Cam Newton says he “intimidated” Panthers...

 31 other teams were going a different direction as well.  Only NE took him on a "prove it" deal.  He proved that he is probably done.  Not disrespecting Cam, but this makes sense if he left and took a team to the Super Bowl or something like that.  Instead, the team he led did not make the playoffs for the first time in 20 years.  This was not about intimidation--it was business.

I love Cam's fire.  He should respect Rhule and Tepper--it was Ron Rivera who went 4 wheeling for 8 years with a Ferrari. 

I mean is this a joke? He was released well into FA when most teams had already committed to their Qb for the year. Most teams don't wait until the end of May or even June to get their starting Qb. Why do people act like this was a "normal" situation Cam was put into this year? I mean look at the offense he played in Damiere Byrd was his #1 Wr. If the Pat's had a bonafide #1 and a healthy Edleman Cam's stats would look A LOT better. 

Its just funny to me that people use that season to determine if Cam can still be a starting QB in the NFL or not. He had a month to learn his offense and was throwing to a bunch of UDFA ST players And he still won more games than the Carolina Panthers with a MUCH MUCH WEAKER supporting cast. If Cam Newton is done then Matt Rhule doesn't deserve to coach another down of football if he couldn't even win more games than a bum Cam Newton with a month to learn a new system with dogsh*t weapons.

I don't know if it was any "intimidation", but it did seem like Tepper was already set in going a different direction at QB the moment he bought the team.

I think Tepper just wanted to put his stamp on the organization and as long as Cam was the face of the team it wasn't gonna be Tepper's team.

So if he is going to be in demand where do you think he signs?

The deal Cam had to settle for last year made it quite clear what the league thought of him unfortunately.

Around the same time as the Panthers discussion, he says something about the Patriots being the team that "made the most sense" to sign with.

Your opinion is fine, and maybe we should have let him stick with us his final year (if he was even willing to do that) but it will be hard to convince anyone that watched him last season, that he should have received an extension with us.  It was time to move on and I don’t feel bad as a a panther fan that we ultimately made the move. 
 

Signing Teddy is an entire different conversation, but neither Teddy or Cam was going to lead us to be a playoff contender.

Depends. FA hasnt even started yet. I think there's a good chance he's back in NE. They have 60 million in cap and some good draft picks. They can easily upgrade the offense and their front 7 and be back in the mix in the AFC.

Bad wr’s or not he was chucking balls in the dirt at an alarming rate.

True but Tepper clearly wants a franchise QB desperately. I don’t think he viewed Cam as that, definitely not after the injury issues that happened, and his performance when he tried to return.

An alarming rate? You might want to to go buy the All-22 and fact check that. I know thats a common brain dead reply to the season he had and while a few balls did skip he also made some very nice throws.

The Patriots are looking at trading for Mariota or possibly Garoppolo.
