Rivera Is “Leaning” Or Lying About Cam Newton

Update: Cam Newton is inactive!

It’s 1 o’clock and it’s still a mystery whether Cam Newton will play against the Buccaneers in three hours. Of course, the Panthers surely know already and are simply playing head games with Lovie Smith and Leslie Frazier, and the oddsmakers in Las Vegas.

But now the head games have reached the company insiders at NFL Network.

The reporter with a pipeline to every NFL general manager, Ian Rapoport, is Twittering this afternoon that the Panthers are leaning “No” on Newton.

Joe’s had about enough of this nonsense. Assuming both quarterbacks are on the field for pregame warmups, Joe will believe in what actually happens when Carolina lines up in their first series of today’s game.

    Jay Glazer also saying Cam is out…

  2. DallasBuc Says:

    Not sure how I feel about this. Bucs have an embarrassing history of letting backup QBs beat them.

  3. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Bucs have an advantage for now with a new coaching staff and unknown new offensive scheme, so Rivera is just pushing back with a little gaming of his own. I honestly don’t blame him.

    DallasBuc, I saw the same thing (Cam out), and had same reservations as your second post. DAMN, get outta my head Bro!!! Lol
    Go Bucs

  6. Walterwhite Says:

    Go bucs

  7. Tom Edrington Says:

    Fox running report that Newton will not play.

    No excuses for Bucs. Must win.

  8. JT Says:

    We will absoulutely destroy Derek Anderson

  9. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Hopefully Newton plays…No excuses Mano E Mano.

  10. lightningbuc Says:

    How close until game time do the inactives have to be turned in?

  11. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I don’t think it will matter which one plays. This game will be 85% defense anyway.

  12. buc4lyfe Says:

    It’s called a game time decision, something every team does. It’s not that’s serous and lovie Smith doesn’t deserve to be head coach if he didn’t game plan for cam

  13. Tampa2ali Says:

    Can u smell that? I can…… I smell pu**y…… The panthers are scared… Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!

  14. bucrightoff Says:

    There is no incentive to lie now seeing as Tampa has undoubtably prepared for Cam all week. No need to prepare for Derek Anderson really.

  15. MGM4Life Says:

    In watching many of our future opponents games today I am leaning more toward a 10 win season for the Bucs. Falcons, Rams, Browns, Bears, Ravens, Redskins all look bad thus far today. More worried about the Saints (week 5) and Steelers(week 4) games than I was before today. GO BUCS!!!!!

  16. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Falcons improved. Can’t believe I’m rooting for them, but I would rather the Saint have the worse record so far as division standings. I KNOW we can beat the Falcons.

  17. CC Says:

    Newton is inactive

  18. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    You see the condition Big Ben is in????

  19. bucrightoff Says:

    Yup, Cam officially inactive.

  20. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Broken ribs. I’d keep him away from Gerald McCoy too. Gerald is likely to break a few of Anderson’s today also.

  21. Matt Says:

    See ya “Superman” Bucs 1-0

  22. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    If Anderson is the play… lets not have a repeat of a couple years ago. When Chad Pennington couldn’t go, and we lost to freakin’ Vinny Testaverde fresh off the couch.

    Annihilate the Panthers!

    GO BUCS!!

  23. Buccfan37 Says:

    Steelers going with no huddle offense. What looked like a blowout has Browns back in it in second half.

  24. Mitch Says:

    Cam newton is out. Anderson’s in. Still excited for football but pissed it won’t be against their best.

  25. Matt Says:

    We now have back to back weeks against back-ups. Time to shine

  26. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Damn! Miami is harassing the sh#t out Brady..lol

  27. bucfan999 Says:

    Joe’s not on the ball today……Cam Newton is inactive and we as readers should not the ones posting it. Come on Joe get on the ball

  28. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Lets Go!

  29. Bird Says:

    Huge advantage Saints and falcons look beatable

  30. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Don’t be so sure, Bird. Falcons just tied the game and they are in overtime.

  31. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    bucfan999, Joe is likely at the game right now.

  32. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    LOL!!!!!! Saints fumbled and Falcons recovered on 30!

  33. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Falcons WIN!

    Hope I never cheer that again!

  34. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Matt Bryant wins it. Our former kicker.

  35. Stanglassman Says:

    Watching ATL game wondering if Bucs fans now understand why you need an experienced clutch kicker. Not a position you want to try to save a few bucks on.
