WHY CAM WILL BE OUT OF FOOTBALL BY 2015

That is really a funny statement. Come back and make another one when you learn something about football. Newton has already set several rookie records and his stats are better than Manning's was or any other rookie qb. The defense is the problem with the team being they have lost their best defensive player and have had 5 linebackers injured this year. Not to mention 2 offensive linemen also. The Panthers will not even look at another qb unless it is a late pick as a back-up. Also, the worst record, like I said make another post when you learn something about football. It is better to keep one's mouth closed and be thought a fool, then to open one's mouth and remove all doubt. It is clear that you just don't like Newton or the Panthers and don't have a clue what you are talking about.

Oh and by the way, in case you didn't know it, McNabb, Young and Vick are still playing. I can see how Cam would follow them, how many years has McNabb been playing, Vick? and Young is still there, also Russell. I see all these guys were out in about 4-5 years. Newton is a better qb than either one of them. He has a strong arm and his accuracy will get better as he gains experience. He is only 21 on a team beat up with injuries and not much of a pre-season. And still he is setting all kinds of rookie records. He has better stats than P Manning did as a rookie.

Dude, please get a clue before posting this garbage. Have you even watched him play? He's a game changer, quit being dumb.

True that. Off the charts potential because he is a QB that runs, not a runner who is a QB. He will rewrite the book on who can be a QB at the JV level and beyond. Dilfer LOVES him. Wait till he has a full off season of pro development.

He'll be too old, and in the Hall of Fame.

Just saw this thread because I haven't been on these boards in awhile. But Cam is built like a tight end and he can take hits. He is NOT Michael Vick, who is a fragile little girl.

After driving from Raleigh to Charlotte and spending $300+ to see the Epic Fail that is the Carolina Panthers and Cam Newton, I now agree this thread. He may not be out of football, but he will be out of a starting job if he continues to make these mistakes. You could make the argument that Cam is REGRESSING throughout the course of this year. When was the last time he threw for 300yards? I think it's pretty clear that NFL Defenses have caught up with Cam and found a way to contain him. By only rushing 4 and dropping 7 into coverage, they force Cam to make NFL-caliber reads, which he cannot do. He continues to make mind-boggling plays, both positive and negative. But until he can harness his raw physical talent and arm strength to go with his (lack of) a mental approach, he will continue to turn the ball over and cost us games.

How many passes did he throw out of bounds down the sideline? Both of his interceptions were HORRIBLE. An underhanded shovel pass with his left hand as he's falling to the ground, and a direct throw into triple coverage over the middle. These are reads that are pretty simple to make-- DONT THROW THE BALL. He continues to struggle with his accuracy as well, missing wide-open receivers atleast 5 or 6 times a game. No one is expecting this kid to be the next Brees, Brady or Rodgers... but if he could just cut back on the turnovers we'd probably be staring 8-8 or 9-7 in the face. Instead, we're sitting at 4-9 with games against New Orleans and Houston. Poor ending to what seemed to be a promising season.

Vince Young, Mark Sanchez, Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan, TIM TEBOW.... just naming a few rookie QB's that that managed to filter out the turnovers by the end of the season. Not all of them had stellar defense's to play with, either.

Compared to the last two seasons, I have a real big smile on my face. Cam can only get better, but the Defense that is another story.Until the Panthers shore up the D-line and linebackers Cam will just have to pad his stats.
