Carolina Should Deal Derek Anderson to Buffalo

Carolina Should Deal Derek Anderson to Buffalo

We’ve heard endlessly from Cam haters that Derek Anderson is the efficient pocket passer who plays well enough to win. In the time the Anderson saw while Cam was injured la, he played better than Josh McCown did in Tampa and comparable to Sam Bradford in St. Louis.  Anderson is a better option than the former and a cheaper, more reliable option than latter.

Who Would You Start vs. Browns: Cam or DA?

The Playoffs are on the line this Sunday vs. the Browns.  This is a must win, people!  With it all on the line, who are you rolling with and why?  Here's a case for each:

  • DA threw for 277 yards last week and is 2-0.  He had great chemistry with Olson and Benjamin.  And don't forget his extra motivation for playing the Browns.
  • Now for Cam:  If he plays like he did two weeks ago vs the Aint's, he gives us the best chance to win.  His mobility and the simple threat of him running diversifies our Offense so much more that having DA back there.  But if he takes a shot to that back, could there be long term implications??

If the call were up to you, who are you rolling with?  And why?  Leave your comments below and I'll tweet them out.

With Cam Newton likely missing Sunday's game, some fringe Panthers fans get what they wished for, Derek Anderson.  Will he get it done Sunday or will be be a QB on a Shelf?

Carolina Panthers’ Derek Anderson Vents about Prick Cop on Twitter

“I’m so salty” Derek Anderson said after being ticketed for what looks to be too dark of window tint.  It broke with this tweet by the Panthers backup quarterback:

Anderson’s comments were quickly noticed by Panther fans who were either cops themselves or worked within the realm of law enforcement or the military. 

Things looked to lighten as Anderson backtracked a bit, complimenting Charlotte PD for being cool enough to let people run red lights without penalty (still wonder how I feel about this as being cool) and deferring to the military as a topic above reproach.  I mean everyone has limits right?

If it wasn’t intended lighten the mood, Jimmy “joke” Clausen chimed in, stating that he had been annoyed by petty tickets lately and didn’t plan on paying his most recent traffic ticket.  This is when I laughed aloud.  I guess the backups tend to stick together. 

I mean, Clausen is the guy who used to tweet pics of himself at Colorado ski resorts and at his insanely luxurious California family home.  There’s a real disconnect here.  A guy who comes from a well to do back ground and got paid to go away in Carolina is pissed that he has to pay traffic fines that frankly we all get perturbed about.  But seriously, who can just not pay traffic tickets?  Panthers Armond Smith found it entertaining, tweeting:

Then Clausen took the opportunity to remind public servants that they owed their livelihood to his overpaying of taxes.

Now I’m not really interested in having a conversation about the current state of American taxation, but damn Jimmy, I guess you forgot all that money you took from us Panther fans to well, not be good.  Until this point, I didn’t say anything about that $110 bucks I dropped to watch Carolina get pummeled by 30 points in 2010. Maybe you can send me a ten spot back for that one, since you collected the revenues directly like this cop collects the fine from you ticket directly.  It doesn’t work that way?

Things looked to be fizzling out at this point, but Anderson fired back at some fans who were critical of his public “saltiness.” He defended his right to be upset and to voice his criticism of the occurrence.

This isn’t really all that big of a deal.  I found it entertaining more than anything.  I was surprised it carried on as long as it did, and I am always stunned when I see ole Jimmy Clausen.  I find Clausen complaining about anything a little lame.  Not picking up the ticket, well that’s just spoiled Jimmy. 

One fan really sought to lighten the whole mood of this incident stating: 

Bud, hate to tell you, Derek Anderson isn’t going to get anyone a Super Bowl.  Cam will though!
