Mix some Cammy Cam juice with that Haterade.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
