"Cam Newton is a lucky man, and he knows it.  His accident on Tuesday scared many, but it’s a relief to know that he is safe and recovering nicely.I am intrigued to see how this affects Newton on the field.  A brush with a life-altering event does something to people, and Newton is no different.  He already posted a heart-felt and emotional note on Instagram, so it’s definitely shaken him up."

"Mike Tolbert and the Panthers are heading into this Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay with their vision still set on a playoff run.Tolbert has a more optimistic plan, and it ends with the Panthers winning the Super Bowl.  The Panthers are starting a new quarterback, have the emotional news of Cam Newton’s accident floating around the locker room and are trying to use last week’s game in New Orleans as momentum for this week’s game."

Panthers won’t change offense much for Derek Anderson

David Newton –

"Derek Anderson is a cool customer and is one of my favorite players on the team.  He demonstrated his calmness during yesterday’s media Q&A.The Panthers had success the last time Anderson started, and it was against the Buccaneers in week one.  He won’t be the scrambling and running QB like Newton, but will stand-and-deliver this team to victory.  He knows the offense well and his veteran knowledge will help him make the right decisions."

"Brandon Williams was the only player ejected from last Sunday’s endzone fight, and he plans to appeal the fine from the NFL.Williams was in the middle of the chaos and was being pushed around a lot, and did throw a “punch”.  The NFL rules are pretty clear on this, so we wish ‘Swole Bones’ the best of luck in getting his cash back.  If he doesn’t win the appeal, it would be nice to see the players chip in and show the unity that they have for one another."
