Cams pro bowl

Even Aaron Rodgers said they did Cam dirty last night, they had a quote from him on First Take.

Rodgers actually predicted it.....that was the quote before the game. Said it sucks to be the last guy in b/c you can't predict who will suddenly see $ signs and come after you. Totally different scenario then the bs he would face as teh starter. NFC never went there......AFC did.

I am still pretty irritated about it all. Was looking forward to see Cam ball one last time this year and he just got shafted.

Never seen that much consistent pressure on a QB in my days, much less the Pro Bowl. AFC came after him, and the NFCs OL line just stayed the same.

As I said yesterday, I wish Ryan would have been in so we would have at least had some protection.

he didn't criticize cam.

He said cam's accuracy is beautiful when his footwork is good.

Cam often throws the ball when he can't step into his throws, and it does affect his accuracy.

These are cold hard facts that anybody who is watching, knows.

But cause it's mayock, he's "opening criticizing".

Nobody knew a year ago, if cam would put in the work required to be a good qb in the nfl. That is why mayock was sucking his knob a year ago. Mayock also said, if cam would put in the work required, that cam can be one of the best in the game. He said that a year ago.

Amazing how you and others only focus on the things that mayock said cam needs to work on (which cam does need to work on), and ya ignore all the glowing comments he made about cam.

Stop being a biased, bitter fan.

Sorry, I watched NFLN enough to see the type of character Mike Mayock is. The man is straight up anal and very narrowminded. He is also very smug and condescending. He seems very shallow, IMO. And I've had that opinion of him long before Cam came into the picture.

Mike has nothing else to hold unto when it comes to Cam, so being so anal over his footwork is the only thing he has left. My question is, why can't there be other reasons for Cam miss-throws besides his footwork? And why did he feel the need to talk about non-stop with Cam. Yet said nothing about how the other QBs were playing, except to rave over the vets and praise Dalton's work eithics.

Also, where did the ASSUMPTION that Cam didn't have good work eithics come from in the first place? Why should I believe Cam's work ethics are any better or worst than Andrew Luck or Blaine Gabbert's? Because folks like Mayock say so? If Mayock want us to believe that Dalton has great work eithics simply because his college coach said so, then why are we made to be cynical when Cam's coaches from Auburn, Blinn, and UF all said the same thing about his work ethics and influence on his team-mates?

Even when the Panthers' coach, Ron Rivera, who did his research on Cam, stated what he found, folks like Mayock had this smug, "will see" attitude as if they wanted the world to judge Cam based on nothing more than their constant and empty comparison to Jamarcus Russell.

Don't be surprised the AFC went in on Cam. Other players in the league are turned off by Cam's arrogance. He acts as if he done something. Truth is he's the QB for one of the worst franchises in the NFL. What has he done to justify him being such a overbearing ass? Celebrating like a buffoonish idiot after every good play....

He's mediocre at best and has no idea of how to react to complicated defensive schemes. He's all chuck and pray for the best.

Damn, I grew up despising Joe Montana and never in my life convinced myself of such dumb ish some of you post about Cam about him. I'm amazed at the level of hate and anger some of u have towards Cam. U're desire to take any little thing negative thing about him and make so much while playing down his accomplishments is shocking.

Anyway, I remembered convincing myself Joe was arrogant and really not that talented. Until one day, I finally had to accept the fact that it was me and not him with problem.

Maybe one day you'll do the same with Cam.

What is so LOL is how much the Cam Newton haters are trying to now make the Pro-Bowl such a valid game when just a couple of days ago it was poo. Anything to feed their misguided anger.

I hope so, I like him; but, quite honestly, watching him yesterday, I felt like his ego was writing checks his performance couldn't cash.

It was a bad bad performance on any level.

I believe that is the first time I have heard boos at the pro bowl, albeit they also booed Ben and Rodgers at the beginning, it was sustained for Newton.

A check down or two would have helped that.

Wow..are u serious..

The truth is, when these men go to play football in a regular season, they prepare themselves mentally. That is the problem with the Pro-Bowl. It's suppose to be like a game of tag football but when it gets close to the end and money is on the line, some turn into "beast-mode."

I guess if Cam was told that this game was a very light-hearted game and he took it like that mentally, it's not always easy to automatically switch into "beast-mode" just for a few minutes.

Did you noticed that the O-line barely held up against the AFC defense? Also, it seem more like the boos were coming, not when Cam had his hand on the ball, but when the defense kept up the attack and the ball had to go back the other way.

Anyway once again, so much is being made over Cam and everything he did or didn't do. I seriously wonder if it was Luck would so much be made out of the Pro-Bowl and how he played. Seriously

I know it's the pro bowl but this is the national stage and cam looks real bad.

He looked bad because he's Cam Newton and so much is made over every ish he does. Do you really feel so much would be made over yesterdays game and how a rookie played if it was say, Andrew Luck?

I mean, it was the PRO-BOWL. And Cam had the worst end of the deal because his side didn't push back against the AFC started to play hard. he didn't even have a running game.

In the meantime, how did Dalton play? His whole game was pass the ball except for two throws. Maybe the NFC should have practiced their passing game instead of just their gunslinging game, just in case. But in all seriousness, look who Cam was following, two gunslingers who had all day in the pocket to sling the ball around in the first two rounds.

It's clear the AFC practiced their running game more because they only had one real gunslinger on their side and that was Big Ben.

Pretty broad statement, considering he didn't even make the top ten rookie QB list. Granted he made a lot of records on the quantity side, but he made none on the quality side such as completion percentage, accuracy or passer rating.

First off, you failed at using the quote function... its just one button you have to click & maybe some cleanup, yet you screwed that up...

Now then, debut, (For people who don't have trouble figuring out quoting on boards,) that would be the first regular season game he played. It was a loss, but, 24/37, 422 yards, 2 TDs, 1int. He also rushed for a td.

Btw, have you come to terms with how sad it is that you are so insecure you have to show up after the fact to talk poo?

Eta: Oh... My... Fuggin...

Dude! That article you used as a source is from 2004!!!!!

Bwaaaahahaha!

Oooooh you got a lil derp on your herp there.

All i saw out of Dalton was some side throws to a WR with 1 or 2 lob throws where Marshall made crazy catch. Didnt see one vertical down the field pass.

Not defending Mayock but Cam was the only one with a shitty game. Only makes sense he was the only one criticized

really about the only conclusions we can draw about the two young quarterbacks at the pro bowl that could possibly hold any water are that 1. newton needs to work on his footwork because he's a mess when he doesn't set his feet and 2. andy dalton has a wet noodle for an arm on par with jimmy clausen. this was a problem in the playoffs too-he rainbows passes and seemingly doesn't have the arm strength to put it in front of his receivers on deep routes. on marshall's circus catch for instance, his man was actually open and the ball was thrown into single coverage but he rainbowed it and the other DB had time to make it over. that's a surefire pick nine times out of ten but marshall's heads up play on the ball and the DBs running into each other saved him.

basically if there was a machine that injection molded west coast offense quarterbacks andy dalton would be the default die that shipped with it. he's good at what he does but not terribly versatile. kevin kolb-ish.
