The great thing about Cam is, he always made it exciting. Even when we lost, I was still excited about the potential we have. In previous years, we would lose and it got to the point where I wasn't as pumped to watch the next game. I have watched every single game the last 6 years, and now you can expect some great plays every game. That is the Cam Effect, he always gives you the confidence that you can win every single game. RG3 will be the same for the Skins games, even though his has not taken a snap.

It came to a point in 2010, where id rather work on Sundays than watch the Panthers. That was my lowest point as a fan. But yea man, you think the show was exciting last year, just wait till this year. We're about to take off!

This is why drafting Kirk Cousins in the 4th round was the worst selection in the draft.

One or two bad games in a row, and the whispers will start.

Instead of using the pick to build around RG3, they waste it on another rookie QB, except this one has NO PRESSURE on him.

I got a feeling Cousins starts a game or two this year.


Cousins might start a couple....

Only concern with RGIII is he runs into contact....and he ain't built to do that in this league. So he may be a guy who misses a few to injury every year. I don't think that is a taught thing....just instinct when you run.

Look at how much hype RG3 is getting. The media is hyping him a lot higher than Luck. Why is that?? Its because of the "Cam Effect" on the NFL. The whole time leading up to Cam's rookie season, everyone was wondering how big of a bust he would be. Now, with RG3, everyone is looking at how big of a star he will be. Just goes to show you another example of the "Cam Effect". Welcome to the new era, where the Joe Montana and John Elway clone QBs may not be the most desired.


First Point: He was drafted by a team that always gets too much hype, that happens to play in a division that always gets too much hype.

Second Point: Cam Newton is a John Elway clone.

If RG3 is worried about some 4th round 3 string quarterback than he isn't the man everyone thinks he is. Here's the thing, he's not worried.


Cool. When did you talk to him?

I agree with this and I've posted this before.

Cam proved last season he can take a beating. His body is big enough, like Big Ben, to take hits. I mean he's usually bigger than the person delivering the hit FFS. RG3 could end up being like a Mike Vick type of player. Vick is good when healthy, but he also misses a couple of games of year.

If RG3 thinks he going to be able to drop back and then dive head first for the first down or run around like a chicken with his head cut off like he did for his entire career in the B12, dude is not going to make it through a season.

Grits is such a hypocrite. He always falls back on what the "experts" have to say or googles some article to use as a reference.

Well here is a reference for you moron: Every expert and analysis thought the Cousins pick was dumb.

Disagree.


Why?

Runners with big time arms that struggle with accuracy.

Winners, Athletes.

Marketable infectious smile.

Captivated a fanbase and gave the Broncos faith that they would win a SB with him at the helm.

They are literally the exact same player, although Cam may be a little better in the long run.

Cam has the same agility and sight as some of the elite RBs in the league. Elway did not have the moves Cam does. Im not saying Cam is better than Elway, just not really a good comparison.

Also Elway is the 4th leading passer of all time, not really considered a runner imo.

Yeah, John Elway was not the best person for the comparison. Elway was that guy back then....maybe not to the same extent but he was not a statue coming into the league....he was the athelete
