are afraid of taking chances in life. They are probably stuck in middle management...if they made it that far. Stuck in a no a where job. They don't dream. They are afraid of greatness. Their wives hate them and their kids don't look up to them.

...and people that take foolish chances don't even make it to middle management, they're living in a van down by the river.

they are the type people who are content w/ Jimmy Clausen sucking it up another year. My little boy is only a couple weeks old but if I told him Jimmy Clausen should have "another go" he would do one of those crane kicks from the Karate Kid and kick me in the balls. I don't know how the little sack of potatoes would perform such an advanced move but he would. Needless to say, would support Cam coming to Carolina!!

Difficult to work out if this is serious or not...

There are risks and then there are calculated risks. Those people that you claim that have achieved greatness through constant risk taking, are either very lucky or very calculated with the risks they take.

Is Newton a complete gamble, or are the odds on his side? History suggests his style of playing won't produce long term success, however the recent shift to mobile QBs is in his favor.

Unfortunately I don't see him as a mobile QB, once he takes his eyes from down the field he is only trying to do one thing. The great mobile QBs buy time with their legs and then throw. Cam buys time to create a running lane.

It's easy when you're at the bottom of the totem pole to tell people at the top that they should take risks, when those at the bottom already have nothing to lose, maybe just a couple of corn crops.

How many guys that want Cam saying we should take these risks are actually at the top of whatever it is they do.... besides collecting unemployment checks.
