, Luck, the Kracken and Star. A stud LT and a #1 WR for the future and you've got the center of the Panthers for the next 6-7 years.
What about Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuukkkkkkkkkkkeeeeeeeeeeee?
