People complain about how the Pats somehow have a very good team year in and year out. Meanwhile, one NFL team threw Cam out like trash and 31 other teams had a chance to sign him for practically nothing. Belichick looked at his trash QB room and said, "Hmmm... don't mind if I do."

Dude probably laughed his ass off. He robbed the NFL and didn't even need a gun.

Half his team opted out this year before realizing they had a play at Cam Newton. Must suck to be a Pats fan rn

Also fug Ron Rivera for literally trying to sacrifice Cam and his career to save his own ass. 

This right here is the real truth.

Can players opt back in if they opted out of the season? The Pats will win it if that happens. Right now they’re just a playoff team

I haven't transferred my hate to Teddy. He honestly seems like a good dude. I know my posting about Teddy's career makes me seem like I hate the dude, but I don't. He is what he is - a marginal starter/good backup type of QB. But you're right, in no way shape or form should a rebuilding team be sinking huge cap space into a stopgap placeholder QB. You had Cam under contract. Let it ride for a year. You can sign Teddy Bridgewater level QBs in any given off-season.

Teddy gets undeserved hate but people need to realize that he's a tank commander and will never be nothing more than that *cough cough*Jeremy Igo

There's certain Fandom that sucks to be associated with unfortunately

I love Cam and wish he was still here with every fiber of my being. But I still got no love for Teddy B. I obviously hope he does well because he is my teams QB. Maybe if he was on a $5MM/year prove it deal I’d feel differently. But letting Cam go to pickup Teddy for $20MM makes me hate TB even if that’s not TB’s fault. I know it’s not logical and I don’t care. I’m clamoring for whatever QB we can draft that is a real future franchise QB. Bridgewater feels like an off-year quarterback to me like Rodney Peete or Testeverde. A guy you have until the real future shows up. 

The closest pro comparison I can think of is Chad Pennington, he has about the same arm strength and is very accurate he just doesn't have the gusto.... Athletically he's Ryan Fitzpatrick (who has the gusto just not the arm).

As long as Cam stays healthy they'll be a playoff team. "Just" a playoff team sucks for a Pats fan, but that along would qualify it as a top 10 Panthers season. We've only made the playoffs 8 times. Cam was our QB for half of them, yet so many of our "fans" hate him. Sad.

This has been my biggest thing. They know they don’t like Teddy and want Trevor. They should just be real. I hate the fake sh*t. I love the panthers and will root for them, but I’m going to call out the fake I see. Again, around week 10/11, they’ll be talking about Teddy’s accuracy too

you're right and it makes me angry.  I'm all in for Teddy and I hope he somehow improves and his game opens up.  I don't expect it, but I really don't want this team to be so bad we're drafting #1. Not this year, when so many other teams are going to be total shitshows too...

good thing is at least we can probably land Fields in the top 5.  Of course, that won't satisfy  some of the "lose for Lawrence at all costs" crew for a reason I just can't put my finger on

Oh, and a lot of the Carolinas rooting for Cam too. I know that hurts the top brass here and the panthers front office. My timeline is full of people rooting for Cam, and they’re in Greensboro and my hometown of Winston.
 

All of this, “the panthers fan support is growing” is false.

Thats the thing.  I feel the exact same way, except I liked Teddy in college, but in a "he's solid, I hope he continues to do well," kind of way.  But, my fandom for Cam was much more invested, because I felt a kinship with him for overcoming past mistakes off the field, and proving people wrong.  I sulked when I lost games too and wore my emotions on my sleeve, so we had that too...  and then there is the fact that he is built like fuging Optimus Prime and was the absolute, video game-like prototype guy you would want to have in a QB both in size and ability.  So, it was like creating a 99 ovr player on Madden and just watching them dominate like no one we had ever seen before.  It was FUN.

So, again, it is not Teddy's fault, and I still think he is a good dude, but we literally kicked out a former MVP and the face of the franchise at 31 years old, when many QBs are playing up to 40 now...  all so we could pay a guy who can't grip a football to throw without wearing gloves, and even then he doesn't throw well, 24M dollars...  all while we had Optimus Prime already here, who was willing to play for less.  You couldn't fug this up worse in a nightmare, but here we are.

It's funny hearing people from the Anti-Cam camp say they wouldn't give Cam 20mil but were ready to give Kyle Allen that amount after a couple games. Weird.

Who the heck said that the dude was pennies for the next two seasons....

My problem is we had some ideal tank commanders already on the roster at virtually no cap hit. I know Teddy is here because he knows Brady's offense but one thing these college dudes have to understand is that unless you're a Belichick level coach, elite talent can never be passed up for a guy who "knows your system". If you can't coach elite talent to your system, then you can't coach. That's what coaches do. This isn't college. There are no SW Arkansas State A&Ms on the schedule.
