When someone says they're a football player it means they put the team first, a W, and anything to achieve that win.

[B]What do you not get???[/b] He's not telegraphing he wants to play wideout, he wants to fuging win. That's not the reason the Panthers are 1-3

His ceiling? QB win off mainly their arm

Cam not a WR, so he shouldn't be lined up out there. He's not a defensive cornerback, so he shouldn't be out there either

Lets limit this icon bullshit and win some games

I have no interest in comparing Newton to traditional QBs. He doesn't compare. What makes Newton special is his uniqueness.

Cam Newton runs. It is part of what makes him special. Why some are against him being special is nuts.

Big Ben wins with more than just his arm, Steve Young won with more than just his arm....Cam is just a more extreme variation.

You want to win games? Give Newton a defense.....great NFL coaches have repeatedly said defense is how you help a great QB.

having a good defense is how you help any good qb.

the great ones can win despite their defense.

i'm gonna ask this as i finish zipping up my flame suit...

...what is the difference between cam newton, vince young, and michael vick?

i have yet to see what cam newton is doing that is going to revolutionize the game.

now if he ever grasps the mental side of the game like manning, brady, brees, and rogers...couple that with his physical abilities and [b][i]then[/i][/b] i can understand him being once in a lifetime player.

but i don't see him progressing in that direction.

he looks like nothing more than a stat collecting machine.
[/quote]

That is easy. Vick is built like a WR....Young built like you or me. Newton? Newton is a genetic physical freak built like a tank with agility....he is a physical mismatch the league has NEVER been presented with.....

And all those QBs you mentioned didn't grasp the mental aspect 20 games into a career....many where still bench warmers or works in progress. People want Cam to have this game figured out to the degree a current elite 10 yr vet does....which is comical.

i can't believe all the people who constantly want to put newton into a box. even those fans who supposedly think he's the greatest of all time.

No...the great ones all don't. Especially early in their career.....the ones who won early did it with D.....some greats win it late in their career despite it.

Brees won late with D, Brady won with D, Eli won with D.....and some greats like Marino never won.

Name a great QB who won with bad D. Peyton? How many years in did it take him to get good enough? Name a young QB who won with bad D.

If I could PIE the OP 100000 times I'd do it.

This is the best post of the season. Yes, yes, yes some more.

The wildcat is complete horse poo. It's a joke of an offense. fuging horrible to have a QB who could throw for 300 yards in his sleep on any defense and the high octane receivers we do along with $50 MILLION worth of RB and chud continues this QB read option wildcat horse poo
[/quote]

Yeah, having the best rushing attack in the NFL is poo isn't it.....why have one of the best ground attacks in NFL history. lets be normal instead.

name a team with a better rushing attack since Cam arrived? You can't yet spin it as a negative

To be fair, there have been times this season where their play could hardly be considered football.
