Agent: Tutoring of Cam Newton could be done by Brett Favre

Recommended Posts

So he's a hypocrite coach/tutor?

Awesome, who wouldn't want to learn from that.

How are Mike Shula's personal throwing mechanics right now? Did Rivera make him drop back and throw a few balls before he hired him for the QB coaching job?

Makes more sense to learn from mechanically sound HoF'ers and those who can relate to his style of play- such as Moon.

The whole idea of a " QB mentor " is to help with reading defensive schemes and help understanding plays.

Mechanics is what you have a QB coach for.

Since we are in the habit of collecting young QB's now a mentor is a pretty good idea. They all could benefit from it and that only makes them more valuable as backups or trade bait.

SFGF makes a great point about mentor vs. coach a lot of people have missed here (including myself)

Sounds like this is already taking place during the lockout. I'm too lazy to go through the other 6 pages to see if this has already been discussed.

Brett Favre has agreed to tutor Cam Newton during the lockout "as logistics permit." The two share the same agent in Bus Cook. “Brett has offered to do that before with Cam,” Cook told USA Today. “He would obviously be delighted to work with Cam. They’ve met and they’ve talked.”

Hard to argue with this move, certainly seems to be a move in the right direction for Newton, who also was tutored by quarterback guru George Whitfield and received some mentoring from football legend Warren Moon leading up to the draft. Being able to pick the brains of some of the best who’ve ever done it and take a little part of each game will be great for Newton, even if he is able to take just a bit from each and incorporate it into his game.

The Panthers have gone on record that they will alter their offense in some way to maximize Newton’s ability without giving much detail. How similar the Panthers offense will resemble the West Coast variation of offenses that Favre has ran nearly his entire career in Green Bay and Minnesota remains to be seen. This will most likely be to fine-tune some fundamentals and mechanics.

Earlier in the draft process, we got an inside glimpse from ESPN on Mike Vick tutoring fellow Virginia Tech Hokie quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Reflecting back on it, most of the input Vick was feeding Taylor was pertaining to a West Coast offense. Taylor winded up being selected by the Baltimore Ravens and a lot of the stuff Vick taught Taylor will not even apply to his NFL career.

The irony here is that Favre (336) and Moon (223) have combined for 559 career NFL interceptions. Hopefully the number one overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft can leave that tendency alone.

Before the draft I just wanted Moon to just shut up about all the bad press Cam was getting. Now that Cam is a Panther I would have to say he is probably the best option we have at someone to tutor him, at least we know he would have Cam’s best interest in mind. Not saying to bring him on as a coach but kind of pay him on the side type of thing.

Why are people getting so bent outta shape if he does? The guy is one of the best of all time. I hope its true.

You're not cool if you're a fan of Brett Favre, according to some.
