While guys like Tom Brady and Drew Brees were terrible. So before you count Cam out at #1, let's remember to keep things in perspective here:

JaMarcus Russell combine article: http://sports.espn.g...john&id=2777414 (Russell makes a big impression)

Alex Smith combine/workout article: http://sports.yahoo....cr-proday031605 (Smith's performance is only the latest in what has become consistent – and predictable – leapfrogging since the NFL's February combine in Indianapolis last month)

Tom Brady combine article: http://www.nytimes.c...ll/03draft.html (Mentions how underwhelming Brady was at the combine and how explosive some guy named Giovanni Carmazzi was and how he leaped up people's boards after his combine)

Drew Brees combine article:
http://sportsillustr...419/6/index.htm (Mentions how Brees completed 11/20 passes similar to how Newton completed 11/21)

You have actual NFL players all over Twitter today commenting on how unimportant the combine really is. So please people, before you bury Cam, let's keep things in perspective.

And remember how many you complete is actually not important.

He sailed a couple big time no doubt. But he had good throws on both the go routes (especially he was 0-3 but all three were good throws) and at least two on the out routes that were either dropped or good passes and the receiver didn't get there.

if the first casualty of war is the truth, then the first casualty of the NFL offseason is perspective.

Funny. Up to now I saw a lot of people talking about how important the combine was. Now suddenly it isn't.

Wonder why :rolleyes:

The next argument will probably be that pro days mean more than the combine does.

(unless Newton has a bad one; then they'll mean nothing)
