The Carolina Panthers Close Rookie Camp

The Carolina Panthers closed their Rookie Camp last Sunday, and this is just the beginning for their 2012 season.

“It was a good three days for us,” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said. “Now that we’ve gotten a good look at these guys, we’ll take the next couple of days and evaluate. If we think anybody will help us, we’ll sign them.”

Out of the 56 players at camp, 32 were tryout players, and if the Panthers add any of the tryout players, then a man from the 90 man roster will be cut. 90 is the maximum at this point of the year.

Luke Keuchly apparently looked athletic and large out there on the Rookie camp practice field, and surely there were some future Carolina Panthers out on that field with him.
When Guard Will Blackwell accepted the rookie camp invite, he had to make some quick changes having to do with his wedding. He and fiancee, Laura Cummings, were supposed to marry the weekend of rookie camp, switched things quickly to the previous weekend.

“It actually wasn’t that stressful for me,” Blackwell said. “I didn’t have to do the planning – my wife and her mother did the bulk of it. She wanted me to be as clear-minded as possible when I came up here.

“We got engaged in October, and we set the date around then. We knew rookie camp was going to either be last weekend or this weekend, so we kind of took a shot in the dark and missed.”

To all the rookies who tried out, even if they did not make the team, then hopefully the experience will serve them well in the rest of their career.

Watch Cam Newton Put His Own Interests Above The Team

Millions of things have been said about Cam Newton, but this one instance in particular fires me up as a Carolina Panthers fan. With the score 16-10 Broncos, Von Miller knocks the ball out of Newton's hands which leads to a mad scramble. Newton has the opportunity to jump on the ball in the pile, but he decides to back away to protect himself from injury. In a one-possession game in the Super Bowl, Newton should've sacrificed every limb he has to get that ball back for his team, and it's extremely unnerving to me as a fan that he didn't jump in there.

Watch Angry Grandpa Go Insane After Panthers' Loss

The Carolina Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 which disappointed Panthers fans everywhere. I'm going to go out on a limb and say not many fans were as angered by the loss as this elderly man. While a lot of us have the self-control to avoid letting our anger take us this far, this grandpa didn't care and took his frustrations out on the television.

Watch Newton Give Immature Interview, Walk Off

I've defended Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton against his haters all season long, but I can't do it any longer after watching his postgame interview following Super Bowl 50. He needed to be a man and sit up there and answer every question sent his way. If he's going to be the excitable, happy guy fans see after wins, he needs to be a professional after losses. This reeks of immaturity and is something he will need to work on in the future.
