Hey Ashor, I want Taylor Swift. Wonder how she would transition from the cowgirl to the face down ass up position?

Do not talk about my woman.

Cam Newton's passer rating... The highest in NCAA history at 188.5.

:ee:

How different were his stats from those of The Golden Calf of Bristol's or JaMarcus Russell's? Not at all. In fact, in 2007 The Golden Calf of Bristol had a better passing year in every category than Newton and still had a lower rating so suck it.

Newton is a running back that can throw. The threat of him running the ball is what makes him "good" and that is not what wins Super Bowls.

Not to mention that our franchise rarely if ever drafts quarterbacks and especially in the first round. Clausen fell in our laps in the 2nd round but before that, our highest drafted quarterback was something like Kerry Collins back in 1956.

Against the blitz Newton completed 67.6 percent of his pocket throws for 14 touchdowns and three interceptions.

Newton completed 73.5 percent of his passes last season against the blitz in conference games. He threw five touchdowns and did not throw an interception

the best quarterbacks in the NFL are usually the best at handling the blitz. In 2010, for example, here were the top seven NFL quarterbacks against the blitz based on passer rating:

1. Tom Brady

2. Tony Romo

3. Aaron Rodgers

4. Matt Cassel

5. Josh Freeman

6. Ben Roethlisberger

7. Matt Ryan

Myth 82759237471: Cam Newton Does Not Have a lot of Playing Experience

To say it simply this is true. Newton only has one season of starting experience in D-1 football. But to say that he doesn’t have experience is ridiculous. Newton committed to Florida and got a few snaps in both is freshman and sophomore seasons, but the important thing to understand is that he got experience behind The Golden Calf of Bristol while learning and developing.

He transferred to Blinn Junior College for his RS Sophomore season where he threw for 2,833 yards and 22 TD’s while leading his team to the NJCAA Championship. He would transfer to Auburn University where he played and won 14-games on an SEC schedule in route to the NCAA Championship with 2,854 passing yards, 30 touchdowns, a 66% completion rate, 10.2 YPA and only 7 interceptions. To say that he doesn’t have experience isn’t fair. Blaine Gabbert, Jake Locker, and Sam Bradford all had two real actual full seasons (Locker a little more), and Newton won two different championships in his time.

Myth 203294823420: Cam Newton Isn’t Accurate

This is one of the harder bits to swallow. Jake Locker isn’t accurate, Blaine Gabbert isn’t accurate (given the short routes he ran), but Newton is accurate. Newton can hit any throw in the world, and he has a very good short and intermediate accuracy, and his deep accuracy is decent. With a 66% completion rate in 2010 it is completely unfair to say that he isn’t accurate. He also only threw seven interceptions this season, so to say that his passes are throw sloppily also isn’t fair given that his decision making skills are fairly solid.

Myth 5320498230420: Cam Newton Played in a Goofy Offense

This is such a dumb argument. Sam Bradford, The Golden Calf of Bristol, Blaine Gabbert, and Colt McCoy all played in the spread. Late rising QB Colin Kaepernick played in about the goofiest offense in football. Ryan Mallett played in an offense where it seemed like 2/3 of his throws were on a bootleg. Jake Locker started in the spread offense and might not be 100% out of it. The fact is that in today’s day and age there are more quarterbacks from the spread, and teams know how to sort through it.

Myth 6092384023840248: His mobility Means Nothing for the Pro Game

This is half true. Newton cannot expect to run for 16 touchdowns each year, and nobody will. He is a great runner and he can make moves, and he will be expected to makes moves when he can or when he needs to. He has a top notch pocket presence and he needs to find out how to properly use it in the NFL.

When you look at Cam Newton on paper you may see just a very athletic quarterback without much experience who has some flaws that won’t let his succeed. I personally see all of his flaws are either over-criticisms or issues that have been blown out of proportion. Newton has the most potential in a QB that we have possibly ever seen and he has the confidence and winning potential that teams love. Some will see him as a criminal, as an athlete, or as the next Vince Young, but I see him as his own prospect. Newton right now is a cleaner quarterback than The Golden Calf of Bristol, Vince Young, or JaMarcus Russell ever have been, and I love him as a prospect in this draft.

Steve Young?? John Elway?? Aaron Rodgers?? They are good runners no??

Oh wait... this is the part where you tell me he is a better runner than those guys so therefore he is poo and despite his gaudy passing numbers he is the worst passer ever and "raw".

If you said no that means you want to have intercourse with "teh Pickles." However, if you said yes that means you are commited to "Winning" like Charlie Sheen.

If that doens't make you want to vote yes, then I don't know what will.

    • I took it as voth getting defensive on behalf of the media when Gettleman slighted them in his comments. I like voth, but I don't like the attitude I've seen for years that is typical among media/journalists. .."we are owed access to everything and everyone.  Don't you dare turn us down or speak ill about us or we'll make you pay."
    • If y'all want to talk about a legit issue with illegals lets talk about the babies they make here and then the inability to collect child support when they peace out.  Until the Trump goes after the business that employee them, it's all pious claptrap.
    • I'm very familiar with the passage and the events that brought about His answer. Yes, the response was savvy, but He also didn't lie. There's another important passage about a widow donating her last two coins while the rich man donated more, but less, too. I'm sure you can massage that to nuance something to assuage your soul, but really, when it comes down to it all, there are some folks on the Conservative side that preach long and hard about following Jesus. The problem is that when they get to the part about taking care of the sick, the poor, the incarcerated and the downtrodden, they suddenly have a host of excuses and want to start parsing the wording so that they don't have to look at themselves and say, "Man, I'm supposed to be there for the less fortunate, but nah, not really. I mean, yeah, Salvation and all, but now we're talking about my hard-earned money." They always want the New Testament's forgiveness to apply to themselves, and they delight in the Old Testament being visited upon other folks. Outside of religion, they're also the ones who think it's a crying shame that "those people" don't have the means to fix themselves and then shake it off with the rationalization that those folks probably got themselves into that mess in the first place. We're all guilty of that to some degree, sadly, myself included.
