    Chargers not wanting to pursue him doesnít make much sense even if they do plan to draft a QB, but I guess that organization doesnít seem to know what itís doing in general

    I don't know. The concern with Cam is not that he isn't a great physical specimen. I mean you can watch the video and see he's ripped. But if I'm a GM, I wouldn't consider paying him starter money until I see a video of him throwing it with his old velocity. And if you're LAC and saying you're building for the future, and you don't know if he can zing it, and you like both Tua and Herbert, then it's not unreasonable to go with Tyrod and bring your rookie along when he's ready. Tyrod is decent, and they probably should have started him instead of Rivers by the end of the season because Rivers sucked.

    I don't think there's that much of a choice.

    Possible FA signings for Panthers
    https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sp...241734986.html

    Cap room is tight. I think Teddy Bridgewater signed his own death warrant joining the Panthers and this terrible OL.

    The Bucs and Falcons got new uniforms. Seems like a good time for the Panthers to get new unis after blowing up the franchise. Make a clean break.

    Maybe Lawrence can show off the new unis when going up on stage to shake Goodell's hand

    Agree. The "flying" helmet logo reeks of 90's. I know, supposedly it is in the shape of NC/SC. The unis can change but still need to be classic.

    Nah I like the unis and colors since they made the change a few years ago. Favoring the blue is better than when the black and silver were more prominent

    Anyone else take this as a very negative endorsement of Cam? You make a career/franchise decision to cut your former MVP QB, and all you have to say are these broad generalities?

    "We went ahead and made that call, not an easy call, but one we thought was the best one moving forward.''

    "I don't want to make it too much about Cam in a negative way, because I have so much respect for him and the player that he is and the player that he will definitely continue to be"

    "Cam Newton is a great quarterback and can play in any system,"

    "I'd say, obviously, I don't know if that's our focus right now, a first-round quarterback," he said. "But at the end of the day, if a guy drops in your lap that you think -- at any position -- you think can change your team ... don't let need overtake what's the best thing long term."


    I know it's a lot of coach speak, but man, Cam and Luke have been the absolute life blood of the Panthers for the last decade.

    We've discussed Tepper's methods with the staff, and cold blooded as it may be, it's what Hurney needs... but the head coach of an NFL team these days needs to be both coach and press secretary.

    Teddy is a more accurate thrower than Cam, and at this time, has fewer health questions.

    The Panthers couldn't pass on Bridgewater waiting to see how healthy Cam is, especially when Teddy is the more accurate option. They couldn't risk Cam returning with a new throwing motion, like he had last year, that just wasn't getting the job done. Even healthy, Cam is not the most consistently accurate thrower. That has been bemoaned on these boards many times. I'm thinking our new offense needs someone who throws a good deep ball.

    I have same affection for Cam as y'all. He won me over with hard work during the CBA lockout and came in dazzling the league. But sentiment means nothing, and there is a long history of iconic QB's who finished their careers on other teams.

    So yeah, Rhule has to walk the fine line of not throwing Cam under the bus while also moving on.

    I laughed for like 5 straight minutes at this.

    So Iím watching the Sugar Bowl between Baylor and Georgia because thereís nothing else on and I havenít seen it. Not blown away with Baylor in this game having watched them a few times earlier in the year against Big 12 defenses.

    Yeah, count me out on new jerseys if it means something like the Falcons just rolled out. Yikes

    As lame as Matt Ryan and his nickname

    Jags one foot overseas? To what city, praytell - London?

    Didnít know that. Always wondered why they didnít just go with the Growling panther head sans neck/state map thingy.
