The Drive Monday 8-12-13 – Former Panthers GM Bill Polian talks with Marc James of The Drive about the Panthers first preseason game. They get into Cam Newton’s third year and what the expectations are, if Luke Kuechly is the best middle linebacker in the league, and where he sees the Panthers ending up when all is said and done this season.
Bill Polian checks in with The Drive as we preview the Panthers season. We start by asking him why he thinks Cam Newton hasn’t hadthe winning numbers that other young quarterbacks have had.
“Cam only played one year of college football and that’s a pretty good road to hoe when you have very little experience”
With the receiving corps looking for help we ask the former G.M. who he thinks will be stepping up this year.
“Cam’s got three great running backs to run the ball, and Greg Olsen at tight end. We’ll see what happens in training camp”
With Ron Rivera on the hot seat as head coach does he think the Panthers will turn things around to help the coach.
“The bottom line is getting to the playoffs…Gettleman knows this game is about its not about today or next week but the whole season.
The Panthers play their second preseason game on Thursday Aug 15th at 7:30 in Philadelphia.
