Here's what I dont want Cam doing... and believe me this is VERY possible:
Everyone keeps telling
how much he needs to listen to tutors and teachers and qb gurus and veteran qbs. What I dont want to happen is that he starts worrying so much about doing things that everyone is telling him, that he doesnt do what comes natural to him... and thats play football and WIN.
Jimmy Clausen was GROOMED since he was a child to be a professional quarterback... and the jury is still out on him. How many guys had wonderful promise... and have done all the established things that people wanted them to do and they continued to struggle.
As far as Physical-talent, Cam Newton is not like anything the league has every seen... combining power, speed, and ability to throw the ball as well as anyone in the league right now. And he knows how to win. This kind of player, you cant try to mold him into a conventional quarterback. That doesnt mean that you dumb down the position because someone can run fast... but it doesnt mean that you force a player NOT to use his skills to make something happen when nothing is there.
We're not talking about a kid who just looks good in workouts... but in the game, with adversity, on the big stage... the kid delivers. 51 TD's (30 passing, 20 rushing, and 1 Rec.)
It speaks volumes that quarterbacks like Brett Favre have expressed a desire to WANT to work with this guy. But I dont want him to pull a Tiger Woods and start changing his swing.
