...And let the BOOING BEGIN if it's Newton...and you thought last year was bad 70% of us fans DON'T WANT HIM!..let the first stone be cast!

Cam is the ONLY option. If you think Clausen is capable of leading the Panthers then you surely haven't played collision sports before.

Would JJ in Dallas consider a move up for Peterson? #9 and #40 enough to come down?

AI I rather have clausen and a chance a better qb then newton and. E doing it Mark it Marty and Ron will regret getting Cam if they pick him anyway he doesnt even fit or system

Brian ,fingers crossed ,maybe N.E there trying to move up to get Quinn.

Let me say BOOOO! 1st! BOOOO!

The only way I see Panthers not taking Cam, is if someone else wants Cam or the no.1 more... Otherwise it will turn into a racial load of crap if the Panthers don't take him!

Sorry just form what I have read past months IMHO!!

Trade the pick to Philly. two words--Kevin Kolb---salary 2 mil...west coast offense...plug-n-play...fun again in chlot.

Panthers are desperate to trade pick because, Richardson is too cheap to pay for the #1 pick. And Hurney will look like a clown for picking Clausen last year and Newton this year or using a 2,3,6 and 1 in back to back drafts on quarterbacks. Rivera will want a qb/any qb because Clausen has seen his head coaches depart after his last 2 seasons, and he doesn't want to be #3.

I wouldn't give you amateurs 5 minutes of my time either, will you please go away?

Did anyone see the pre-draft presser on the Carolina Panther web site? If you didn't you should watch it. A reporter asked a real simple question to the Panther's brain trust of Marty Hurney, "Chico" aka Ron Rivera, and Don Gregory. Hurney had his Director of College Scouting, Don Gregory, answer the question for the trio. Who in the heck is Don Gregory? This guy is clueless. He never answered the question. It was comical! No wonder the Panther's suck so bad!! You need to see it first hand because it was sad. It's obvious to me that guy guy doesn't know what he's doing.

10-4. I would support that move... IF, the panthers also got Philly's 2nd round pick tonight. but they won't be trading players tonight, just picks. Kevin Kolb is off the table at least for tonight.

I can't believe they would take Cam. BOO! Jimmy will be fine if we can protect him and provide him with a solid receiving core. Cam is not the answer!

Posted by: Graham | Apr 28, 2011 7:28:11 PM

Take Darius or Green for cryin out loud!

Posted by: Graham | Apr 28, 2011 7:40:18 PM

I cant believe this but if they take cam I wish John was back and that saying something hey I dont think cam is bad but for the Panthers he wont work and please screw the it will be racist Im black and I dont want the Panthers to have Newton hes going tobe a wasted pick and Rivera better learn how to choose his man crushes because this one that will break his heart

Posted by: HUH!!! | Apr 28, 2011 7:42:17 PM

In september BOFA will be called BOOOOFA!..If Hurney picks Cam...then 2yrs later there fired!

Posted by: UNC | Apr 28, 2011 7:47:06 PM

Love the race card on both sides. If they dont Cam, the Panthers are racists. Now some douchebag posts that if they do take him it's because he is black. Panthers can't win.

Posted by: Taylor Batten | Apr 28, 2011 8:02:36 PM

We will loose the at least 14 games and we will be back with the first choice next year staring at Andrew Luck!!!!

This is the worst day of my life! Sorry Jimmy it's not your fault you were drafted by an organization that is a bunch of idiots. Get traded to a contender you will be better off in the long run. Cam is a cheater and always will be. We will see how mature he is when we win only 4 games this year.

Posted by: Graham | Apr 28, 2011 8:12:54 PM

You guys should have take Patrick Peterson. Another Jamarcus Russell makes the big bucks. Carolina will be on the bottom of the Southern division for a good while.

Posted by: Jack Lumpkin | Apr 28, 2011 8:16:33 PM

We like to call this "NO BUENO"

Posted by: Jimmy Clausen | Apr 28, 2011 8:18:50 PM

OK, We got the QB now go get the friggin WR.. and whos that?... look no farther than Chapel Hill--TAKE GREG LITTLE IN THE 3RD ROUND--Continue to build this offense, Greg is a beast and a definite pro prototype. Don't blow it, Hurney!

Posted by: DieHardCat | Apr 28, 2011 9:08:23 PM

Cam Newton will be a 50 million dollar fraud!!!

After he was picked he told Dion Saunders that he's ready to go on a vacation with his family. Nice going Hurney! Way to screw up another draft pick!!!!
