Did anyone hear what Meril Hodge had to say...

I like Hoge a lot and do consider him to be one of the better, more informed analysts on ESPN - but I doubt he's going to change his tune about Cam in fear of losing face.
I'm totally surprised by Cams performances, but let's try to keep it in perspective guys. 2 games, don't crown him yet.
I really don't see why folks are surprised by Cam's performance when he was doing the same thing pretty much through-out college. And what crown are we placing on his head? That he deserves a chance to play at the QB positions that is readily handed to guys like Blaine Gabbert, Eli Manning, and Matt Safford.
I don't see why the test for Cam to be accept as a legit QB in this league is made three times more difficult than what the Sam Bradfords or even worst the Andrew Lucks...Who pretty much is guaranteed a spot at the head QB table with the likes of Peyton and Tom Brady without even proving he can play the game on the NFL level, have to go through. Heck I watched Sam play last night and he is a work in progress. So is Eli but no one is saying they don't belong or they still need to prove themselves.
The level this ish with Cam has gone too is ridiculous and the fact that it's so easily accepted without much pushback in this time and day is very disturbing.

the only guy i'm interested in hearing from about cam is mayock and he's supposed to be talking about breakout rookies. pretty much every one of his criticisms of newton has been proven to be BS so far so i'm interested to see how this "guru" spins it or if he mans up and admits he was wrong.

whether this guy praises or hates on Cam Newton, has no affect on him one way or the other because the only person that can control that is Cam, so this matters because???
from a fan's perspective, i just want his critics to be seen for the narrow minded people they are.
