Before Cam Newton the Carolina Panthers were struggling to keep their heads above water while the rest of the NFL was passing them by. Cam Newton saved them from perpetual irrelevance with his explosive personality and incredible play.

It started with his rookie season, where he broke the rookie record for passing yards and rushing yards by a quarterback. Then came his 2015 NFL MVP season where he accounted 45 total touchdowns and led the league with four game-winning drives. He took the franchise to a Super Bowl and put the Panthers on the map.

To say he isn't the best player ever in the team's history would be an insult.

Tylt sports editor Dan Tran sits down with The Ringer's Tyler Tynes to breakdown whether Black quarterbacks are treated fairly in the NFL.

No one is saying Cam Newton isn't one of the greatest players ever to put on that Carolina blue, but there are too many other more productive players to say he is THE greatest.

Julius Peppers gave his best years to Carolina, piling up 97 sacks, 107 tackles for loss and five Pro Bowl appearances. Steve Smith was the most dangerous wide receiver in the league with the Panthers, giving the team 12,197 yards and 67 touchdowns in 13 seasons of service. These were the true icons that put the team on the map.

Newton did a lot of the community, but when compared to Peppers and Smith, he doesn't hold a candle to those monsters.
