Mr. Scot

QB Camp: Newton

Recommended Posts

There's a lot of things I'd let Manning do. He's earned it.

Manning is capable of calling his own play on the field too. Since he can do it, should we let Cam do it?

At Auburn... sure.

:banghead:

And that what makes me more comfortable with Cam.

Cam and Pete Carrol? No way.

Cam and Fox? Eh, dont like it.

Cam and Rivera? I think Cam will know his place.

I agree

I said similar things about Shockey.

Shockey with John Fox as coach? Recipe for disaster.

Shockey with Rivera in charge? Not worried.

Rivera being able to handle Newton's ego isn't an item that appears on my Worry List.

Doesn't mean I'm on board that he's the right choice at #1 though.

so you're totally okay with a guy who has only spent 6 weeks in the offense at a point where he is "comfortable enough" with the playbook to execute the offense as it was meant to be calling his own audibles... and by that we mean trying to QB sneak without anyone else on his team seeming to know that was his plan?

I mean I just am not set with his explanation but if his coaches were cool with it, that's fine. They know better than I do. I still don't have to like it.

Why are we comparing Newton to Manning?

Manning can do anything he wants. He's his own OC. If Newton reaches that point, fine, but the reality is that certain players can do certain things because they've earned the right. It sounds like to Auburn, he had earned that right. Doesn't mean that I have to like that he did it.

When you're about to enter the NFL, you don't really want to make it sound like you think you have better judgment than your college coach. But it sounds like it was a minor thing and not a big deal... so I doubt the teams care much.

Doesn't mean *I* have to like his answer.

I am just saying, real competitors want the ball in their hands at the end of the game, and those are the guys I want on my team.

Brings me back to my original point. It doesn't matter what I think. Chizik didn't mind and actually defended the play. So why should I care??

I understand, but I'd like them to also make smart decisions and also realize that at times the coaches DO know right.

I never said you should care. I said I care. If you don't care, that doesn't bother me at all. All I said was I didn't like his answer. I didn't say "AND TEERAY YOU SHOULDN'T EITHER!!!"

Why compare Cam to PeyPey? He's a Big Ben clone if things turn out right.

If he ever had the brains/accuracy anywhere close to Manning he'd be the greatest player the NFL has ever seen.

What you just described I have no problem with.

A guy disobeying a coaches order? Not so good.

What you have to hope is that he doesn't have the brains of Roethlisberger.

What were Chizik's orders?? Can you confirm that he didn't tell him "if you see something you like go ahead and score."?

If that had been the situation, there never would have been a story in the first place.

Chizik has never said "I gave him permission to freelance".
