It’s time. The Carolina Panthers season is on the line.
Its not (all) Cam Newton’s fault. The defensive line has been a shadow of their dominant 2015 selves. They have let RB’s roll up big days and QB’s to get comfortable in the pocket while not protecting their linebackers on a regular basis. The defensive backfield misses Josh Norman. The offensive line is a mess and the special teams aren’t.
It is Cam’s responsibility however. Cam is the Carolina Panthers. He is the franchise. The team has been built around his skill set and he needs to come off the mediocrity bench and start playing like a team captain instead of a guy with a Super Bowl hangover.
It’s time. Hell, it’s past time.
