I was on board with cam coming in and I know there is a long process to go through before te draft but I'm leaning toward going in another direction. First would be to trade down and if that doesn't work then I'd go with Patrick petersen or AJ Green. Considering Marshall is potentially leaving I'm saying petersen right now.

However, if Gabbert shows well at his workout I wouldn't be against getting him...we still need a franchise QB but this may not be the year we get one.

His coach said he did not "ace" the quiz.

Stupid phrasing if you ask me, considering the red flags and all. OK huggers, excuse time!

Cam is so tempting (I have been calling him fool's gold) because he is a freak of nature and a charismatic leader. But every where you turn, a red flag. They could be nothing, but I am not risking the pick on him. We need a homerun and I don't mind looking for a fastball.

This is why I refuse to sip the Cam Kool Aid, and why those who have the Cam Kool-aid mustache should get some air and be more patient.

also what happened to Cam Newton running sub 4.4 40s or whatever it was? I mean, he's freaking fast for his size but yeah.

Yes! He did poor in the combine! The ONLY TRUE TEST THERE IS! Everything he did at Aubrun was a fluke! He will SUCK ASS in the NFL all because he did poor today! Whooo hoooooooooo!

LOL. Thanks for the fast ball. Are you referring to Florida, the Community College, Auburn, or not cheating on a test? :iagree:

I spoke to Greg Cosell of NFL Films about Newton - Greg is also the Executive Producer of ESPN's NFL Matchup, the legendary X-and-) show that's been going strong since 1984. Greg said that as obvious as the "work-in-progress" label is on Newton, he's doing it the right way.

"I think that when a guy can't do something, and you're teaching him to do it, he always looks exaggerated at first because it's something new. But that's coaching, and I think he's absolutely doing the right thing - he should be doing that stuff as precisely as he can, even f it doesn't look smooth and fluid yet. It will look smooth and fluid, because he's a big-time athlete."

Greg said - and these are observations that are consistent with my own and many others about Newton - that the real issues for him at the NFL level will be mental and schematic. How will he handle it when the throws he made in college aren't open in the NFL? How long will it take him to process things well enough in a multiple-read offense? How closely will his NFL team fit its offense to his skill set, and will that team start him too soon?

A bit more level headed take.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
