Cam Newton vs Tim Tebow Part II on Aug 26

The NFL preseason schedule was just announced for every NFL team and included was a whopper of a game for the Carolina Panthers, who play on the road against the New York Jets on Sunday, Aug.26th at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Yes, national TV, and Cam Newton vs. Tim Tebow. The two were briefly teammates at Florida, remember, where Newton was a mostly unknown backup and Tebow was the Heisman Trophy winner. Newton would later transfer to Auburn and win his own Heisman, and now Tebow has been traded to the New York Jets to back up Mark Sanchez.

The cool thing about this game is it's the third one on the schedule, which is traditionally the exhibition game in which NFL teams play their starters the most. So we'll see a lot of Cam and a fair amount of Tebow in that one, although Sanchez is still clearly the Jets' starter (for now). And we get the entertaining Jets coach Rex Ryan as a side dish.

Of the Panthers' four preseason games -- and the regular season schedule has not been announced yet -- only the Jets one has a specific day and time. The rest will officially be announced later. The full Panther preseason schedule is:

HOUSTON AT CAROLINA -- Somewhere from Aug.9-13... The Texans defense will give the Panthers' offense a good early test

MIAMI AT CAROLINA -- Somewhere from Aug.16-20....

CAROLINA AT N.Y. JETS -- Sunday, Aug.26th, 8 p.m., NBC national telecast

CAROLINA AT PITTSBURGH -- Either Aug.29 or Aug.30th (likely the 30th to give the Panthers a little more turnaround time)

We do know the Panthers will open the regular season on the road on Sept.9th or Sept.10th because of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte a few days before opening weekend.

There is NO WAY Tebow starts ahead of Garcia. Not a single chance. What an idiotic statement!

I hope Tebow doesn't start ahead of Garcia. Sanchez, possibly. But it won't be Tebow vs. Newton. Cam will play one series and be done.

I think Smitty vs Revis is the matchup we should be talking about.

What are all y'all on?

FACT: The third preseason game is when just about every team plays their starters until partway through the fourth quarter.

FACT: Cam Newton did not receive any money for his college committment, and the NCAA has stated on 3 separate occasions that he was innocent.

FACT: Cam's daddy didn't even get any money. He just asked for it from Misipi State, who truned him down, then turned him in.

FACT: The Saints are guilty of offering money to their players in exchange for a purposeful attempt to end the careers of several opponents, including Cam Newton.

Now, for my opinion. Cam and the Panthers offense will drop 30 on Rexie's fat arrse before the backups get in during the third quarter.

Idiots in the first two comments that I read only make me realize why I rarely do read these comments...

• It's Sanchez, not Garcia!

• Cam will play 2 or 3 Quarters in the 3rd preseason game... it's the 3rd preseason game!!! They try a little in that one as a final tuneup for the regular season. Week 4 of the preseason will see maybe 1 series, if that.

Lets get a few things rite here
Tebow although a class act is NOT a NFL QB he cant throw the football and he cant run a prostyle offense. Cam is a NFL QB he has proven that he can throw the football and learn to make the rite reads in a prostyle offense, and whoever is a sints fan out there get over the fact that your team cheated bc Vilma probably wont ever play agian and your team is nothing if ypou cant secure Brees long term.
