Cam Newton’s Truck Crashed In Charlotte

December 9th, 2014

cam newton 0904Joe has already heard from heartless Bucs fans who are distressed by this afternoon’s news of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton flipping his truck a few times.

These meanies are troubled that Newton might miss Sunday’s game in Charlotte and hurt the Bucs’ chances of losing all their games and scoring the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

What’s wrong with you heartless people?

First, Newton seems to be OK, per a report. Of course, Joe wishes no pain for Bucs opponents off the football field.

Second, Joe’s not sure why anyone would think Newton is a key to victory. Carolina already carved up the Bucs on opening day with backup QB Derek Anderson, the fourth best QB in the NFC South.

Regardless, Joe wishes Newton well. But Joe is not confident Newton will play Sunday. Car accidents like that commonly deliver serious pain and discomfort in the days immediately following the crash.

    I’m glad Newton is OK. I would not want to lose to Derek Anderson twice in one season.

  2. HawaiianBuc Says:

    Football should be the furthest from anyone’s mind in a situation like this. I wish Cam all the best.

    It was hard not giving Karma a reason to shat on me when I heard this news

    I’ve been a Bucs fan long enough to know that they are going to screw up and win one of these last three games.

    I was a passenger in a truck that rolled, it was a helluva journey down a mountainside of all things. Walked out of it unscathed. My uncle was driving drunk up a mountain road in the snow when he swerved into oncoming traffic. He realized what he did so he pulled the wheel hard to the right, we skidded out of control and down the mountain we went.

    me too, unless it’s Ndamkong Suh.

  7. Pickgrin Says:

    It has not yet been confirmed whether Cam was injured or not. One witness said Cam was “Alert and in pain”.

    a different on the scene news dude tweeted – ” CMPD source says no injuries to Cam Newton.He did not want to be transported. Taken to hospital as a precaution.”

    Hope he is OK.

    His truck flipped 4 times and looks pretty caved in on top so I’m glad he was obviously smart enough to have his seatbelt on…

    Newton who? I just heard a promo ad by the Big Dog. He said something about MG and the mob might get to see MG play again. He did’nt even call him Opie. Is Lovie going that way, I have’nt heard it.

  9. bucrightoff Says:

    He was flashing a smile in pictures after the crash. Sounds like he’s fine. Frankly I’m more scared of Derek Anderson at this point.

  10. Jeagan1999 Says:

    1. Hope Cam is OK.
    2. Don’t think it matters if he plays or not….Derek Anderson is more than capable of beating the Bucs…in fact, I think he already did.
    3. Unless something really goofy happens in the next few weeks…I think Tampa owns the #1 overall pick. Let’s face it, if we are going to be this bad, we might as well get something for it!

  11. Greg Says:

    I’m with James in Dunedin, the Bucs will find a way to screw up having the #1 pick in next year’s draft by winning one or two more games, there’s no way they’ll lose out the rest of this season!

  12. No One Says:

    Panthers will still win easily with or without Newton. Ron Rivera’s probably thinking “We survived without him, so maybe he should sit out next Sunday.”

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I choose to root for the Bucs…..Jets, Jags, Raiders & Titans…..

    That way we can keep our pick but still win…….

  14. pick6 Says:

    @EDS = Bearded Turd, you currently have my favorite screen name on that is all.

  15. Mac Says:

    This just went up on Twitter. Say hello to Derek Anderson.

    Panthers say Cam Newton has two transverse fractures in his lower back, but no other significant injuries

  16. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Great, we always play worse against back up qbs.

  17. DallasBuc Says:

    Consider me a meanie if you want for acknowledging that the Bucs have better chance of winning Sunday with Newton out. Derek Anderson barely beat us week 1. Cam demolished NO 3 days ago. Everyone is so damn sensitive.

  18. brett Says:

    well joe , I’m going to point the finger right back at you. what kind of “fan” would want us to lose out on the opportunity to draft a franchise qb. (something , in my almost 40 years of being a buc fan , I’ve never seen.) to try and win 3 meaningless games at the end of another horrible season.your probably the type of guy(s) that would elect not to remove an inflammed appendix and hope it doesn’t rupture and kill you.cut to cure joes ! cut to cure!

  19. 77 bassguitarist Says:

    @ Dallasbuc I’m with you bro, everyone wears panties these
    Days! I need cam to play! Here’s to the #1 pick!

  20. K1ngadroc Says:

    I hope he’s ok. You’re a douche if you feel any different.

  21. Espo Says:

    I think it would be foolish of him to pay Sunday, or be allowed to play. Of course I’m no doctor, but this is more serious than a game.

  22. BucBob1 Says:

    Hope Cam is Okay. He probably got out of the truck, and thought he’d just been tackled, and was looking for the huddle.

