“The past couple of games have been the same script, by the same director,” Newton said. “It’s kind of getting boring.”

“This taste, this vibe — I’m not buying it, man. And I don’t know what it is, but something’s going to have to change. Something’s going to have to change real fast.”



“I’m going to bring in a suggestion box. And I want your suggestions in that suggestion box, because I sure don’t know. I really don’t,” Newton said


“We just find a way to keep the game close just to see what happens at the end,” Newton said. “I’m getting tired of it, and that’s not a formula to win. Domination is a formula to win.”

i dont know, i dont want to say he has a point but that team the last two seasons spent so much money they are at the salary cap. They gave 1000000 billion to one DE and a bunch of LBers and they paid a shitload for 45 RBs that cant do anything.

For all the money that team has spent they are ****ing terrible. Those contracts their owner gave out were awful.


they have a better QB than the Chiefs but their positional talent is more overrated and overpaid than the Chiefs by far. Cam is the only thing keeping that team in games or they would be the worst in the league.

you didnt hear any of this last year when they were losing every game and he was padding his individual stats getting his. He didnt care if they lost last year because he would throw for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns, so he was able to get his brand out there.

Now that hes throwing for 200 yards and 1 touchdown and 2 picks a game, and its effecting his individual stat lines, while still losing he's going to blame the playcalling/team

i dont think he cares about winning or losing I think he cares about doing either in style or that term "swag" people throw around

10-21-2012, 06:44 PM
Having the "intangibles" is necessary (but not sufficient - as we have seen with Cassel) to be a great NFL QB. How can you guys watch this and think Newton has those intangibles? I was embarrassed for the guy.

But nobody should be surprised when he does or says something stupid. Just as people shouldn't act surprised about the way Dez Bryant has turned out.

Will be interesting to see how Cam handles this. I think he's too cocky not to be motivated to turn this thing around.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne (24) makes an interception in the end zone on
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton (1) as Dallas Cowboys inside linebacker Bruce Carter (54) watches.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton:
“The past couple of games have been the same script, by the same director,” Newton said.

Cam Newton's comments, will be open to interpretation that he is calling for a coaching change.

“I’m going to bring in a suggestion box. And I want your suggestions in that suggestion box, because I sure don’t know. I really don’t,” Newton said.

It sounds like the second year time bomb is ticking away and he warned the media to bring a suggestion box because he's out of answers on how to turn things around.

"We got to take the officials out of the game." Newton said.

Cam Newton needs to transition to a pro-style offense. Defenses figured out quick his college offense.

Despite the pretty numbers Carolina quarterback Cam Newton attained as a rookie last season, he never generated a signature late fourth-quarter drive.

If you’re confused as to where Newton was trying to go with this press conference, you’re not alone. Newton’s reply was concise.

“I’m not the playcaller.” he said after flailing his arms a bit. “I’m speaking for [Offensive Coordinator Mike Chudzinski] but you’ve to to have a balanced offense. The running game hasn’t been as exciting as we want it to be but you still have got to call those plays.”

“It’s getting boring, something needs to change,” said Newton.

Sounds like Newton is calling out his teammates. When in fact, you have another loss in a season that has been full of turnovers by Newton in the end zone.

If RGIII' your guy, thought you might enjoy this article, to be published online - NY Post.

Excerpt: The Giants praise Robert Griffin III

“That guy is flat out unbelievable,” Umenyiora said after the Giants survived their first test of the season against the Redskins and Griffin. “He’s the best quarterback we’ve played all year for sure,” Umenyiora said. “It’s unfortunate he’s a rookie because he’s going to be around here forever doing stuff like that and that’s just crazy.”

He kept the Giants guessing and off-balance throughout the game, faking handoffs, escaping pressure, making big throws and long runs. His signature moment came with 2:07 left in the fourth quarter when on fourth-and-10, he escaped the rush of Jason Pierre-Paul and then Umenyiora before completing a 19-yard pass to tight end Logan Paulsen. It extended the drive that led to the go-ahead touchdown pass to Moss.

“It’s hard to game-plan for that guy,” Tuck said. “He takes away your enthusiasm for the game a little bit when you play a play perfect and you still have a guy with 4.3 speed who make plays.”

It looked like a dominant game by the Giants defense. They collected three sacks, including the first of the season by Tuck. They forced four turnovers, including three fumble recoveries. The last one came with 39 seconds left when linebacker Chase Blackburn stripped Santana Moss from the ball and cornerback Jayron Hosley recovered.

Working out of the spread option-offense, Griffin was a menace and a marvel. He completed 20 of 28 passes for 258 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran nine times for 89 yards, including a 28-yard gain. His 30-yard TD pass to Moss with 1:32 was a perfect over-the-shoulder throw that gave the Redskins a 23-20 lead and hushed MetLife Stadium.

