    Will Cam Newton's injury affects Carolina Panthers' preseason games?

      I have never understood this argument. The same injuries that can happen in a preseason game can happen in the 1st game of the regular season.

      No. There's only one preseason game left and the starters weren't gonna play anyway.

        What I hate worse than preseason, people who think things should be changed to suit their needs. These games do matter, just dont play people you know who will be on the team.

          How many major starters and stars got hurt this preseason? Not many. Maybe Cam's playing style got him into trouble just like every other running quarterback.

              James Harrison was so brutal that I assumed he was dumb, but the dude is highly intelligent. That means that he fully understood that he would get fined before he KNOCKED MFS OUT. Scary to think a man that aggressive is also analyzing the most effective way to destroy you.

                    Did Cam need shoulder surgery because of preseason? No. Should the NFL stop training camp because players get hurt during training camp? No! What ever will be will be.

                        In order to eliminate the preseason it first has to start with the draft. The NFL draft will have to be decreased to 3 rounds only. This will do 1 of two things increase the amount that rookies get paid or decrease the amount they get paid because of the unknown. With this rookie contracts will be lengthen with increase or shortened with decrease. Their Will be no preseason to evaluate talent in a game simulation. Also this will make the players who play in the NFL considered more elite.
                        The Arena league could be used as a minor league type system to where players can be shifted up to the NFL as need by team. Also games Area games could be played on Tuesdays/ Wednesdays so players cold be eligible to play Sunday/Monday the next week. This. Would also create mor revenue for the league and team. Anyways just a thought.

                          Red shirting the qb in preseason is a fantastic idea! You dont learn anything more by hitting the guy. As a defensive coach you saw that your guy made it to the qb, good enough. As an offensive guy you are evaluating a qb on his reads and accuracy and leadership, if he happens to be really adept at escaping a sack here and there that's just icing anyways.
                          If you think that wont work because its just "touch" football, have you watched the probowl?! They essentially play touch in the pro bowl which is way more extreme than just red shirt the QB.
                          Red shirt them and don't allow them to run, and minimize the time you play your starting rb and wr and top skill players.
                          If you want to shake the rust off for your for sure starters, they dont need much time.
                          2 games is perfect, it gives you time to evaluate your rookies and late draft picks and find the diamonds in the rough.

                            I wouldn’t get rid of the pre season. Ron just needs to get fired. He doesn’t respect cam we went years without a top 5 offense of line still to this day

                                  James Harrison won this debate. He killed it on this issue. You cant stop the preseason games. That would be the end of the NFL as we know it.

                                    If Trent Green hadn't gotten hurt in the 1999 preseason we would have never known how good Kurt Warner was. Sometimes it works out that way.

We need Atleast three games to see if anyone who ain't a starter is any good or not. And w 17 regular season games u will either have a winning record or losing record.

Some people or race always cry and it's never good enough. While the rest of the other players follow policy and team rules. Theres certain individuals or race always gotta cry about everything. Preseason are for other players to make the team. Just another opportunity for those who need additional help to get that opportunity.
