Carolina Panthers Trade Jeff Otah To New York Jets For Draft Pick

+Read full article

Jeff Otah is going to give New York Jets fans something to cheer about this coming season.  The team acquired the tackle from the Carolina Panthers for a draft pick.  This trade means that Wayne Hunter is no longer starting and Jets fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

Very smart move by the Jets to make sure their quarterbacks do not end up getting killed.  Jeff Otah is very good at his job and should make Jets fans forget about the woes of the offensive line for a little bit.  He is not a cure all but he is certainly a step in the right direction.

This move is kind of weird from the stance of the Panthers, but they must have thought Jeff Otah had done his job for them and that a pick could be work better for them in the future.  The Jets are certainly happy to take Jeff Otah.  There are very few times when you can get a starting tackle for just a draft pick.  Normally guys like that have to be taken decently high in the draft.

So ends the Hunter era, which is bad for opponents and great for the Jets.  He wasn’t exactly very good at his job.  Jeff Otah certainly makes Hunter look like a giant scrub.  There is nothing wrong with that for Jets fans.  Hunter might be best as a backup who only has to play in extreme emergencies.

Great move for the Jets and the health of their fans.

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.
