Offseason examination: Cam’s health is key for Carolina Panthers | Pro Football Talk | NBC Sports

    McCaffrey is just like MJD just with more juke and fluidity but maybe not the top end speed. Both guys small, fast, versatile and can Go between tackles effectly with power.

  2. Chauncey Ellerbee on February 19, 2020 at 5:35 pm

    Dont forget Bruce Irvin as leadership for the defense especially the young edge rusher like Burns + Christian Miller" and Bruce Irvin (nice + fast) off the edge himself….

  3. osbert on February 19, 2020 at 5:38 pm

    22 on dat dere

  4. Walter Gregg on February 19, 2020 at 5:38 pm

    They forgot about HOOOOGAAAN!

  5. Tony Lewis on February 19, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    Cam gets hurt every year

  6. Ethan Myers on February 19, 2020 at 5:40 pm

    You just said it, three years ago, has done absolutely nothing since, got two years left, I’m ready for him and Ron to go tired of hearing there head scratching quotes a joke last year starting 6-2 then finish 7-9 yeah no coach anywhere else would’ve kept his job

  7. Anthony Rochelle on February 19, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    I’m so ready Go Panthers I love my Team

  8. Chris Nowak on February 19, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    Keep Pounding

  9. Rob Melton on February 19, 2020 at 5:45 pm

    14-2. SUPERBOWL

  10. trill 1 on February 19, 2020 at 5:46 pm

    Cam’s never had an ankle surgery. He got hurt because of that bum o line

  11. The Watcher on February 19, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    Cam is done 2015 was his peak and he fell short….he’s been strong arming throws since week 1 of 2011 and won’t change no wonder his shoulder is busted…and it’s too late to change not to mention he waited to have surgery on it. He make think he’s SUPERMAN but in reality his shoulder is HANDYMAN.

  12. Jake Wilson on February 19, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    I think Cam Newton is going to win a Superbowl Championship with the Carolina Panthers and hopefully wins another. I got the Panthers to go 11-5 this year and win the Superbowl in 2019. Keep pounding panthers!!! I believe that Cam Newton will win his very first Superbowl Championship ever in 2019!!! Keep pounding panthers!!! Go Panthers!!! Win the Superbowl!!! I love Cam Newton!!! He’s the best dual threat quarterback in the NFL!!! Keep pounding panthers!!! Go Panthers!!!

  13. Based Zoe on February 19, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    Great Analysis On The Panthers 💯 All Factz

  14. Chaos A.D. on February 19, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Cam Newton doesn’t get the roughing-the-passer calls because of his playing style and his size. That’s not going to change so if he’s not going to change his playing style in order to stay healthy then he is putting his own ego above the good of the team.

  15. The Overnight Snail on February 19, 2020 at 5:53 pm

    Nah the qb they just drafted can do just fine with this offense

  16. Gerald Fields on February 19, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    They are way underestimating Will Grier’s ability to be elusive and under rating his arm strength. He has a beautiful long ball and VERY accurate.

  17. Chief W on February 19, 2020 at 5:59 pm

    Crazy thing is Cam got hurt throwing…..not running

  18. Hall Anthony on February 19, 2020 at 6:00 pm

    of course the QB’s health is key. Same with every other team

  19. Jerrick Cole on February 19, 2020 at 6:01 pm


  20. Ivory Smith on February 19, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    You guys realize Cam has only missed 5 games in his Career right?

  21. Big daddy P on February 19, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    Thx Mike F. I listen to you every week on the fan. I appreciate you not down playing the Panthers. 🙂 looking forward to hearing you on 610 the fan

  22. Bryce T Sawyer on February 19, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    Thanx for my fantasy foozball suggestion..

  23. Doug neader on February 19, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    Matt leaving is a blessing..

  24. JDoc Fitness on February 19, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    Cam’s been on a plateau for forever. No one has thought any more or any less of him since he’s been in the league. How often do you see Cam Newton highlights pop up on Sports Center because he did something amazing during the season. Wish he was more of the dynamic player he was in college

  25. Nickcoli Alexander on February 19, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    Keep pounding

  26. REDSUN BATRONE on February 19, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    Yes! NFC CHAMPIONS! CMC 2500 all purpose yards! We’re used to haters!
    Keep Pounding!!!

