Cam gets defensive in an interview

Wasn't his press conference it was his "private" team interview.

I will only say two things and then let the anti-Cam guys have fun with this.

Without context this is hard to take seriously.

Let me ask you this. How many times has your wife accused you of being defensive when you really weren't?? Happens to me almost every day.

Without context hard to know what to make of this report.

The second thing is whoever the "source" is, is an a-hole. If you were in the room you do not take this to the press without an agenda IMO. Otherwise what is the sources motivation?? He would have none except to hurt Cam.

We have been talking a lot about smoke screens lately. How do we not know that this was the Cardinals trying to manipulate the draft to get Cam to slide to 5??? Why not?? Who knows??

Take this with a grain of salt would be my advice.

Thank you..... and another great post by Teeray.

Not sure what to make of this, if it was true then it would make me sour on Cam quite a bit... but I'm weary of stuff like this around combine/draft time, could just as easily be someone trying to scare other teams away from drafting him.

Winning puts butts in the seat, people wouldn't show up to see Cam ride the pine for 2-3 years while he learns to play QB in the NFL.

Give me someone who has a chance of starting day one.

Just how exactly do you figure Cam would "ride the pine for 2-3 years"? Is Jimmy Clausen/Tony Pike/Matt Moore going to beat him out in training camp year after year?

At this point Clausen would benefit the same if not more than Newton by sitting on the bench behind him. There are no FA QBs that are going to be able to keep up with the high octane offenses of the NFC South and NFC.

Cam Newton would dwarf Clausen in OTAs and TC and very well could be starting from day one. Imagine Jimmy being able to pick up chunks of yardage outside the pocket when his line broke down last year? Cam has more than an arm he can move the chains with (and I'm not even sure Clausen has an arm).

If this makes you sour on Cam then then the source achieved his agenda..this sounds like something Mike Shanahan would do..wonder if there was a lie detector test involved.

Vet FA is how.

Cam can't take a snap from under center yet, Moore and Clausen are significantly ahead of Cam, like it or not.

Keep in mind he has pointed to that year as the turning point in his life. he admits to making mistakes at Florida and claims he has decided to better his life because of them.

hell maurice clarett is avalible, lets give him a shot too. he says he has cleaned up now and admits to all his mistakes to boot....

The one problem with the whole "well he wasn't really getting defensive thing" is that Cam Newton has basically admitted that he did get defensive and that teams came at him from a variety of angles.

Nobody is perfect, though. Just because he got defensive does not mean that he failed in his interviews, nor does it mean that he did it in an interview with us (which is the most important for his stock as #1 IMO).

I may have missed it but he said teams "keep you on your toes". FWIW. Still don't know who would run to the press to leak this info and what their motivation would be :skep:

I feel confident that we'll pick a D-Lineman with the #1 pick but perhaps Cam Newton is worth the gamble. The kid accounted for FIFTY!!! 5x10...50 touchdowns last year. And a lot of those were against some nasty SEC defenses. How many did Clausen get? 3?

I don't know. Cam seems like a high risk for #1 since you usually want your #1 picks to be ready to go on day one, but maybe his raw talent is worth it. He just knows how to find that damn endzone. I can't wait to see him at that combine tomorrow. He had some issues with accuracy on shorter passes during the season, but that got better over the year. He was pretty good on the deep balls all year long though. His running and ability to shake tacklers is best in show this year.

I just need to see this guy get a little more mature before the start of the NFL season... which by looking at labor debate could be awhile.
