Cam Newton is overrated.

Sounds like a man who knows his team is soon to be an afterthought for about the next decade....

Newton isn't overrated. His record breaking season got little play as the major media opted to turn The Golden Calf of Bristol into the storyline he has become...

Kind of irrelevant to the topic, but kind of relevant. Cam is 'overrated' in NFLN top 100. I knew the haters with no lives would vote cam overrated.

Vick's game? Why would he do that....they aren't alike. Vick is a slim china doll that runs away from people with a big arm. Cam presents a completely unique matchup problem than Vick.

Im guessing you quoted the wrong person?? I didnt mention Vickles.

You could count on one hand the amount of fans that he had before the NFL draft but I forgot that everyone's a genius in foresight.

Not true, unless you are leaving a whole segment of people out. Cam had a lot of fans before the draft. He had a lot of haters that all looked the same.

His stats for yards and TDs speak for themselves.Overrated was a bad choice of words.

Some of these writers and talking heads need to create controversy to get attention.Skip Bayless admits that is the only thing that keeps him in TV.I see Joyner as more of the same.

Glad he is Carolina's over-rated player...can't think of too many teams in the NFL who would not love to have him.

Does he have work to do as last year was the first year in his craft....of course. Compare his rookie year to Jimmy Clausen's or Blaine Gabbert (who I think more than a few on this board wanted the Panthers to draft).

I'm glad Cam is our 'over-rated player'.

I play FF too....writer is trying to convince people not to draft him.

If we're being honest, NFL and football fan hype are generally to such ridiculous levels that even half-decent quarterbacks are elevated to the point of virtual godhood.

They're pretty much all overrated, and yes that includes Newton.

Folks should realize though that "overrated / overhyped" doesn't necessarily mean "bad". It just means that most folks who analyze them tend to maximize their talents and minimize their flaws. It's a fairly common phenomenon for guys who play on popular teams (Romo, Roethlisberger) and guys with a lot of "highlight reel" plays (Vick, Newton).

Bottom Line: Newton's still great. He just isn't perfect. And is he a tad overhyped? For the moment, probably. But I expect his game to try to catch up to the hype as his career progresses.

Of course, as he gets better, the hype will get even bigger.