  27. Uneeda Sims on February 19, 2020 at 6:09 pm


  28. Avery Webb on February 19, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    These guys obviously have no clue. The defense will be good as always???? Our defense was our demise last year. They got tore up almost every game. Our defense was sp bad last year. Cam didnt stay in the pocket "all day long" like they said. He has minimal seconds to get the ball out because the o-line sucks like it has for yearssss. These guys are so out of touch. Why even listen to their ramble? These two are just a couple of guys who havent watched a single panthers game and just read the title for facebook articles. Idiots

  29. The Brothers Blue on February 19, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    Kawaan Short was underwhelming? He was rated second in clutch plays by PFF last year. Who was first? Aaron Donald.

  30. lawC0vRu pl7mnz&* on February 19, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    I watched a recent interview, Cam should take this season serious. He’s approach to this coming season should be of maturity, focus and advantage. He has the offensive weapons.
    The organization is making the defensive moves to compliment.
    Then again its a business

  31. Underground Wes on February 19, 2020 at 6:11 pm

    Carolina coming back strong this season. Don’t sleep on my Panthers NFL . Our motto is KEEP POUNDING!!!! no more talk!!

  32. Geoff Thompson on February 19, 2020 at 6:12 pm

    The Panthers need Cam Healthy. And they need their offense putting up points.

  33. Xeroshigaki on February 19, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    This was a great realistic evaluation. Keep it up!

  34. singingchef23 on February 19, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    Who will be Cams top target? One day they will get him a real 1, it would take pressure off CMC as well

  35. Brian Wallace on February 19, 2020 at 6:15 pm

    All I’m gonna say is Keep Pounding real fans know what we will do this year

  36. betsy womble on February 19, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    CMAC with those deltoids and biceps 👀🏋🏾‍♀️💪🏾 He did have a play to throw the ball last year🤔 I would love to see more! Go Panthers! Keep pounding 💙🖤💙🖤

  37. ASAP REL on February 19, 2020 at 6:17 pm

    Okay… so it’s ok that Cam doesn’t get certain calls because he look indestructible?? That’s not ok. Cam should get every call that Rodgers or Brady would get. Sorry.

  38. Amari Martin on February 19, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    I see two smart well informed gentlemen.

  39. Rico Suave on February 19, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    People don’t seem to understand. Cam is not a winner. They look at all his physical capabilities & wonder why he isn’t better. He’s not cerebral. He runs too often and that doesn’t lend itself to longevity. People fall in love with a highlight and a dance that he does but don’t mention all his poor decision making. That all gets overlooked and swept under the rug. He’s not a leader of men. He’s all about himself. He cares more about what celebration he’s going to do next rather than winning for the team. You’ll hear people like Stephen A. Smith say Brett Favre celebrates and I don’t hear anybody saying anything. The difference is Brett would carry a teammate on his shoulder after throwing a go-ahead touchdown. Cam will run for a 1 yard touchdown and do the Superman pose with his team still being down 25 points on the scoreboard. Stephen A. wont tell you that. If Cam is unwilling to throw himself on top of a fumble in the superbowl to secure possession for the team that’s clear evidence that he isn’t a winner. That was selfish. Then he leaves the post press conference. He isn’t a leader and never will be.

  40. Daegan Patterson on February 19, 2020 at 6:23 pm

    He’s vegan now so he won’t get injured

  41. Ryan Davis on February 19, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    CMac is a monster. What about Will Grier? You don’t think he CAN be a viable backup?

  42. Jai Norman on February 19, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    Cam Newton should be 2019 MVP.

  43. M Neck99 on February 19, 2020 at 6:25 pm

    Panthers are not winning more than 8 games

  44. Calvin Baskerville on February 19, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    How much I would like to root for Cam they aren’t gonna win the super bowl for sure…

  45. Bryce Wilson on February 19, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    i really doubt the panthers win the NFC south

  46. Eric Smith on February 19, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    War eagle auburn university

  47. thomas grant on February 19, 2020 at 6:30 pm

    He got hurt last year while in the pocket, not running.

  48. eric Heinke on February 19, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    Carolina Panthers will be the sleeper that might go to the Super Bowl 2020. Olsen stays healthy and Ian Thomas improve dangerous TE set. Plus our WR will be dangerous. We got some young RB’s Holyfield and Scarlett. Offensive line will be awesome. Only weak spot could be Secondary. Front Seven will be dangerous. Keep Pounding!!

  49. Franco Bradshaw on February 19, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    Isn’t the starting QBs health key to every team ??? Like Eagles and Packers more than Panthers . Cam has only missed like 8 games in 5 seasons with 3 playoff trips . Jeeeeez

  50. Phyllis Eldridge on February 19, 2020 at 6:32 pm

    He needs’s not fair to him..smh😕
