Cam Newton Is NEXT!

My fav!

"I had people taking shots at my character, classifying me as a thug, as a hoodlum. After Week 3 or 4, all these same people wanted an interview. I said, 'You were giving me all this crap and had so much to say about how I was gonna play, and now you wanna talk? No. Just sit back and watch the show, man.'"

I love this quote, I feel the same way when I see players post there plans to go out, on twitter, after a lost.

"It just affects me so much when I see people smiling after the game, making plans to go out. I'm not used to it, and I want that type of mentality to be unanimous around here."

Say what you want. Newton throws other people under the bus A LOT. If he can learn ONE thing from his PR manager it's not to even MENTION other players in ANY negative light. "I hate seeing other players making plans to go out", the media doesn't need to know that, it just makes him seem like he's putting himself on a pedestal, plus the quote about Vince and Jamarcus, he didn't have to mention them specifically he could've just said "because of what others have done before me".

But hey I know Cam is Cam and people are going to defend what he says no matter what b/c of his great play. (Which might I add I'm LOVING 130%)

Man I love these quotes.......

"People are gonna respect the Panthers," says Newton. "And I want what I do as a quarterback to be scary. I want people to be in fear. I want it, and I'm gonna get it. But I realize now it's a process."

This resonates so much with me. It's not like my life and week is ruined when we lose, but it definitely bums me the **** out. How could it not? But when we win it's just incredible. To be a winning team year in and year out is something we have NEVER had. For that to become normal would just be out of this world awesome.

Valid criticism, especially the part about JaMarcus and Vince, but Cam will mature and grow smarter with his words. Very good article tho.

Glad you see where I'm coming from. I'm sure he will. I love that cocky/ "swaggerific" demeanor he has though to an extent. If he can turn this organization into one that is FEARED that would be a dream come true in the football aspect of my life lol :eek6: Let's just hope he can be a LEADER and not attempt to overdose on the role and try to play Rent a Cop with too much power lol. (IMO I know people get tired of Ray Lewis talking (pretty sure I've even read a player say it once))

"Some people are afraid to say what they want, but I'm not," says Newton. "I want to be the symbol of success in this league. I want to win multiple Super Bowls. To get there, you have to have a relentless will to be something far greater than what you are. You gotta have that edge."

The work ethic, that's the key to Cam's and the Panther's long term goals.

Hope Cam continues to succeed and find success so easy.

Or we're all going to be leaping off tall buildings.

He could maybe internalize that fire just a bit. :p
