The "Get To Know Cam Newton" Thread

If a DB like Deangelo Hall or someone Munnerlyn's size gets in his way it might be Deja Vu. just sayin' he is 6'6 2damn50:auto:

Exactly of course we want him to be a balanced dual threat like a 2011 season Vick for example but I am not to worried about what Mad Hatter stated.

Cam will be on Mike & Mike at 8:45am Today.

Yeah I just watched it on my DVR.

I know that several of the highlights posted were of Cam running over and through defensive players.

I hope that I NEVER see him try this in the NFL. With the hitting that happens out there, if he tries those moves it will be a very short time before they are carrying him off the field.

I want to see him use his legs as a weapon. However, I hope that Shula teaches him the art of sliding and getting out of bounds.

yep.. I'm looking for him to escape pressure when needed, not go Vick on everyone.

Vick won't last 3 years if he feels like he did at the end of this past season.

Vick is also 6"0 215 I am just saying on draft day all we heard was how Cam was bigger or the same size as some of the defensive players that attended the draft. I don't think it'll be a huge problem with him trucking players/staying healthy (he's not superman but c'mon) at the pro level we will see though.

LBs in the NFCS aren't all that big anyways. i don't think he'll have a whole lot of problem with them when he runs. it won't be easy for him, but he sure won't make it easy for them. not one of them are going to be looking forward to dealing with him. i can see defensive players being as excited about facing him as they were brandon jacobs. get some momentum behind a guy that size and you get in the way and you've got a concussion coming your way.

Two college championships, two injuries that limited him in both games... but I don't think he'll run anywhere near as much in the pros as he did in the last two years of college.

That being said, our coaches have made it clear they intend to use his running abilities... so we'll just have to hope that he stays healthy!

that's a very fluid statement.. I fully believe they will take advantage of his athletic ability (i.e., roll outs), but I do not expect they were referring to adding a dozen plays out of the wildcat.

Rivera said something along the lines of not just on scrambles but also as a runner with the ball that made it sound like they were not just talking about a Freeman/Big Ben gameplan but maybe a bit more VYish? I dunno.

And they should. He is a great runner. To not use those attributed would be foolish. Just don't use them 20 times a game. More like 10.
