you're kidding yourself into thinking I said that. physically gifted sure but that isn't what carried this team. He was physically gifted last year and the year before but we had no D. What has changed? it was a team effort in general but there is no way you cannot give the credit to the D as the major contributor to the improvement this year. They carried this team above anyone else.
Yes i agree the defense has a big part into us going 12-4. Your right in your thinking of that. But that doesn't change the way he has developed into making less mistakes and throwing less ints while also still remaining effective as a the biggest threat we have on offense. You can't just take cam out of the equation like your doing,NO other QB is asked to do as much for his team as Cam Newton. Thats what makes him one of a kind. Take payton manning away from the broncos still a good team. take russell from the seahawks still a good team and so on. Take cam from our offense the rushing goes down the 3rd down conversions go down. The total touchdowns period would drop off greatly. As Gettleman and so many others have said as Cam Newton goes so goes the panthers. This kid was in MVP conversations at the midway point up until the end of the season. You can't just say he has nothing to do with it.
