You can look at his hands and tell they dont fit a 6'6 beast. They look like artists hands. . no homo n poo man, his hands look slender. Ahh this probably all nonsense whatever, but how did he do in rain games at Auburn and Blinn? Lol good enough to win championships I guess, but Im curious to know if he has any issues with it. That is the only kryptonite I see so far though just because I havnt seen him ball out in shitty conditions. . . and for some reason I thought that might be an advantage scenerio for him.

Amazing how everybody goes to questioning the defense when the offense is scoring all day in the redzone to questioning the QB when he throws back-to-back picks.

Davis should get a job with Carolina as a LB coach when his last play finally occurs, whenever that is. We owe him that.

We don't owe him a thing, most teams would have sent him packing by now and we took care of him financially anyway.

However, I do think he'd be a good addition to the coaching staff.

Did Cam have any games where he thrived in the rain last year? I dont recall any good ones but I only remember one. He does have small hands for his size. Might make it hard to grip the ball right or something. Might even be as simple as how he takes the snap from center. Whether the laces hit right on the hand or whatever.

Then again might be nothing at all since we're just getting going. . .

Oh yeah there is also the whole Chud is opening the playbook feeding Cam thousands of new probabilites that he is just now testing out. Yeah me personally, I dont do so consistently well, the first time I test out a new strategy.

A very small size for them is 8 and a half inches like alex smith. Brett Favre though has huge hands at 10 5/8 inches.

Cam hand size is 9 7/8" Hands

Andrew Luck 10 inches

RGIII 9 1/2 inches

Kolb 9 1/4 inches

Vick 8 1/2

Mcnabb 10 inches

Drew Brees 10 1/4 inches

In the ballyhooed quarterback class of 1999 that included Culpepper, Tim Couch’s hand was 9 7/8, Donovan McNabb’s hand was 10-0, Akili Smith’s was 9¾ and Cade McNown’s was 9 3/8.

A list of other quarterbacks and their hand sizes includes Brad Johnson (10 1/8), Patrick Ramsey (10-0), David Carr (9¾), Joey Harrington (9¾), Trent Dilfer (9 5/8), Jay Fiedler (9½), J.T. O’Sullivan (9½), Jake Plummer (9¼) and Chris Chandler (9¼).

One of the largest measures of any quarterback drafted in the first round was the 11¼ of Jim Druckenmiller. He was a bust, as was Heath Shuler (10 5/8 ). David Klingler (9¼) had a small hand and flopped.

So taking those numbers into account i would say his hand size is above or right about average for an NFL quarterback.

For the poster who asked about "indoor facilities" at Wofford ... no, we don't have an indoor football facility. At times, during thunderstorms (with lightning, etc.), for example, practice has been taken indoors to the basketball arena. Not that conducive to productive practicing.

Thanks. And no, I don't imagine a basketball court would be very conducive to 7 on 7 drills.

Interesting...how do his other body parts stack up? Just an academic question, of course.... :D

Not hating on Cam....he is a stud. But, I hope that he does not get over confident and cavalier with the ball. I know it is just TC, but I am reading about an awful lot of interceptions. Hell, he has thrown 2 to DT's in just 3 practices.

I don't know about the one to Fua, but the one to Johnson sounds like it was a designed screen all the way to Smitty and Johnson just sniffed it out perfectly. Usually in those kind of situations, the offensive tackle is more at fault. The Fua play was a screen too but not sure if it was all the way out there to a receiver or just to a halfback.

I'm not too worried yet. I'd rather him get the mistakes out of his system now rather than try to play it too safe out there. Not saying I LIKE him throwing interceptions, but you get the point, I think. As the season wore on last year, Newton was much improved at not forcing the ball.

Newton may have gotten picked off a couple of times, but he had his share of good moments as well, and he had fun with them. Newton enjoyed a celebratory clap after Smith hauled in a touchdown pass over the middle, and when he scored on a rushing touchdown, he broke into "Bees' Knees," a dance style that originated in Charleston, S.C., in the 1920s.

For those not schooled in Roaring '20s dance crazes, Newton put his hands on his knees, pulled his knees together and then quickly switched his hands from knee to knee repeatedly.

Must have video
