So, to get this straight, you think he HAS improved, but he was already great so he didn't need to improve much? Ok, fine, whatever. You can think whatever you want. But when Cam goes to a guy like Whitfield, and his coach says that he's seen such dramatic improvement he wants to show it off, I take that to mean that he actually saw something dramatic, and that Cam actually did have to work at it.
Anytime any athlete trains, you're going to see improvement. Doesn't mean he had BAD footwork before, which has been a big criticism of him on this board (I think you've said it a few times too).
As to me backpedaling, you just interpret anyone who disagrees with you as a Newton hater, which is silly. I don't hate him, I just have questions about him. I don't know how much his footwork actually improved, but I'll take the words of people who saw the entire thing and say he did (Warren Moon).
Every thread that's come up about him, you're in the mix downplaying or refuting positives about him. In fact, if you're saying your take on him has been neutral I'd point out that you haven't given him but a sliver of praise compared to your mountains of negatives on him.
As far as people being called haters... well... I like to call a horse a horse. If there's as much upside to him as I've seen, and now others are seeing too, dissing him is just being a hating ass.
I just am not super impressed by a workout, that's all. Maybe if I'd been there, I would have been. I'm less interested with Dilfer's drooling than I was with Warren Moon's comments, which actually had some specifics in them.
Who knows... maybe you'll come around then...
