Cam Newton is the Greatest Rookie QB of All Time

71 posts in this topic

No homerism, no BS...

Is he perfect? Absolutely not. Is his the best QB in the league right now? Absolutely not.

But for a franchise that has endured guys like Randy Fasani, David Carr, & Brian St. Pierre line up behind center, a lot of people on here sound like sniveling nozzles concerning Cam.

Grow up and be a true Panthers fan! Newton is the best thing in 16 years to happen to the Panthers. That is not exaggeration. He is a rookie, and still has a way to go, but I honestly believe he will win a Superbowl here.

And the comparisons to Andy Dalton, or The Golden Calf of Bristol, or any other young QB out there is absurd and insulting.

Andy Dalton will be a good QB in the NFL, but his ceiling stops several stories short of Newton's. All 32 GM's in the league would back that statement.

The Golden Calf of Bristol is a pop culture phenomenom. Good for him. It's a nice ride, The Golden Calf of Bristol's a good guy, obviously a good leader and motivator, but anyone who has an IQ over 100 should be able to discern the lasting ability of this run is on par with a roller coaster. Fun and exciting, but it ain't going last.

Jake Delhomme made a Superbowl and 2 NFC Championship Games. I love Jake and will always. 2003 was the best roller coaster of my sports life, and it may always be, even if the Panthers win a SB. It was truly unbelievable. But the success, as we all know, did not and could not last. Jake's will to win simply was not enough to long-term cover his deficiencies at QB.

Jake and The Golden Calf of Bristol have a lot of similarities. The Golden Calf of Bristol has had some short-term success and has already done things beyond what seemed possible given his incredible short comings as a passer. But the truth is he, like Jake, will never be elite. Simple truth- and you can't consistently be good in today's NFL w/o an elite QB.

We learned that with Jake the hard way. You invest a lot of emotion b/c Jake wanted it so bad and so did we. Jake led comebacks when he really shouldn't have. He almost won a SB.

BUT IT ISN'T SUSTAINABLE LONG-TERM!!! If you have watched the Panthers for the last decade, you KNOW this!! So it's crazy people will debate this, especially Panther fans.

John Fox and John Elway both know this too. That is why they want to focus on the present, not the future, b/c there is none.

Cam Newton is sustainable, and he has already shown stretches of being elite during his transformative season.

So get behind your franchise QB!! If you honestly don't believe Cam Newton is the best option the Panthers could possibly have, you are either ignorant or racist.

Come on- I bleed Black and Blue... There are a lot of Panther fans on here who feel this way too. I pity those who don't.

Ben Roethlisberger

Is not relevant to this discussion in any way. And I could have led that Steelers team to the AFCC game his rookie season, that defense was loaded.

Jake Delhomme was not as bad as you seem to think.

Somehow, the 6 turnover collapse in the Arizona playoff game completely destroyed his career. But he has a long stretch as an above average to good quarterback in the NFL.

JD was my favorite Panther during our "good" years. The crap that he got from this fanbase for the last few wasn't unwarranted, but I felt was a bit harsh. However, I realize that what we have in Cam will most likely turn out to be 5x better than what we had in Jake. Cam is not one of those guys who has all the talent in the world but doesn't care about winning - you could argue that many in this league have that attitude. Cam has demonstrated that he has an unmatchable drive to get the W, no matter if he throws for 400 or 100 yards. This combined with his talent - something Jake didn't have as much of - will propel our franchise to the Lombardi sometime within the next 10 years.

How is it not relevant to the discussion? I'm saying Roethlisberger is the greatest rookie QB of all time.

I like how OP warns everyone that if you disagree with him, your IQ is less than 100 and you are an ignorant racist.
