Smith has shown he can surprise, plus he's at home versus shaky Titans D.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Cam is banged up and the Bucs aren't slouches but he's still too explosive to count out here.

Newton is a game-time decision. Even if he plays, your backup QB is probably a better option this week.

- Austin Lee, FootballGuys

 
*Falling Star* - It is looking more likely that Newton will sit Week 1. If he does, his replacement will be Derek Anderson. Either way, the fragility of the decision making warrants a DO-NOT-START for CN. If he does start there is still a great chance he is pulled if the game gets out of hand or he is hit hard. Not worth the risk.

Playing a revitalized D, Newton will wear flak jacket.
