  1. Panthers vs Bucs... in London!

    The Cam vs Allen debate has so many more facets than "Cam a better player doe". It's nowhere near the simple. There's SO MANY factors. We could save 19m by cutting/trading Cam next year. If Rivera is fired, Cam is almost certainly gone. We're not saddling the next HC with a QB who hasn't been able to stay healthy. Allen is legitimately a better fit for Norv's offense. Not a knock on Cam, it's just real. I think the most telling thing is over this four game stretch, we've busted a LOT of long-held narratives; "Cam is the whole offense! We'd be terrible without him!" - The offense has (relatively) flourished under Allen, sustaining drives and being more consistent overall. "We got no wide receivers!" - Allen has the receiver corps playing well, hitting guys in stride with timing and accuracy. "The defense sucks! They cost us the first two games!" - The defense has played elite football since Allen took over. Not a coincidence. Allen taking over coincided with us winning the TOP battle nearly every week. With Cam, we lost it both times by 7+ minutes. "Any other QB would DIE behind this offensive line! They'd be injured game one!" - Allen has played four games, taken a fair few shots and been totally fine. So. Many. Dispelled. Narratives.
  2. Reflecting on it, it reminds me so much of post-surgery Delhomme. Cam still wants to win, he's still trying, but the arm/shoulder just isn't capable anymore. Heartbreaking. I wouldn't be shocked if he retired midseason. I'd support him. Save your body, dude. Teams are just going to run blitz us every week until we show taking McCaffrey away doesn't eliminate our offense.
  3. I think Cam's body is just cooked. He's breaking down and it's sad as hell to watch. That arm is just fading every game. By halftime it's gassed. I sincerely hope he walks away like Luck did if for no other reason than his health.
  4. Week 1 GDT

    Without McCaffrey our offense would just be straight up offensive. He's our entire offense tbh.

    So, thanks for pointing that out, I missed four picks somehow rofl. That's a big oof. Fixed that, moved a few picks around.

  11. Cam Newton to sit out 2019?

    There's a few reasons I don't think this is happening; 1. In 2017 in the offseason, Cam underwent a debridement of the rotator cuff. It's fair to assume he re-injured the rotator, which never fully returns strength/function. I doubt resting solves this. 2. Cam will be 30 heading into 2019, and only signed through 2020. If Rivera/Hurney are fired after 2019, I find it hard to believe Cam isn't gone with them. 3. There's no way you can extend Newton after a year away from football with no knowledge of what he'll look like on the field. Cam went 16+ games after the debridement and looked fine. He re-injured the shoulder against Pittsburgh most likely, but the following game against Detroit was arguably the best of the season. 4. His throwing motion is problematic. He creates all his torque with his upper body, putting stress and pressure on an already injured shoulder. When we sent him to a QB camp pre-2015, he shined, and then regressed in 2016, much as Wentz did from 17-18. I'm not entirely sure either QB is fixable as far as their mechanical flaws.
  12. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    Think it's time to run that double reverse pass from the 3rd TE to Foles.
  13. 4 Round mock: Team by team

    Honestly this is brutally awful for Carolina. A draft where we need to rebuild the defense and we come away with....an OT, a WR, a CB and a QB? What on earth? In such a strong class, I fully expect us to take at least two defensive linemen. Zero chance we invest a top-3 round pick in a WR. We've spent four top-2 round picks in the last five years there. QB is plausible but I feel pretty confident we wait until next year. See how Cam's shoulder is and make our choice then.
  14. Nick's Mock Draft - 2 Rounds w/ Write-ups

    I'd say less than zero chance the Panthers come out of the first two rounds without a pass rusher. Burns makes sense at 16.
  15. 2019 Offseason/Draft

    I really like the mid-round QBs this year, particularly Thorson. Wouldn't mind snagging one in the 2nd-3rd. Cam's shoulder is a huge question mark. Better to have a plan than not.
