Smitty wins an awards and nothing written. I am really get tired of Cam Newton media hype like there are no other players on the team. This is getting as bad as Tebow. How many articles have to be written on his every move.

Either way this guy needs toned down. We have yet to win any games to get any where.

Ray, what exactly did Smitty win, he was nominated for 'Comeback Player of the Year' but to my knowledge that went to Stafford?

You people find anything to complain about, the man had a great year, people say we didnt have any wins, dont blame him, we had no defense. Panther fans cry too damn much, we finally got a quaterback that gets us national attention, now its too much. you can sit back and sit in the dark, and sit in your country bucket you call home. the rest of us will enjoy the ride, and you can enjoy the bobcats national success, oh wait nevermind. finally got a qb and you wanna cry. and to what a joke, o-line for the nfc, didnt block either, so the afc didnt show us anything we seen what he could do all year.

Ray? are you kiddinng me? You are pissed that there is a small article about him winning rookie of the year? Ok. We shouldn't care about that, you're right...not! Dumb....

And what did Smitty win? nothing you say? he got 3/50 votes for comeback player. That's it.

Ray = not smart

Congratulations Cam and Steve Smith, and also to Ryan Kalil, the best center in the game.

wow...such bigotry still exist in the South.

Posted by: sandra | Feb 5, 2012 10:18:00 AM

Yeah if Andrew Luck came out last year and played for the panthers and had the same record and awards all the racist folks would be lining up singing the praises. But since we have Cam and a darker skin tone, he's the worse ever! Such a predictive ignorant class of pale face folks that live in this area!

rayven, you're another redneck that can't spell...It's spelled Newton, DUMBASS!!!!

Ive never quite understood why fans who like the panthers, and call themselves "GoPanthers2012" can rip on a rookie F***ing QB that plays for the panthers. A rookie F***ing QB that broke almost every record fathomable. Did a Ginger named Dalton break a single record.... Nobody knows and nobody cares. This is Charlotte, you are reading the Charlotte Observer. Stick some dynamite up your A**, light the fuse and blow yourselves the F*** up you POS haters.

Man will you clowns please shut up about dalton winning that award. More wins....okay that's a team effort you idiots. This award is for an individual so stop including wins. There was A poll last year about the most unloyal fan base and the panthers topped it....I said that was not true but after reading some of the crap that people post about they own team they may have been right...
