Those of you comparing Newton to Young, Russell or Akili Smith...

Wayne Newton

I think I have heard of him. He's that black guy who use to have his TV show and was on "who's line is it anyway". I think that is him right :thumbsup:

He's the best dual threat since Mike Vick. My problem is this:

A - You can't have a franchise dual threat QB for 10-15 years. Their bodies break down and they get injured around the playoffs because of the grind of the season.

B - The offense he ran at Auburn was just another simple option-read offense like The Golden Calf of Bristol, Pat White and the rest.

C - Nobody will ever be Mike Vick...and even if he was its not like Vick has any rings.

I would still take Luck and Mallet ahead of him and not think twice about it.

Did you ever see Akili Smith play in college? He was electric. Great athletic ability. Great arm. Problem was he developed his physical skills but couldn't develop his mental skills to adjust to the NFL game. Can Cam?

Every play Akili made started with his legs. He never stood in the pocket. He couldn't read defenses. Couldn't take snaps from under center and still be efficient. Can Cam?

Akili went third overall to the Bengals? Maybe Cam will also.

Did you ever see Tim Couch play in college? He was amazing. A can't-miss prospect. Great arm, incredible accuracy. Could make quick reads, and had good form.

Tim went first overall. Maybe Luck will also.

Newton spent most of the season in the pocket actually, but when he had a running lane he took off because, well, he can. The read option or QB keep is pretty much the only thing you'll have to eliminate from the playbook and if you saw the Alabama game you could see how well he can stand in the pocket and throw. Or maybe the SEC Title game.

Cam is not a system QB. He is a QB in that system. I'll cast my vote for the QB I want after we hire a headcoach