He kept the Giants guessing and off-balance throughout the game, faking handoffs, escaping pressure, making big throws and long runs. His signature moment came with 2:07 left in the fourth quarter when on fourth-and-10, he escaped the rush of Jason Pierre-Paul and then Umenyiora before completing a 19-yard pass to tight end Logan Paulsen. It extended the drive that led to the go-ahead touchdown pass to Moss.

“It’s hard to game-plan for that guy,” Tuck said. “He takes away your enthusiasm for the game a little bit when you play a play perfect and you still have a guy with 4.3 speed who make plays.”

But the Giants’ defense made its share of plays, too. Pierre-Paul forced a fourth-quarter fumble by Griffin that was recovered by Linval Joseph, and Blackburn sealed the game by taking it away from Moss.

“You wrap and rip,” Blackburn said. “When you feel the ball you have to go after it.”

That’s the only way the Giants were going to beat the Redskins yesterday. Wrap and rip.

“They force you to dig down in and make some plays,” said Giants coach Tom Coughlin.

The Giants’ coaching staff made several defensive adjustments in the second half, altering the way they attacked if given certain looks. It was as much a mental game as it was physical.

Perhaps the more the Giants see Griffin and the Redskins offense the better they’ll be able to defend it. But that might be wishful thinking.

A true leader deflects praise to his teammates and accepts full responsibility for the teams failures...regardless of who is truly at fault.


A true leader rallies the troops on the field. It's not about taking it on his shoulders after the game. It's taking it on his shoulders during the game.

I'm not saying it's not important to be a leader off of the field but, it pales in comparison to on the field.

So Charlotte is full of stupid fans just like KC?

I assume this is thread you were talking about? I'm not seeing any evidence or talk of Cam calling out the GM.

You're everything that's wrong with Chiefs fans.

Why? Because I value leadership and brains in a quarterback the most? There's a lesson to be learned here and we don't want another Cassel. We better get the right guy. Arm strength etc. is great but it pales in comparison to what is most important for quarterbacks.

“We just find a way to keep the game close just to see what happens at the end,” Newton said. “I’m getting tired of it, and that’s not a formula to win. Domination is a formula to win.”

I don't watch enough Panther's football to say for sure what all their problems are but I fully support Cam on this statement if they're running some type of martyball system.

Hate it when a team's goal is this defeatist attitude of "Just keep it close until the 4th. Maybe we'll get lucky and squeak out a win." Cam is 100% spot on that's not how you do it.

What the fuck have they put around Newton? JFC. Their offensive line outside of Jordan Gross and Ryan Kalil is shit and Kalil is on the IR. They continually trot out shit at WR outside of Steve Smith.....who is basically like a midget Randy Moss. The GM went out and paid a shit ton of money for 3 RBs that they don't fucking use. And all of the money that they've put into that defense has amounted to dick. I'd be pissed if I was Newton as well.

I think the problem is that they are not running the ball enough with the RBs. they have Williams, Stewart, and Tolbert and they ran the ball 21 times. Six of those runs were from Cam. It's not marty ball.

I agree that you don't know what you have in a player after three years but, this is interesting. This is the scouting report by Pro Football Weekly on Cam prior to the draft.

Negatives: Played in a simplified, run-first, dive-option read offense with very basic high-low reads. Worked exclusively out of the gun and was very quick to run at the first flash of coverage. Limited field vision — does not process the passing game. Inconsistent throwing mechanics with a flick delivery — generates all of his power from his upper-body strength and too often arms the ball. Streaky passer with spotty accuracy. Makes his receivers work hard and throws into coverage. Does not spin a tight spiral. Very disingenuous — has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup. Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them. Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law — does not command respect from teammates and always will struggle to win a locker room. Only a one-year producer. Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness — is not punctual, seeks shortcuts and sets a bad example. Immature and has had issues with authority. Not dependable.

Everything you always wanted to know about Panthers quarterback Cam Newton:


Who's more childish, Cam Newton or his critics?

Slate.com Oct 22, 2012

Second-year Carolina quarterback Cam Newton spent his bye week "visiting a haunted house, go-kart racing, watching movies, playing video games and doing plenty of self-evaluation.' "These were, presumably, not his only activities; there are enough hours in the day for going to Chuck E. Cheese's and practicing and watching game film. But in an already-lost Panthers season that began, optimistically enough, with a Super Bowl guarantee (the Panther who made that proclamation is out for the year), Newton is learning that when things are going bad between the hash marks, people actually pay attention to your words and your body language and your off-the-field activities.

Toward the end of last season, the rookie Newton was giving a talking-to by Panthers vets, who told him not to sulk so obviously when things don't go well. It was blown off, because very little hadn't gone well for Newton that season. But last month, when cameras caught receiver Steve Smith getting in his face on the sidelines during a blowout loss against the Giants, the narrative changed. The brooding Newton was no longer an aberration but the norm. And as Carolina losses pile up, Newton's increasingly pointed postgame statements have become ripe for dissection and psychoanalysis.

