SBNation.com editor Andrew Sharp tries to find Cam a nickname in his NFL Picks: Week 5

(Under NO at Car pick) We talked on Tuesday about Cam Newton's nickname, and here are a few suggestions: Panthro (via Ethan Rothstein) Black Jesus (via @chrisbruyere) Killa Cam Camtastic Moneybags Big Fig (via @RoochNation) Black Panther The World's Most Expensive Fig Newton or, forever his nickname in SEC circles, $CAM (via 50 different people on Facebook). Personally, I'm not sure. Reader Greg Wissinger pointed out that "Cam" is itself a great nickname, and he's right. That's probably too perfect to be ever be topped. But "Panthro" is pretty fantastic as a Superhero-type name, and it'd also be pretty great to have an athlete we could call "Moneybags". Unfortunately "Black Panther" probably sends the wrong message. This isn't over, though. For now, it's too early to make a definitive call except to agree that whenever Cam Newton does something incredible, it's "Camtastic." (And what did we learn? Coming up with nicknames is harder than it sounds.)
