A few years ago on a Sunday just like this one, we posted a photo of Cam Newton preparing to play in the biggest game of his life.
A lot has changed since then. Cam is one of, if not the top star in the NFL today. The Panthers have grown up. They are no longer climbing the mountain. They have reached the zenith, and it’s time for them to take the next step. It can go one of two ways today: they can win the game and go on to write the story the way it was meant to be written in NFL lore and history or they can fall short of making a few plays and we can go on to wonder forever what might have been.
If they win today, they are the team that forever goes down as the team that delivered the knockout blow to the Seattle Seahawks and their run of getting to Super Bowls.
I couldn’t love a football player more than I do Cam Newton. He’s always been my guy. I hope he goes out today and plays an error free game that will be remembered forever. I want him to make this one count.
It’s their time.