Yesterday's didn't disappoint. Wearing the comfiest sweater in Charlotte, a flustered Newton was at a loss for answers but not a loss for words:
"The past couple of games have been the same script, by the same director. It's kind of getting boring. This taste, this vibe—I'm not buying it, man. And I don't know what it is, but something's going to have to change. Something's going to have to change real fast.

I'm going to leave this room, and I'm going to bring in a suggestion box, and I want your suggestions to be in that suggestion box because I sure don't know. I really don't. I wish I could tell you. But the only thing I control, sweetheart, is myself. Offensively, I am the leader of this bunch, and we haven't been getting the job done."

This is a normal and healthy response (other than calling the female reporter "sweetheart"). Coming from any other player, these concepts would be chalked up to the frustrations of someone who wants to win. But from Newton—or at least, the Newton of this year—they're taken as evidence of immaturity; as throwing teammates and coaches under the bus; as a player unwilling to own up to his own failings. Maybe it's because the NFL media have gotten to know and to dislike Newton, but the usual script has been flipped. Under ordinary circumstances, it's a good thing when a player is upset by losing—he's a gamer, he's a competitor, he just wants to win so badly. Cam Newton? He's pouting, he's never had to deal with losing in his life, he needs to learn how to lose with grace. (“Instead of acting like an NFL quarterback, Newton is acting like a child,” writes ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas.)

Newton might be a victim of inflated hype. Compare his numbers from this season and last, and they're not markedly different. Yes, this year's are worse in almost every category, but only by the barest of margins.

The difference is that little was expected from him last year, so he exceeded even the most hopeful projections. This year we expected more, and he hasn't delivered. Yet it's not unheard of for a second-year player to take a step backward. Matt Ryan let his team to the playoffs in Year 1, regressed the next season, and then bounced back better than ever. And by definition, a first-overall pick is going to end up playing for a terrible team. Newton and the Panthers defied the curve in his rookie season and poisoned all hope of reasonable expectations.

But even if sophomores aren't supposed to put it all together yet, they're not supposed to regress. The blind heave on second and goal that gave Dallas' Morris Claiborne an end-zone interception was inexplicable and just the second Cowboys pick all year. Newton wants suggestions on what to change? How about no more tosses like that?

Things change fast. Think of all the fawning write-ups of Robert Griffin III, another double threat who came into the league with doubters and won them over instantly. Everything you've read about Griffin's poise, and maturity, and skill—all of that was already written about Newton last year. But after just six games' worth of struggles, not even a half season, Newton is getting the full Vince Young treatment.

There are lots of folks who want Newton to fail. Nearly all of that attitude dates to his brief-but-eventful college career: the legal trouble at Florida, the shady recruiting at Mississippi State, his perceived arrogance at Auburn as the controversy swirled around him. Remember his now-legendary draft scouting report from Pro Football Weekly? At the time it was derided as petty, inconsequential character assassination. With the new-old Newton narrative, it seems almost prescient.

Limited field vision—does not process the passing game. Inconsistent throwing mechanics with a flick delivery—generates all of his power from his upper-body strength and too often arms the ball. Streaky passer with spotty accuracy. Makes his receivers work hard and throws into coverage. Does not spin a tight spiral. Very disingenuous—has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup. Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them. Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law—does not command respect from teammates and always will struggle to win a locker room. Only a one-year producer. Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness—is not punctual, seeks shortcuts and sets a bad example. Immature and has had issues with authority. Not dependable.

[H]e always will test the rules, be difficult to manage and lacks the intangibles to win the trust of a locker room. Will require a very strong-willed, demanding coach to live up to his potential and avoid the trappings of fame and fortune, but even the greatest taskmaster will not be able to keep away the drama that is still swirling from a stained Heisman Trophy and littered recruiting trail that Newton left in the SEC. Can provide an initial spark, but will quickly be dissected and contained by NFL defensive coordinators, struggle to sustain success and will not prove worthy of an early investment. An overhyped, high-risk, high-reward selection with a glaring bust factor, Newton is sure to be drafted more highly than he should and could foreclose a risk-taking GM's job and taint a locker room.

There haven't yet been whispers of a divided locker room, but GM Marty Hurney was fired Monday morning. Coach Ron Rivera is probably next. Most other quarterbacks would be viewed with patience if, after just 22 career starts, the front office was still struggling to build a team around them. The scrutiny of Newton, the venom as he appears to live up to the worst perceptions, shows he's not going to get that leeway. He can wave away all character concerns by returning to his improbably high standards of play, but he's not about to receive a lot of sympathy as he tries.

Who's more childish? Cam Newton.

The NFL might be weighing in on his lack of leadership now, but Newton's parents have seen it for 15 years.

Newton said during last season that he would become a leader and change his selfish ways. He said he would immediately stop brooding on the sideline with (multiyear partnership) Gatorade towels draped over his head. In addition, Newton should be on the sidelines working with his offensive coordinator and focus on film with his teammates.

Which, for some, raises the question: Can Newton learn a thing or two about leadership? I have my doubts.
