Cam has already shown more potential in preseason than Jimmy did for the entire previous regular season. Of course I'm taking the pledge.

I support him as much as I supported Frank Reich, Kerry Collins, Steve Buerlien, Chris Weinke, Rodney Peete, Jake Delhomme, David Carr, Matt Moore, Jimmy Clausen...

No love for Vinny?

Or BSP?

Or Deangelo in that one ATL game?

I took that pledge in 1995, names were different but the pledge is the same.

This didn't go so well the last time :(

Pretty much.

My opinion: Newton isn't ready to start, and he'll be better off sitting and learning for a year, especially given that the team around him has looked borderline awful at times. Starting him now risks screwing up a player in whom we have a big time investment.

My allegiance: As a fan, I'm behind whomever is out there. We could sign and start Ryan Leaf, and while I might not like the decision I'd cheer for him and hope for his success.

That's fan life.

Everyone should stand behind their quarterback but we all now after 1 bad quarter everyone is going to throw him under the bus.

Disagree.

He might trip over you when he's dropping back :sosp:

newton's going to be fun to root for. even in rewatching all of his worst sequences in the preseason, he's showing (occasional) flashes of being one of the best QBs in the league very soon. i was all about luck and remember the epic event of watching his bowl game performance. cam's work in the early 2nd half in cinci showed pretty much all of the same qualities. the total package is within sight for this guy. it's really going to take him time to get comfortable in the passing game, but he has the potential to impact games significantly way before he is up to speed as a passer. i think his competitiveness will shine through and there will be a lot of good even in his first season.

This pledge is basically a promise to not criticize Newton for any of his mistakes this coming year, and his fanboys are hilarious in their homerism. Regardless, I envision Cam will become a better version of McNabb in three years and I'm excited about that. He's got my support.
