Auburn...decide for yourself. If you focus on him as a playmaker, you probably liked him. If you focus on him as an NFL QB, you might think he lacks work ethic.

Why?

Why?

That post was schizophrenic

I don't disagree with us being #32 given how bad we were last year. But to question Cam Newton's work ethic after the guy was essentially demoted to a JUCO and then was able to ascend back to the national status that he did in only what...2 years is absurd. The kid has as much work ethic as anyone else out there.

Why?

Because he didn't work on the things he needed to be successful at the next level, in many people's opinion.

For example, his footwork was terrible the whole year, showing that he thought he didn't need better footwork to win, which he didn't, but he didn't improve an area of weakness and was instead content on relying on his other natural abilities to make plays, like his escapability and arm strength.

It can be argued that if he had the great work ethic people are claiming, he would have been working on that during the season and improving each week.

Too many people here focused on the results in college and not the details.

Does that clear it up?

I would be fine with getting the 1st pick again. We then land a monumental deal for someone that wants Andrew Luck and load up on picks then swag

You do realize with that logic you can argue every QB coming out of college has no work ethic. If thet have a weak part in their game ( and almost every single one does)....then you can claim they were lazy bc they did show dramatic improvement over the course of one season in regards to that weak spot. If Cam's coaches made that weakness a focus.....from shared know of Cam all signs point to the fact he would have worked hard on it

For example, your logic would suggest The Golden Calf of Bristol is lazier and has a worse work ethic than Cam....The Golden Calf of Bristol spent years at FL with no dramatic improvement in certain aspects

Way to sensationalize the point.

And no, that logic cannot be applied to everyone coming out of college.

It's easier to improve footwork throughout the season than it is to entirely change your throwing motion, but hey, keep posting.

It can be applied to everyone coming out if you are looking for a way to claim someone has a poor work ethic....and nothing legit is there to point out. Pretty sure if the Auburn staff was concerned Cam would have worked on it (not that there was a lot of time for that considering he just came into the program and put the team on his back). I mean he was there for one season.....how lazy of him not to perfect his came in a year. You don't go undefeated in the SEC and carry a team like that just bc you are a naturally good athlete. You are reaching

So he's not a self starter?

I thought he was going to revolutionize the position, wouldn't that mean he was more than just a good athlete? The likes of him has never been seen, he's quite posisbly the best athlete ever and considering that it's not far fetched that he could rely on his natural ability.

I didn't want him to perfect it, just show some improvement. If anything, his footwork got worse as the season went on.

Oh well. You win. Can't wait for football to be played.

Stop acting like you were watching Cam's footwork the entire season. If you were paying him any attention you would've seen he didn't have many chances to sit there and throw with a perfect stance. In fact when he starts playing in the NFL he'll do a lot more throwing off balance with the faster defenders coming at him. Are you really trying to tell us Cam has no work ethic because his footwork didn't dramatically improve the one year in college or just your usual troll in the park? Just search for Cam at IMG and that should tell you something.
