Listen: Cam Newton, Cleveland Browns, Panthers discussed on WGR Programming
"Over the metal collar slip to the twenty near side fifteen at ten o'clock. I'm okay with that call right there. I'll take a touchdown from midfield when you run into minute offense any day wow. Panthers radio network as they get the win thirty eight twenty their first over Arizona again look it's only Arizona but here's the thing cam Newton has not been cam Newton is not been Superman since maybe two thousand and fifteen and the biggest thing to me was the previous Thursday night when they had an opportunity fourth and less than a one lesson one yard what with the Carolina Panthers have done if cam Newton cam Newton he was the best one yard to yard ill short yardage maybe back in the entire game I mean this guy six five to sixty he's Superman he goes into the line he he that that's it eat your get a fourth in when you get a third one you get the third and short whatever it is he's not the same guy and not only that I cook can't put my finger on it but it doesn't seem like he's well liked it just seems like there's some weird vibe around the Panthers that he is always kind of been this individual it is not a great leader and I don't care what he wears off I don't care about any anything like that it just seems like you rubs guys the wrong way I'm not saying the plate harder for Kyle Alan and how do you bench a guy who wins the game those four touchdown passes has a one forty four rating the bench that guy I don't care can was the number one overall pick I'm not gonna compound the problem by playing the lesser player you can't do that you can lose a job because of injury trusted I place like that check this out though this season alone he's thrown for five hundred and seventy two yards no touchdowns passes and one interception and he has a twenty three percent quarterback rating the lowest in the area yeah the lowest in the league I mean I don't even have to look at stats you can just you can just see him he just doesn't look right now look again I hate that it's an injury but to get it but it's not an excuse this is a bit sports is a bottom line business you can talk about it to even talk about injuries all you want sometimes their excuses sometimes their explanations it's been a few years and cam Newton was right if I'm the Carolina Panthers I'm Ron Rivera and I wanna keep my job I'm in the front office of the Carolina Panthers only keep my job I got a twenty three year old kid who do. it's one out and threw four touchdown passes no interceptions and looked really good better than cam Newton is looked in years he start until he proves he's not the starter it's a delicate situation and if you guys heard Ron Rivera this week he was sparring with the media they want to ask questions about Kaman cams injury and when scanned gonna be back in there and Ron wanted no part of it and I would imagine now that cal Allen is has had a four touchdown no interception game and they got a victory on the road that there's gonna be more questions about cam and more questions about the quarterback spot it will be very interesting to see if Rivera how he deals with it because he got his entire locker room watching you gotta think the cams got support in that room to some degree he was the starting quarterback until I don't know today and I'm it how Ron Rivera handles this is probably gonna be the defining element of the Panthers season. I twenty thirteen the rams hang on against the Cleveland Browns we are a wrap for the week three in the NFL Sunday night football over in Cleveland to fill you in next everything you need to know what it means for the rams what it means for the Browns okay not on ESPN radio and ESPN at. the."
