Enjoy The Cam Newton Encore For What It Is

It’s not that Newton is likelier to get the Panthers to the playoffs than any of his predecessors; he probably is, but it certainly doesn’t matter. The football is just what it is, and there’s reason to believe that Newton will deliver a few more moments of brilliance amid the broader twilight ahead. But the bigger, brighter thing to look forward to is the chance for everyone involved to write a new ending for the salty-sour bleeding-out end to his stint as a franchise quarterback.