  23. Luther Says:

    I don’t feel sorry for Cam. The guy strikes me as a selfish brat. I watched him on the sideline during the first game and he validated everything I ever thought about him. I only wished he was ok so the Bucs wouldn’t screw up their draft pick.

  24. Paul Says:

    Hurt our chances? Don’t you remember Derek Anderson lighting us up first game!?!

  25. Sam Says:

    here is the article from PFT

  26. BigMacAttack Says:

    Joe, I see what you did there.

  27. Dave Pear Says:

    Exactly. Joe is saying we have the Fifth best QB in the NFC South.

    James in Dunedin said: “I’ve been a Bucs fan long enough to know that they are going to screw up and win one of these last three games.”

    Of course James you can count on the Bucs shocking someone if not Carolina then likely the Aints….. I have been saying that ever since everyone has been going “Winston Wolf” on this site since Oakland won. Anyhow, if Tennessee loses to the Jets (possible, the Jets actually a pickem to 1 point fave in Nashville) then you can throw the Jets 3-11 record in with their overall and I think they sail past the Bucs for weakest strength of schedule anyways as they are only a game off the Bucs anyhow and the Bucs factor in a 5-8-1 Carolina mark when/if Derek Anderson gets W #2 against Tampa. Heck the Titans are tanking it worse then the Bucs as they let the Giants end a 7 game losing streak 36-7 in Nashville…. But it does suck when anyone rolls a car like I seen in the BSPN videos, don’t get people who get their rocks off when someone gets injured and don’t get the people all upset about the Bucs actually having a chance to win this week(do they? Christ they gagged in week 1, why not week 14?), relax the Bucs will pick in the top 3 this year even if they get a lucky W…….

    “relax the Bucs will pick in the top 3 this year even if they get a lucky W…….”

    Top 6 – yes – top 3? highly unlikely if the Bucs win a game. Both QBs will be gone by the 3rd or 4th pick at latest. They may well go 1-2.

  30. Fort Myers Dave Says:

    Pickgrin I think the Bucs still win most tie break scenarios except for Tennessee as the Titans still play the Jets and Jags which should sag their strength of schedule pretty low if it is calculated week to week as I think it is (like right now it is calculated by adding the record of teams already played not including the future games…), of course the Titans could win also, better chance for them than the Bucs thats for sure.. I don’t think 3-13 would drop Tampa to 6 as Tampa would still hold tiebreakers with the Jags, Jets, Deadskins and Raiders as I think the other 2 win teams could win as well… Of course Tampa could rip 2 wins off and that 4-12 would put them in the 6th or 7th overall area. Unlikely but as James put it: if it could screw the Bucs up they would do it and a W seems right up that alley….

  31. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard think that the Pathers, Packers and Saints will do the job.
    If we win one of those games it’s a conspiracy.
    We need to give L&L the chance to put weeks into the
    Mariotts-Winston decision before the bell rings.
    Sit McCoy, Evans and David! Start McCown!
    Lets do this!

  32. Fort Myers Dave Says:

    Howard, talking about conspiracies: I am just glad the draft order is decided by strength of schedule. Could you imagine if the 5 current 2 win teams had to have the commish draw envelopes to determine the order like the NBA did back in ’85 when Stern drew the refrigerated envelope???? Man you know if there was such a lottery I would bet money the Jets would somehow get the winning envelope, guaranteed. It would make for great TV drama though, BSPN and the NFL Network would make a 2 hour specials about the drawing going over how inept all 5 teams are…. But that won’t happen. The Bucs will go 2-14 and pick 1st or 2nd (go Titans) or 3-13 and slip to no lower than 3rd or 4th IMHO… People wanting the 1st better pull for New Orleans too, if they lose to the ATL and Bears they probably will tank it here to end the season…..

  33. Dr T Says:

    Being a realist I want the top pick in the draft. Being a Bucs fan I hope they lose the next three games due to stupid mistakes instead of just getting nuked.

    Watched Michael “ghost” Johnson a lot recently. This guy dogs it so much he makes Mike Williams and Michael Clayton look like they had Jerry Rice’s work habits.

  34. 87ForJameisOrMariota Says:

    Nah…stop worrying people. The Bucs are going 2-14 just like I said in October.

    No worries.

  35. Jerry Says:

    I think the Bucs win the Saints game at the end of the year. If Carolina beats the Bucs this weekend, the Saints will likely be out of the playoff race by that week 17 game. So that game will be meaningless to both teams. The Saints are garbage on the road anyway. Their defense is a disaster. And the Bucs will want to prevent going winless at home.

  36. Oahubuc Says:

    Why would anyone think it makes a difference? The question is, what obscure NFL or franchise record will the Panthers set against us? What new depths can our offense sink to? Will I even make it through the 2nd quarter before I switch to an actual football game?
