Sigh, it didnt have to be done.  We pumped up his stats and then paid him for it.  It makes no sense.  Let him play 2020 out with the new regime and then see what you have

Did you even watch him play?  Our team sucked ass but he did something only 2 other players ever did.  He’s an amazing RB.

And if our team was worth a damn he would’ve been used properly and not force fed. Some of you are clearly bigger fans of CMC than you are the Panthers as a whole. 

This organization has chosen to ignore the current day model of how a championship caliber team is built. 

This won’t end well.

They force fed him the ball at the expense of winning.

That's not even a realistic argument to make. You can make plenty of arguments about positional value, wear, impact on wins, etc, etc. 

You can't make a real argument that he isn't one of the NFL's best players.

At the expense of winning is not a fair statement. Throwing the ball had gotten to the point where it was a definite path to losing. What other options did we really have?

Depends on how you define best players,  there are at least 20 guys above him easily.  Probably closer to 30 or more.  Running back do not move the needle any more.

Because Kyle Allen throwing the ball down the field was a better option?

This is great news, not sure why many of you are upset that we just re-signed one of the top-10 players in the NFL

We are upset because he probably won't be a top 10 player for the latter part of that contract. It would have been a smarter move to 5th year option him and then franchise tag him the year after. Would have been wayyy cheaper and he is going to decline after that 6th year due to usage, age, and possibly injury. You basically paid him in a way where your assuming hes going to have this production for the next 6 years which is highly unlikely. 

He did deserve a pay raise tho. This probably wasn't the best way to give it to him as it will hurt the team greatly in building a long term winning team. Its like giving old Greg Olsen or old Steve smith a contract extension paying them 10mil into their mid 30s which is not a smart move. We eat alot of dead cap because of feel good moves like that. I will say CMC is still super young but the way we are using him it will age/damage his body twice as fast.

Want to see what the deal is as far as guaranteed cash but I really like this

cmc is our best player and this sends a clear sign to all players that if you perform you will be rewarded and be a part of our team

$16m a yr may be a bit rich, but this was a great move

he is the face of our franchise now

We don’t have a lot of choices right now man.  Personally I wouldn’t kept Cam, waited to sign CMC until next year, and drafted heavily in defense after the offseason purge/offensive signings we had.  But after the moves we’ve made so far, signing CMC was good.  What I don’t agree with is signing Teddy to a lucrative deal, then having most of our WR be deep threats.  That was dumb.  But we are where are, and CMC is gonna be teddy’s best friend.
