    The 2019-2020 Carolina Panthers soap opera

    1. Is Cam healthy?

    I'm as excited for this Panthers team as I've ever been, AND it's an odd-numbered year. I say they go 13-3 and beat Da Bears in the NFC Championship game before defeating Jacksonville in the first-ever Cat Bowl. (I picked Chicago and Jacksonville solely for the storylines.)

    Am I setting myself up for disappointment? You bet I am!

    That really is the only question of importance. A healthy and upright Cam makes the Panthers a top tier team. For all the (unjustified) hate Cam gets he has been an elite qb year in and year out and a sure fire hall of famer if he continues.

    See item #1 post #1 of the thread. 😏

    For what it's worth, Christian Mcaffrey(I don't know how to spell his last name off the top of my head, and neither does my phone) is considered the most valuable running back in the league this year in fantasy football, depending on what format you play. If cam is healthy, and Christian continues to live up to the hype it could be a fun year. The d-line is sneaky good, if the secondary can hold its water, this could be a great season. Lots of pieces have to fall the right way, and they cannot afford injury at QB or RB. That's not too much to ask right?

    This is our year! There is no doubt that Cam's shoulder is fully healed and stronger than it has ever been. Our offense with him, CMC and all of our speedy receivers will have us in position to score points in droves.

    The defense finally has our pass rusher and will have a much, much better year with a great line and the best linebacker in the league captaining the troops.

    I predict 13-3 and the Cats first Superbowl win.

    All this will happen, just mark it down!

    How's that for optimism?

    We are finally rid of those two awful, terrible, no good receivers. Hopefully the young guys are ready to step up, we have to have the least experienced WR corps in the NFL. Maybe in the history of the NFL? (Wait, apparently we got Chris Hogan? When the heck did that happen? Still, if Chris Hogan is playing a significant role this season I don't like our chances). I am excited for the potential.

    I am very nervous about Cam's shoulder holding up through the season, and also about how our defense will handle the change to 3-4.

    Scuttlebut out of minicamp and preseason is that Curtis Samuel has looked really, really good.

    Here's the play in which Cam hurt his foot. Doesn't look too bad. Maybe a twisted ankle?

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    It was nice to see Cam throw, but that was some seriously flat offense before hand and not the promising outlook I was hoping to see.

    This is why some of us hate preseason football. Absolutely no reason for him to even be on the field.

    I think we can safely stick a fork in this season. Probably this coaching this staff. Cam Newton?

    Why? Our defense has looked improved and our offense has moved the ball well in both games.

    I, um, don't know exactly how to respond to that.

    Tell him Denial is not a river in Eqypt...

    Clearly this is a stale team...the bloom is off for Rivera, for Cam, for Norv...boring team, and not very good. Bad combination.

    Not a Carolina Fan

    IMHO Newton is either hurt or over the hill.
    Not a threat to run and a mediocre passer.

    They have a good defense and some very good players but you need top flight QB to win and Cam certainly was not it tonight.

    I assume that in the rain delay the NFL officials went home and some Pony League guys replaced them.

    Saying Newton is mediocre is giving too much credit to his passing right now. He's just awful throwing the ball. And seems reluctant to run..

    Iím not ready to put a fork in the season at 0-2 even if it is a grim start.

    Iím not sure Iíve seen the amount of talent the Panthers assemble underperform as a team.

    If nothing changes, I have to believe the Cam Newton era is coming to a close.
