    "I mean, I felt like I would've been even more successful if ... I don't know, man ... If I would've ... Looking back on it, I should've just been drafted by somebody else. I should've never went to Carolina. Truly, I just think Carolina was bad for me. It was a bad fit from the get-go," he told the website.

    "If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying? Any other accurate quarterback like Rodgers or Eli Manning or Big Ben -- anybody! -- quarterbacks with knowledge, that know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball. It just felt like I wasn't in that position."

    Benjamin: I was limited by Panthers, Newton

    Typical Nole.....the panthers went 15-1 and to a super bowl when the Nole missed the entire season. Cam was player of the year. With the Nole...the Panthers were 19-22....without the Nole 23-3. Good receiver but slow and typically out of shape. Good riddance.

          Pretty sure he can’t read.

          I’m no Newton fan, but this is like hearing the ayatollahs bash ISIS.

            He was a bad fit. The Panthers dont dink and dunk. They throw it downfield. The Nole is not a speedster and doesn’t get much separation. The Panthers needed him to be a possession type receiver but he was often injured or overweight. Cam has never been a precision passer. He is more of an athlete who makes plays. Interesting stat I read. With the Nole on the field Cam threw 20 TD’s and 16 ints. With the Nole nursing an injury he was 35 tds and 9 ints.

            He’s right. He did not fit. He has tremendous talent and if he can get in shape and stay on the field he will be a good receiver in the right system. He’s also right in that he would perform better with a QB with laser accuracy.

            Not defending Cam, but Noles are gonna Nole.

            Sering Cam with Norv Turner instead of that dunce Mike Shula this year will be interesting.

              Funny that he seems thrilled to be out of Carolina, yet he's probably on the worst passing team in the NFL. He mentions Rodgers, Manning, and Big Ben, yet he's looking at catching passes from A.J. McCarron this season, for God's sake. It's going to be a brutal season in Buffalo.

                Again, he can’t read. For all he knows, AJ McCarron might very well be Aaron Rodgers. At this point, he probably just sees letters on a jersey and hopes for the best.

                  Yeah if you are a receiver who needs an accurate QB no matter who that is, you don't go play in Buffalo or Cleveland etc. unless that is your only option.

                    "If I was with one of the top QB's in the league..." :jerkit: I'm surprised he left Brady off that list.

                    Exactly right. I hope this Nole freezes his ass off and gets single digit stats for the year.

                            The Nole was bold from a distance. Quite the chatterbox with the reporter.

                            Confronted face to face he folded.
