    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.

    Let's not worry about 2015 yet, lets just play this season out first and see where we go from there. Go..... Panthers... Harrelson

    The QB's you name have little in common other than they also have the ability to run and, of course, the color of their skin. We will ignore the latter because I am sure that you are not ignorant.

    Lets look at your list.

    Vick - 9th year.
    McNabb - 13th year.
    Young - 6th year.

    a few of my own.
    Steve Young - 15 years in League. (btw, yes he was also a runner with 4,239 career rushing yds)
    Randell Cunningham - 16 year in League.

    I'm going to throw in something else. Cam is a hard worker who wants to win. You can see it in his face and attitude. I'll take him over any rookie qb in the league. Nothing in those wins has been Cams fault. You Cam haters will be proven wrong.

    For all of the naysayers out there when he was drafted. WRONG. I have been saying before he was even drafted by Carolina that he would do the job. I doubt that any remember this one. The only flaw was his daddy. Money grubber daddy. For any that can write that he has no future in the NFL must be in Jr. High school, sniffing glue, or has not clue at all. Save it when you read the stats, and mature just a wee bit.

    Will somebody get that cup of HATER-AID out of his hands, poor guy. Cam is setting a goal Andrew Luck will never see in his first year.

    Mix some Cammy Cam juice with that Haterade.

    The difference between Cam and Vince is upstairs. It takes a mentally tough athlete to play the QB position. Cam is tough as nails. The progression I have seen from him (mind you, with 0 off-season help) from last year, to the preseason, to now is incredible. He gets it. He will only get better in my mind because he is not a head case like Vince.

    I am not arguing that he is good this year. He is. He is a great athlete. Do you honestly think that he could play as well as he is playing now next year, against defenses like the Ravens, Steelers, or Niners? These defensive coordinators live to slow down kids like him. I understand Panther fans are excited. They should be. Let me ask you this. Whould you want Cam Newton for Andrew Luck for the next 13 years? Who, with the right situation, is going to win more Superbowls? If you say Cam, good luck with that. I don't think Cam will ever win a Superbowl, let alone multiple Superbowls. I'm telling you, just look at the history of the game. He is Vince Young all over again. He had a good rookie year too.

    True that 22. We may need a replacement for Steve Smith and we need defensive help. Our O line is banged up. This kid is the real deal, his desire to stay in the pocket at just about all costs has sold me and he goes through his progressions. He just needs to get more accurate and up to NFL speed but he is most likely rookie of the year. Young came with alot of mental baggage and I laughed when the Raiders took Russell. Newton has proven he was worth the pick on the field, plus the guys love him. He is also 6-" taller than Vick, just a minor point yunno.

    Did you notice the stadium was full? It did not take long for the guys bailing on those PSLs to pull them back and buy tickets. There is alot of excitement around the Panthers. I say he wins a Superbowl before he turns 29, IMHTHO.

    I know very well that we have lots of holes to fill, but saying Cam will be out of football by 2015 is a little ridiculous at the moment. The sky is the limit for that kid. But, I will gladly take another top 5 pick to get another piece of the puzzle filled.

    1-5 Panther fans trip me out with their optimism. Don't worry, you will get another top 5 pick this year to help you improve.

    towel boy, shame on you, it is SO EVIDENT that you HOPE he isn't playing in 2015, ROFLMAO!!!!

  • jayparks0228 Oct 19, 2011

    Not a Panther fan, but why the hate on Cam?

  • wmarti Oct 19, 2011

    The panthers would be 5-1, 4-2 if they had any defence at all. No quarterback in the history of the NFL has done what he has done so far. So I'm going to have to disagree in the extreme.

    Cam Newton has had an excellent start to the season. He is relying on his natural skills to put his team in the best position to win (they're not winning). Anyone who watches Pro Football on a regualr basis knows that it's only a matter of time before NFL defenses catch up with Cam. You could see it Sunday against Atlanta. He got by at Auburn by being a better athlete than everyone else. He won't be able to do that in the NFL for long. I see him having a good year this year. Next year, the rest of the league will catch up and he will probably be out of football in 4 years. Look at the history of the league and QB's like Newton. Vick, McNabb, Vince Young, JAMARCUS RUSSELL (ok he won't be that bad) but without a great coaching staff (sorry Rivera) he won't have a good career. Sorry Panther fans.
