    I want Cam instead of luck. Big strong fast and has a touch on the ball. Luck will have a career that mirrors Carson Palmer and that is a good career.

    I was listening to Dilfer talking about Cam the other day on Colin Cowherd, and man, Dilfer loves him. Says he was born to throw a football and is redefining the QB position at a basic level (7th&8th grade). Said in the Washington game he made about 6 throws that only Brees/Rogers types can make. In the future Dilfer thinks the bigger guys who get put at wideout or tightend or LB may now be looked at as a QB because of Cam. I'm on the CAMWAGON!

    Here is the upside too, how many great players out there who are young and looking to get to a future condender, will now look at the Panthers in free agency, hooking up to the CAMWAGON.

    So how many professional football games have you started on let alone played in. have you coached anything but your mouth! I bet you you are a continued failure withthe ladies also.

    While I disagree with the OP, he failed to mention the best argument to support his case: Daunte Culpepper.

    Pro-bowler his first year as starter, two more pro bowls in the next 4 years, then got hurt and sucked it up for the next five years fading out of the league. QBs who rely on their athleticism often don't develop the other skills necessary to succeed in the league, and so once they get hurt and their athleticism doesn't come back to 100%, then can't make the same plays.

    DukeBLue you are nothing more than a HATER! i dont' think Cam's arm strength, physical strength, or running ability will deteriorate any time soon. And as for your argument about Defense's learning how to play Cam, how about Cam learning how to read defenses? This kid has been nothing but great in the locker room, film study, etc. He will be a top-5 NFL QB within 2 years.

    Right Bev, go Panthers. My worries about Cam, and I blogged with another guy about this before the draft, was not anything other than guys who are very athletic and talented, be they black or white (Tebow & Newton) are allowed to win games the way they did in High School, with their raw ability, and the college coaches don't want to upset the apple cart to fix fundamental flaws. I remember pre-draft talk about Tyrod Taylor, and how he had to change delivery and his approach to be a passing QB. Beamer is a phenomenal coach but even he can't spend 2 of a kids 4 years trying to change a style that may not be able to be changed or may have detrimental results or render the player less productive than they were with the old habits. It gets back to short term sacrifice of wins to the long term development of the player, which I don't think any college coach has the luxury of doing.

    Cam's ability to adjust to the pro game, and the reads, has many experts who were questioning him coming back and saying he is making reads and some types of throws that only Brees/Rogers/Manning can make right now, and he is a ROOKIE. After seeing Otah go down again, a 1st round pick, it's great to see Marty Hearney and company (Ron Rivera) hit a walk off grand slam home run that Jerry and the Panthers desperately needed. I was working in Charlotte pre-draft and was there the day Luck decided to not come out and it was like someone dropped a boo-bomb on the Panthers. PSLs being sold for nothing, people falling into toilets, mass hysteria. I don't know how much of a impact Ron Rivera made in draft selection but Herney's track record has not been good, but this one, with Rivera's help, has saved his job IMHTHO.

    Well it is hard for me to say I am with cuss and lsmtih on this one, but as cuss so accurately pointed out to me last weekend, we may pull for opposite college teams but on Sundays we are pulling for the same team. I was not wanting Cam as well because of his dad baggage, but now I am convinced.

    GO PANTHERS!!

    I'm with you Cuss. I was not in the Cam camp at first as I wanted to see if he was the real thing. Well, he is. The Panthers got a steal with him. He is so far and away better than Vince Young it's scary. He is smart, learns fast, reads defenses very well, can throw the ball like no tomorrow, and run when needed. Steve Smith loves him and that is a huge compliment as Steve is slow to praise. Newton may end up making Luck look like a amateur as Luck is unproven in the NFL, and Cam is. Excellent win today. I love the play calling and the D showed up. Panthers have some holes and need some depth but the stadium was packed and Cam puts em in the seats. Everyone I know is talking about the Panthers.

    Cam. Luck still has to make it to the league. You can still wish though.
