So it seems as though Panther Nation is sensitive to the topic of Cam vs Luck. I posed the question on Facebook “Would you trade Cam for Luck?” 375 responses later (and counting) I realized that this is not your ordinary Panther topic. Why does this question resonate? I can’t speak for all of Panther Nation but I can speak for myself and I can share some of the posts. Let me know if you agree and then vote for who you think is better, Andrew Luck or Super Cam.

Plenty of questions have been brewing around what the Carolina Panthers were/are going to do at wide receiver. Letting the likes of Steve Smith, Brandon Lafell, Ted Ginn, and Domenik Hixson leave for other teams. Those 4 were the top 4 receivers for Cam Newton last year. So who is Cam going to target this year out wide? Signing Tiquan Underwood and Jason Avant is a good start, and first round pick Kelvin Benjamin is expected to evolve as the go-to-guy.

When the Charlotte Observer's Jonathan Jones wrote of the Carolina Panthers 'Hey, you're projected the sorriest receivers in the NFL,' quarterback Cam Newton came out swinging.

Recently I have been questioned as to why I follow American Football, and in particular what drew me into being a Carolina Panthers fan. Quite simply I love the NFL for all the same reasons any avid follower of the sport will. It’s brutality in the tackles. It’s speed. The athleticism of the players. The technique required to provide the endless entertainment. In short, much of the same reasons the British public follow ‘soccer’.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers invited former Carolina Panther David Gettis to training camp tryouts this week. Gettis was a favorite of mine during his intermittent time in Carolina. The rookie standout, faced continual injury problems, ending his Panther career returning from a torn ACL and hampered by hamstring injuries. Gettis was quickly forgotten by most fans and written off entirely by the new Gettleman regime, even after a strong 2013 preseason.

Don’t beat yourself up Panther fans, your next great wide receiver could be right under your nose. Well, 250 miles east under your nose at East Carolina University. Greenville, North Carolina is where NFL recruiters have discovered what two years ago would have been considered a “diamond in the rough.” Enter current ECU Wide Receiver/Punt Returner Justin Hardy. After a jaw dropping sixty-four reception, 658 yard, six touchdown and Conference USA All-Freshman team campaign, Hardy has done nothing but amass two seasons of inspired offensive production—202 receptions and 2,389 yards, averaging over a first down every time he catches the ball and let’s not forget those nineteen touchdowns. Consistent play like this has elevated the 6’1 190 lb Hardy off the list of NFL possible gems and onto a lot of NFL recruiter’s top wide receiver’s board for the 2015 draft.

This video of Graham Gano is impressive. What I like the most is his reaction after he makes the kick, he points at the camera as if to say "you know I'm the man." He has a laugh after that, but I think the point is made. Gano has been money since joining the Panthers. He is 33/38 on field goals since joining the team 22 games ago. His confidence is soaring and he must feel he can make anything. Judging by this footage, it looks like he can.

When I wrote for catcrave.com over on the Fansided network, my then-editor asked all the writers to do a piece on who the Panthers should take with their #9 overall pick.
Since we're currently in "wait and see" mode in the offseason, I thought I'd reprint it and share it with our loyal readers here at CarolinaCatChronicles:

Click the "here:" part to open it in a new window and compare to read along with me here. Also, each individual page has a direct link you can click on to open a new page and look there. However, most of the stats have two pages so if you want to compare Cam to the entire field of QBs, click on the link above, underlined, where I indicated and it will take you to the main page of the PFW piece.
The subject? QB efficiency by down and distance....and the numbers for Cam are not good.

Twitter has turned out to be a good source for inspiration. Sometimes it inspires me to have a good day or to do additional research,
but today my musing turned to hatred. Some PantherFans recently engaged in a Twitter war with our “Friends” down I-85 South.
