Everyone in the building felt they had to get wins right away. If Carolina triumphed in Super Bowl 50 they would have a massive hook to hang their hats upon. Newton being a Super Bowl-winning quarterback and the former MVP probably would have rested his injury-related injuries and Madden 23 coins the team wouldn't have felt that they were in situation to have him return to play as quickly, further aggravating the issues.
There's a real possibility victory in the Super Bowl would have led to Newton still being his quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, Dave Gettleman as the GM in addition to Ron Rivera remaining head coach. These ripples would've travelled throughout the league and affected dozens of franchises. Another team is likely to employ Matt Rule who is from Baylor, Teddy Bridgewater could be a starter QB in another city, Washington would have had a new head coach, and there's the possibility that the strength of a Panthers team force the Buccaneers to complete a rebuild, rather than going full-time on Tom Brady in 2020 -and assuming that they've already seen their window at the NFC South closed.
Cam Newton deserved better than his ending with the Panthers Scenario 2: The outcome is exactly the same (mostly).
Let's suppose that winning Super Bowl 50 doesn't fix the organizational problems in the Carolina Panthers. Newton's injuries are still an issue. And while the team's focus remains on winning and the collapse will continue to happen. The team is still facing an entirely different reality particularly in free agency.
At present, Cam Newton is still without madden 23 mut coins a team. It's rare that a 31-year old former MVP-winning quarterback wouldn't find a starting job, particularly in an area where more teams are relying on the old QB talent. The concerns about injuries are real but Super Bowl 50 has lingered over Newton as a stigma, proving that he couldn't take home "the huge one."
